Why Serge MAZY chose La Bastide Saint-Louis

The Bastide Saint Louis, built in 1260, is the commercial center of Carcassonne; with shops, restaurants and cafés; plus a daily indoor market and a thrice-weekly outdoor market. La Cité and the Canal du Midi are a short walk away.

The SNCF train station is six blocks away. A bus shuttle brings airport passengers to the train station. There is paid undeground and street parking two blocks away and free parking a bit farther.

What makes this apartment unique

Huge antique mirrors above the marble fireplaces echo the elaborately carved boiseries that top the chimneys. The space is generous; even the WC is big. This is the dream destination for those who want to experience the life of French elegance and grace, steeped in history while enjoying all the modern conveniences, such as an induction stovetop.

Charming Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just recently returned from a 4 night stay at La Suite Barbes. The apartment is just as advertised, decorated in a traditional French manner with everything that you could possibly need for a relaxing break. Being recently refurbished everything is in a new condition and it was so nice to have a large walk in shower which is not always the norm in Carcassonne. The rooms are large, bright and airy while the location is perfect for visiting the bustling narrow streets of La Bastide or taking a short walk to the fairytale citadel at La Cite.

We were met at the apartment by Serge who had kindly agreed to allow us early entry (and also a slightly later departure). He gave us a quick tour of the apartment and provided some recommendations for local restaurants. He was more than happy to answer any questions that we had.

We purchased items for breakfast at one of the many nearby boulangerie a couple of times but got lazy and had breakfast on our last two days in Place Carnot at a lovely little café (Briocherie Arpin) where we could sit and enjoy watching the world go by.

There was a bit of noise outside the apartment some mornings (we think from the road cleaners) but it was quiet at all other times. We probably picked up on this more as we live in the country and aren’t really used to things like this going on.

Serge came to pick up the keys when we were leaving and even gave us a quick tour of his other apartment next door before we left. This was very much the same as ours but with an extra bedroom. It is to the rear of the property so may be slightly quieter.

This was our fourth visit to Carcassonne and this was by far the best accommodation that we have stayed in. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again and look forward to returning in the not too distant future.

Fabulous elegant apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this luxury apartment for four nights and were so happy we did! The classic furnishings are far beyond what you would expect for a rental, with attention to every detail. They kindly provide a few basic ingredients in the kitchen to get one started if you plan on cooking which we did as we needed a break from eating out all the time. This place is a must if you love markets like we do as it is so close to the action!

The furniture was not only comfortable but beautiful. The appliances were all new and included manuals in French and English to help us do a much needed wash and use the stove. There are several shops conveniently located that we frequented like the charcuterie next door and assortment of bakeries. Even though this is convenient to the tourist sites, we never had problems finding parking either.

Finally, the owner Serge, met us upon our arrival to make sure we had everything we needed and all questions answered. This really helped us feel at home in Carcassonne! I would definitely stay here again without hesitation.
