Mazères - charming and historic with modern amenities

The pretty bastide town of Mazères is uniquely placed for easy access from the airports and railway stations of both Toulouse and Carcassonne.

Charmingly historic and typically Toulousain in style and architecture, the town retains a mediaeval air, yet has all home comforts and modern amenities. It also enjoys a lovely riverside setting.

Heritage of Mazères

Mazères is a bastide town, and still follows the typical pattern of these distinctive "mediaeval new towns". Many of the houses are built in the same distinctive pink brick as Toulouse, and also display the local style of pebble designs in their walls. Some have external timbers betraying their mediaeval origins. The most important buildings in Mazères are the church and the 16th century Hotel Ardouin (housing an excellent museum now). The natural heritage includes the ponds and wetlands known as the Field Of Birds and the River l'Hers.
