Brilliant bright cosy apartment with everything you could need. Fab views of the castle and city. Very handy and central for shops and le gare. Near bus stop for castle and to get around without a car. Adrien and his family are charming hosts. We had a wonderful Christmas. Will book this apartment again.
The guide to Carcassonne in the flat that Adrien has spent time putting together is great with ideas of where to go and places to eat.and lots of hints and tips to make the stay perfect. For last minute and out of hours purchases the tabac / petrol station is nearby.. All in all a super stay
The house basically has three rooms: the kitchen/diner, bedroom and small sitting room with open roof terrace. There is also a shower-room/wc. It's small but it all works very well.
The ground floor kitchen/diner has all you need including a good wood burning stove for cooler months. There are also electric heaters should you need them. The bedroom on the first floor is fine with adequate storage and a good bed. The sitting room on the top floor is small but with big windows looking onto a similarly sized roof terrace where you can sit out. It is all well decorated and very well kept. The owner is local and very helpful.
We found parking right outside the front door to be easy, but it was a French school holiday period, but parking is not going to be a problem.
The town is small but manages three or more bakeries, several restaurants and bars, post office, butcher and good modern super market - all within walking distance. It also has a good cave cooperative selling its good wine at good prices under the name of "Brian".
On Tuesdays there is an enormous local market running through half of the town. It's very good with a wide range of products. Excellent for vegetables etc. The market comes within about 80m of the house - no need to drive and park.
Further afield, there's lots to see and do and getting around by car is easy.
We enjoyed our stay and will return.
