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.

Just lovely

5 of 5
We had the pleasure to stay in this delightful house in Carcassonne for one week. Despite there not being many photos of the house before our stay I was confident that Shelly's description would not let us down and I was right. Photos would not do it justice, it has to be seen to be believed. It is described in the literature as a home from home and it was always a pleasure to come back to. Shelley has thought very carefully about what guests would like/need and there are many little extras that made our time there very comfortable. It is in a central location for everything, the station, the canal and The Cite but was still quiet at night. The tourist office is excellent and would also recommend the market on Saturday morning and the bike hire. Thank you Shelley and Simon, and also Fiona who presents the house beautifully.

Character apartment, great location for exploring Carcassonne

5 of 5
Loved the style of the apartment and the location. Spent 6 days exploring the Bastide and the old City. The apartment was very well equipped and had everything that we needed. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
