It looks as good in real life as it does in the pictures! This is an enormously comfortable place to stay just beneath the wonderful ramparts of Carcassonne.We had a lovely time here - we appreciated being on the first floor as it meant we could look down on the street, tho this might be an issue is you have mobility challenges. The owners are very welcoming with very good local knowledge and advice, and the city itself is a treat. Book it - you won't be disappointed.
What a place! Ideally situated for both the old town (c. 600BC) or the new (c. 1200AD) with both just a few minutes walk away. Inga the owner was great, picked us up from the airport and took us to the apartment, explaining where everything was on the way... Le Cité is fantastic despite all the garish yellow adornments to celebrate 20 years as a World Heritage Site, although these did make more sense when we got to the Porte de l'Aude (see photo). Across the Pont Vieux is the Citadel or new city, with great cafes and a huge market in the main square on Saturdays. All in all, a brilliant place to stay - we'll be back!
We had a very enjoyable weekend in Carcassone. Inga kindly picked us all up from the airport which involved two separate journeys. Everything was in the apartment you could need and perfectly situated with a stunning view of the Castle
Really appreciated being collected from the rail station. Inga gave us a running commentary as we drove to the apartment, pointing out the places to buy our morning bread. Apartment had everything needed, and Inga was readily available online to answer any questions. View of the castle from the apartment window (esp at night) was stunning.
Excellent base for a long weekend in Carcassonne with a short walk to the Cité and also the Bastide.
Well laid out apartment with everything we needed and great views of the castle. Inga was also very friendly and helpful!
Would highly recommend.
Great apartment just right for our requirements, 5 adults & 1 child, fantastic location amazing view. The owners were great picked us up & dropped us off at the airport, lots of local information on taxis, shopping, things to do etc. Already planning our next visit.
