“Cuanto volver Narbonne” Overall I enjoyed my stay at Marie aline's. the apartment itself was spacious, class ,located in downtown of Narbonne near the shopping streets. Communication with Marie Aline via airbnb worked out fine.
Very comfortable bed , nice view over the roofs on cathedral.
WE HAD A WONDERFULL TIME !!
Gracias Marie Aline por tu amabilidad y por una casa tan bonita. ¡Cuanto volver Narbonne!
“Delightful house in an exceptional location” We stayed for a week as a family (two adults, two young boys). The location within Lagrasse couldn't be better; views from every window over the river and abbey, fifty yards from the charming market square which is crowded with artisanal stalls on Saturdays. There is almost no passing traffic except pedestrians so it is quiet and the small courtyard between the gate and front door is a lovely suntrap to sit in. Inside it has been recently renovated to a good standard; our boys loved their large room in the eaves at the top of the house. I strongly recommend this house, the only possible exception would be for babies, as there are marble stairs and a shower but no bath. We loved Lagrasse and the surrounding area, and when we go back we will definitely stay in this house.
“Lovely house in romantic town.” The house is very authentic but comfortable with nice and clean bedrooms, a lovely kitchen and a separate livingroom. On walkingdistance to the square in in the center with cafés, terraces, shops and restaurants. The surrounding is beautifull for walking and cartrips.
“Gorgeous House in Great Location” This is such a lovely house which is actually even nicer than the photos suggest. As 3 couples , the 3 good double rooms with en suites were perfect. the living areas are spacious with plenty of room to sit and chat with a glass of wine in hand.
The outstanding feature is the wonderful view of the wall as you head out of the lounge in to the garden - you could spend many hours just looking at this beautiful cite from the garden! We were lucky to experience the festival whilst there and could here the music from the garden which was wonderful. Equally, the fabulous eletrical storm with the cite as a back drop to the lightening was spectacular.
Gail has beautifully restored the house and everything you could want is provided. The kitchen is very well equipped and a lovely place to cook. It really is a great place to stay.
The location, with a 10 min walk into the cite was perfect, although you can leave your heeled shoes at home with the steep cobbled walk up! The area is lovely too and well worth hiring a car and exploring.
The transfer from Carcasonne airport makes this a really easy desitnation to get to and so nice to land, and be in the house with luggage 30 mins later. Gail's details instructions and helpful welcome book were also much appreciated.
All in all, a lovely house in a great location. I would definitely recommend and look forward to going back again!

“Great accommodation in good location.” This is a spacious and well appointed gite in very good condition. It has plenty of outdoor space too, ideal for BBQ, with the bonus of a pool. The location is peaceful with easy access to the surrounding places of interest with Carcassonne and the sea only a short drive away.
The owners, Louise and Michel, could not have been more helpful and friendly, offering plenty of advise and information on the surrounding area. We were very happy with our stay here.

It was great to meet you and glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We have taken note of your suggestion and plan to have bikes available soon.
“Hired a couple of the apartments out with a group of friends and really enjoyed our stay here” Apartments were spacious, well equipped and good value for money. Having a computer with internet access in each appt was great, as the owner has spent a lot of time putting detailed information about the local area on the website along with map locations etc. There were also maps, a local guide from the Lonely planet and a top tips guide from the owner – all really helped us explore the area which we loved! It’s stunning, and will definitely go back to! Only complaint would be that one of the apartments was a little minimalistic on furniture, not that we needed any more than was there.
We rented out all three flats for a holiday with our extended family. It was perfect for such a large crowd as all flats were accessible from the main hall and stairs. Each floor was beautifully decor… More

“A wonderful getaway home from home!” We had a thoroughly wonderful time at La Mariete and Rose and Terry are the perfect hosts. They made us feel welcome right from the start and the tour of the gite and extra bits of information and advice was much appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble and they were on hand to help without being intrusive. The gite was beautifully clean and tidy with everything you need plus things that you didn't know you needed until you saw them! (Extra plug adaptor, teapot, etc). The swimming pool was fantastic after a long hot day touring the area, followed by a pastis on the loungers and a relaxed evening meal on the decking overlooking the lovely views of the vineyards and forests. Perfect and just wonderful.
Terry and Rose have really thought out what holidaymakers need in the gite. Ideal for a couple who want a relaxing holiday in a great area. The gite is fully equipped to suit a British holidaymaker … More
