We spent two nights in La Posada and were so impressed by our wonderful welcome from Enrique. A brilliant parking spot, help with luggage, refreshing glass of sangria while he told us about the history of what was the most stunning mediaeval city we have ever visited. The Chevaliers bedroom had a fantastic view of the city, particularly at night...

Our stay was enhanced by the care and attention that Lola & Enrique lavish on their guests.

Enrique and Lola are the best hosts! Great place, great advice on sightseeing, eating and everything else about visiting Carcassone. Even recommended a restaurant in Barcelona that was terrific. If you are visiting Carcassone you owe it to your self to stay here.

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
