About Kate Caminada

I currently live in the British Virgin Islands with my husband. My twin daughters live and work here too and I have a son who lives in Norway with his family.

I grew up in the UK, have been a teacher, a BA stewardess, taught in Kenya and here in the British Virgin Islands. My most recent adventure before retiring was in Real Estate which I loved.

Kate Caminada purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Kate Caminada chose Narbonne

Members of my family have had property in the Languedoc Roussilon region for a number of years. Narbonne was always a place we visited because it offered so much to see and do. I decided that being in the city was for me - it is a place that I can use in any season at any age. It is a safe, friendly city and when I started to look for property I was thrilled to find an apartment in the centre, fully modernized and yet retaining oodles of charm and elegance. It is filled with light with marble floors in the hallways and living room and solid wood floors everywhere else. The high molded ceilings throughout the apartment give a spacious feel. The kitchen is modern and the large dining area is ideal for family gatherings or entertaining. The living room is a comfortable room for relaxing. I have installed an interactive TV and there is a desk and comfortable sofas.

Three double bedrooms complete the picture, one with an en suite shower room, the other two bedrooms share a family bathroom with bath and overhead shower.

What makes this apartment unique

What I especially love about this apartment is that I can step out into the city centre to explore or I can walk along the canal. There is a lock just over the road where I can watch boats going in and out; there is an 'artsy' cafe below me on the ground floor where they have poetry readings and art exhibitions. An Edith Piaf night was on the agenda last time I was there. Across the road is the Hotel La Residence, the place to stay if you want a hotel in the centre of the city. It is Kathryn, the receptionist at the hotel who will be looking after you. She is British but having lived in France for donkeys years she is fluent in French and a mine of useful information about the area.

The tourist office is just round the corner and the Cathedral is two streets away. Starlings have taken over the trees in the Cathedral garden and the sound of their chattering and the sight of their murmuring is truly impressive.

Why else did I fall in love with this apartment? It may have been the impressive front door, the grand hallway and the winding stone stairway before I reached the apartment; but then when I walked through the door, it was pure delight at having found my new home in Narbonne.

Notes:
We are two streets away from the cathedral and the centre of Narbonne. We love being able to step outside with all the amenities immediately available. Market days on Thursday and Sundays, a fabulous covered market where you can eat as well. Stroll through the charming old streets with restaurants and boutiques, book stores and antique stores. Catch a bus for one euro to take you to outlying villages and the beach; catch the train, for example to Carcassonne, Montpellier or Barcelona. Explore the countryside with marked trails; walk along the canal in the city and beyond. All in all, Narbonne is a wonderful location, pedestrian friendly, with many historic sites to see in the city and beyond.

Spectacular.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 nights at this beautiful property in July this year. We had very little knowledge of this region of France or this particular town prior to booking our stay. We can say without a doubt that we were absolutely delighted with both this apartment and the city of Narbonne (and its surroundings). This apartment is furnished and decorated impeccably. In particular, if you are a cook, the kitchen is outfitted with all manner of cooking essentials and more. Every room has air conditioning and floor to ceiling windows in each front room let in spectacular light.

The apartment is very quiet with only businesses on the first two floors. We felt very safe and secure. Check-in was coordinated by Kathryn who works across the street. She was very cordial and professional in all interactions. The apartment is perfectly situated within the centre of town and just a short 2 blocks away from the central square and cathedral. Restaurants, coffee shops, shopping and markets are all at your fingertips. Walk along the Canal de la Robine and enjoy open air summer festivities throughout the months of July and August. We were pleased to have food and wine tastings, children's activities, and concerts in the square. You are a 20 minute drive from the beach and intriguing coastal towns. You are an hour's drive from Carcasonne. A fabulous medieval town. The countryside is breath taking and the vineyards and wines they produce phenomenal. Communication was excellent throughout the entire process from booking to check-out. We recommend Kate and her apartment wholeheartedly, and hope to be back soon!

As advertised, a wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

THIS APARTMENT IS IN A PERFECT LOCATION, 5 MINUTES FROM LES HALLEs aND 10 MINUTES FROM THE TRAIN STATION. NOT ONLY IS NARBONNE INTERESTING AND STIMULATING, BUT THE REGION ALSO.

THE APARTMENT is very well equipped, with all you expect, at a high quality. The owner is very supportive of your needs.

An excellent experience. We will return

Owner's Response: It is always a pleasure to hear that our guests have enjoyed the apartment in the centre of Narbonne, sharing in the delights of this historic city, the surrounding villages, countryside and sea. As a result of their time spent here, two of our longer term guests have decided to buy their own place in Narbonne, remaining friends with us. John and Mel are coming back next year for two months - a wonderful recommendation.

Allowed to share a vacation home that is superbly appointed by its generous owner.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was more than anyone can expect when holidaying abroad. Loved by its owner, and shared by my wife and I it was the perfect base to explore Cathar country. Inviting my cousin to join us for a few days gave me a chance to show her Narbonne whilst enjoying the comfort of the spacious apartment.

Will come again.
