This stylish, first-floor apartment is situated in the heart of the Bastide, only minutes from Place Carnot. It takes its name from nearby St. Vincent church whose Sunday morning bells can be heard from the apartment. If you're feeling energetic you can climb the magnificent bell tower for wonderful views of the city and surrounding countryside. The apartment is within minutes walk of a variety of restaurants, bars and cafes as well as local supermarkets and shops and of course the wonderful outdoor market in Place Carnot.

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...More

About the neighborhood
Carcassonne is dominated by the World Heritage site of La Cite. Situated on a mound overlooking the river and best approached via the picturesque Pont Vieux it is an obvious attraction for visitors. Within the walls the narrow medieval streets are mostly vehicle free and very popular with tourists moving from one photo opportunity to another. You can visit the Chateau Comtal and Basilique St. Nazaire(made famous by Kate Mosse in her novel 'Labyrinth'. The bars, restaurants, shops and artisan workshops are well worth a visit too. Descending from the walled city through the Aude gate, the full power of medieval fortifications as imagined by Viollet-Le-Duc can be experienced. The path from the gate leads to the church of St Gimer which is a rare example of Viollet-Le-Duc's original architectural work. Cross the pedestrian bridge back to the Bastide and see what most tourists do not always experience. This medieval 'New Town' laid out in a strict grid pattern holds a wonderful range of historical, architectural and cultural treasures. On the edges of the Bastide one of the massive bastions has been surmounted by a 'calvary'. The story of the passion is marked out in tableaux of life sized iron and terracotta figures. Within the Bastide are restraunts and bars, shops and both an indoor and open-air market. The quality and range of produce is a sight worth getting up early for. During the summer when the Carcassonne festival is in full swing Place Carnot and Place Andre Chenier are used as venues for free concerts hosting performances from international stars. The world-famous Bastille Day firework display in the Cite attracts many visitors to view the stunning spectacle. During the Christmas period Place Carnot becomes a public ice-rink and is also used for performances by local groups. The Xmas market in Place Gambetta and wonderful illuminations throughout the town make it an ideal location for a pre-Xmas break. The museum de Beaux Arts houses an eclectic permanent exhibition and also hosts regularly changing exhibitions by recent and modern artists. Close by on Rue Verdun is the Maison de Memoire, the home of Joe Bousquet who, when he became bed-ridden, hosted visits from world famous artists and politicians. Now his house is open to the public with frequently changing exhibitions of diverse contemporary art. Finally within the bastide is the church of St Vincent with a beautiful organ used for frequent recitals. The tower provides superb views of La Cite and the surrounding countryside for those willing to make the climb. On Sunday mornings the peel of 54 bells runs for about 45 minutes through a range of tunes. With the bus, rail station and the canal dock an easy 5-minute walk from the apartment access to transport links beyond the city are easy and can provide superb day-trips into the historic area beyond. In summer there are many boat trips available on the Canal and bikes can be hired for cycling along the towpath. Whether you are seeking an active, outdoor- based holiday, a relaxing, indulgent break or a lively fun-filled time with great entertainment Carcassonne and its surrounding area is the perfect choice.
How to get there
Ryanair operates year round flights to Carcassonne from Stansted, Liverpool and Dublin and summer only flights from Bournemouth, East Midlands, Glasgow (Prestwick) and Cork. Easyjet fly to Toulouse from Bristol and Gatwick. There is a direct train line from the centre of Toulouse to Carcassonne. If you are considering car hire, flights to Beziers or Perpignan are a possibility. For those wishing to drive from the UK the journey from Calais to Carcassonne takes approximately 9-10 hours using the toll roads (not including stops) but is a pleasant drive spread over 2 days with an overnight stop in one of the many interesting areas you will pass through en route. If you arrive by air there is a convenient shuttle bus to and from the railway station (a 5 minute walk from the apartment) or you can take a taxi for the short ride into town.
