After a small laundry room you come to a large vestibule equipped as a comfortable library. Beyond the library is a large living room that leads directly onto the large rooftop terrace. It is magic to sit there in the evening, an oasis of tranquility above the streets. The terrace looks over the canal tile roof tops of the bastide and the spires of the Cathedrale Saint-Michel, yet is private.

At the east end of the apartment are the three bedrooms and the two bathrooms. There is a bath, a power shower and great wardrobe space. All the windows are double glazed. There is air conditioning and electrically controlled blinds and shutters. The whole apartment is very light and well equipped. It also looks onto the terrace.

There are child gates on the stairs.

In the winter the people of Carcassonne regularly take to the nearby slopes and historical, archaeological and wine destinations are within easy reach. Toulouse and Barcelona are also popular destinations. Watersports, bird watching, hiking and Orchids are all nearby.

There is a choice of parking nearby:

  • On-street parking within bastide. Some (ever decreasing) free, some metered
  • The apartment is less than five minutes walk away from the Dôme just outside the Bastide where there is free off-street parking available.
  • The apartment is less than five minutes away from the boulevard Barbès where there is more parking available. It costs a few Euros per day with a pay and display system (free between six in the evening and 9am and weekends).
  • There are two nearby paying underground car parks (boulevard Barbès and the Square Gambetta)

The boulevard that surrounds the Bastide is one-way (sens unique) - anticlockwise. The part of the Boulevard most convenient for the penthouse is on the Boulevard Barbès, just on the left after Place General de Gaul and just before the Dôme, where the Boulevard turns to the left and becomes Boulevard Camille Pelleton. You will have a very good idea of scale and layout by entering the apartment address (37 rue Aimé Ramond, 11000, Carcassonne) on
