We had a great 2 nights staying at La Posada. Enrique went out of his way to help us with restaurant recommendations and also things to do during our stay. We would have easily given this place a top star rating anyway but the fact that at breakfast one morning Enrique produced my blackberry (which I must have absentmindedly left... More

My husband and I spent here two amazing days thanks to Enrique and Lola, their advices and the unrivalled hospitality of their house. Extremely close to the city walls (less than 2 minutes walk), this amazing posada is nested just outside the old city walls and offers unrivalled views of the walls at night. Enrique and Lola are the best.... More

We spent 4 nights at La Posada recently and had a very pleasant stay indeed. The location is excellent, just outside the main medieval castle with free parking right outside, and a beautiful terrace with superb views and a very relaxing atmosphere.

You may think previous reviews are too good to be true. They are actually completely accurate and almost do justice to the exceptional holiday experience that Lola and Enrique have fashioned out of the only converted bakery to come complete with stained glass window.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You will find this hidden gem tucked away in the picturesque quarter known as La Barbacane and it is here that visitors from all around the world choose to stay in the heart of Cathar country. Built on the site of the former barbican of the medieval City and at the very foot of the ramparts, both the City and the Bastide Saint Louis are easily accessible on foot. At the Posada del Castillo B&B , we are in a classified historical monuments' area so, although we do not have a swimming pool, we do have Carcassonne's Lake Cavayere 5 minutes away as well as the Mediterranean, mountain lakes, rivers and streams in close proximity. Although, being in a town and next to the Chapel of Saint Gimer, we do not have large grounds or parklands, we do have a cosy terrace and a private garden which offer our guests a truly unique view of the Cite. Indeed, the medieval walls, the Porte d'Aude and the Chateau Comtal are less than 100m away. It is the Porte d'Aude which evokes Carcassone world wide and it is this gate which is featured on all of the postcards and used as a backdrop in films and historical productions. ... more   less
