“Charming,extremely comfortable apartment in a great location”
Reviewed October 15, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed in this apartment in early October. It overlooks Place Carnot which is a lovely square in the heart of Carcassonne with nice restaurants, cafés and little local shops to get fresh bread and everything else you might want. There is a lively Saturday food market in the square and on the Sunday that we stayed we woke to a pétanque tournament with an accordion player, such a great atmosphere.

We flew to Carcassonne airport and Steve picked us and drove us to the apartment which was about 10 mins away so very convenient. As we didn't need to hire a car we took advantage of the trains and buses which were very cheap. The old medieval Cite is a short walk and the canal has boat rides and cycle hire.

This is definitely a place to come back to in the future.

“Fantastic apartment!!!!”
Reviewed October 14, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

What a beautiful apartment in just about the perfect place to enjoy Carcassonne. The added bonus was the roof terrace and the patisserie just around the corner. Fresh croissant for breakfast with a great view of the old city! Sharon and Steve gave us a great welcome and we enjoyed the cake on arrival! We had a great few days roaming around the old city and the surrounding area. Would recommend to anyone and would certainly stay again.

We were so pleased that you made use of the patisserie for morning croissants. We are very lucky to have such a great bakers seconds away from the apartment. Our favorites are the fig bread and the almond tarts. The roof terrace is also a real privilege to have in a city, especially one with such amazing views. We hope to see you again!

We were made welcome even before arrival through email correspondents and exchange of information. We were collected by Steve at the airport and on arrival to the apartment we were greeted by Sharon who had made us homemade cake, presented us with a bottle of wine and milk for hot drinks which was a lovely touch. The apartment is quirky, bright, classy and should be a 5 star rating. The location is excellent for people watching across the square and the views from the roof terrace is amazing. We enjoyed everything about the accommodation and the location. This was our second visit to this beautiful medieval town and we will be returning.

“Carcassonne”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

An amazing apartment located on the Place Carnot. All mod cons with everything you could possibly need. Location wise just a stones throw away from cafés, bars, restaurants, the best bakery in town and of course the medieval walled town. A fantastic short break in a lovely region of France, great place to explore the area with good transport links. Sharon and Steve have created a superb apartment in a charming old building, a beautiful home made cake and bottle of wine awaited our arrival in the apartment, not to mention the extremely warm welcome and much appreciate pick up from the airport. We had a fantastic and memorable bank holiday weekend here, would definitely recommend it.

“Absolutely faultless from start to finish!”

We were really excited to stay here after staying in Sharon and Steve's other apartment 'Mistral' last year, and we weren't disappointed.

This apartment is just beautiful - super modern yet full of old features. Our stay was truly a home-from-home experience and Sharon and Steve were fantastic hosts. They are both extremely friendly and welcoming, and Sharon even baked us a home-made Victoria sponge! There was a complimentary bottle of Rosé in the fridge, as well as milk, biscuits, coffee, sugar and (English!) tea.

They really thought of everything to make us comfortable, and went well above the usual 'service' by picking us up from the airport (which is around ten minutes from the apartment).

The apartment itself is everything described; slap bang in the middle of Place Carnot, clean, modern and equipped with all the essentials. There is a 'Tesco-Extra' type shop right below the apartment, which was very convenient.

We didn't want to hire a car and we really didn't need to. We loved strolling down to the fresh produce market (which sells fresh bread, eggs, cheese and veg) and then having a bite to eat in the lovely square. There are lots of little bistros and restaurants to choose from, and a super Tapas bar right around the corner. The Canal Du Midi is a ten minute walk from the apartment which was also lovely.

Overall we had a fantastic time and would love to come again.

The title of my review says a lot, but this apartment is much, much more. If you had a personal wish list for what you look for in a rental apartment;the owners, Sharon and Steve make sure all the boxes are ticked!!

From the ease of booking and prompt communication to the welcoming home-made cake, that would make Mary Berry envious; everything is perfect.

We couldn't have been more delighted with Apartment Carnot - it is beautifully presented and furnished, spacious and in the ideal location for exploring Carcassone.
Sharon and Steve are so helpful and their attention to detail is fantastic, making it a 5 Star experience for anyone wanting a comfortable getaway in a beautiful and fascinating city.
We are really looking forward to coming back to Apartment Carnot and exploring more of the surrounding area.
