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.

It was a class above what I'd previously thought of as a typical gite - comfortable, well-equipped, and well furnished, with a tasteful blend of traditional and modern. The grounds are spacious, with amazing views all round and the outdoor facilities are excellent. Neil and Vickie are helpful and welcoming hosts who are justifiably proud of what they have achieved, and deserve great success. Villepinte is a great centre for touring, with heathland, coast, mountains and coast all reachable, and all worth visiting, and the great city of Toulouse is just down the autoroute, with Albi not much further. There are plenty of restaurants within driving distance, but you must visit the wonderful food market at Revel - the best small town market I have ever seen.

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.

Carcassonne is perfect for a couples' trip - so much to see and do with great places to eat and drink. The house was the perfect base. Returning home in the evening to cook dinner in the cosy kitchen diner was always a pleasure and we had the best sleeps in the enormous bed. Only downside is that parking is a bit of a pain.
