It was all clean; modern and very easy to keep clean. Attention had been paid to every detail, from local maps and rucksack and flasks to appliance instructions and books and board games. The meeting at the beginning and end was prompt and easy. We cooked our meals in the apartment, for which all utensils were supplied. The apartment was overlooking Place Carnot, and it was so easy to pop out into the market for fresh bread and fruit before breakfast. We were not however disturbed by any noise at night from the popular square. We were wanting to walk in the foothills of the Pyrenees as well as local walks. There were plenty of walks behind the chateau, out across the vineyard, with breathtaking views of the chateau and the mountains, but it was also an easy bus or train ride towards Quillan, where there were plenty of circular walks, and the Cathar trail up into the mountains. We would certainly recommend this to anyone wishing to explore the area. Thank you very much Andrea for making us so welcome in your home.

                                                                                                      A charming and comfortable house close to the 'Port de l'Aude' entrance to the medieval Cite.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We were charmed by this comfortable house and it's kind owner, Catherine. The ground floor comprises entrance hallway with wc and garage where there is a washing machine and tumble drier. First floor has the light and airy living space of dining kitchen, lounge area and small terrace. Top floor has double bedroom with balcony looking towards the river and the lower town (La Bastide), while twin-bedded room faces the cobbled street and ramparts of La Cite above. On this floor there is a well-appointed shower room. The house has everything you could need - also milk, juice and delicious locally produced wine on arrival. Our stay was perfect and our deposit returned a few days after we came home. We enjoyed our October week here. Weather was mostly warm and sunny, only cloudy on two days. The house has easy access to La Cite above and we wandered there several times. Plenty of cafes and restaurants within the walls. I would recommend paying for access to the restricted parts of La Cite where you can learn about the history of the walled city and its restoration as well as seeing a great deal more. Walking to the centre of the lower city, La Bastide, over the old bridge, was a matter of only 15 minutes from the house at most and the railway station was only a further 5 minutes from the central square, the Place Carnot, where there are several markets a week. A great place to sit with a coffee or some lunch. There are several cafes on the Rue de Trivalle, just a few minutes walk from the house and an epicerie for essential fresh foodstuffs about 500m from your door (shop in morning). Our favourite local restaurant was the 'Jardin d'Ete', also on the Rue Barbacane. One day we took the train to Narbonne, there changing to the coastal train which took us to Collioure on the coast for shingly beaches and waterfront cafes. The journey took us through coastal flats where we saw white horses, black bulls and pink flamingoes. Trains were fast and efficient and we were able to buy our tickets from the UK before we went to Carcassonne. A great place for a car-free holiday, although I suspect it could be very busy in the summer months.
