“Great locaton and view.” Stayed here for a week and found it very clean and comfortable. Inga kindly picked us up from the airport (and took us back) which was great. So nice to arrive without the hassle of trying to find where you are staying.

It is lovely to read these positive comments and it makes all our efforts worthwhile.
“Ideal holiday pied a terre” This delightful little apartment was recommended by a friend who had previously stayed here and it didn't disappoint. Bijoux and perfectly situated in a medieval street at the foot of the beautiful old Cite of Carcassonne.

This is a lovely review but to avoid confusion for future guests, the town centre is a comfortable 10-15 minutes walk and the Cite is 5 minutes up a cobbled street. These guests obviously took their time and enjoyed the sights en route.
Carcassonne Cite Townhouse, Three Bedrooms, aircon
A perfectly located, stylish holiday home in a stunning town.
Cite Townhouse was a perfect choice for our short stay in Carcassonne - just minutes from the old Cite and a short, picturesque walk over the old bridge into the 'new' town, making exploring easy.
The decor of the property manages to be very stylish AND comfortable, with everything we could need (apart from heaters and/or throws which, we definitely felt the lack of in the extremely chilly Spring mornings and evenings).
The little terrace was a suntrap and, again, well furnished as well as private, enabling us to make the most of some wonderfully sunny lunchtimes.
Although the townhouse faces onto roads on both sides, the double glazing cuts out most noise and the shutters were effective, meaning we slept very well!
Jason was very friendly, helpful and informative and also kind to pick us up from the airport on arrival.
We are already talking about a return visit (or two)! …
Cezanne stunning views of castle ramparts
Finns in France
This is a review from a party of 5 from Finland (You now; the country where polarbears are walking on the streets and the snow only melts for two weeks in June).
We wisited Carcassonne in July 2013; two weeks of sunshine and 30 - 36 degrees celsius every day. The old city including the Cité is fantastic with it´s old buildings, narrow streets and small cafés and shops. The Cité (castle) is just above the old town and is full of interesting places, double walls, lots of towers and the citadel inside the Cité moves you back to the 12. century. If only the walls could tell their story.... Inside the Cité you will find souvernir shops, restaurants. Just walking around doing windowshopping, stopping here and there for drinks is a fantastic way to spend a day or two. In the modern city on the other side of the Aude river, you will find the usual shops that that belongs in a town like this. If you are interested you can take a cruise along Canal du Midi.
If you have rented a car I recommend a stop at the tourist office and getting
maps of the countryside. In a radius of 50 km you can find lots of small villages. Everyone with a history of their own. Be aware that some of the roads can be more than very narrow.
This is not our first stay i Carcassonne. Two years ago we spent a week here and also rented the same appartment; Cezanne. As the appartment has two bedrooms and a sofa that opens up to a fullsize bed, our party of 5 persons had plenty of room to move around in.
As the appartment has Wi-Fi our children spent late evenings and early mornings on the internet. They just have to stay in contact with their friends back home in Finland.
In the appartment you will find everything you need, even for a longer stay.
And Inga took care of us in a fantastic and familylike way. We e-mailed each other for almost a year before our trip, asking about this and that and we always received fast answers. As we arrived on a sunday she offered to supply us whith some basics supplies so we should not need to go hungry. Even when I made some changes to our flight back home Inga printed our new bording cards and brought them to us. I can´t see how service can get any better than this.
This year we took part in the celebration of Bastille day on the 14 of July (that´s the french independence day). And watching the fireworks from our appartment windows was something awesome.
We recommend Carcassonne to everyone interested in history, because this place is full of it. And staying in this appartment on Rue de la Gaffe just lets you breathe the air of history. …
Monet magnificent views of castle ramparts
We visited Carcassone staying at Cite View (Monet) in September 2016, we had an amazing break. Not only was the view of the citadel from the apartment fantastic, the facilities and welcome we received were excellent and just what you need to make your break complete.
We visited the local shop for fresh produce each morning and were always greeted with a smile.
Being able to relax and enjoy our time together, visiting the old and new city and taking a trip along the canal was a nice tourist aspect, knowing we could return to a little haven was the best part of our trip and that's why we are heading back this year and hopefully seeing more of the region.
I can highly recommend staying at Cite View for a break away and in the knowledge that Inga and Mick are close at hand, if needed. …

So close to the castle...
A last minute trip away for me and my wife. We picked this flat because we didn't want stairs due to my wife's handicap but wanted to be close to the Cite.
Inga picked us up from the station and took us to the apartment where she ran though all the facilities.
I can recommend the Ostal restaurant in the Cite for a vine charcoal grilled steak. …
