Reviewed August 27, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Really enjoyed staying at this appartment. The furniture & fittings could do with an upgrade. Otherwise it was spacious and welcoming.

“Great family apartment in centre of town”
Reviewed June 8, 2016 for a stay in September 2015

Our family with two young children had a lovely 9 month stay in this spacious and well-located apartment in the centre of the Bastide, close to everything you could possibly need to get by on a day-to-day basis. Sophie was very welcoming and always just a phone call away. Everyone had their own bedroom and the kids shared their own full bathroom, which was a definite plus. The upstairs kitchen was well stocked and we always felt at home. Definitely a great place to stay to explore the beautiful Aude region for both long and short stays.

“We loved Carcassonne”
Reviewed December 14, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed in the Carcassonne Penthouse with our six children (ages 10-20) during a road trip from our base house in Mialet. The stay was wrapped by a day and a half with James McDonald touring Carcassonne and Cathar Country. Both James and Sophie were awesome before, during and after our stay. The Penthouse was well-situated in Carcassonne and comfortably accommodated our party of eight. We would definitely stay again when visiting Carcassonne.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed May 25, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

You'd never guess it from the outside...an ordinary side street in the heart of the old Bastide area of Carcassonne....containing a truly delightful, spacious, well planned and well equipped penthouse apartment with secluded rear sun balcony. Twenty minutes walk from the hillside castle, definitely one of the most impressive ever built. Weather in May can be unpredictable, but in the penthouse, you're definitely in the right place, rain or shine. Bright and spacious, comfortable, and centrally situated. Top marks !!

“Beautiful location, spacious and well-equipped apartment.”

We wanted something in the heart of Carcassonne where we could go and get a baguette each morning from the local boulangerie and we were not disappointed. Carcassonne and the surrounding area is a lovely place to explore. However, we found the August heat oppressive at times and the flat could have done with better air conditioning when visiting at the height of summer. The smaller bedroom, the window of which opens onto the stairwell, was particularly stifling at night. That said, it was a comfortable and thoughtfully equipped apartment, the shower was fantastic and the living room opens out to a lovely area with a barbecue - perfect for those warm evenings!

Thank you.

We are addressing the improvements to the air conditioning. Thank you for the feedback. Vis a vis the fresh food shopping there is not only the market in Place Carnot on Saturday and Thursday, but also les Halles just up the street every week day except Monday.

Yes there are two flights of steps (broad and shallow) to the penthouse and then another staircase from entry level to the apartment. One client did actually tell me that the week worked wonders on her knee! but not suitable for everybody.

Hm bot sure that is true about the restaurants. There are many good ones in the Bastide and at Cavanac and Domaine d'Auriac and other places just out of town other real gems.
