About the Owner

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.

My friend and I chose this apartment because of the location and the good reviews,we were not disappointed. Raymond picked us up from the airport and gave us a mini tour of the town.He was very helpful and gave us lots of useful info .The apartment was spotless and had absolutely everything you could need. It was close to the square/new town and trains and buses very close . La Cite is amazing and about 20 minute walk away. We caught the 1 euro train to Quilion and also visited Narbonne .La Lac is a hidden secret! Its a lovely lake with a sandy beach and very nice to swim in(I Did)There are loads of nice resturants close by ,the nicest is the one with the storks outside called L ALSASSIETTE I can recommend the duck! Overall this is a fab place to stay.Donna and Helen

  • 5 of 5

Owners, Raymond and Julie really looked after us. It made all the difference to a great trip. We arrived at 5:30am and special arrangements were made for us to access the property. Offers of picking up from airport or station adds a touch of class. Both Raymond and Julie had lots of really good tips on where to eat , places to visit , things to do, local car hire at a really reasonable cost. The apartment is only 10 mins from the town square and really close to the bus and trains. The area itself is awesome- red guest books has lots of comments from other guests on where to go and what to do. The apartment itself was spot on. We were a family of 4 (12 &15) so although a bit of a squeeze apartments upstairs might be more spacious with a balcony. But for our needs it was fine. This is probably the only place I would recommend both for the location, quality of accommodation and the owners. We are already looking to return. Highlights of visits were La cite-of course, would recommend visiting Lac de la cavayere-a man made lake with 2 beaches and an aqua park,also Lastours and further afield Mountsegur. We came by train from the UK, so the bus from La dome to the lake for €1 each was great. Car hire-ask Raymond about LOV car hire-great deal. If you have half the great time we had you will, I am sure, have a great time.

Les Bottes Cachees,(the hidden boots) Carcassonne

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the ground floor apartment 'Muscat' and it was the perfect home from home and had everything we needed. The townhouse is well located to the town square, shops and restaurants and has been lovingly restored by its current owners Raymond & Julie to an excellent standard and was very well maintained and clean. Raymond welcomed us and was extremely helpful and informative about Carcassonne itself and the surrounding area. We visited 'La Cite' including the castle and ramparts, the bustling local market in the town square with its many pavement cafes, the Canal du Midi and we also travelled to Toulouse, Narbonne and Narbonne Plage which were easily accessible by train and the local bus service. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Lovely apartment in central location

  • 5 of 5

We had an enjoyable stay in this lovely apartment, which has a modern fully fitted kitchen, including dishwasher. The spacious bathroom has a large walk in shower. The bedroom is fitted and the bed is comfortable, including the pull down bed settee in the living area.This property would be ideal for people with mobility problems as there are no stairs. Carcassonne is a wonderful place to visit and many thanks to Raymond and Julie the owners who helped to make our stay all the more enjoyable,

Perfect location and lovely apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment itself was lovely and really clean, we had everything we needed there and felt right at home!

It's in a great area, within walking distance of the medieval cite (la cite) and the train station and many bus stops.

We did not have a car but this wasn't a problem due to the location of the apartment. We were also very close to plenty of restaurants and shops.

The owners were lovely and very helpful wherever possible! We had a small tour on the way from the airport to the apartment which helped us get around easily.

I would recommend this apartment to anyone!

Happy Stay in Carcassonne

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Raymond & Julie's apartments! All 3 flats are kitted out immaculately, with the old property charms and quirkiness remaining. The balcony overlooking the church is a sunny, secluded spot, especially for breakfast, with the bells and birdsong the only sounds. Amazing considering we were in the centre of town. Raymond picks up guests from Carcassonne airport. On our first visit he took us on a quick tour for an overview of the city, saving us the usual first day of finding out the local places of entertainment etc. On one visit we hired a car from a local garage and toured the many & spectacular Cathar Castles in the region. We recommend you read the visitors' book for lots of helpful comments and tips such as the 1Euro train trip to Limoux and Quillan, the neighbouring church tower and mint tea at cafe Cassablanca. A local bus takes you to the lake for a seaside feel or there's the Canal du Midi for a quiet stroll or an organised boat trip. So much on offer, this is a great place for a holiday.

Facilities

From the Owner

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.
