                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      My wife and I stayed here for three weeks in January/February 2017. We used the apartment as a base whilst visiting family and it was like returning to a "Home from Home" each evening. Like a lot of French shared properties the external entrance and staircase are not pretty. Don't let that put you off, or the climb to the third floor, as the apartment makes up for all that. What I would say is that if your heart isn't so good, or you aren't very fit then 67 steps with suitcases or shopping isn't easy. We were met by Catrina, who was very friendly, and showed us around. The apartment consists of a large lounge overlooking Place Carnot, a well eqipped kitchen at the rear, two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with two singles, and a bathroom. The lounge is spacious with two sofas, table, large tv, dvd, etc. There is reliable wifi and the tv has mainly French channels, though English news channels are available. The well equipped kitchen looks like new and is well equipped with all you might need. Hob, oven, microwave, washing machine, dish washer, coffee maker. The two bedrooms were both very comfortable, with built in wardrobes and plenty of hanging space. Lastly, the bathroom contains a shower, toilet and basin, and again is very clean and modern. The only drawback is, like many French properties, you can smell the drains. The problem is the shower, which empties direct into the drains. This has been minimised by using a plug in the outlet and a plug in air freshener, but it is still ever present, and is the only reason I did not give the property five stars. Overall, the apartment is very well equipped, well decorated, and, as you are living in someone's home, very comfortable. It really was a home from home for us. So, thoroughly recommended, the only drawback being the bathroom.

The bedrooms are all very well equipped and a great size, so no need to fight over who gets the bigger room! The design and decor of the home compliments the area too, so you get a real feel for the place!

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.
