"Great apartment with a close location to the castle"
We had a very enjoyable 11 night stay at Apartement Ney which is ideally placed to access both La Cite (Carcassonne Castle) and La Bastide St Louis (the old town with shops/restaurants).
The apartment was in an old building but has been renovated to a high standard for modern living and with two children, the wifi access and British freeview tv channels were fab! There is a good selection of English books, as well as cards and board games.
The kitchen is very well equipped, with a good sized fridge and great cooker and all the utensils you would need for your stay. The dining table extended to so plenty of room for family meals.
Fans are provided in each bedroom which made a big difference and made sleeping very comfortable in the city summer heat. The bathroom is modern with a lovely corner shower and everything was very clean upon our arrival.
The pretty roof terrace, overlooking the castle and rooftops, made for a great setting and enabled us to spread out more and do our own thing.
We loved the area and found that we visited La Cite everyday, even though the walk up was steep!! People in Carcassonne were very friendly and the city is well adapted for tourists without feeling too touristy. There are plenty of restaurants/cafes for meals out and pretty squares in which to have a relaxing drink and people watch.
For children, there are the Aqualand water parks not too far away and beautiful beaches close by (we went to Gruissan Plage, near Narbonne (45mins) and Canet-Plage (1hr 30), which were both stunning.
If we went to Carcassonne again, we would definitely book Apartement Ney; it's the perfect size for a family or couple or even a single person on their own and only being a 10 minute walk to La Cite makes it ideal if you want to immerse yourself in history. The owners were really helpful when we needed to contact them prior to the holiday and met us at the property, giving us lots of info on the local area. Our kids loved Carcassonne....especially Les Chevaliers de la Cite (their medieval re-enactment performance and riding skills were amazing!).

"Beautiful flat with a fantastic view"
A really lovely apartment - comfortable, spacious, and probably the best equipped holiday flat we have rented. The terrace is the high point with a splendid view of the old cite - perfect for relaxing with an early evening aperitif! The owner is friendly and very helpful. We will rent this flat again, and recommend it to our friends without hesitation.

"Lovely apartment in central location"
This apartment is ideally situated, within easy walking distance of all sights. The covered balcony is lovely and kept us cool during the heat of the day. Good views from here at night too.
Must mention the friendly and helpful apartment owner. Being picked up from the airport was a very relaxing way to start our holiday.

"A great place to stay!!!"
Couldn't recommend more highly for comfort, proximity, utilities, warmth (it was unseasonably cold/rainy!) and friendliness of owners.Only slight quibble was inability to get internet when wirele… More
Nice to hear these guests would highly recommend us.
With regard to the internet, it is very rare we have any problems as all the electrics and cabling are new and have passed inspection. Living locally we normally respond very quickly to any problems. Unfortunately, during the weekend stay of these guests we were out for the day and did not receive their text until the evening. As they were leaving in the morning we decided not to bother them on Sunday night. We met the guests on the Monday morning and found the fault was a loose cable on the router. We do always check the wifi is working prior to guests arrival as we do appreciate the importance of it to many guests. Indeed, we have guests staying for long periods who rely on the internet for their work and contact with family and friends.
