About the Owner
I left Ireland with just a suitcase and a vague dream of the perfect life in France 10 years ago and never got any further than my first stop, the beautiful Carcassonne.
In the meantime, I have picked up a bit more baggage in the form of my husband and three-year-old son, an Irish pub business ( and, since January 2015, Maison Fortunat, our family's new holiday rental business.
Maison Fortunat will open its doors at the end of May 2015 after a little bit of redecoration, hence the lack of property photos at the moment.
We will keep you updated as the redecoration progresses and look forward to welcoming you to Carcassonne, a town we know very well.
Year property purchased: 2015
Why this location?
After 10 years living in Carcassone and surrounds, we know it is the town for us. It proximity to beaches and ski resorts, big cities (Montpellier, Toulouse, Barcelona, Andorra...) and quaint French villages (Lagrasse, Minerve...) make it the ideal spring board from which to explore the region. And, there is plenty to do in Carcassonne itself, with its ancient walled town and castle, its lake and canal amenities, and its myriad boutique shops.
What are the unique benefits of the property?
The house is a walled villa with a large swimming pool. Its charm lies in its location, right in Carcassonne town itself, within view of the castle's turrets and only 15-20 mins walk or a short hop on a bus to the town centre. It is a large house which allows us to create a family home and a separate business on the same property. So we will be present to help you with any enquiries during your stay, but will remain well out of sight should you prefer your privacy.
