Holiday rentals and lettings in Carcassonne

Stay inside or outside the walls?

That is the most common question, right? Accommodations inside or nearby the walls are a unique experience. A few yards from your doorstep, La Cité’s main access is the perfect spot to wander the streets in the early morning when tourists are still making their way up for the day. An area with lots of cafés and little restaurants close to the cute little shops. If that is too busy, and want to stay away from the medieval part, modern lettings and self-catering accommodations can be found in the city centre, where all the activity happens around the main square or by the river.

Spectacular locations with great views

Great holiday rentals facing the ramparts of the old city. Enjoy morning views of the walls from your terrace and through the large windows. Stay in decorated properties with the most exclusive fine art and antiques and some others with a more contemporary style. Chic holiday rentals and designer decor with lovely gardens to enjoy during spring or summer time and have a nice BBQ washed down with a nice AOC Languedoc wine.

Believe it or not, there are 200 residents within the walls who experience it every night. What a privilege!

Peaceful mornings around the walls to enjoy breakfast is an option but the main city has also a main square plenty of delicious cafés to sample a fantastic croissant with the best coffee. Lunch and dinner is the time to enjoy exquisite Michelin-standard restaurants like La Barbacane or A Quatre Temps brasserie with creative cuisine in a privileged setting and featuring the best local wines the sommelier will recommend you.
