“Fantastic location, fantastic apartment, feantastic overall experience .”
Reviewed July 20, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

From my first contact with Anne the holiday was great. Anne's generosity of spirit and understanding was second to none. We had been gifted my sisters retirement holiday following her husbands surgery that meant he couldn't fly. Anne made smooth the changes to the original arrangements for the holiday making me and my husband feel welcomed even though it was very short notice. The apartment was in an ideal location within the Bastide. It was only a short walk to the Midi canal for boat rides, walks and spending time watching life go by. In the opposite direction but equally close was the road the the river Aude and up to the Cite Medieval. So close we could go several times during our stay to soak up the atmosphere and history. Also, The apartment had many practical and leisure resources to make our stay comfortable, relaxing in a bright, clean and spacious apartment in the old town.

Previous visitors comments and experiences aided our settling into a fabulously interstesting vacation. Also Lucie was there on hand to meet us, and I felt, was available to us at any time during our stay. Carcassonne has much history and present day activities to enjoy not least the food, cafes, live entertainments and warmth of people.

I envy the apartments next and future occupants and wish them the joy we had.
Thanks

“Smart apartment in a great location”
Reviewed June 11, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Anne was very quick to answer all of my messages, meaning that finding the apartment and meeting the housekeeper was very easy. The apartment is in a great location, everything was within easy walking distance. It was very clean and comfortable, with lots of resources provided to help us make the most of the town.

“Lovely spacious apartment in a great location”
Reviewed April 16, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The apartment is in a great location, only a few minutes walk from the train station and very close to the main square. It was well equipped with everything you could need, although it should be noted that there is no wi-fi and the TV had only one channel. There was a well stocked book shelf and several games. The house keeper Lucie was there to welcome us when we arrived and to answer our questions.

There are 2 supermarkets within a few minutes walk and a very nice Creperie a few doors down along Rue de la Republique, on the opposite side.

The medieval town is about 25 minutes walk away and is well worth a visit.

This apartment is in a fantastic location for exploring Carcassonne. The apartment was clean and comfortable with everything required for a self catering holiday.
The Citadel is a pleasant 20 minute walk away and the best photo opportunity is from the Pont Neuf rather than the older pedestrian bridge.
We went in January and the apartment was very cold. It heated up after 24 hours with the heating on, so would suggest asking for heating to be turned on earlier. It has tiled floors which must be nice and cool in the summer but I recommend slippers if going in the winter.
One final thing to consider if going in January. There is hardly anything open on the Sunday except the Irish bar nearby. Ensure you have food in for cooking.
The airport bus (5 euros) drops you off 5 minutes from the apartment.
Going out of season was good as you avoid the really large crowds at the Citadel that occur during the summer months.
Overall, it's a wonderful place to visit and this apartment is in an ideal location to do so.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed October 27, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Having read previous reviews I was a bit disappointed by the condition of the apartment, Plus points - close to all amenities, comfy bed and sofa, nice shower. Minus points - the finishing was poor (grouting etc), kitchen worktop did not fit the base unit, loose tap in kitchen and bathroom (I fixed the bathroom one which was very loose), 3 missing lightbulbs and one broken, no lights on the stairwell during our entire stay (had to use torches even during the day), a tooth mug in the bathroom that looked as though it had never been cleaned. Carcassonne itself was delightful. Going again next year but not to this apartment.

“Location, location, location!”
Reviewed October 1, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We had a great week in this lovely apartment. The location cannot be beaten, in the heart of the Bastide a stone's throw from Place Carnot's bars, restaurants and shops with everything you need close at hand. We had a car and parked in the free parking zone recommended by Anne and had no problems at all, only 5 minutes' walk, the railway station is a similar distance.

We were met on arrival by Lucie and found the apartment to be spotlessly clean, well appointed and comfortable with everything necessary. the bed was extremely comfortable!

The booking arrangements were very straightforward and Anne responded very promptly to our queries. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
