Sylvie was very helpful is getting us settled in and it was a joy to stay in the apartment. We spent a week based in Carcassonne and travelled widely up to the north and down to the Pyrenees in the south doing hill walks and treks through the beautiful countryside. As a result, it was always a pleasure to arrive back in the evening after a long day and relax in the apartment. It is clean and well maintained and is superbly situated if you have hired a car as the underground car-park is 2 minutes walk and only costs 20 Euros for a week's hire. I would certainly recommend it! Francis

It had everything we needed (a family of 4) and is a perfect base to explore the wonderful region. A DVD player would be a welcome addition, that said we would definitely return.
