“Ideal”
Reviewed May 23, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed at 20 rue longue for a short break en route to the grau du roi and Nimes. The rental was ideal for a family of 5 adults. The property is spacious, clean, well maintained and has an individual style with oak beams and feature well, TV/DVD and good wifi.
There are 3 double en-suite bedrooms and opportunities to cook and eat in or outside in a secluded courtyard with views of the city walls. There are restaurants and small shops within 5 to 10 minutes walk and the property is within 20 to 30 minutes walk of the new town, Canal du Midi bike hire and boat trips and the fascinating old City, shops and restaurants. We had thought it would be difficult to find free on road car parking but it wasn't, the airport is only 20 mins by Agglo bus and the railway station is a 25 min walk.
We found this an ideal spot to relax, recharge and enjoy the town. It might be difficult if you have mobility issues. There is a ground floor bedroom, but the ground floor is split level. The old city is a steep uphill walk.

“Perfect place to stay in Carcassonne”
Reviewed May 19, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I don't often feel compelled to write reviews, but this place was so fantastic I would absolutely recommend it!

I stayed here with my mum and sister and we were all blown away by how beautiful the property is, and despite it's great age, how convenient, spacious and comfortable it is.

The location is wonderful and the views are spectacular. Despite being so close to the Cite, it was incredibly peaceful. The owner was incredibly helpful and the apartment has loads of really useful information for visitors to the area.

Would recommend to anyone planning a trip to Carcassonne!

“Terrific Location, Great House”
Reviewed May 17, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This house has the most amazing location, a very short walk to the stair to the ramparts at Carcassonne. The house is lovely, with modern kitchen & good bathrooms. The garden catches the afternoon sun and has great vies of the ramparts.

“Outstanding property”
Reviewed May 6, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Just returned from wonderful relaxing break in carcassone, and the property was absolutely perfect. Right next to the medieval city, but still peaceful and secluded, was a perfect base for the two couples and provided a high standard of equipment and everything you could need. The owner was so accommodating in allowing us to stay on while waiting on an evening flight. Will miss the tranquility of sitting at the top of the garden, chilling with a bottle of the local vin rouge.

“Great location,”
Reviewed April 20, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Great location very close to the old city and a short (5min) walk from the airport bus stop.
Property is in a very quiet & peaceful street. Unassuming front door opens up into a very well equipped, warm and spacious house over three levels. We (two couples) found ample space to sleep / eat / relax - the patio / garden with furniture / cushions etc was a welcome bonus. Small local shop just a few minutes away for rolls & juice etc. UK based owner very approachable and responsive. Recommended by friends to us - and we would highly recommend it to others.

“Beautiful, cozy house in a magnificent location”
Reviewed January 2, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Our family of four had a wonderful time staying in this very comfortable house in Carcassone. The views from the windows looking toward the Carcassone Cité walls are spectacular! The house itself is spacious and includes everything one needs. Recently renovated, tastefully decorated, clean, and with lots of great information about things to do in the region. I'd recommend this house to anyone without mobility restrictions. Thank you, Gail, for a wonderful stay!

“Absolutely Fabulous!!”
Reviewed October 19, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We had been enthusiastically recommended this property by a friend who had stayed there last year and were not disappointed at all. It was exceptionally clean and
regardless of the fact that it is about 300 years old (older than some countries amazingly) and undoubtedly had it's quirks, the owner had thoughtfully provided all 'mod cons' whilst also retaining the absolute and simple charm of the property that only comes with age.
We stayed here for a week with friends from Australia (there were 2 couples) and really enjoyed candlelit evenings in the garden with the illuminated cite as a most magnificent backdrop.
We were fortunate to have the same view from our bedroom on the first floor which had a queen (or large double) bed and wet room style ensuite.
Nothing was too much trouble for the owner. From original booking to changing dates at very short notice she was flexible and gracious.
Our only issue was that we wished in hindsight that rather than taking a week to travel home that we had stayed on at this lovely property. Thank you for sharing it Gail.
