Just returned from 4 night stay in Chez George in Carcasson.Beautiful large spacious appartment with everything you possibly could need for your stay. Thank you it makes such a difference when you have the necessities after travelling.Location was excellent right on square,lovely bakery and supermarket and train station right beside us.To Philip who met us and Rory for all the information thank you.To Mairead and Aileen for recommendations thank you.A fabulous stay enjoyed by all.I would truly recommended Chez George.
Lovely apartment in a great location. We really enjoyed being in the centre of Carcassonne. Less than a minute from the fruit and veg market and 2 from the undercover market where we bought monkfish and encornet. All the restaurants we tried were good and Carcassone has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Bar Felix for breakfast or set lunch and La Cathare were very good with friendly staff. Advice and recommendations in the visitors book and folder were really useful.
The bar below was a great place to shelter from a thunderstorm. Friendly staff and customers with lots of character. Never open very late so no problem with noise.
The Cite and castle were a short and pretty walk from the apartment. Lots of appealing restaurants and bars on the way. We didn't hire a car and walked everywhere and found plenty to see and do. We still have places to see in Carcassonne so look forward to visiting again and hopefully staying in Chez George if it is available.
From beginning to end i have only positive things to say about this accommodation. The booking process was excellent, I had excellent communication and Rory instantly answered my questions and confirmed the booking. We were met by Philip ( another Aussie) as we arrived at the apartment and he explained everything as we were shown through. We took him up on his tips regarding parking of our car. That was one of our questions in the beginning. It worked out very cheap and no problems at all, do not be worried if you have a car. We even drove right up to the door the morning we left and put our luggage in the car. There is an excellent folder with thorough notes and suggestions for the stay.
I totally agree with all the reviews about this apartment, it is in a perfect location, is clean and fresh and well equipped as well as being HUGE. It is old and in need of a little bit of sprucing up but i looked at it as "French Charm and Ambience!" The linen and bedding was more than adequate but i have to say the towels were a little worn and hard but that is a personal thing i guess. The kitchen was well equipped and everything worked well. A word of warning.....and i did question Rory about this which he did explain. The web site says 2 bathrooms which in my mind means 2 showers 2 toilets. As we were two couples I booked the apartment thinking that would be ok. However ....one bathroom has a shower and bath. The second bathroom has a toilet and basin. It would be the only negative i would say about this place, but it did work out ok, we just had to be aware. Two of us showered at night and two in the morning.
We were above the main street and there was a Bar underneath. The first night we were there was Irish Jamming night and the music was fantastic. It did continue after we went to bed but was not an issue as the bedrooms are at the back of the apartment and we were not bothered. It was wonderful to be able to walk out your front door and be in the middle of shops restaurants and a supermarket. the Canal du Midi is at pone end of the street and the town square and market at the other. The castle is a fifteen mins walk! Perfect location! I would go back in a heartbeat and could live there for an extended period. Thanks Rory and Philip
Apartment has everything that you need, a real home from home. Super location plenty top quality restaurants. Comunication's with Rory and Philip are superb making you feel welcome and at ease. Medieval City a must, canal bike ride really enjoyable. Alovely part of the world and well worth a visit. If going to Carcassonne look no further than this apartment. Great value for money and super location.
Our second time at this wonderfully spacious apartment. Although we are only a couple there is no doubt that this apartment would accommodate six people very comfortably, unlike many advertised where you would be falling over each other. Rooms are vast and should be cool in summer as the building is an old one with thick stone walls and many large opening windows. Bedrooms are very quiet at night.
Many restaurants, bars and shops within easy walking distance as well as the markets held in the Place Carnot which are well worth a visit. The medieval cite is only a leisurely 20 minute walk away. I would be hard to find a better placed apartment in Carcassonne
