If you look up you think you could almost touch the castle ramparts
If you tire of eating out you can always eat in your own restaurant
The views are just as impressive from the castle.
Give your feet a rest, with a trip along the canal du Midi.

Seeing a concert within the castle walls can be the highlight of a trip
Circulade villages were built around a castle, this one is close to Carcassonne

“Great location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We really enjoyed our stay in beautiful Carcassonne. The Monet apartment is in a super location, on a quiet little street looking out at the walls of the cite. It is also well placed for little shops and restaurants, and for the bridge taking you across to the newer area of the city. The apartment is a comfortable size for 2 people - a bit of a squeeze for 4, but we didn't find that a problem for the 3 days of our stay. It is clean and well maintained and Inga is a pleasure to deal with. I would have no hesitation in recommending Monet as a place to stay, and Carcassonne is amazing!

“Good location - pity about the damp patches”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed at Renoir for one week at the end of October, a last minute booking. We were met in by Inga,who kindly took us to a supermarket on the way back. The apartment was well located in a quiet street just below La Cite. About 20 mins walk to the centre of the town and 25 mins to the station, but only 10 mins to La Cite. Ideally located if only staying 2 or 3 days, but we found during our longer stay making for the station or city buses to visit elsewhere meant a lot of walking! The apartment had a very well fitted out kitchen and bathroom. However, it was dark, usually needing the lights to be on during the day (typical old French house), and we could hear footsteps from the apartment above. The worst thing was that there were several large damp patches on one wall in the lounge area, which wasn’t pleasant to look at. Inga explained that they were aware of this and had left an airwick with us to try and alleviate the damp smell. However, we used this in the bathroom instead, as this was unventilated and opened up straight into the kitchen! Inga gave us a discount in view of our last minute booking, but in view of the damp problem, we feel a further discount could have been offered to us. But we enjoyed our week exploring Carcassonne – the old medieval Cite is truly amazing - and the area around.

Customer satisfaction is always our top priority, however these guests
have made some comments which are very misleading, contradictory and
incorrect.

The apartment is located in the popular Trivalle district below the
Medieval Cite and is indeed a ten minute walk into the Cite. However,
the town centre is a comfortable fifteen minute walk as previous
reviews have stated. We would suggest that most people would not
regard a ten or fifteen minute walk as "a lot of walking".

It is an old privately owned apartment building and whilst the
ceilings and floors are well insulated there will be some occasional
noise from the apartment above. If the shutters are kept closed any
apartment will be dark but there is plenty of light in the apartment.

The wall in the living room was not damp when these guests arrived. We
pointed out to them the large stain on the living room wall caused by
a leaking pipe in the neighbouring property which had been recently
repaired. We decided not to paint over the stain as it could be an
unpleasant odour for the guests. This work has subsequently been
carried out.

The bathroom is most certainly ventilated and is a legal requirement.
It has a small window and a mechanical ventilation system as does the
kitchen.

These guests have clearly strived to find negative comments in the
hope of extracting discount on the price although they didn't have the
courtesy to talk to us directly despite plenty of opportunity to do
so.

We would ask potential guests to read other guest reviews for a more
balanced viewpoint.

“A perfect few days”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed in the Renoir apartment for a holiday break in Carcassone. It is well located in a street full of French flavour and only a short walk to the old city. We found the apartment to be very comfortable and met all our needs. Friendly owner Inge both met and returned us to the airport which was much appeciated.

“Great little place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I stayed here for 11 days. The apartment is neat, tidy and well equipped. It is ideally situated at the foot of the Medieval City which is a 10 minute walk away and only a 15 minute walk from the centre of Carcassonne over the old foot bridge. It is near the beautiful park which runs along side the Aude river. Inga and Mick are lovely hosts and even dropped me at the airport

This is a lovely review but to avoid confusion for future guests, the town centre is a comfortable 10-15 minutes walk and the Cite is 5 minutes up a cobbled street. These guests obviously took their time and enjoyed the sights en route.

Nice to hear that these guests appreciate the excellent location of the apartment and the high standards of accommodation we provide and maintain. We are surprised with the comment about lack of outside sitting space as this is not advertised with this apartment. If outside space is a priority we would recommend our apartment Cezanne, which has a private outside roof terrace (property no: 352067). We would like to point out that there are plenty of restaurants, cafes and beautiful spots along the River Aude to sit outside within a few minutes walk of the apartment.

We have guests from all over the world with many different priorities, some choose our apartments because they are centrally located and car hire is not necessary whilst others use us as a base to explore the region, particularly the Cathar castles.
