Great value in a very unique property.
"Let me start by saying that I have stayed in approximately 35 vacation rental properties in the last 10 years in the USA, Spain, Portugal, France and the UK. To paraphrase Forrest Gump, apartment rentals "are like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get." There are often surprises some good, and some not so good. This one had a lot of good surprise. First, it has a wonderful shower; good water pressure, ample room, and that most welcome of bathroom amenities for Americans, a shower curtain to keep the water in the shower. It also has the absolute BEST laundry equipment in any rental that I have ever seen. The equipment was easy to use and the dryer was a real dryer, not a wire rack. The Cathar Cottage is very roomy. My wife and I traveled alone but if you have a couple of kids (age 6 and up) they would absolutely love this place. It has an third level for the kids to sleep in that kids will love. Pennautier is a very small village but it is a short drive to Carcassonne. There are also great day trips you can make such as Minerve and Lastours. Lastours is a super place to see and only about 30 minutes away. You can hike up to 4 sets of castle ruins and it isn't that strenuous a hike (or I wouldn't have done it). Great views of the countryside. If you drive in this village I suggest that you do not drive your car down the street that the apartment is on. The bottom of the street narrows drastically. Just park on the main street above the apartment and wheel your luggage down the hill about 50 meters. Hey, nothing's perfect. Making the arrangements was very easy and the owners were super nice and prompt with all communication. I would highly recommend this apartment."

"This is an amazing apartment and when I remember my stay there I smile. I’ve stayed in several apartments in the Montmartre area over the past few years and even though this one was a bit more expensive, it was very much worth it. The location is literally perfect; almost in the middle of Abbesses and Sacre Coeur. The building that the apartment is situated in is beautiful, clean and feels safe and secure. The apartment itself is very homely and comfortable; the good quality bedding and towels provided is appreciated and the beds (including the living room pull out) are very comfortable. I stayed in April, so I don’t know how hot it would be in the summer (no air con), but there would be good ‘through air’ with the back and front room windows and doors open. In summary, the apartment felt authentic and special. If you want to pretend to live in Montmartre for a while, this is the place to do it."
