Best part for us was the outside space, the pool was great and much needed as the weather was generally around 30°C . We hired a car and enjoyed touring the area. Only downside was that taxis were hugely expensive... €20 euro each way into La Cite Medieval at Carcassonne (it was approx 4km ). Eric the owner was very pleasant and helpful .
