About the property


Rampart Studio is an apartment located at the foot of the medieval city of Carcassonne. From the apartment you look across the rooftops to the towers and ramparts of the the city. It is three minutes walk from the medieval City (which has an abundance of bars & restaurants ) and 15 minutes from the Bastide town centre with all amenities , shops, markets etc; 300 yards away there is an épicerie (grocery, bread, croissants) open early morning and evenings .

The Studio is less than 10 minutes by taxi from the airport ; or an airport bus will drop you off at the Trivalle just 300 metres to walk. Rampart Studio is situated only a few yards from the bigger Rampart Cottage (also advertised on Home Away) -- both can be hired together at a reduced rent for up to 9 people.


The apartment is at first floor level above a garage . A flight of stairs leads to the kitchen-dining-room and a living area with a mezzanine above it with two single beds (there is restricted headroom to this space, and a rather steep staircase which might make it unsuitable for some elderly adults or those with reduced mobility (note the photos of this ). A second staircase leads down to a double bedroom , and to the bathroom (bath, shower, hand-basin, w.c.).

The kitchen area is fully equipped (fridge-freezer, ceramic cooker (4-plaques), oven, micro-wave), coffee-maker etc , and there is TV, DVD & WIFI internet, a washing-machine , electric iron and board. The kitchen –and-living area is attractively decorated, much in natural wood , and there is heating by electric radiators.

Outside - -unlike Rampart Cottage , the Studio does not have a garden or terrace (which makes it cheraper) but you can sit outside at the front of the garage if you wish -- some of our neighbors do this , Spanish style, in the evenings . At present the garage is used only for stockage but your car can be parked in safety in front of it. The strreet is pedestrianised (which makes for peace & quiet and safety from traffic) but with car access for residents and tenants. However, please note that you can have a perfectly good holiday here withoutr a car ! Shopping on foot is easy –- with the local épicerie -- and there are open markets and small supermarkets in the centre of town.

General -- your rent covers cleaning, all bedding & towels, and all services. Entry times are usually flexible , from early mornings to late evenings. Most reservations are for periods of one or two weeks but we accept shorter periods of three days minimum .

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.
