Huge luxury House With Garden, Aircon and private heated Pool By Castle

Family-friendly vacation home in Carcassonne with water park
* superbly renovated and extremely spacious 4 bedroom property in a world class location, nestled at the very foot of Carcassonne castle.
* heated private pool
* Stunning views of castle day and night
* Fully air-conditioned.
* Garage
* three minutes walk via a secret stairway to the Port D'Aude entrance to the castle.


All bedrooms are luxurious appointed with generous en-suite facilities (3 have minimalist wet-rooms), the large lounge has a huge L-shaped contemporary sofa and 55 inch TV with blu-ray player and powerful hifi giving amazing home cinema experience. The large kitchen, and adjoining dining area, is extremely well equipped and offers every modern convenience.

The house extends over three floors. The ground floor has a garage and entrance hall at the front, a huge dining room with exposed stone walls and adjacent kitchen to the rear, both of which open onto the garden and pool. The first floor has a large living room at the rear, again with exposed stone walls and access to a covered roof terrace with views of the castle, then two double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms at the front of the house. The top floor has two very large bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, the rear one of which has unrivalled views of the castle.

All our guests have thoroughly enjoyed staying in the house, please take a read of our reviews which have been excellent! For dining at the house there is the elegant indoor dining room with wood-burning stove, and outdoor area with French shingle and pretty olive trees, or the large balcony with breathtaking views of the Castle towering above.

The house also has 2 powerful wood-burning stoves, which allows guests to stay any time of year, with many of our winter guests combining a cultural trip to historic Carcassonne with skiing in the nearby Pyrenees mountains.

The house and gardens boast a host of unique features including an outstanding internal medieval well (in the kitchen itself) and stone walls dating from the Romans which run along the back of the garden.

The nearby castle plays host to year-round festivals and world-class live music (this summer's festivals included concerts by Elton John, The Arctic Monkeys etc). Outside of the historic city, the Bastide St Louis -- a grid of shops, historic buildings, and the Place Carnot marketplace, with its Saturday market and outdoor cafes -- is just a short walk across the beautiful Pont Vieux.

Fantastic scenery nearby with swimming lake on edge of town and Mediterranean beaches 45 minutes drive away. The French countywide around Carcassonne is superb, with rolling hills, historic hilltop villages with historic churches and abbeys.

This is an ideal location for an extremely relaxing family holiday. In addition, Carcasssonne offers a huge variety of day trips within 30 minutes drive, such as the wonderful villages of Mirepoix, Minerve and Lagrasse which are internationally acclaimed for their history and beauty.

The house is easily spacious enough to accommodate two families, with two super-King beds and two double beds, and space in the lounge for extra people to sleep on the sofa bed. There are also extra occasional beds available.

The local streets are the setting for the current Channel 4 series Labyrinth, based on the celebrated novel by Kate Mosse.

Special note: secure bookings via the website. Half the rent is due up front to secure a booking and the other hal are fully inclusive of all linen, towels and local taxes. Higher price for Bastille Day week in Carcassonne, with incredible world-renowned fireworks display over the Castle. PLEASE NOTE - The house is in a peaceful residential area and so is not suitable for loud groups and so noise should be kept to a minimum in the garden after 11pm please!

5/5 Excellent

Great place to stay and awesome location.
Really beautiful old property that is well located and stocked with everything. We really had a great time in this vacation rental.

5/5 Excellent

Best spot to enjoy the beauty of Carcassonne
This is a special property. When a large medieval castle is the backdrop to your vacation, the tone is set. We were breath taken everyday. The house is large, comfortable. and has all the amenities you could want. We walked up to the castle for ice-cream at night and walked to the Place Carnot for dinner or to shop. There are hundreds of restaurants around. We were surprised that Carcassonne is so big. Communication with Ashley was smooth.

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic home with stunning view
Well equipped kitchen with multiple dining areas indoor and outdoor. Great pool and stunning view of the castle from the garden. Location is super.

5/5 Excellent

Gorgeous property, fantastic location
Our family (6 adults and 1 young child) absolutely loved staying in this house - it is ideally situated for an easy walk into either the old city or the new. The house itself is comfortable, spacious and well stocked. The only thing I would note is that there are lots of steps (both inside and outside) that meant that our 14 month old had to be very closely tailed the entire time as he bombed around exploring ;) The garden is tiered, and gravelled, so he couldn't easily play outside as much as we would have liked. The only other point to note is that only the two master bedrooms have air con, so the first floor rooms are very hot in the summer - our thermometer put them at 28 degrees at night. Fans are provided, but again it's just worth noting for small children. These are absolutely not criticisms of the house itself, just observations for others who may also be travelling with very active, independent young children. Otherwise - the bedrooms are lovely, the social spaces are fantastic (with so many options we never felt on top of one another), and the garden and pool are ideal. The house is large, clean and, overall, very good value – we would recommend it to anyone!

5/5 Excellent

Loved it !
As with the other reviews of this property, it really is a great place to stay. Very magical. Everything is well organised and it is very well serviced with all sorts of extras. You will not be disappointed.
