About

NOTE: ALL LINENS ARE PROVIDED. The apartment is available for short- and long-term rentals in the Fall of 2019 and beyond. 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 magnificent Gothic 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. Six minutes in yet another direction takes you to the Place de la Révolution/Léon Blum, with a park and more restaurants, and finally the main post office, newspaper shop and several banks are located four minutes away in the final direction. The apartment is essentially one very large space, with enormous volume (4-metre-high ceilings). Wooden stairs lead to the sleeping loft with its extremely comfortable 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 deep shelves and plenty of space for hanging clothes. Back downstairs to the main living area, the very large, impeccably clean bathroom contains a window, a radiator, a hair-dryer, and several towel racks, as well as shelves and a cabinet full of luxury towels. And of course there is a sink (quite large), a toilet, a bidet, and a newly remodeled shower (90 cm2). The apartment boasts a "good cook's kitchen," with every cooking implement you could want -- pots and casseroles of all sizes, good quality knives, and even a tagine and a mandoline. A shopping "caddie" (trolley) 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. The washing machine and separate dryer are German-made and -- while not large by North American standards -- are the biggest available for sale in France.
