Located on the island between the Aude river and Canal du midi this place is perfectly located for both the old and new cities of Carcassonne. You feel like you can almost reach out and touch the old city walls from your window yet its a 15 minute pleasant stroll into the modern city centre through beautiful parks along the... More

We stayed at this BB for 2 nights. Carole was a great hostess, helping with planning our trips around the area. With our limited French,Carole willingness to help with bookings at restaurants was invaluable, even making phone calls to make reservations for us. The room was spotless and very comfortable, with air conditioning. The pool was a treat, the weather... More

We stayed at Les Palmiers De La Cite for three nights in June 2014. We booked the Cathar Suite because it had French doors on to the garden and its own little patio. The bed was very comfortable and the room and en suite very clean and comfortable. Carole is so friendly and helpful and I found that the stay... More

We stayed at Les Palmiers for a week in June 2014. The accommodation and the the way we were looked after by the owner Carole were second to none. Our room and bathroom were spotless, food was very good and nothing was too much trouble for Carole. She gave us lots of advice on where to visit and special places... More

We stayed at Les Palmiers for two nights at the beginning of June. We were made very welcome by Carole, our hostess. Carole speaks excellent English and gave us a map of Carcassonne on which she highlighted restaurants and places of interest. This bed and breakfast is in a beautiful and quiet position and is lovely, very modern with en... More

Les Palmiers lies in an oasis of green fields between the old city and the new town both of which are a 10 minute walk away. We shared a triple room between myself and two sisters. The bedroom and shower room were both modern and newly decorated with a lovely view over the fields. We had the swimming pool and... More

Once found, the peacefullness and care shown to the traveler by Carole is extroidinary and far beyond any other place we stayed on our two week trip thruout southern France. Great sized room for two with about a 10 minute walk uphill to the old castle. Spectacular view of the castle from the front porch where I enjoyed a glass... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of September. Like others said, it is a bit hard to find, but no more than lots of places in Southern French villages. Having GPS helps to get around. The room was nice. Good size, clean, extras like a desk and free wifi. Breakfast was typical French breakfast with lots of... More

Stayed here for 3 nights during an exploration of southern France. It is a property with large grounds, and our room at least, was pleasant and spacious, with a large bathroom. Carole, the proprietress, was most helpful coming up to the time of the stay, with lots of tips. The property itself has a pleasant swimming pool, and ample parking.... More

We spent two nights in this wonderful city. Carole has a beautiful house in a great location below the Cite and within a short walk to the shops, restaurants and bars, with a lovely pool to relax in after spending time exploring. Carole shows you on a map all the sights and gives great tips on when best to visit.... More
