We booked this in the light of the huge number of positives for the B&B. It certainly has splendid views from its terrace and the owners were very friendly and helpful but we felt that the actual accommodation was overpriced and average. The main problem was that the room we had (I can't speak for the other rooms) faced onto... More

Believe all the good things you read about it. We spent three nights here in May and wished we had planned for a few more. While the highlight here is the patio where you can sit and have a wonderful view of the castle, especially when it is lit up at night, spend time looking at the pictures and furnishings... More

My husband and I had a wonderful visit to Carcassonne, thanks in large part to the lovely La Posada del Castillo and its owners Enrique and Lola. Nestled at the foot of Carcassonne's ramparts this lovingly restored bed and breakfast is a few minutes uphill walk from the "backdoor" into the medieval centre of the city. Our room was spacious,...

I'm not a person who normally chooses to stay in B&Bs, mostly because I've found some of the stereotypes (shared baths, hovering hosts, musty doilies) to be true. But that's absolutely NOT the case here! A friend chose La Posada, and I'm so glad he did! Staying at La Posada is like staying at the lovely home of wonderful friends,... More

The rave reviews are all true! The location is fabulous, the hosts couldn't be nicer or more helpful. We learned so much about Carcassonne and the region from Enrique. The dinner that Lola and Enrique served on the patio under the lights of the castle was magical. Unfortunately, we missed our first night at La Posada because of flight delays.... More

This B&B is in the most fabulous location - it sits at the bottom of the Medieval wall surrounding the old city of Carcassonne. The view from the patio at night when lights flood the wall is just magical! It is close to the "backdoor" entrance to the old city and out of the most touristy area. Enrique and Lola... More

We recently spent 3 nights with Enrique and Lola and were just so impressed with their knowledge of the Castle and the area, places to see and where to eat!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You will find this hidden gem tucked away in the picturesque quarter known as La Barbacane and it is here that visitors from all around the world choose to stay in the heart of Cathar country. Built on the site of the former barbican of the medieval City and at the very foot of the ramparts, both the City and the Bastide Saint Louis are easily accessible on foot. At the Posada del Castillo B&B , we are in a classified historical monuments' area so, although we do not have a swimming pool, we do have Carcassonne's Lake Cavayere 5 minutes away as well as the Mediterranean, mountain lakes, rivers and streams in close proximity. Although, being in a town and next to the Chapel of Saint Gimer, we do not have large grounds or parklands, we do have a cosy terrace and a private garden which offer our guests a truly unique view of the Cite. Indeed, the medieval walls, the Porte d'Aude and the Chateau Comtal are less than 100m away. It is the Porte d'Aude which evokes Carcassone world wide and it is this gate which is featured on all of the postcards and used as a backdrop in films and historical productions. ... more   less
