My partner and I just got back after four nights at La Posada and we can't recommend it highly enough. Enrique and Laurence gave us such a warm welcome and the place is so nice. The rooms are beautiful- real attention to detail, it's clear a lot of thought went into the decor. In fact the same goes for everything there- the place is clearly a labour of love for them and I agree with many of the other reviewers that you feel like you're staying with friends- just little things like when you come back exhausted and they appear with a cold drink for you, really kind. Breakfast was lovely- very relaxed in the garden and they'll pack up anything you don't eat to take with you for the day. As you can see from the photos the location is fab- so close to everything without being within the walls which I think could feel a bit claustrophobic. Enrique and Laurence are so pleasant and always around when you need them- we got loads of tips from them of places to see and tourist traps to avoid, and they really went out of their way to make sure we got good reservations for our evening meals (and then we got star treatment at the restaurants too!) Le Jardin d'ete in particular is absolutely gorgeous. We didn't have a hire car with us and they offered us lifts to the station and airport which made life so much easier. I'm sure there are lots of nice places to stay in and around Carcassonne but I doubt there's another Enrique or Laurence in any of them! (Thank you both for making our holiday so enjoyable!)

My wife and I had the privilege of staying at Posada del Castillo for ten days in June. This B&B is superlative. The Carcassonne castle is a short walk (~10 min.) from the B&B. From the beautiful Posada patio there is a spectacular view of the Carcassonne castle. Enhanced with a glass of wine, this scene is particularly alluring at night when the castle is illuminated by floodlights. We were scheduled to stay only three nights after which we had a flight scheduled to England. However, because of an air controller strike in France, this flight was cancelled. By juggling other reservations, Enrique managed to extend our stay, which resulted in us occupying three different rooms. Each room was clean, comfortable and very well appointed. The showers are excellent. Lola’s artistic talents are evidenced by the appealing room decorations. Enrique and Lola are friendly, charming and most gracious hosts. They are always smiling and happy. At breakfast they initiate and engage in excellent conversation with guests (they speak several languages). Enrique was incredibly helpful in suggesting great places for us to visit. Fortunately, we followed his suggestions. This included a couple of outstanding restaurants. Enrique and Lola made us feel so at home that we sorely regretted leaving them at the end of our stay. After we returned home we received several nice e-mails from them, one of which included the comment that after we left their B&B seemed a bit empty without us. We are already thinking about when we can return to Posada del Castillo. The downside for us is that with stellar TripAdvisor reviews such as this we will need to book a room many months in advance! One word of advice: a GPS is highly recommended to guide you to the Posada del Castillo.

What a pleasure to read your comments about your stay at La Posada. When you return to Carcassonne we think you can easily find a job as a tour operator in the region. You too have been gracious hosts and with whom we have enjoyed sharing the "improvised" holidays. We became fans of "andalousite" and we really hope to see you again. Take care and "let's check it out !". We wish you a Great , Happy and Funny Summer ! Cheers

Enrique is so happy talking about is lovely city,which he knows a lot about, and sweet Lola always smiling,no wonder they are the number 1on trip advisor.

Our only regret is... We couldn't stay longer!
If you want the perfect location, with truly wonderful hosts, who couldn't be more helpful, also giving an outline of the local history.....then Enrique and Lola are unsurpassed.
The view from La Posada is breathtaking, especially when lit up at night.
Our room was extremely comfortable, with views of the castle.
We felt very welcomed and at home, regretfully, only for a short stay....if only we knew how good it was going to be.

Enrique and Lola are WONDERFUL hosts. I highly recommend staying here though I'm reluctant to say so as I don't want to share this secret! We arrived for a one night stay and immediately found parking on the street of the inn. Enrique greeted us with fanfare, warmth, and cheer. He is so delightful. he got us settled in our wonderful room and booked dinner for us so I could get my cassoulet (see review for Adelaide restaurant). He directed us up and into La Cite so we knew where we were going. He was very accommodating in the morning when we wanted to leave our bags at the inn while we finished our short tour of the city. Breakfast consisted of a little meat and cheese, lots of pastries & bread, and Lola's OUTSTANDING pear & choclate conserve. Enrique ate breakfast with us (a delight) and packed up the left over breads for us to enjoy on our journey onward. He also gave us two bottles of water! The room was very comfortable- white hotel bedding, plenty of closet space if you're staying a few days, and a clean bathroom with organic cotton towels. The shower is a tight squeeze, so be warned if you're a tall or wide person. The terrace outside is gorgeous, too, for early morning or later afternoon reading and relaxation. Enrique mentioned that he leads regional winery tours and tastings, so we want to return to join him on one of those. Enrique is originally from Spain and speaks Spanish, French, and English fluently. Lola is a former French teacher and also speaks good English. They live together on the property. We can't wait to go back and visit them!!
