“Amazing house, everything you need!”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed here for two weeks at the end of July, beginning of August during the Festival De Carcassonne. The house is in a stunning location with the garden looking up at the castle ramparts, and steps up to the castle just at the end of the street which means a 5/10 minute walk depending how fit you are (amazing how much easier they are at the end of the 2 weeks!). Grandparents did find them these steps too steep/uneven though and drove around to the Narbonne gate. During the festival it was nice to sit in the garden and listen to the concerts. The pool was lovely and cleaned twice weekly. The house had everything we needed for two 11 yr olds(10 minute drive) was a favourite trip out to visit the Aqua Parc, we visited to a few times during our stay, brilliant fun for the kids. You couldn't ask for more, we would definitely return!

“Superb house and location”
Reviewed 5 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The house, location and amenities are all as described by the owner.

There is not much I can add to the enthusiastic reviews submitted by previous guests. The house is a sensitively renovated 17th century building of great character, providing extremely spacious, comfortable and convenient accommodation for guests. The wi-fi service was excellent, and the owner has clearly put a great deal of thought into the.entertainment and household equipment provided. You will find everything you need in the kitchen, down to dishwasher tablets and charcoal for the grill. The beds and bed linen were excellent and the entire house was spotlessly clean. Air conditioning is provided in the two palatial top-floor bedrooms. The outdoor amenities are all one could wish for and the view of La Cite spectacular. Despite being so close both to the historic Cite and the lower town, the house is remarkably quiet and peaceful. We really enjoyed the wines kindly provided by the owner and bought some cases to take home with us from the wine merchant next-door.

Both the owner and the local agent, Nicola, were easy to contact and helpful. The security deposit was returned quickly.

Having rented holiday homes on the continent for more years than I care to remember, I can safely say that La Maison du Chateau is the best ever.

“Perfect house in perfect location”
Reviewed 31 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Maison du Chateau, Carcassonne, is every bit as good as it appears in the photos in a wonderful very quiet central location between La Cité and La Bastide. The house is within a stone's throw of many local shops and cafés. Particularly good is Le Jardin d'Eté restaurant near the end of the Vieux Pont which has a splendid garden behind it for outdoor eating. Maison du Chateau is close the minor branch of the RIver Aude where you can wander on shady riverside walks upstream beside dramatic weirs and rapids. Walk upstream to the first road bridge and back down the other side of the main branch of the Aude.

The house is very spacious as you can see in the photos with three French windows on the ground floor opening into the garden. The beds are very comfortable and the bed linen immaculate. Wonderfully scented Le Petit Marseillais liquid soap made from olive oil is on every sink and basin in the house making it a fantastic sensory experience simply to wash your hands! There is plenty comfortable garden furniture and a pool which is kept immaculate by twice weekly visits from a husband and wife pool maintenance team. Spare sets of house keys are provided so no-one is without the means of access. In a marvelously equipped and spacious kitchen there is room for a team of guests to work in unison to create meals from the great local produce.

Buy your meat, fish and cheese in Les Halles close to Place Carnot. If you miss the outdoor fruit and vegetable market in the morning at Place Carnot there is a marvellous green grocers at the end of Rue Verdun. There is a small Carrefour supermarket on Place Carnot, too, which is surprisingly well stocked, and a branch of Monoprix nearby. If your shopping is heavy you can get a taxi back home from the rank near the railway station.

Six complementary bottles of wine are supplied at your host's expense by the next door neighbour who is also a wine merchant.

Within a few yards at the back of the house there are three pedestrian routes up to La Cité which is particularly charming at night. Go on to the Vieux Pont to view La Cité from a distance at night with all its floodlit fortifications and towers and then compare it with the the ancient drawing reproduced in the dining room of the house.

There is absolutely nothing negative to report concerning this house, the owner or his conscientious and helpful agent, Nicola Harrington.

HIGHLY recommended!

“Five Star Accommodation in Magical Medieval Town”
Reviewed 26 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Review of Carcassonne property
My immediate and extended family, travelling from the UK and America, chose this property for our reunion, and could not have enjoyed our stay more! This is an amazing 3-floor apartment which truly sits in the shadow of the magnificent ramparts of Carcassonne. It is a wonderful accommodation, plenty of room, tastefully decorated, well equipped, beautifully laid out with plenty of room for our 10-person party. We were off-season visitors, and were thrilled with the coziness of the place - a combination of central heating and very efficient wood stoves in the living room and dining/kitchen areas kept us toasty warm! For the summer visitors, there is a wonderful backyard area with a pool and outdoor seating/eating arrangements. Carcassonne is a memorable destination - lots to see and do, and the restaurants are excellent! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would certainly love to return. Thanks, Ashley and team!!

“Fantastic property and location...”
Reviewed 12 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Eight of us (two families, 4 children aged 9 - 17) had a fantastic week at Maison du Chateau. The location is stunning. The garden overlooks the ramparts which are floodlit by night, allowing you to sit on the terrasse with a glass of wine and breathe in the history! As we were there during the Carcassonne festival, we enjoyed listening to the nightly concerts from the terrasse, including Sting performing a string of Police numbers.

We managed without a car for the week and there was plenty to fill our time. We flew into Carcassonne airport - a short taxi drive from the house. A 10 minute walk gets you into the centre of the castle which is packed with restaurants, the Chateau Comtal and jousting. A 1/2 hour walk through the new town gets you to the Canal du Midi where you can get boat trips (this was ok but not amazing).

The house itself is of a high standard - a pleasure to stay in. The garden (overlooking the castle) has different sitting areas with lovely furniture (no plastic loungers!). We all enjoyed the pool, which is a good size considering the town location.

Inside was fantastic, loads of space, really clean and everything was great quality. A small point, but as we didn't have a car, it was great to have cleaning products, toiletries and loo rolls for the week.

The case of wine on arrival (and a wine merchant next door!!) was a great bonus, as were the slippers and robes.

Before arrival, booking was easy - the owners came back with answers to our questions very quickly.

We've rented quite a few holiday homes in France, but our experience at Maison du Chateau was by far the best - in terms of quality of house, location and amenities.
