                                                                                                      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.

It is well appointed, clean and roomy and was very comfortable for our group - 5 of us. It is situated in a lovely quaint French village which is well positioned for visiting scenic attractions in the surrounding area. The village has all the necessary services-a small supermarket, a choice of restaurants, an ATM and a fruit & vegie market on certain days. While there is no car parking at the house, there is suitable parking a short walk away. We enjoyed our stay.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      LOCATION : The apartment overlooks Place Carnot the large square in the centre of town, where cafes and restaurants abound. At weekends there is a buzzing Farmers Market from 7am to salons, fashions, pharmacies etc. In addition, groceries, fresh fruit/veg etc are available from the small but well-stocked Carrefour on the square and the larger Monoprix just a two minute walk from the square. For major provisioning there is a massive Geant near the airport which is a short cab ride for about Euros 20. We chose not to hire a car as everything is within easy walking distance of the apartment including the impressive Medieval City and all the tourist attractions associated with it. The Canal du Midi is a 5 minute walk away where the town dock is a place to sit and eat a picnic lunch watching the comings and goings of boats through the lock. You will also find tourist boats offering lunch/dinner cruises along the canal. THE ACCOMMODATION: It is 63 steps up to this delightful third floor apartment but well worth the effort. We felt much more fit after our week’s stay !! It is large, airy, very well appointed and faces south across the square. There are small balconies from both the lounge and master bedroom which open up to overlook the square. Large windows from the kitchen and second bedroom over look a small sidestreet. It is a peaceful location. All windows are double glazed. Beautifully clean. The apartment is newly decorated and the owners have made a great effort to offer décor and furnishings which are pleasing to the eye with just about every modcon you could possibly want from dishwasher, washing machine and all kitchen gadgetry to comfortable seating, good lighting and cosy bedrooms. We highly recommend this accommodation and hope to return again.
