This XIX century house is located on a very-sought after boulevard of the town, in a very peaceful neighbourhood.

This harmonious atmosphere is highlighted by ancient posters and splendid carpets. The small TV room and the kitchen open onto a charming inner courtyard where you will enjoy the private pool. On the 3rd floor, terrace with panoramic view on the town and laundry room. On the 2nd floor, the 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 separate WCs.

Would not hesitate returning

  • 4 out of 5
Our booking was handled efficiently but from the photographs in the advertisement we were concerned that this house might be too elegant for our holiday home. On arrival we discovered it had a very lived-in look. The advertised description and photographs properly reflect the property with period furniture (well used) mixed with modern.
We were warmly welcomed by the owner who spent a lot of time explaining the operation of the various appliances in the small but well-equipped kitchen. A welcome package of food and basket of fruit were generously provided. Throughout our stay, the owner was very attentive and responsive without being obtrusive.
The master bedroom - at the front of the house, overlooking the boulevard is spacious but very noisy when windows are open (there is no air-conditioning in this room). The shower and wash basin en-suite to this room are very small with insufficient shelving. The bedroom at the rear, overlooking the garden is comfortable and very quiet. This room is fitted with air-conditioning.
Both toilets are very small and could be a challenge for larger persons.
The house is ideally located in the centre of town, with covered parking on site – a valuable feature, especially on market days. The garden is lush and is set nicely around the pool with ample top-quality furniture and umbrellas – truly peaceful.
We were very comfortable and enjoyed our stay. We would not hesitate returning if we visited Carcassonne again.

great location charming house

  • 4 out of 5
The home was very comfortable for 5 adults. The owner was a delight. He had the refrigerator stocked with local wines and essentials on our arrival. The house is very well equipped, has a dishwaher, laundry facilities and good WIFI. The pool and back yard are lovely. Rooms are very large. Two bedrooms have a regular north american double bed and the third has 2 very comfortable single beds. The house is 15 minutes from the walled city and very close to local bakeries, restaurants and markets. The indoor garage makes it easy to have a car. Lots of stairs. Overall, a great location and wonderful holiday.

We loved this elegant but homely house

  • 4 out of 5
We very much enjoyed our stay here, particularly the outside areas by the pool and the roof terrace. Bertrand and Anne were very welcoming, and on hand if needed. A lot of thought has gone into the detail -the house is elegant, but also homely. It is within walking distance of many restaurants, bars and shops - and only 15 minutes from La Cite. The front of the house is on a busy boulevard, so there is some noise, but nothing that bothered us. A garage was a big plus, although the entrance is quite narrow - so a small car is better! We were offered lifts from the airport if we did not hire a car - a nice touch. We quickly got into the habit of evening drinks on the roof terrace looking out over the towers of La Cite. I would certainly recommend this lovely house to anyone looking to base themselves in Carcassonne.

Vraiment très bien!

  • 5 out of 5
Tout d'abord, un grand merci au propriétaire qui nous a reçu à une heure bien tardive... avec en plus un frigo bien garni qui nous a assuré le petit déjeuner du lendemain! Super.
L'hôtel était bien assez grand pour les 5 personnes présentes pour notre location.
La piscine était un régal une fois rentré dedans!
Seule la terrasse de l'étage supérieur ne nous a pas vraiment emballée ( peut être à cause de la rampe d'accès un peu raide)

De plus, la région est vraiment superbe, que demander de plus? Rien, en sachant que le mieux est l'ennemi du bien!

Superbe maison et accueil délicieux !

  • 5 out of 5
Nous avons été accueillis par des propriétaires prévenants. Le réfrigérateur était rempli, le garage prêt pour notre voiture. La maison est très belle, très bien équipée. Rien ne manque et elle est très propre. Elle est peut-être un peu moins impeccable que sur les photos du site mais de nombreux petits objets lui procurent un charme délicieux. Nous avons reçu de bons conseils pour démarrer notre séjour et l'adresse d'un excellent restaurant (le Comte Roger) dans la cité médiévale. Au départ, Bertrand Rives nous a encore offert une tarte et une bouteille de vin. Quelle gentillesse ! L'endroit est idéal pour visiter Carcassonne et les environs (jusqu'à Leucate !). Nous recommandons cette maison à nos amis qui voudraient résider pour leurs vacances à Carcassonne.

The Medieval Town, Carcassonne’s Castle and its battlements can be visited with or without a guide. The fortified town contains museums, craftsmen and designers’ workshops and many shops, restaurants, and renowned wine bars. Equestrian shows in the ‘lices' and numerous events and street arts on the theme of chivalry will charm adults and children. The city blaze on July 14th is a must-see, just like the Carcassonne Festival from June 22nd to August 5th. Discovery of the low town, the Bastide Saint Louis (markets, covered markets, shops and Place Carnot). The golf course of 'Domaine de l'Auriac' is 10 minutes away.

Numerous trails for walking, cycling or horse-riding. The Canal du midi is a 10 minute walk from the house, with its charming promenades by boat or by bicycle. The Mediterranean Sea is 45 minutes away by car, Narbonne, Leucate and Gruissan are very sought-after seaside resorts where you will be able to practise your favourite water sport (kite surf, wind surf...).
