Didn't go inside to the Fondation so can't give 5 stars as didn't get the whole experience, however the little square you stand in is great, can really see the Renaissance architecture and there's a very interesting back-story to the building (built not as a hotel but as the ORIGINAL meaning of hotel, a big house/palace, belonging to a market-vendor...

I had very limited time in Toulouse and it was quite by accident that I discovered Hotel d,Assezat. If you are into Fine Arts this is a must. Look up the history on the internet but essentially this is a Renaissance style,once private, mansion bulging at the seams with visual delights: furniture, objet d'arts, porcelain etc etc.

it's on your way, so just step in and look around. A nice courtyard with some nice details, well worth a stop on your tour.

We didn't have time to go through the buildings, but we did stop and have a cup of tea on the balcony overlooking them. The area was beautiful and we will have to return and see inside another time.

If you're in TOulouse you really should visit the Hotel Assezat. It is really impressive and is definitely one of the most beautiful buildings in the city. Inside the building many headquarters to many society but the most interesting is the Foundation Bemberg. One of the best private collections of all south of France. A lovely place to see.

A wonderful opportunity to see a sumptuous villa and the gallery is so well laid out - portraits, porcelain, Impressionists. Some superb pieces by Renoir, titian and Toulouse-lautrec

There are very few opportunities for the public to get inside a hotel particulier/private mansion anywhere in France. This is a pink brick Renaissance banker's house. So see how the less than 1% lived. It is now owned by the city and houses the art collection of the Fondation Bemberg, which I reviewed separately.

I have to be honest and state that I didn't get a chance to actually go inside and do a proper tour of this building — inside the courtyard — but did get a comprehensive overview of the history of the building and its owner who made his fortune in the woad industry which was a plant that was used...

The building itself is the most wonderful palace in Toulouse. Even more inviting the Bemberg collection, wich is one of the best private collection in Europe
