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.

Carcassonne is a great base for cycling holidays in south west France. Carcassonne properties are the perfect place from which to set out into the foothills of the Pyrenees, and regularly feature on the course for the Tour de France.

Ideal location

5 of 5
We would thoroughly recommend Sylvie's lovely apartment for a visit to Carcassonne city. It is in a great location to enjoy the Cite, the Bastide and the Canal de Midi. The apartment is very well equipped and comfortable, we self catered quite a bit and everything we needed was there. The terrace is a lovely haven with seating area, eating area and sunbeds - as it is an apartment it is overlooked by other residents but that is to be expected - a lovely place to sit in the evening with a glass of wine or two! The apartment has a very good shower with plenty of hot water all the time. Take a couple of English DVD's if you fancy a film night, it is possible to use the tv remote to convert to English on the odd broadcast programme but it was only the odd thing. Sylvie is a great host, very helpful, and even arranged for us to drop our suitcase with her husband Luc as we arrived very early - she is full of information about the area and supplies plenty of maps and guides, recommended restaurants and wines to buy in the local supermarket - fantastic, thank you. Many thanks to Sylvie and Luc, we enjoyed our stay in your lovely apartment and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Kind regards, Pete and Julie.

Excellent for many reasons

5 of 5
The apartment has every thing you need for a perfect stay. The holiday started with being picked up at Carcassonne airport at no extra charge, a bottle of wine awaited us along with tea coffee milk etc. The apartment was spotlessly clean and like home from home. The location could not be better 10 minutes walk from La Cite and the same to La Bastide. We didn't hire a car and we found getting about by train and bus no problem. There are numerous restaurants and bars near at hand which all vary in price and taste so something for everyone. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone.
