Our little one bedroom house is perfect for two. Walking distance to the city, it provides a great base to visit Carcassonne and many other Cathar castles. It's has a private shower room and kitchen, as well as access to our garden.
We provide bedsheets, towels, coffee and tea facilities, as well as the basic for the kitchen (salt pepper vinegar and olive oil), and many more details :)

The space

Our one bedroom apartment is excellently located near by the Carcassonne city, near by a public paying carpark. It also belong to the naïf painter artist Marie Saleun, whom has her art work shop next door.
This little place is cosy and well decorated, simple yet cosy.

Guest access

Guest have access through Marie's main access, however they have total privacy as the flat's door has its own lock.
The flat is composed of one bedroom, a bathroom, and a little kitchen. Guest can also enjoy some of the garden to enjoy their food or just take it easy.

Interaction with guests

Marie Saleun, the naïf artist living at the end of the garden, is very present as she lives in the house at the end of the garden and spends most of her time working at her art workshop next door, her garden or just decorating her house.

Other things to note

Well first thing first: you have to visit Carcassonne. Marie will tell you all about the places of interest in The city, including the best places to eat!

A unique little apartment for a short stay. Marie was friendly and welcoming. The accommodation was as pictured. We enjoyed sitting out on the terrace in the evenings (remember your insect repellent if you plan to do this).

We have had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at the studio in Carcassonne. It is a lovely space and a really good location to explore the city. There was a tranquil garden for relaxing and a parking space which were very welcome additions. Marie was a perfect host, really informative & interesting to talk with and we enjoyed seeing all of her creative artwork. We would definitely recommend staying here and would like to thank Marie and Chéri for making us feel so welcome :)

We stayed 4 nights in Marie's studio and it was lovely. It is simple but has exactly what you need (kitchen, bathroom and bed) but with the added creative touch of Marie's wonderful art and conversation. You stay in the front end of the house, whereas Marie lives at the back of the garden. We enjoyed relaxing in the garden, looking for the tortoise (!) and reading and the stay was very quiet and calm. The location for the cité is also perfect as it is a few roads away and Marie recommended us some amazing restaurants that are a stones throw away. Wholeheartedly recommended and we look forward to seeing where the story of the room goes next!

You could not find a more unique and interesting place to stay when visiting Carcassonne. Marie is the perfect host and is full of suggestions and ideas to make your visit as perfect as possible. The garden area is a beautiful oasis. We would recommend staying here without hesitation.

The house, location and host Marie were perfect for our trip to Carcassonne. The studio has everything you need including wifi. It's a short walk into both the Old and New city. Marie is a fabulous host and her garden and artwork are magical!!

Wonderful stay! This treasure is exactly what airbnb is all about. The location could not be better and the room was tidy and clean. This is much better than a hotel as it was quirky, different and Marie made us feel at home. The garden is delightful and private. Unlike most generic places- very much recommended. Thank you Marie! xxx

Beautiful quirky studio and garden; perfectly located in the shadow of the Cite walls and by the old bridge to the new town. Everything was an easy walk away. Marie was so welcoming and provided us with excellent recommendations for eating out and buying groceries, which helped us make the most of our two day trip. Would happily stay here again.

Hi Stuart, Thank you for your lovely note about Marie's place. She will appreciate. I'll go at the end of the month and check on the place to improve the place :) Take care, Isa.

Hi there,
We're Europeans :) Daddy is English, Mumy is French, and the kiddos were born in Barcelona. BTW, they speak more language than we do... 4 in total! We live in Barcelona, and we love it.
As a family we like sporty holidays, and sometimes do cultural short break.
We also manage AirBnB as host. The chalet in the Pyrenees is ours, and the studio in Carcassonne belongs to my godmother, Marie. She is the host of the Carcassonne's place, however I manage the AirBnB for her as she isn't very tech savvy ;) But she is a wonderful artist!
Chat soon!
