L'Echappee Belle Chambres d'Hotes
Ranked #28 of 53 Carcassonne B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 July 2015

We had a wonderful time here with Loulou and Jackie! Our room (the small double) was exactly what we wanted & the garden entrance was perfect for hanging out in the evening! Wish I could have stowed Loulou away in my luggage... I will be recommending this B&B to everyone.

Room Tip: Get the small double room for the garden patio

My partner and I stayed at L'Echappee Belle for three nights last week and we can't speak highly enough of this B & B and its wonderful hosts. Jacqui and Jean-Louis went out if their way to make us feel welcome in their home. The rooms are well appointed, the beds comfortable and the breakfast superb with delicious pastries and bread delivered fresh every morning. Located inside the walls of La Cité our room on the second floor afforded views of the Basilica. While all of the above was superb, one of the highlights of our stay was poodle Loulou and cat Sassy who greeted us each morning at breakfast and when we returned home each evening. Would definitely stay again.

My husband and I stayed for one night in this charming B&B during Winter to explore Carcassone. Very glad we did! Lovely, quiet, cosy establishment (only 4 rooms I believe?) with friendly owners speaking French & English which was much appreciated. As stated on the listing the room is not huge but size more than adequate for our stay and the bathroom was a very good size for a traditional lodging. Immaculately clean and the decor is lovely cottage chic with comfy bed & bedding. Great heating (radiator & reverse cycle heating!) for the cold weather, kettle, tea/coffee and small fridge provided which we didn't have a chance to use!
Nice breakfast including cereals, yogurts, fresh pastries, bread & condiments & tea/coffee/orange juice was just perfect for us and we had some great chats with the owner Jackie and became aquainted with her adorable little poodle Loulou!
Overall a great stay, definitely recommend this great little B&B in the heart of the old village which was so homely! Thanks so much Jackie & Jean-Louis!

Room Tip: Would recommend the room we had; Room 2 on the first floor, it had lovely views of the neighbouring...

We could only stay for two nights and wanted it to be so much longer. Jacqui and Jean-Louis are fantastic hosts, and the spacious room had the feel of an apartment. The hotel is right in the heart of Le Cite, so the view from our room was amazing - the old battlements looked so close.

It was the little touches that we really appreciated after weeks of travel; bottled water, good-quality linen and nice bathroom products. Jacqui even dropped us off at the station. We felt so welcomed, and to be able to stay inside such an incredibly historic place was unbeatable. We'll be going back.

L'Echapee Belle is in a great location, is well appointed, has a friendly and accomplished inn-keeper. Jackie was very receptive to some of our special needs such as storing our luggage for a few hours (very important in a walled city with little vehicle access) and beds for two children. Our room was great, and her breakfast table is superb. A big bonus for many is her perfect English. The facility is a couple hunderd yards from one of the south entrances (near St Nazaire Basilica), something visitors to medeival walled cities can appreciate.

Room Tip: All is good. In arriving get detailed info on the access through the walls- very limited vehicle acc...

The L'Echappee Belle is located within the old city walls. It is a perfect location for spending a day visiting Carcassone. The rooms are very small, but this should be expected in this type of B&B. Breakfast was very good with fruit, juice, breads, yogurts, and cereal. The location is everything for this hotel. I would recommend it.

W found this B&B online. It is right in the old city of Carcassonne and was easy to find on foot. The owner was very helpful with all of our needs and was more than willing to prepare an early breakfast for us to allow us to catch an early train.
