The Languedoc-Roussillon region

Inundated with rich history, the Aude has long been a place of interrest for the gourmet, the historian, and traveller alike. Restaurants are teeming with local specialities such as Foie-Gras, Cassoulet, wild mushrooms and of course the selection of cheeses that are complimented by a wide array of regional wines are found hidden away in the towns dotted around.

The history of the Aude is another example of a historian's dream where religions, royalty and the local people have clashed over centuries leaving a unique culture and landscape filled with castles, walled towns, churches and towering cathedrals speckled about just waiting to be discovered...


The apartments are located just off Place Carnot, the traditional market square of Carcassonne in the medieval heart of the fortified old town, the Bastide. A paradise of cafés, delicatessens, art galleries, restaurants and shops weave together to form the surrounding area. For visitors to the town a car is not required but is recommended for anyone wanting to visit the region in full.

"Nice enough apartment, hospitality lacking"

The stay did not start on a good note. I found that prior to arrival, the owners were generally slow to respond to emails, and would sometimes reply but then not answer the questions I posed. I wrot… More

We take the rental business very seriously and the care and enjoyment of our apartments by our guests is paramount. Nevertheless where criticism is fairly due we always take note to address these issues. We respond as best we can and immediately. In this case the guest was very particular and we did everything we could to accommodate her demands, from an early check in to storage of her bicycle, even to supplying specialist blender for the apartment.

This guest arrived on a day when the office and shop was closed and we arranged to meet her exceptionally at 2pm. It a short walk from the station and if guests arrive earlier than agreed we are more than happy to take in luggage at the shop and office on the ground floor. Almost no other holiday rental apartments offer this a service to guests arriving early. Taxis in Carcassonne will not take anyone for a drive of less than two minutes walk. We do normally provide details of how to reach the apartments if arriving by train, car or bus but guests do normally make their own checks before travelling. In terms of this booking Pipa made a special effort to drive to Carcassonne two hours early arriving at 2pm as arranged, and coming from the florists with fresh flowers for the apartment. The flowers are evident even in the pictures this guest posted.

The linen for the apartments is mostly Frette egyptian cotton, no synthetic material. Some the furniture is French antique but never faulty. There has never been a problem with any of the fixtures or fittings that has gone unfixed and we have gone to considerable effort to ensure that we meet as many of our guests expectations as possible. Our apartments are scrupulously clean but we cannot legislate for the occasional mess made by a pigeon on the balcony.
