House & Home

Elegant townhouse with added comfort.

The balconied façade of the Townhouse looks out over the medieval Cité and riverside park, and hides a tranquil courtyard. Built in 1850, the Townhouse is newly restored and decorated in an eclectic style, combining classic furniture with vintage elements in perfect balance. Step inside and discover beautifully patterned original tiles, glimpses of original wallpaper and vintage French furniture sourced local markets sitting alongside the clean lines of design classics and modern artwork.

Laid back breakfast

Enjoyed indoors or out.

Breakfast can be enjoyed outside in our hidden courtyard, or in our period breakfast room, depending on the weather. Delicious fresh croissants and breads, a daily selection of meats, fish and cheese, plus healthy fruits with yoghurt and museli are offered as a buffet, alongside freshly ground coffee and artisan English teas. The tranquil terrace is a great spot for relaxing with a glass of wine and a good book between forays into the Cité and Bastide Saint-Louis.

On two wheels

Complimentary bike hire.

We offer complimentary bike hire to all our bed and breakfast guests. Choose between our stylish fixies which are great fun for cruising around the streets of Carcassonne, or our sturdy hybrids if you want a longer ride. Our favourite bike rides include following the Canal du Midi from Carcassonne to Trebes, with lunch at the lovely little port, or along the leafy river Aude right by the Townhouse.

Your hosts

Rachael & Mark.

We look forward to welcoming you to our home and helping you discover magical Carcassonne and the beautiful Occitanie region. We bought the Townhouse back in 2016 and welcomed our first bed and breakfast guests in 2018 after an extensive renovation. Read more about our French adventure on the beautiful Rock My Style blog.
