About the Owner
About raymond hainey
After holidaying in the area for many years, we decided that the laid back French way of life was definitely for us. We came across the property a few years ago. It was in a terrible, run-down state and we have worked hard to lovingly restore this property to its former glory. We hope our guests enjoy the area and that they appreciate the hard work we have put in to restore this charming 16th Century house and retaining most of the original features.
raymond hainey purchased this apartment in 2010
Why raymond hainey chose Carcassonne City
We loved the fact that the property was right in the heart of Carcassonne, with all the amazing shops, restaurants and cafes on our doorstep.
We love spending weekends down on the Mediterranean which is just 45 minutes away.
There are many lovely villages to explore nearby, especially the famous book village, Montolieu and Saissac with its amazing Chateau.
What makes this apartment unique
We spent a lot of time making sure that the property retained its original features but also had all modern facilities.
The lovely terrace is perfect to enjoy a glass of wine or simply enjoy the views of St.Vincent Cathedral. It is very rare to get outdoor space in the heart of Carcassonne and that is one of the reasons that we were attracted to this property.
La Cite is just a 15 minute walk away, and there are so many restaurants and shops to explore nearby. Place Carnot is particularly nice to sit and enjoy a drink and watch the locals going about their business.

Excellent apartments in a superb location
We really enjoyed Carcassone and the comfort and location of these apartments. Raymond the owner was very helpful, picking us up at the airport and showing us around. The apartment was spotlessly clean and very well equipped.Beds very comfortable too. The shower is particularly good with extra water jets . We enjoyed the spacious roof terrace where we downed some of the local wine! The shops , restaurants and canal de midi are less than 10 mins walk and La cite about 25 mins. We will be back!
An ideal apartment for two couples. Full of character, well equipped and in a great location.
Spent a fabulous week in this lovely apartment in the heart of Carcassone. The apartment itself is spacious, well equipped, beautifully restored and has the bonus of an outside terrace. It enjoys a great location being close to the local square and an easy walk takes you to the medieval city with it's many shops, restaurants and spectacular views. Being picked up from the airport was great and Raymond was readily available for any help or advice. A week wasn't long enough to explore fully and I would happily return and would recommend this beautiful apartment to friends and family
Grenache apartment Jul/Aug 2016
A stylish, well appointed apartment, spotlessly clean and well maintained and in an ideal location.What more could you want, would recommend to all!
Great accomodation, perfect location
We stayed in this charming apartment for 4 nights in July 2015. Ray met us and took us to the apartment and gave us a tour of the old town, which has plenty of bars, restaurants and other amenities. The apartment is perfectly located, and only a 10 minute walk to the medieval town. The apartment itself is beautifully furnished throughout, clean and ideal for a getaway. The terrace on the top floor is ideal for a nice glass of wine in the evening and watching the sun go down. I would give the apartment (and the owners), the highest recommendation there is and will be staying again the next time we visit the city.
Just returned from a 5 day stay at these apartments. Really impressed. Very clean, comfortable, with all mod cons. Very well furnished with a excellent shower. Perfect location close to Carcassonne centre and rail station. Certainly will return. Many thanks Raymond for being such a pleasant and helpful host.
Very good apartment
We had a lovely stay in Granache apartment, it's handy for the local restaurants & the railway station and it's well equipped. It has a great shower! Also a nice walk to the old city from here. Raymond & Julie were great hosts & there's loads of information about what to do & where to go. The only slight downside is the staircase up to the balcony is a bit difficult to negotiate with trays of food, but it is an added bonus having a balcony. We would recommend this apartment
