When travel industry colleague Chris Lausch from the excellent website Welcome Beyond heard that we were in France, he proposed to stop by Carcassonne in the southwest of France. Chris recommended a stay at the holiday apartment of Peter Woodcock, a Londoner who swapped a successful career in advertising for La Douce France. He and his wife bought a townhouse in the heart of Carcassonne and then moved to the more quiet countryside. Rue Victor Hugo 42 is now for rent for the passant, for a night or longer for those who want to feel what it is like to live in a town like Carcassonne. The house has two smaller apartments and one larger one with huge master bedroom, a spacious kitchen and a giant seating and dining area. Rue Victor Hugo 42 is a 3-minute walk from Les Halles, the covered, local meat and fish market of the city, and Place Carnot, a pleasant square where on Saturday the fruit and fruit market happens.
