The apartment could not be more central! Two minutes in one direction, and you are at the Cathedral St. Just, next to the town square. Two minutes in the other direction takes you to the Canal de la Robine, a tributary of the Canal du Midi, which flows through the heart of the city, and on whose banks are too many restaurants and bars to count. Another 2 to 3 minutes on foot and you'll be at Les Halles--one of the largest and best covered markets in France. Finally, 3 minutes in still another direction will take you to the Place de la Révolution/Léon Blum, with its park and restaurants.
If travelling by train, the Gare de Narbonne is so close (10-12 minutes by foot) that one never needs a taxi.

Laura RHODES purchased this apartment in 2005
Why Laura RHODES chose Cité
To tell you a little about ourselves, we are an American couple living in France since 2000. In 2004 my husband's mother died, leaving him a small inheritance, and he wanted to find us a "second residence" in France. I chose Narbonne simply by chance -- I had changed trains there twice en route to Barcelona -- and within two hours of arriving in the city we were shown this apartment. It was love at first sight! We signed for the apartment the next day, and took ownership in February 2005. We've been renting it to vacationers -- both short and long-term -- since the summer of 2006. In 2010-2011 we lived in the apartment ourselves for nine months, and for that reason especially it is extremely well equipped! (We installed the air conditioning then, too.)
What makes this apartment unique
If you wish to spend your vacation in complete comfort (A/C and heating both work extremely well!), just a minute or two by foot from several good restaurants, cafés, bars, and historic monuments, you will be very happy in "La Brigade". Moreover, Narbonne is well situated to take off for one of the two beautiful Mediterranean beaches, bicycle along the canal, or to explore "Cathar country". The apartment is only 10-12 minutes by foot from the Gare (train station) de Narbonne, from where a short train ride will take you to Montpellier, Sète, Agde and Beziers to the North, Carcassonne and Toulouse to the West, and Perpignan and Collioure to the South. Now that the Spanish AVE trains are in service, it's even possible to do Barcelona as a day trip... although it's such a fabulous city that I would recommend spending two nights there minimum!
