Lovely apartment

4 of 5
Lovely modern apartment, well furnished and equipped with everything you could need. Only English Channel is Sky News, Irish bar across the road shows football matches. The building the apartment is in badly needs some TLC. When we arrived the hall was full of old newspapers, magazines and bags of rubbish, this was cleared away 5 days later but not sure how long it had been there. The staircase is a steep spiral and would not be suitable for those less able. The apt is in a good location with supermarkets, restaurants and s few shops around, it is about a 20 minute walk to the cite and quite a nice walk. It's only about 5-10 minute walk to Canal de Midi where you can get boat trips for around 9 euros. Overall a lovely apartment and we enjoyed our stay.
