Exactly as lovely as it looks

5 of 5
This is a lovely, good-sized property in great condition with a well appointed kitchen - huge fridge, coffee machine, and all the utensils you will need. The pool is a further away from the house and is also bigger than it looks online. Our teenage kids spent most of their time in the pool, but there was also plenty of space to play badmington and frisbee - the garden is huge. The property is located up in the hills above the plains where Carcassonne is located. We did the big shopping there and then topped up on bread locally day to day. The boulangerie in Montelieu was open on Sunday but not Monday. The house is remote and peaceful - part of its appeal for us. It was really hot so we didn't walk as much as we thought we would! The beds were comfy and we slept well when we weren't out looking at all the stars we could see in the pitch black nights. The property has good wifi and British TV for evening entertainment. We felt quite at home and had a wonderful time.

Brilliant appartment in an excellent location

5 of 5
We had an excellent stay in Carcasonne made possible by this excellent appartment The equipment in this venue was first rate and it was very spacious and would easily accommodate a larger group Parking in front was a huge bonus as it was quite a busy little road due to its awesome location so close to the cite Loads of bars and restaurants close by and that's without walking up to the fort Only two minor gripes.....the bath I'd have preferred a good shower and unfortunately they are renovating next door so we had a bit of noise However I would not hesitate to go again
