“Great value”
Reviewed September 3, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Booked this as a last minute option, was a bit nervous as we approached the entrance which is very grubby, but the apartment itself was lovely and exceeded our expectations. The apartment is ideally situated half way between the Cite and Bastide St Louis. The apartment itself was very clean. The kitchen was adequately fitted out with fridge, cooker etc and plenty of dishes and utensils. The bedroom was very spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable with an ensuite toilet and shower. Wouldn't suit anyone who wouldn't be able to negotiate the very tight spiral staircase to the bedroom.
One thing we noticed when we arrived was a slight smell in the kitchen. We discovered after that it seemed to be coming from the sink and we resolved the issue by leaving the plunger in the sink - dodgy waste water systems in Carcassone!!
We would have no hesitation recommending this apartment.

Management Response
Sep 5, 2015
A good review from these guests but we feel we should clarify a few points:

The entrance to the apartment itself is certainly not grubby, the facade has been completely renovated in accordace with "Batiments de France" regulations. The apartment is set away from the street which means it is very quiet but to access the apartment there is an original shop facade and entrance door on the street which requires some renovation. However, most guests find this part of the charm and not unusual in Historic cities in France.

We have always been complemented on how well equipped our kitchens are, we do also cater for long term rentals. We know many gites in France only have adequate kitchens but this apartment has a fan oven, ceramic hob, extractor, dishwasher, kettle, toaster, coffee machine, microwave, washing machine, tumble dryer, large fridge with freezer compartment and plenty of utensils.

The spiral staircase to the bedroom is 1.2 metres diameter and certainly wouldn't be very tight for most people. We do say on our advert it might not be suitable for people with mobility problems.

When the apartment was renovated all of the electrics, plumbing and waste water systems were replaced with new and fully comply with all current norms. These guests mention a slight smell from the kitchen sink, we can only think this could be as a result of the hot weather and the apartment being empty for a few days before these guests arrived.

“So close to all amenties”
Reviewed August 15, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This apartment is so spacious so you don't get in the way of each other. The bed is massive & very comfortable. When you come out of the front door turn left and within 5 minutes you are in the old cite, turn right and you'll soon be in the bastide with a nice square on the way.

“Fabulous Stay!”

Great accommodation - very clean, secure, convenient and perfect location fror the Cite. We stayed for a full week, and never got bored. It was very hot and humid some days whilst we were there, but the apartment mostly felt a comfortable retreat. The addition of a washing machine was great, and we used it twice. We mostly ate out, though we made breakfast every day and a couple fof lunches also. The free parking was as easy as Jason had mentioned. A well equipped accommodation, and we will certainly be recommending it to our friends and family. We would like to return in spring ror autumn to experience different times of year. Great!

“Beautiful Carcassonne, beauty of an apartment!”
Reviewed May 19, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The description on the website was accurate. It is thoughtfully set up. Our host Jason, kindly collected us from the station, even waited around as we were on a later train.
He showed us all amenities and made us feel very welcome. After a chat about activities, he kindly called a restaurant and booked for us on our first evening.
It was an excellent recommendation, one of the best on our trip.
Jason also let us use his bikes which we rode along the famously picturesque Canal du Midi. We thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful getaway to rural France, complete with the breathtaking walled cite actually up the street. Fantastic location!

“Wonderful apartment and perfect location”
Reviewed May 15, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Myself and my partner had a wonderful stay in Carcassonne as the apartment was centrally located between the old and new town.

The apartment was fully equipped with everything that we needed, we couldn't have asked for anything more.

The owner Jason couldn't have been more helpful and the collection and drop off at the airport was an added bonus.

There is a lot to see in Carcassonne and I would recommend a cruise on the Canal du Midi and a visit to the Lac de la Cavayere which is only 20 minutes away by bus which was only one euro.

“Great location, clean with everything you need!”
Reviewed April 22, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a short stay in Carcassonne and found the apartment central to both old and new towns, in easy walking distance. The apartment was clean and the owners very helpful and even picked us up at the airport.

Thanks again!

The apartment is lovely and has been carefully designed and finished to a really good standard. It is very central to both the old and new towns and is in its own secluded area behind the street front.
