This place is perfect, look no further. The gite itself is beautiful, really nicely done but keeping its original French charm. The tiered garden is perfect for lounging all day and enjoying the views of the cité.
I have never met such a hospitable owner, she organized our babysitter and introduced us with a box of toys in arm as well, left copious amounts of food ready for us, and even offered to call a cab for me!
The two rooms were turned into doubles and a child bed put in our room, easily fitting five and the garden is plenty big enough for friends to one around. It's a short walk up the path to the citedal or over the bridge to the town centre. Parking whilst on the road is opposite or at most around the corner.
I would urge you all to book here if you're looking to go to carcassonne.
