“Carcassonne, a town of charming people, rich history, and a soul... a soul that will haunt one forever...”
Reviewed May 14, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Allow me to paint the scene... you finally arrive, haggard from your flight to the peaceful sounds of the river Oude directly across from your home, Richard and the lovely Doha greet you upon your arrival. We were invited as family, not only from Richard but soon we found quick kinship with the people of Carcassone, from the baker, butcher, cheese maker, chocolatiers, hatters, waitresses and waiters. You will know them as friends and people, you will understand the soul of carcassone. Outside the grounds you will find caves of ancient man, castles and churches of haunting history, but most of all beauty and the company of excellent people... Be it local dark red tomatoes and delicious cheeses, fresh oysters or rich duck from the farmer’s market or the outstanding restaurants Richard will show you, one cannot help but be warmed and satiated by the cuisine. Expect to come back changed, changed for the better. I do believe I forgot you have a park then a castle, just beyond your bridge... Oh yes, the house was spacious and comfortable, leaving us needing for nothing. Ooh La la! -Bonnie and Matthew Afonin

Matthew and Bonnie came to our little paradise with their friends, as a family, all looking for culture and moments of sharing ... we had great pleasure to welcome them to offer them the best of our work. We hope to welcome them again, in the heart of the district of Paichérou, in the Sweetness, Calm and Light of the banks of the river Aude. See you soon in our delicious house ... and WELCOME

“fabulous accommodation”
Reviewed June 28, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The location was very good, looking on to the river with views of the castle. Great for a 10 mins walk either way to the cite or town. The accommodation was very good, well equipped and clean. We particularly enjoyed the spacious open plan living/kitchen area. Richard was very friendly and helpful and immediately delivered sun loungers for us to relax in the garden. This was our second visit to Carcassonne and we stayed for 7 days. I would certainly recommend this house.

“OLD WORLD CHARM”
Reviewed March 28, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Once we had completed our booking Richard sent a Welcoming email. He was very quick to answer any queries or questions.

The house is set in a terrace of houses which is located in an excellent position within very easy reach of le bastide - which is the main town area and le cite which is the medieval castle area.

On arrival the house was delightfully warm and the bedrooms were as described with nice clean bedlinen. The upstairs bathroom is straight out of the 70's but this all adds to the charm.

Likewise, the kitchen is a step back in time. We did mention to Richard that perhaps he might invest in 8 good mugs for tea/coffee rather than the French mini tasse. As we Irish do like our Cuppa!

Richard gave us an excellent suggestion for dinner the first night and also for a visit to a nearby chateau.

We were a party of 8 adults and the house was perfectly able to cater for us all.

Go and enjoy

“confort and nature”

Carcassonne is such a fantastic destination. We came back for the second time to appreciate the local Gastronomy and to visit more of the local Heritage . We finely decided to return to the Païcherou , so quiet and peaceful area.
The city center and the old Cité are 5 minutes walking.
The house is so charming, full of light, clean and confortable.
We mostly appreciated the garden leading to the river .
We highly recommend this house to all families or groups of friends looking for a large place to stay in Carcassonne.
Many thanks to Richard. He's a remarkable person who advised us many good restaurants and places to visit. Great moments !
Barbara and Oliver

Hello Barbara,
so good to receive you for the second time, with all your friends.
The "Pays Cathare" is amazing, all year long, and central position of Carcassonne is perfect to discover the Castles, taste the local Gastronomy including some of the best wines of France, and breeze the local atmosphere, full of light and colors.
There is still so much to discover... we will clearly appreciate to welcome you for the third time, and it will be a shared pleasure.
Kind regards
Richard

Ola Maria,
Gracias por el placer de su presencia, y de su comentario.
De verdad, Carcasona es un destino fantástico. Vosotros han decidido de viajar para apreciar la gastronomía local y visitar más del patrimonio del sud de Francial, en nuestro barrio "El Païcherou", la zona mas tranquilo y natural de Carcassonne.
El centro de la ciudad y el viejo Ciudad son 5 minutos a pie.
La casa esta plena de luz, y confortable, perfecta para todas las familias o los grupos de amigos que buscan un gran lugar y quedarse en Carcasona.
Esperamos a recibirvos muy pronto, para nuevas experiencas.
Un gran saludo.
Richard
