A perfect, quiet location nested right under the walls of the old cite, very friendly neighbours, amenities within walking distance, wonderful restaurants. You're not staying in a refurbished or renovated property so don't expect luxury. This is something that could be easily improved with some creative attention including much better mattresses, pillows, linen, addressing the damp, improving the kitchen facilities and removing what seems to be generational layers of hand-me-down clutter. Nevertheless it does have a quirky charm that could be significantly strengthened if these handicaps were addressed. Kieran was kind, helpful and immediately responsive. The local manager was friendly and extremely patient (we arrived unexpectedly very late but there she was welcoming us in!). All in all we'd rate this house as good rather than average because of the location, but there is no ranking for that.
Owner Kieran responded quickly and fully to all questions.
House is situated just below the ramparts of the City yet only 10 minutes interesting walk to La Bastide, and 15 minutes to either the train station or the bus terminal.
The house has been thoughtfully equipped and is very comfortable. The house itself defies description and one gets a real sense of history wondering about how many people lived in it at any one time in its past. Carcassonne is a fascinating city and a great launching pad for exploring the region, especially taking advantage of €1 bus tickets.
Great house in a lovely area just at the foot of the medieval La Cite. Home from home with everything that you could need. Highly recommended.
