My husband and I, along with our 23-year-old son, stayed in Sally's lovely suite on Sunday, April 15th, 2012. We had only one day/night in Carcassonne and it proved to be a memorable one due to weather. We visited the fortress in the afternoon when it began to rain and a full-fledged thunderstorm with horizontal sleet broke out when we were at the top with very little shelter. My son claims it to be the highlight of the trip!! However, Sally's B&B was a welcome & cozy place to come into after the storm and her warm hospitality matched her charming suite. She had coffee available for us in the sitting room. Two bedrooms + sitting room + bathroom were available for us, with full breakfast of croissants, fresh fruit, yogurt, granola & jams, orange juice, coffee & tea served in a separate dining area. We were able to park on the street overnight at no charge and got a spot almost directly in front of her place. Also, because it was Sunday, there were a limited number of restaurants open (mostly in La Cite) and Sally took time to go through her card file and recommend a couple to us. We ended up having dinner at the Adelaide restaurant which was my favourite meal of our two-week trip. Sally.....and Carcassonne......I have good memories of our time with you!
