About the location

La Cour des Consuls
46 rue des couteliers, 31000 Toulouse
  • Haute-Garonne
  • Occitanie
In the centre of old Toulouse, in a charming 18th century family home, this beautifully preserved historic site is now home to a hotel.
Located in the Carmes district, close to the banks of the Garonne, the Museums of Old Toulouse and the Grands Augustins, the hotel is a haven of peace where past centuries are expressed. Behind its superb neo-classical pink brick facade, enamelled with the family coat of arms, discover a renovated decor that retains historical characteristics.
Admire the remarkable ramp. The main staircase of the house contains a staircase with a ramp created by Joseph Bosc, with four bays composed of a series accompanied by oval motifs to day, the voids of which are respectively occupied by a laurel flame and a motif composed of a quiver and a cross torch hanging from a light sling, surrounded by an oak crown. The ovals are separated by panels of flowered stems and joined by oak garlands. It is listed under the title of Historical Monuments.
