Experience 19th-century France interwoven with modernity in the Carcassonne Townhouse

Nestled right in the middle of the old and new town of Bastide Saint Louis, the Carcassonne Townhouse interlaces luxury with heritage and comfort. The owners, Rachel and Mark, found this beautiful townhouse and transformed it into an unforgettable B&B experience.

Every hotel part exudes a 19th-century vibe, evident across the antique beds and original wall patterns. The cosy aura surrounding the boutique B&B is perfectly complemented by the warmth of the hotel staff and their ever-willingness to lend a helping hand.

As you walk into your room, you are thrust into a century-old experience yet immersed in contemporary comfort. The powerful fans push cool air across your skin, and the windows draw you in for a mesmerising view of the medieval city.

Wake up to the smell of freshly baked pastries and enter the Carcassonne Townhouse’s breakfast room for a well-deserved buffet. Tingle your tastebuds with some classic french cheese and savour the luscious yoghurt just before you start your Carcassonne exploration.

Take some time to digest the beauty of medieval times right before you and, perhaps, take a photo or two for the road. Then enter Bastide Saint Louis, where an array of adventures like sipping coffee with locals at Cafe Felix on the square await you.

Whatever you choose to do and however long you decide to stay, Carcassonne Townhouse has a charming way of pulling you back.

Excellent accommodation for a short break. Lovely big authentic room with big modern bathroom. Great breakfast and very friendly helpful staff. Not a criticism but some of the tiles on the bedroom floor were cracked and loose but it's all part of the character. No lift but would definitely recommend.

This place was wonderful for my solo trip, generous size room and bath and the concierge took great care of, providing wonderful gf items for breakfast as I had let her know ahead that I was gluten intolerant. Plenty of yoga space!

We had a lovely stay at the Carcassonne Townhouse! The hosts are warm and welcoming, and you are sure to appreciate the delightful breakfast provided before a full day of exploring the city. The location is superb - just hop over the bridge into old town or explore the newer parts of Carcassonne. We stayed in the Cite View Suite, which was very comfortable and spacious. We loved having a view of the fortress from our window! Thank you for a wonderful stay.
