We just spent a week in this apartment, which we found to be in a lively part of town, very close to the river, many many restaurants and bars, and lots of quirky little independent shops. We spent a lot of time exploring on foot, and this was a great starting point, with easy access to St Cyprien across the river, the Capitole and all the shops in the centre, and Esquirol and Carmes along the river. We walked on one day to Matabiau, and this took about half an hour. It's not far to the Metro, we just preferred to explore the streets.
We intended to walk along the Canal du Midi and didn't have time, but this would have been an easy walk as well.
Definitely would recommend this to people who want to be right in the heart of things - it would work well if you enjoy a drink and a party, because it's close to one of the universities and there was always stuff going on. However - no need to be put off if you're not a party animal - we're not either, and we found the soundproofing really good, so that if you don't want to stay out late, you can block out the sounds and still get a really good night's sleep - important in an area like this, I think.
As for the apartment itself, we loved it! Lovely light and airy living room, nice decor and design details, very clean and tidy - perfect for a week's stay. It had a washing machine which we found really handy, and the bathroom was great, with a really good raindance-style shower. Sylvie and Joseph were really friendly and flexible about our flight times, and were contactable on the phone. They also provided details of nearby restaurants amongst other things in an info pack, several of which we tried and enjoyed. We definitely plan to come back to this warm and beautiful city, and would recommend this apartment to any single person or couple!
