Our modern, light, airy and truly romantic apartment, with private parking, is located on the Square Gambetta, the perfect setting for that SPECIAL BREAK. - We offer a free "Meet and Greet service" at the airport.

It lies between La Bastide - the bustling old town, with its quaint narrow streets and numerous bars, restaurants, designer boutiques and shops selling objets d'art - and La Cité, the internationally acclaimed mediaeval walled fortress, now a World Heritage site. It is a short walk to the railway station. Alternatively, the frequent shuttle bus service from Carcassonne airport stops two minutes away from our front door.

The apartment, which this year has been tastefully refurbished and furnished to a very high standard, is located on the third floor, (without lift). It comprises a spacious open plan salon-dining area with stunning views over the red tiled rooftops towards La Cité and beyond to the peaks of the distant high Pyrenées.

In the apartment there is a fully equipped kitchen with fridge, ceramic hob, fan oven, microwave and all utensils, crockery, glasses, pots and pans, bright, airy and modern bathroom with luxuriously deep bath, wash hand basin and independent multi-function shower and a separate wc. Two bedrooms ; the first containing a seductively comfortable king size bed - which can be used as two single beds if preferred - and the second an additional double bedroom

The apartment is warm and cosy. There is a TV, DVD player, plus an iPod dock.  Original paintings by our artist friends, and other Art Deco items, add to the unique ambiance - which will ensure that you look forward to returning time and time again...

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

LANGUEDOC-ROUSSILLON and the AUDE

With its stunning countryside and Mediterranean climate, the Aude is the perfect holiday location. This area of south-west France is noted for its vineyards and pretty villages yet the safe and sandy beaches just outside Narbonne and the foothills of the majestic Pyrenées are just an hour's drive away. The region is rich in history, culture and tradition. Explore the ancient abbeys, the astounding ruined castles of the Cathars, the "Bastide" towns and much, much more. 

There again, for those who simply wish to lie back, relax and chill, the food and wines of this sun-drenched corner of Le Hexagone will delight the palate of even the most discerning Francophile. From the chic, fine-dining Michelin starred restaurants, through the traditional brasseries, to eating "al fresco" at a gem of a fish bistro on the banks of the Canal du Midi - here is something for everyone to treasure. Hundreds of proud, family run vineyards lie within easy reach : the "Appelations" of Minervois, Fitou, Corbieres, St. Chinian, and Limoux (famous for its sparkling champagne-like wines before Dom. Perignon existed!) all lie within the Département of the Aude.

Carcassonne

CARCASSONNE

The two quarters of the ancient city of Carcassonne could hardly be more different. The narrow, cobbled streets of La Cité take you back in time as they wind their way beneath the crenellated walls of this mediaeval fortress, the largest and best preserved in France. The breathtaking view as you approach the floodlit bastion at night by crossing the old footbridge over the river is one that will never leave you. Ever since Walt Disney was inspired to use La Cité as the model for Sleeping Beauty's castle film-makers have harnessed the magic of its appeal. "The Name of the Rose" and "Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves" are two shot on location here, while local novelist Kate Mosse is the latest author to have featured La Cité in her book "Labyrinth". Every year, on Bastille Day (14th July) a spectacular fireworks display attracts thousands of people from all over the country to witness the re-enactment of the siege of La Cité by Simon de Montfort's army in 1209. 

 

During the summer months the Carcassonne Festival provides the stage for a host of internationally acclaimed performers to entertain the many visitors who throng the town. Such stars as Diana Ross, Sting, Seal and Supertramp have appeared in recent years, enthralling the 3,000 fans who fill the open-air amphitheatre below the Viscount's Castle in La Cité. Every aspect of the Arts is represented during the Festival, which grows in popularity from year to year.

STOP PRESS.The dates for the Festival de Carcassone are now online at.
