Make a holiday rental villa or property in Carcassonne, South West France your home away from home

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.

Things to do on holiday in Carcassonne, France

The ancient centre of Carcassonne was included on the UNESCO world Heritage List in 1997, due to its magnificent medieval heritage. Surrounded by imposing stone walls, the old centre holds a huge number of attractions, from the open air theatre to the Basilique Saint-Nazaire and from the fortified Chateau Comtal to the 14 defensive towers that surround the walls. The Carcassonne tourist information centre has guides and all the information needed for an entertaining and informative tour of the ancient city centre. The Carcassonne tourist information centre also houses a scale model of the town allowing you to plan your tour.

In the modern part of Carcassonne, the Musee des Beaux-Arts is a huge attraction, displaying fine pieces from the 17th – 20th Centuries. The trice-weekly food market which comes into town on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays also attract a large number of visitors, but there is no need to buy too much as Carcassonne is also known for the number of top-class restaurants and cafes which can be found throughout the town.

Magical moments in La Petite Maison in Carcassonne

5 of 5
Despite some initial difficulties due to our late arrival, once we eventually got to La Petite Maison they were quickly forgotten. 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.

5 of 5
Lovely apartment, very well fitted out and very nice feel to it. 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.

Great apartment

4 of 5
Great apartment, centrally located. Clean and well equipped. Wouldn't recommend 2nd bedroom for more than one adult though as very small. Apart rom that perfect for what we wanted.
