The house was really tastefully decorated yet was homely and comfortable. It was equipped with everything we needed. Susan was welcoming and we knew we could call on her if we had a problem, needed information about the area or anything else. The house is ideally located for walking into town or driving further afield - some of us were only too happy to spend time basking in the sun by the gorgeous pool in the beautiful garden! Lots to do and see in the area, though. We hated leaving, but returned home relaxed and refreshed and feeling that we'd had a really good holiday. We can't recommend this property and its owner, Susan, too highly. McColgan family - London

The photos do not lie. It is a delightful little house, as cosy and romantic as Shelley described it. Although we didn't use it, there is a lovely little terrace.Everything has been carefully thought out to make guests feel comfortable and at home, with an abundance of useful information from places to visit, how to get to them on foot and by other means it transport, as well as restaurant recommendations. The only criticism is no television, not from me, but by husband. However there was a lovely variety of CDs, and you can connect to the Internet to watch online movies, news etc.(Although secretly, I know my husband would have liked the option of television.) it is spotlessly clean and well maintained. The location is fantastic being right in the middle of Carcassonne. Shopping is practically on the doorstep, and places to visit within easy walking distance. Even parking is not a problem, as it is free from 6.00pm until 9.00am, and you can find places to park for free in the streets a bit further away, although we never needed to.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Jason met us at the airport and showed us around the apartment, before dropping us off at the supermarket to stock up. He also gave us some great recommendations for restaurants. The apartment itself is full of character, with lots of lovely old beams, but also modern and contemporary and well equipped, with very comfortable beds. It was also spotlessly clean. The covered roof terrace with views across the rooftops and up to the Cité is lovely. We enjoyed exploring all areas of Carcassonne (Cité, Bastide, Aude river and Canal du Midi) on foot; everything is easily accessible from the apartment and there are trains/buses if you want to travel further afield. We would thoroughly recommend trying La Crêperie Le Blé Noir for excellent pancakes; the owner is a real character too! We needed to pre-book a table, even in October. At La Grande Bouffe we had the best steak ever, cooked over an open fire; the meat was simply presented, very tender and full of flavour. We also visited Au Lard et au Cochon, but found the food rather fatty and a bit lacking in flavour there. L'Auberge des Lices in the Cité has a more formal atmosphere; the homemade cassoulet is excellent (as was all the other food there). Carcassonne itself is characterful and quirky, and the famous fortified city and castle with their fairytale appearance are well worth a visit.
