Basically a couple years ago I discovered Basile, LA. I live up in Connecticut and the only reason this town intrigues me is because Basile is my last name.
One day I would like to venture down to Basile. I was wondering how exactly is "Basile" pronounced and if there any attractions down there. Any other information would be great to such as history, etc.
Thanks!

basele is how basile is pronounced. there is basically nothing in this small stretch of road. there is a financial company, a bank, a dollar store, a fabric shop, a service station and convienence store. you will be disappointed if you travel down here to see this little hole in the wall just because it happens to be your last name.

yes, and the first full weekend of november holds the La SWINE FESTIVAL. at this festival, you will find lots of traditional pork foods, a carnival and the infamous greasy pig and boudin eating contests. so if you wanna come down to see what our small town is all about, that would be the best time to come. its when our community really comes together and is all about a good time!!

I am from Basile, I grew up there, went to school, and left years ago. I always look forward to going back just to see old friends & family. I love the food & the fresh air smell, no chemicals in the air, like the city.
