Beautiful apartment in historic residence in the heart of Roman Languedoc
NOTE: The apartment is available for short- or long-term rentals starting mid-October 2013.
Located in 'centre ville' of beautiful Narbonne, the ancient capital of Occitania (modern-day Provence, Languedoc, and Aquitaine), this apartment is appreciated by its guests, many of whom return year after year to take advantage of the 'sunny south' while enjoying all modern comforts. Only 20 minutes to the beautiful beaches of Gruissan and Narbonne Plage, and close by a number of mythic Cathar castles, the city of Narbonne itself offers plenty of entertainment year-round. From its Michelin-starred restaurant to its genuine Italian pizzarias, and especially its renowned "Halles" (covered market), open every day of the year, it's a gourmand's paradise!
The apartment could not be more central: two minutes by foot in one direction, and you are at the Cathedral St. Just, next to the Place de l'Hotel de Ville (town square). Two minutes in the other direction, and you'll find yourself at the Canal de la Robine, a tributary of the Canal du Midi, which flows through the heart of the city, bordered on each bank with restaurants and bars à vin. Four minutes in yet another direction takes you to the Place de la Révolution/Léon Blum, with a park and more restaurants.
The apartment is essentially one very large space, with enormous volume (4-metre-high ceilings). Wooden stairs lead to the sleeping loft with its very large bed (180 cm, extra-large king size). The loft has two windows giving onto the street, two bedside tables, a low table, an armchair, and a ceiling fan, as well as a large closet with shelves and plenty of space for hanging clothes.
The very large, impeccably clean bathroom has a window, a radiator, a hair-dryer, and several towel racks, as well as shelves and a brand-new cabinet. And of course there is a sink (quite large), a toilet, a bidet, and a brand-new shower (90 cm2) with two sources of water: handheld and overhead.
The apartment boasts a "good cook's kitchen", with every cooking implement you could want. A shopping cart is at your disposal to help you bring back delicacies from "Les Halles", just a few minutes across the canal by foot, or from Monoprix, just steps away at the Place de l'Hotel de Ville. The newly-installed air-conditioning/ heating unit is a dream: quiet and incredibly efficient.
