The day before we were due to arrive at Le 45, I received a charming email from Nicolas (the host) making sure I had directions and asking me for an eta. I knew then, that it was going to be lovely stay with him and his lovely wife Isabelle. (the cook).
Le 45 is situated on a busy street just outside the Bastide a 10 minute stroll to the Canal du Midi, and less than 10 minutes by car up to the car parks for the medieval part of the city.
Both the guest bedrooms are on the first floor facing the street, but due to the double windows you do not hear any traffic noise. The rooms are a good size prettily decorated with good linens and modern en suite shower rooms.
Breakfast (at your chosen time, 9.30 for us) was a delightful repast. Fresh baguette and croissants from a nearby bakery and delicious homemade treats made by Isabelle, including yogurt, freshly squeezed orange juice, individual apple tarts, madelines, fruit puddings and fruit salads and wonderful homemade jams. A wide selection of teas and Nespresso coffees - heaven.
There is a beautiful oasis behind the house and you are welcome to use the small swimming pool, sun loungers and deck chairs if the weather permits.
Nicholas is a wonderful host and has a wide selection of leaflets and guide books in many languages for you to borrow. There is so much to see and do in Carcassonne, we are already planning a return trip with daughter and granddaughter for next year and we definitely stay at Le 45 again,wouldn't even consider anywhere else.
