About the property

Rampart Cottage

These two neighbouring properties nestle at the foot of the city walls of old Carcassonne , which among with the nearby Canal du Midi, is a UNESCO –registered world-heritage site . A traffic-free lane passes both and leads up to the old city in a two-minutes walk. Descending gently in the opposite direction the lane leads to open parkland (with a children’s play-park) , riverside walks and the countryside.

. The properties are 8 minutes drive from the airport of Carcassonne, one hour from Toulouse, & 20 mins walk from the rail station. T?he town is surrounded by lovely countryside --- pretty villages , vineyards, castles, abbeys , seaside & mountains -- with access to Spain & Andorra .

Outside, across the three-metres wide lane , is a garage (not suitable for parking) with a washing-machine and second w.c. , and steps leading up to the garden and terrace which is well-equipped with tables and chairs and barbecue.

Rampart Studio is an apartment at first floor level without garden or terrace , although there are pleasant open views of the city. The living/dining area (formerly two rooms) has a well-fitted kitchen ----ceramic plaque cooker, oven, fridge-freezer, micro-wave , dining-table & chairs for four --- and a comfortable seating area with TV, DVD, music stereo and WIFI . Above this space there is a mezzanine floor with two single beds (note restricted head-space and stairs fairly steep).

Stairs lead down to a bathroom (bath, shower, basin and w.c.) and a bedroom with double bed. The apartment is heated by electric radiators . There is access outside to a washing-machine if needed.

General

The owners aim at a good level of provision -- the rent includes all bed-linen , towels, cleaning and services ( e g heating) & bed-linen & mattresses are recently new.

We try to provide things which it is annoying to have to pay for when you only need a little amount -- e g cooking oil, condiments, dishwasher-liquid, toilet-paper. Logs are provided for the stove and charcoal to launch the barbecue.

There is free parking beside the house or on adjoining streets. The accomodation may not be suitable for elderly people with acute mobility problems -- if in doubt about suitability, ring the owners to discuss.

Delightful,well presented cottage.

  • 4 of 5

Charming and extremely welcoming. The rooftop garden is a little haven and provides welcome shelter from the heat. The owners ( Tom and Dominique) are very helpful.The proximity to the castle and to the bastide is ideal for travellers without a car. I would certainly recommend this property.
