In the heart of the Bastide Saint-Louis in Carcassonne, your new apartment awaits - and it is a DELIGHT! Completely renovated, but with the utmost respect and attention to even the smallest period details and materials, you’ll find stunning stained glass, beautiful tile work, and silkscreened textiles that complement the bright, modern aesthetic.

Starting off in the "salon", you’ll be mesmerized by the artful touches that abound. Detailed wainscoting and crown molding envelope the airy room, with an absolute showstopper of a marble fireplace as the focal point of the room. The high ceilings and nearly floor-to-ceiling windows make this space feel open and ready for hosting your next holiday gathering.

The arched hallway draws your eyes down its length, passing bronzed statues and detailed cornices on your way towards the cobalt-blue entry cove. A detailed stained-glass window lets in soft and subtle colored light that dances on the white walls within.

And can we talk about that tiled floor?? What a way to welcome someone into your home.

More wainscoting follows you throughout the house, and into the dining room, where chevron hardwood floors, another fireplace, and an accent wall adorned with warm floral wallpaper will delight your senses as you enjoy le banquet of coq au vin or a steaming bowl of bouillabaisse.

The kitchen is a surprise of contemporary luxury, complete with sleek, new appliances and tons of counter space and storage. But even with all this modernity, a quick glance at the stained glass window and you’re reminded of the character of the home.

There are two bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms on the other wing. High ceilings make the rooms feel spacious and welcoming, with bright windows to let the light in. More tilework and a view from the opposite side of another stained glass window are a treat for you in the full bath.

Overall, the home is an absolute dream and the details in every nook and cranny will give you allll the heart eye emojis!
