Rue Victor Hugo is in the heart of the old town, or Bastide St Louis, the historic heart of the town of Carcassonne. The suites are located on the first floor of an hôtel particulier (grand French townhouse) and are a minutes walk from the Place Carnot – the buzzy central square – the apartments have soaring ceilings, old moulded plaster work and patterned parquet floors. After two years of renovations we opened the apartments up to visitors who were looking for an authentic and beautiful place to stay.
