“perfect holiday home in magical location”
Reviewed 25 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Our stay in 28 rue longue was an absolute delight! There is nothing really to add to the excellent reviews of this property except to thoroughly agree with all of them. We will be "spreading the word" around family and friends enabling them to experience the joys of Carcassone old and new. The pleasure of walking through a small front door into a spacious room with outstanding views of La Cite was the icing on the cake. Thanks Gail for the attention to detail in providing everything you could wish for to ensure a perfect holiday.

“Wonderful House - Amazing Location”
Reviewed 12 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

28 Rue Longue is just a delightful place to stay. You can't believe that you go through quite a small looking front door into the hall which then seems to go on forever, finally opening up into a lovely kitchen and living area and then out through french doors to the patio area and up steps to a peaceful lounging area. The surprise is the old (dry) well in the living area - thankfully covered with a metal grid and glass and fitted with a light so you can see into the depths! The beds were very comfortable which is so important. When you climb the old narrow staircase to the first and second floor bedrooms the view of the citadel all lit up at night is just breathtaking. I don't really need to say anything else. Gail has thought of everything and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her lovely property and would happily stay there again.

“Perfect for our stay in Carcassonne”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed in Rue Longue for a week as our daughter was getting married in the Hotel de la Cite which is just over the wall behind the house. It was perfect for our needs and was very comfortable. Gail allowed us to rent it from a Wednesday to a Wednesday as the wedding was on the Saturday, which most rentals don't allow. The style and decor of the property is very nice indeed as are the facilities. A real home from home. We really hope to go back again as our week was manic with the wedding and we haven't had the chance to look around and enjoy Carcassonne. Parking is a nightmare though!

“A House Full of Character.”
Reviewed 7 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed for 3 nights before moving on to Barcelona. The house was easy to find and once we got through the front door, everything opened up. The living space was comfortable and spacious - although we spent the most of the first evening in the garden. The bedrooms where nicely furnished. As the house was so near to the Citadel we spent a couple of evenings just wandering around the ramparts and alleyways.
The owner supplied a lot of very useful information prior to our departure. Also provided was milk, coffee and very nice bottle of wine so we could at least have a drink before exploring Carcassonne.

“Ideal”
Reviewed 23 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed at 20 rue longue for a short break en route to the grau du roi and Nimes. The rental was ideal for a family of 5 adults. The property is spacious, clean, well maintained and has an individual style with oak beams and feature well, TV/DVD and good wifi.
There are 3 double en-suite bedrooms and opportunities to cook and eat in or outside in a secluded courtyard with views of the city walls. There are restaurants and small shops within 5 to 10 minutes walk and the property is within 20 to 30 minutes walk of the new town, Canal du Midi bike hire and boat trips and the fascinating old City, shops and restaurants. We had thought it would be difficult to find free on road car parking but it wasn't, the airport is only 20 mins by Agglo bus and the railway station is a 25 min walk.
We found this an ideal spot to relax, recharge and enjoy the town. It might be difficult if you have mobility issues. There is a ground floor bedroom, but the ground floor is split level. The old city is a steep uphill walk.

“Perfect place to stay in Carcassonne”
Reviewed 19 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I don't often feel compelled to write reviews, but this place was so fantastic I would absolutely recommend it!

I stayed here with my mum and sister and we were all blown away by how beautiful the property is, and despite it's great age, how convenient, spacious and comfortable it is.

The location is wonderful and the views are spectacular. Despite being so close to the Cite, it was incredibly peaceful. The owner was incredibly helpful and the apartment has loads of really useful information for visitors to the area.

Would recommend to anyone planning a trip to Carcassonne!

“Terrific Location, Great House”
Reviewed 18 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This house has the most amazing location, a very short walk to the stair to the ramparts at Carcassonne. The house is lovely, with modern kitchen & good bathrooms. The garden catches the afternoon sun and has great vies of the ramparts.
