including a combination boiler, which provides heat as well as plentiful hot water on demand. The apartment was recently remodelled and refurbished and new double glazed rear windows were fitted over winter 2010.

For 2013 we have upgraded the combi Microwave and grill to a model with a convection oven too - perfect for roasts, baked potatoes and pizzas!

"Central but a little damp"

The location is excellent, with basic but adequate furnishing. Unfortunately the apartment, which is on the ground floor, was a bit dark and damp during our visit, and for security reasons the windows… More

"A real home-from-home, great location, excellent service, highly recommended!"

If you're looking for a real taste of Carcassonne, then Apartment La Republique is the one to cherry pick in this rather beautiful part of the world. The fantastic host Lesa from Club Carcassonne… More

"A very nice apartment with lots of room"

A very comfortable apartment on the ground floor, having no stairs was a nice change. The lounge was spacious and there were two good sized bedrooms. It was within walking distance to the shops and the station. And if you don't mind walking, you can also walk to the old city. We were met at the apartment when we arrived in Carcassonne, so there was no waiting around.

Thanks for your comments and apologies for the washing machine and tap. We only became aware of the problems just before your stay. Both have now been repaired. We will also be buying a new sofa bed for the lounge very soon, I'll update the main listing once we've got it.

Many Thanks,

The apartment was spacious enough for four adults in comfort. It was idealy situated within walking distance of anything of interest in Carcassonne and only a ten euro taxi ride from the airport. 500 mtrs from the railway syation and the Canal du Midi, same from the tourist information. Supermarket only 200 mtrs and the old city/citadel at one kilometre. Definitly recomended!

"Great Carcassonne apartment"

We were happy with the ground floor apartment in every respect including the cost - aside from having to use a lighter to ignite the gas stove - the local agent gave us a cigarette lighter when we com… More
