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.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

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.

Fantastic view of Le cite, as the apartment is right at the bottom of it. Parking tricky round about so it was great to have a garage although pleased we turned down the hire car upgrade as it was good to have a smaller car to manoeuvre in. Hosts lovely and very welcoming. We found lots to do round about and the history, scenery and caves and gorges were stunning. Can't wait to return to this area.

The beautiful house easily accomadate us all, and the children made full use of the swimming pool. The location is excellently located for touring the lovely countryside. The Resteraunt on the midi canal was a favourite, as were the local markets. Buying fresh food and enjoying a evening meal in the farmhouse , kids in the pool, was delightful. The unique henri's bar 110 metres away is a real experience with its large collection of all types of cameras. We were well looked after by the local agent ( a Brit) who checked the pool and any assistance we needed. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable holiday, lovely old house beautifully restored , highly recommended.
