Just next to La Cite (the walled city), this has very large comfortable rooms and is quite. Excellent very diverse range of breakfast items. Only problem is that owner requires a 50 euro deposit paid by bank transfer which cost us £10 to make! If she doesn't want credit cards, why demand a deposit or at least offer PayPal. despite this we would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Ask not to be of street side

I can only repeat the positives of other reviews-great position for visiting both castle and town, good large room and comfy bed, and to top it all, a wonderful home made breakfast [ I am not a foodie but this is worth a mention] The house itself is beautiful inside, very quiet and peaceful. The hosts were friendly and very understanding-we had to dash away to find an alternate flight due to the national strike day. The mediaeval town is well documented but I can recommend the newer town over the old bridge which was good for eating,drinking and shopping.

Lovely little B&B with real character in an excellent situation near the edge of the old citadel. Very clean and tidy, with a fantastic breakfast. Rooms overlooking the street a little noisy - especially if you have to leave the windows open due to the heat of Southern France so would recommend asking for a room backing onto the courtyard. Would happily recommend it.

We happened upon Maison Vieille during our road trip through the south of France. We couldn't believe our luck! The rooms are very spacious, clean and bright. For $85 Euro per night it was an absolute bargain, having paid double that to stay within the walls of the city the previous night. Our room contained a gorgeous bath and we had a fantastic view of the city wall from our bedroom.
The breakfast was superb, so much to eat and they even packed us a gorgeous lunch pack from our leftovers. Couldn't rave enough about our stay!

Hi I recently stayed at a wonderful B&B in Carcasonne, its called La Maison Vieille and is situated about a 5min walk (uphill) from the castle. Catherine the owner speaks perfect English and is very approachable, her mother Francoise prepares the breakfast and it is really nice, lots of cakes, creme brulee, rice pudding and home made jams all washed down with fresh coffee. There is a lovely sandwich shop just over the road that also sells cakes and wine, take my advice and buy most of your food from here as every restaurant we tried was pretty poor. I like to try local foods and tried a beef daube (15 euro), had to leave half of it as the meat was so fatty, most of the other eateries seem to cater for the tourist ie pizza, spag bol and steak and fries all of which were quite pricey. Do not go to the arab market as it really is full of tat, however the french market in the square is brilliant for fresh produce of all kinds. So to sum up B&B great, castle great, friendly natives great, only 10 mins from Carcasonne airport ( fly Ryanair) take a taxi its nearly as cheap as the bus and a lot quicker, give the restaurants a miss.
