Narbonne apartment description
A beautiful and spacious 92 sq. meter (1,000 sq. ft.) second floor two bedroom apartment, overlooking the tree lined canal La Robine, in the pretty city of Narbonne. Boutiques, cafés, bars and restaurants are within a five to ten minute walk and just a few minutes more will take you to the fabulous historic buildings or the indoor gourmet market. Many of the city's streets and bridges are laden with floral baskets welcoming visitors to smell the flowers and enjoy its relaxed pace. Just a minute's walk away is a pretty park with a boules pitch and wonderful little playground at one end; and a canal view and little stream at the other - a peaceful spot to lie in the sun or under the shade of the trees. Narbonne is perfectly situated for a beautiful 15 minute drive to the beach or heading off further a field to explore the historic sites of the region such as Carcassonne, Minerve, Sete, Collioure, Lagrasse and the wine regions of Corbieres and Minervois. Although car rental is recommended, the train station is within walking distance and there are buses to the coast. Travel light to this well equipped apartment which has everything down to an iron, books, CDs and DVDs. WIFI service is also now available.
The open plan dining and living room has lovely views of the boats on the tree-lined canal, the top of the medieval cathedral and terracotta tiled townhouse rooftops. Renovated and furnished in 2005, the apartment has still retained its original features such as wooden beams, doors and traditional shutters on long windows. There are dining table and chairs as well as a comfortable seating area with TV, DVD, Radio/CD/MP3 player. The kitchen is large and has a traditional feel though it has all modern appliances including dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine, electric convection oven, microwave and both gas and electric stove top. The Juliette Balcony is perfect for morning coffee or afternoon tea. The master bedroom has a Queen-size bed, fitted wardrobe and lovely views of the canal and a leafy courtyard. The second bedroom has twin beds and fitted wardrobe. The bathroom has a shower, bidet, large sink and heated towel rack with a separate washroom. Electric fans are available for summer and there is modern central heating for winter. There is plenty of free parking outside the apartment.

What a lovely apartment, it was a perfect place for us to stay! The pictures are very accurate, but it seems even nicer when you are there. It is very quiet at night and seems very safe. We were greeted very kindly by Mike and a nice bottle of wine too. The canal was a great treat. The boys would skip rocks everyday on our walks along it. We rented bicycles and cycled all along it. The market is a wonderful experience and we had great fun getting our groceries there. We used the city buses all the time and went to the beach, the sports complex and the big shopping center too. We would definitely return to Narbonne and would love to stay here. Also the owners were so helpful as we are completely new to travel in Europe and have very little French language skills. We loved it!

My family and I stayed at La Robine earlier this year. What a wonderful little apartment. I enjoyed the beautiful view of the canal. Every morning, we all sat int he kitchen enjoying coffee, looking at the canal. The place has wonderful energy, and was very nicely decorated. We enjoyed the proximity to the center town. We were welcomed by a very nice English gentleman who showed us around and made us familiar with the apartment and its surrounding. We shall return for sure.

This spacious and light apartment is perfect for 3-4 people. It is well-laid out and comfortable but also attractive and good for entertaining. The kitchen is well-appointed, and the small balcony off the kitchen, even in March, could be opened to get some fresh air at breakfast. David was very helpful in answering my questions and even called ahead of time to meet me by phone. I would recommend the restaurant Le Petit Comptoir which is not far from the apartment and fabulous. But we ate a several other restaurants in town and enjoyed them all. Overall I would definitely recommend both Narbonne as a place to visit and this apartment as the place to stay!
