Make a holiday rental villa or property in Carcassonne, South West France your home away from home

Property in Carcassonne, south west France, is always in high demand. Located in the popular Mediterranean region of Longuedoc-Rousillon, Carcassonne is a tremendous medieval walled city build on a rocky spur overlooking the river Aude. You could be forgiven for thinking that Carcassonne’s old town was specifically designed as a tourist theme park it is so well preserved, but the towers, drawbridges and cobbled alleys are all authentic and naturally atmospheric.

Things to do on holiday in Carcassonne, France

The ancient centre of Carcassonne was included on the UNESCO world Heritage List in 1997, due to its magnificent medieval heritage. Surrounded by imposing stone walls, the old centre holds a huge number of attractions, from the open air theatre to the Basilique Saint-Nazaire and from the fortified Chateau Comtal to the 14 defensive towers that surround the walls. The Carcassonne tourist information centre has guides and all the information needed for an entertaining and informative tour of the ancient city centre. The Carcassonne tourist information centre also houses a scale model of the town allowing you to plan your tour.

In the modern part of Carcassonne, the Musee des Beaux-Arts is a huge attraction, displaying fine pieces from the 17th – 20th Centuries. The trice-weekly food market which comes into town on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays also attract a large number of visitors, but there is no need to buy too much as Carcassonne is also known for the number of top-class restaurants and cafes which can be found throughout the town.

                                                          Wonderful apartment in excellent position

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          My husband and I have just returned from a three night stay at this apartment which was wonderful. Jason the very nice owner met us at the airport and also returned us to airport at end at no charge - it was much appreciated. The apartment is very well equipped, well laid out and equipped with a lovely outdoor covered seating area. It was extremely clean and very comfortable and had everything that was needed. It was on the 3rd floor with no lift which was not a problem for us (and neither of us are either unfit or fit!) and they were gentle steps. It was in a very good position just near the old bridge that crosses over into the old city but equally close to walking the other direction towards the canal de midi etc. There are loads of restaurants in both directions and a very good one just across from the apartment called Les Mets-Tisses which we highly recommend - we had three wonderful courses and a bottle of wine for £57 and the food was of excellent standard with good service and nice decor/seating. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a well positioned and nicely equipped apartment in Carcassonne.

                                                          Beautiful Apartment

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          We stayed in the Cartier Bresson apartment for 3 nights in April. The apartment is very clean, well equipped and full of French charm. The bed was very comfy and the bed linen was so luxurious. We enjoyed breakfast on the sunny balcony. Also the Wi-Fi connection was very good. The owners were very helpful and ready to answer any questions we had about the local area. Thank you Alex for the wine upon arrival, it was lovely. The apartment is situated very centrally being near to restaurants, bakeries, bars and shops. It is within walking distance to the station and la cite, the medieval town. Bikes are available to hire (near the station) and we had a lovely day cycling along the canal du midi. As the apartment is located centrally, there is some noise from the street below, but it didn't bother us. We had a lovely time, just wish it had been for longer.We can highly recommend.

                                                          This is a beautiful house in a fantastic location. It has plenty of space inside and out and all the facilities that you could need, including a ping-pong table! Plenty to do in the surrounding area such as the Canal du Midi, vineyards, Lastours, Peyrepertuse and Villefranche.
