"Excellent location - good facilities -somewhat difficult for mobility"
This gite is in an excellent location. It is very central to all areas of the city and was very reasonable in cost terms taking into account its facilities and location. It is, typically of the city c… More

"Cheap, cheerful and charming"
Stayed for four nights and it was an ideal base, very close to the centre of the Bastide St Louis in Carcassonne.
It's a quirky little place on a narrow street but clean, comfortable and well appointed. Monsieur Fichot was very pleasant and was waiting for us when we arrived at the agreed time. It cost less than 50 euros a night so a bit of early morning noise was to be expected and not a problem.
You only need a couple of days to take in Carcassonne's attractions but the town makes a good base with the train station offering easy access - there's even a 1 euro train to Limoux and Quillan to encourage tourists.
Enjoyed our stay and would recommend.

We came to stay in this apartment for 5 days in april. We had an absolutely wonderful stay.
I am very unimpresed in the previous comment which put down the hosts. They were both absolutely lovely. I spoketo Cathy via email before visiting and we agreed the price and deposit.
Cathys husband was waiting for us upon our arrival which made things very easy. He was a lovely gentlemen, very helpful, friendly and forgave us for our terrible attemps at speaking french!
The apartment is absolutely charming, we spent alot of time i the kitchen, cooking with the windows open letting in the sunshine. We also particularly liked the bedroom, which had beautiful blue cloudy paint on the walls and very pretty bedding. All of the coviniences were fabulous, nothing to complain about.
The location of the apartment is fantastic, right in the centre of the new town, with all of the shops and markets within a two minute walk. Also the la cite, is only a five or ten minute stroll away. We particularly like the area down by the river where there are picnic benches and lovely views.
There is a great little supermarket in the square, place carnot, as well as many great bakerys and butchers.
We will definately be staying here again, and would like to say a huge thankyou to the owners for a fantastic price, welcome and apartment!

We arrived here late, because my son got sick on the drive down. The owner wasn't helpful though. I told him we would give him 5 euros per hour we were late. But, we thought "caution"… More
Our constant concern is to satisfy our guests. We welcome guests for 2 years with great pleasure, we practice low price and we have always given back the "caution" after each stay.
However,our work is paying off. We don't ask for deposit and we note the payment is made on arrival.
However,these tourists didn't want to pay their dues and we had to settle for a low down payment on arrival.
Among other thing, we had the kindness to wait for this people, coming up with 9 hours late at 2.30 am.

"Fantastic, centrally located, comfortable accommodation!"
My daughter (7), a friend and I stayed in this gite for 2 weeks in October this year. Robert and Cathy are very friendly and helpful hosts. The gite is in the heart of the lower city, within easy walking distance of the canal, railway station, Citadel, river etc. It was clean and tidy and well appointed for a small family who preferred to cook our own meals rather than eat out every night.
One word of warning: this gite is 4 rooms over 4 floors - i.e. you need to be able to easily navigate stairs - and is not suitable for anyone with limited mobility.
Overall I highly recommend this gite. We had a wonderful 2 weeks exploring Carcassonne and the wider area from it and would return again if we got the chance.
