In the heart of old Narbonne, 300 m from 12th C. cathedral, and the restaurants and bars along the quays of the Canal de la Robine, a lovely self-contained one-bedroom apartment (45 sq. m) in quiet courtyard, close to everything. Five mins to station, two bicycles included. Ideal for a couple and one child - or two kids with a little rearranging. Separate kitchen & bathroom.
We are an Australian-English couple and we speak English and French. This is one of two apartments we have available to rent on the same courtyard (ask us about renting both).
Studio Balcon is a pretty, sun-filled one-bedroom apartment on the first floor, with its own balcony, in the old part of Narbonne. The historic centre of town goes back 2000 years, but the apartment is fully modernised. You are close to everything you need and we provide access to two bicycles. Arrive by train, and we are five minutes walk from the station.
The main house was built in 1775, and this apartment is part of the same complex, facing onto the beautiful courtyard, with its cooling palm tree in the middle. The street is already quiet, but the Balcon apartment is back from the street frontage so you hear very little noise during the night.
Studio Balcon has one large and comfortable double bed (actually two king-size singles joined) and another sofa bed which can be used for a child, in the separate entrance room. All the beds are very comfortable Scandinavian-sized singles that fit together, providing great flexibility. The main bedroom has plenty of room for another single bed, if a couple has a small child, or two kids could share the smaller entry foyer room - as you wish.
Studio Balcon was freshly painted in 2014. It has a small kitchen with two hot plates, but no oven. Everything else is there: microwave, full-sized fridge, coffee-maker, pots and pans and plates etc. Each room has s small electric heater for the colder months, and there is an electric fan in the main bedroom. There is a TV with TNT access box, providing all the free-to-air French channels and a couple of English ones. You have access to our laundry downstairs.
We spend only part of the year here, so we may not be here in the winter months. If you come between late April and October, we will be happy to welcome you ourselves. Otherwise we have our house manager meet our guests. We are happy to help you plan your stay, and point you towards the delights of the region - which are many.
Everything you will need is within walking distance, and you have bikes if you wish to go further. There is also a local bus service, and the extensive French rail network is five minutes away.
We do not provide parking. See the arrival instructions for details about where to park.

As little or as much as they wish, if we are here.
The apartment is non-smoking. Our wifi extends to the apartment. We have neighbours within the building so we ask you to behave as if you lived here. Respect others and refrain from late night parties, please.
