Thank you for taking the time to review Maison de Vigne. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. No, we don't have air conditioning. In the days when these cottages were built I guess they knew how to keep a place cool in summer and warm in winter by using thick stone walls. Thank you also for your TV tip.

This guest has pointed out the excellent position of the apartment and in particular proximity to excellent restaurants.
With regard to air conditioning we should mention that it is an old building with thick stone walls which along with the shutters help to keep out heat. Being so close to two UNESCO world heritage sites it is forbidden to have air conditioning units on the outside of the buildings. Hence very few properties have air conditioning. We have several fans in all our apartments and generally the temperatures in Carcassonne are not uncomfortably hot for most people.
This particular apartment is on the second floor of the building and is accessed via a gently winding well lit staircase with landings at each level. We are often asked about the stairs and indeed recently had some guests who wanted to visit before booking for a long period. They managed the stairs easily despite some 'dodgy knees' as they put it.
