La Maison de l'Ambassadeur is the former home of the French ambassador to Finland situated in the Bastide in central Carcassonne. Built during the reign of King Louis IX, it famously acquired its unique Art Nouveau facade in 1910.
Sleeping up to 12 guests comfortably (or 16 if the additional internal flat is rented), it has a bar for private use, fully equipped kitchen and 2 generous reception rooms (one with a large dining area) leading out on to a private, secluded garden with outside seating.
The house offers 450 square metres of space for its guests. Featuring high ceilings, intricate plasterwork, marble fireplaces and a sweeping marble staircase, it is an architectural gem. The generous rooms and hallways are testament to its past function as a place for entertaining important dignitaries.
