    Description

    Sleeps 2. Romantic 1 bedroom townhouse with terrace, perfect for couples.

    Our little townhouse is in the very heart of the historic Bastide Saint Louis, so is convenient for everything without having to hire a car. You can walk to the medieval la Cite, the Canal du Midi, Place Carnot, River Aude and enjoy having great amenities just minutes away. This is a town of festivals and events, wonderful food and wine and friendly local people. This area is steeped in history and of course, beautiful South of France sunshine!

    The house dates back to 1624 and when we renovated in 2009, we were careful to retain as many original features as possible. As this is our own 'home from home', you'll find many personal touches - it's a far cry from standard and often soulless holiday accommodation.

    Romantically furnished, the spacious master bedroom features an original fireplace, solid oak floor, luxury linens on a kingsize bed and access through to your en-suite bathroom complete with roll-top bath, separate walk-in shower and exposed brickwork. The kitchen is well equipped with a full oven / hob, solid oak worktops, character sink and taps, microwave, dishwasher, fridge with freezer compartment and all the pots, pans and culinary equipment you need to enjoy eating in. There's also a table and chairs on our sunny terrace for dining 'al-fresco'. The living area has 2 large sofas, a flat screen TV with DVD and a good library of films to choose from. There's also a CD player with iPod dock, games, lots of books to stretch out and relax with and free WiFi.

    The property is laid out over three levels with bike storage and washing machine on the ground floor, large master bedroom and en-suite bathroom on the first floor and finally, at the top of the house, your lounge and kitchen with doors opening out onto your own terrace, perfect for relaxing at any time of the day.

    Directions

    It's easy to visit Carcassonne with low cost airline Ryanair flying direct from several UK airports.

    Once here there is a shuttle bus which meets each flight direct. It takes about ten minutes to arrive at the train station which is just a short stroll from the house, crossing the Canal du Midi into the historic Bastide. The price per adult is 5 euros and your ticket remains valid for local travel for the rest of the day. Alternatively there are hire car offices opposite the airport and we can provide you with driving directions.

    You can also choose to arrive by train from Paris, Toulouse or (via Narbonne) Montpellier, Perpignan and even Barcelona. Neighbouring towns are easily accessible by train including Limoux (Blanquette, the region's equivalent to Champagne is made here), Castelnaudary (famous for its Cassoulet, the region's speciality dish) and Alet-les-Bains, a delightful spa town.

    Living up to expectations

    Beautifully renovated upstairs apartment in historic Carcassonne with charming roof terrace - we enjoyed our coffee and croissants there every morning of our stay (the bakery is just along the street!). Great central location so shops, supermarkets and fabulous local food markets are on your doorstep, along with wonderful restaurants to suit all budgets - the owners provide helpful info on good places to eat as well as what to see and do. The famous castle (a World Heritage site) is walking distance too, so a car is unneccessary unless you want to venture further afield. Do take a trip to the nearby lake where the water makes for a very refreshing swim (you can catch a bus), or cruise the canal like we did, taking in the sights. I loved the apartment - very comfortable and tastefully renovated. Well maintained, too. Two points worth noting: the stairs are a little steep so not so good if you have any mobility problems and if you do have a car you can't park outside - you can load/unload but then have to drive to a car park further away. We were there for a week and had time to discover the surrounding countryside and take a drive down to the Med for some sea and sand (about 45mins - 1hr), as well as exploring this fascinating town. I can totally recommend this charming apartment for your holiday - it's great value, met all our expectations and the owners do their utmost to make your stay memorable.

    Reviews submitted by the advertiser

    Thank you for allowing us to stay in your property... it was everything we wished for and more. It could not have been more perfect, we really think you have thought of every detail, large and small and I cannot think that you could do anything to make it better. The bedroom is by far the largest we have ever stayed in, with a bed to die for. I am really fussy over pillows but boy, yours fitted the bill, the best I have ever slept on. We loved the area and hope to return one day. Thank you for everything you did to make our stay a great one from day one with your fantastic communication. Nick & Christine, April 2018.
