We stayed at La Posada del Castillo at the tail end of our honeymoon. Upon arrival we were welcomed by Enrique who helped us with our luggage. His high level of service never dropped and he was always available to discuss local sightseeing and recommend good restaurants. He had lots of good ideas for excursions and had we stayed longer I am sure we would have explored further.
Our room was simple but stylish with an excellent.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with being serenaded by Mark Knopfler while chatting to Enrique in the B&B courtyard being the highlight.
- 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
