“Great location,”
Reviewed 21 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Great location very close to the old city and a short (5min) walk from the airport bus stop.
Property is in a very quiet & peaceful street. Unassuming front door opens up into a very well equipped, warm and spacious house over three levels. We (two couples) found ample space to sleep / eat / relax - the patio / garden with furniture / cushions etc was a welcome bonus. Small local shop just a few minutes away for rolls & juice etc. UK based owner very approachable and responsive. Recommended by friends to us - and we would highly recommend it to others.

“Beautiful, cozy house in a magnificent location”
Reviewed 2 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Our family of four had a wonderful time staying in this very comfortable house in Carcassone. The views from the windows looking toward the Carcassone Cité walls are spectacular! The house itself is spacious and includes everything one needs. Recently renovated, tastefully decorated, clean, and with lots of great information about things to do in the region. I'd recommend this house to anyone without mobility restrictions. Thank you, Gail, for a wonderful stay!

“Absolutely Fabulous!!”
Reviewed 19 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We had been enthusiastically recommended this property by a friend who had stayed there last year and were not disappointed at all. It was exceptionally clean and
regardless of the fact that it is about 300 years old (older than some countries amazingly) and undoubtedly had it's quirks, the owner had thoughtfully provided all 'mod cons' whilst also retaining the absolute and simple charm of the property that only comes with age.
We stayed here for a week with friends from Australia (there were 2 couples) and really enjoyed candlelit evenings in the garden with the illuminated cite as a most magnificent backdrop.
We were fortunate to have the same view from our bedroom on the first floor which had a queen (or large double) bed and wet room style ensuite.
Nothing was too much trouble for the owner. From original booking to changing dates at very short notice she was flexible and gracious.
Our only issue was that we wished in hindsight that rather than taking a week to travel home that we had stayed on at this lovely property. Thank you for sharing it Gail.

“Perfect place”
Reviewed 17 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

My friend Jane booked this house for the 4 of us to stay in from 6 October to 12 October 2014. The location is just perfect with easy access to the old cite. The secret stair passage is a bit daunting but we managed it. Such a great base for exploring the region and being 4 of us we had plenty of room in the house. Everything is thoughtfully provided and a lot of care has been taken to ensure everything is provided. My only 3 criticisms was the staircase to the bedrooms, only providing double beds, not queen size beds and that the beds were very uncomfortable. Certainly the one I slept in downstairs was very hard. We enjoyed being able to catch up and share meals together. We came from Australia and my friend Jane and partner from the UK. Well done Gail your house is beautiful, thank you letting us rent it from you.

“Home from home”
Reviewed 13 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

House was amazing. Well equipped and a view to die for! Location was perfect with a short Walk to La Cite and 20 min Walk to centre of Carcassonne. Great tapas bar in La Cite called L'Escargot. Cycled along Canal du Midi to Trebes would recommend doing this rather than Canal boat trip. Pezenas & Grissan are a must, just don't go on Monday's, pick the market days. Thanks Gail, we had a wonderful time.
