“Fantastic”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

We stayed here for a long weekend break and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Carol was more than welcoming into her home and the room was lovely, very spacious and spotless. The bathroom was also gorgeous. The B&B is ideally located just a short walk from both the city and and the castle. Carol recommended some lovely restaurants and gave lots of useful information to get us through the trip, including the occasional french lesson. Breakfast was lovely, very traditional consisting of cereal yoghurts, baguette and croissants. Also the most delicious hot chocolate Ive ever had. Would recommend this place and will definitely return for a second visit!

We stayed here in August 2012 and it was fabulous. A really welcoming couple run the place - Carole and Jose. They couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. Lovely room , fine for a family of four for couple of nights. Really nice pool and shaded parking area for your rental car. Walking distance to the medieval city of Carcassonne. With two out of the four of us having broken feet ( Im not joking...) Carole INSISTED on driving us to our restaurant each night so I could enjoy a drink and leave the rental car!!! And the restaurants she suggested ( Le Jardin d'ete & L'ecurie) were both fantastic, great food and great athmosphere and reasonably priced for what they were. We brought along our kids favourite cereal and Carole served that up to them daily and fresh local yogurts and honey and coffee and croissants...what more do you want??
Jose can arrange a cold beer from the fridge on your return from Carcassonne and all the walking round cobblestone streets for you to lol about by the pool. You can relax and hear the trumpets and cheers as they recreate the Jousting competitions of centuries past each afternoon . Fabulous B&B on the doorstep of Carcassonne. You won't be disappointed. Peter & family from Dublin Ireland.

Room Tip: Ask to see the upstairs rooms, they may suit some. Ask for Air conditioner/ fan in height of summer...

Carol and Jose have this lovely Chambre d hotes which is situated in the perfect place for a visit to the Carcasson Medieval Cite. We stayed two nights and would have liked to have stayed longer. We were warmly welcomed and Carol offered many recommendations about the Cite and where to eat etc.The restaurant recommendation was superb! Les Palmiers is in a very quiet and peaceful location with a beautiful view of the castle and lovely walks all around. The walks can also take you into the old but younger town of Carcassone. Just a short 15 minutes stroll along the river takes you towards the Medieval Cite but be aware that the last part is uphill. There are car parks at the top so if you prefer you can take the car. Inside the walls it is very busy and we appreciated the fact that we would be going back to a much quiter location at the end of the evening, Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean with nice traditional decor and a lovely modern bathroom. We enjoyed it very much during our stay. We had a nice breakfast on the terrace just outside our room which included local fresh produce. Unfortunately, We were not in the area long enough and would like to return. We highly recommend Carol and Jose's home and their great hospitality and would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for 3 nights in this lovely B an B , excellently located for both the mediaeval city and the "not so old" town. The room and its facilities are modern and tasteful ; the breakfast was like "being family". We werent feeling great and the wether was not what we hoped for , but Carol administered to our every need - in particular warmer clothing and a brolly !!! Thankfully most people will undoubtedly be luckier with weather, but they won't improve on Carole and
Jose as hosts .

We stayed here for a magical night as part of our honeymoon. Not only was the B&B perfectly located, a beautiful 5 minute stroll to the Castle gates, but the room was stunning! The bathroom was very large and stylishly decorated. The Cathar room in which we stayed blended modern comforts with stylish medieval details. The hosts could not have been more friendly and helpful, making us feel right at home from the outset. They booked a table for us at a fabulous local restaurant and provided lots of travelling tips for the area. The breakfast was delicious, beautiful fresh French produce, served on stunning handmade crockery. We would advise people to stay in this fabulous place as it has everything you would require!

My husband and I think this bed and breakfast is one of the best places we have ever stayed. The owners Carole and Jose are lovely and do everything possible to make your stay perfect. They know the area very well and can give you the greatest advice on what to see, do, where to eat etc. The rooms are newly refurbished, modern, beautifully designed and very clean. We had a little terrace off our room that was lovely for breakfast and an afternoon drink. It is in walking distance of the old city with a beautiful view of the castle and yet very quiet. I can't say enough good things about this establishment and it's owners. We can highly recommend Les Palmiers De La Cite to anyone.

We have just returned from Carcassonne having just spent 6 days at Les Palmiers De La Cite, with very friendly and accommodating hosts - Carole and Jose - who made us feel very welcome. The location of the property is brilliant, just a 10-15 minute stroll to the Castle and similar to the 'new town' where there is a market held 3 times a week. Several restaurants within a 5 minute walk - a perfect location.
Carole and Jose were very informative about places to visit and extremely helpful with any requests. The pool is lovely and very welcome after a few hours of exploring Carcassonne.
Carole very kindly picked us up and returned us to the airport. If we return to Carcassonne we will hope to stay at Les Palmiers De La Cite again.
