Our recent two night stay at La Posada could not have been better!
Enrique and Lola are the perfect hosts. They enjoy traveling themselves and provide the accommodations to their guests that they want when they travel. The breakfasts are wonderful and Enrique makes sure you get all you want.
Their patio provides a quiet hideaway with a beautiful view of Le Cite. The view at night is made for a postcard!
The location is perfect as La Posada sits just below the back entrance to Le Cite and is an easy walk up a short incline without steps.
La Posada is very quiet, peaceful and secure.
Parking is free in the square just in front of the church that sits below Le Cite and about 30 yards from La Posada.
If you want to know anything about the area, e.g. restaurant recommendations, history or engaging stories, Enrique is your answer.
We would stay here again if in the area and if they are full I would change my dates to make sure we stayed at La Posada.
You will not be disappointed!
- 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
