It is in a great location to enjoy the Cite, the Bastide and the Canal de Midi. The apartment is very well equipped and comfortable, we self catered quite a bit and everything we needed was there. The terrace is a lovely haven with seating area, eating area and sunbeds - as it is an apartment it is overlooked by other residents but that is to be expected - a lovely place to sit in the evening with a glass of wine or two! The apartment has a very good shower with plenty of hot water all the time. Take a couple of English DVD's if you fancy a film night, it is possible to use the tv remote to convert to English on the odd broadcast programme but it was only the odd thing. Sylvie is a great host, very helpful, and even arranged for us to drop our suitcase with her husband Luc as we arrived very early - she is full of information about the area and supplies plenty of maps and guides, recommended restaurants and wines to buy in the local supermarket - fantastic, thank you. Many thanks to Sylvie and Luc, we enjoyed our stay in your lovely apartment and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Kind regards, Pete and Julie.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The holiday started with being picked up at Carcassonne airport at no extra charge, a bottle of wine awaited us along with tea coffee milk etc. The apartment was spotlessly clean and like home from home. The location could not be better 10 minutes walk from La Cite and the same to La Bastide. We didn't hire a car and we found getting about by train and bus no problem. There are numerous restaurants and bars near at hand which all vary in price and taste so something for everyone. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone.
