About the home
The Arch Apartment, so called for its many splendid medieval arches is on the first floor of our 12th century house and has two bedrooms. The double bedroom with a beautiful original 3 metre Venetian arch and window at the foot of the bed, has a bespoke mahogany vanity unit and large Italian shower with mosaic tiles and a powerful rain shower head.
The twin, with a Juliette balcony overlooking the garden has a unique modern en-suite shower room situated through yet another stone arch. There is a separate WC.
The majestic Venetian window central to the lounge/diner allows the sunlight to flood the room and the window seat beneath adds character but also invites languid afternoons of reading. the fully equipped bespoke reclaimed french oak fitted kitchen adds to the charm of this apartment.

With arguably the most spectacular facade in the village, Neuf Rue de Cancans really is a gem nestled within the cobbled streets of a village voted 'One of Frances Prettiest'. The property offers visitors a relaxed, peaceful & historic holiday experience. During loving renovation, the house unveiled many historic secrets associated with the Cathars. With 15 authentic stone arches scattered throughout the property and various 12th century paintings you are sure to feel you have taken a step back in time! However, with all mod cons and a comfortable feel to the living accommodation in the self catering gite, it is history at its best!
The property is one of the few houses within the village walls to have a garden - a little piece of paradise can be found out here too. The apartment includes access to the communal garden with lawn, 2 BBQ areas and 4 terraces, al fresco dining is a must. A solar heated pool and raised decked area, boule court plus a 2 story children's play house nestled in the shade. Imagine the sun bouncing off the medieval walls & the breeze blowing through the cherry trees - you are sure to find leaving difficult!

The Languedoc-Roussillon / Aude region
With consistent temperatures in the mid 20's from May to September this part of Southern France has something to offer everyone, with its colourful landscape which changes dramatically through the seasons.
Lagrasse is a great base for exploring local history and architecture - with Narbonne’s fine medieval buildings and Roman beginnings, the great medieval walled Cité of Carcassonne, Cistercian Abbeys, Cathar Castles from the Albigensian crusades of the early 13th century on hilltops everywhere, fortified cathedrals at Beziers and Capestang and the exciting cosmopolitan southern cities of Toulouse, Montpellier, Perpignan and Albi - all these are within easy reach.
The Lagrasse area
The village has something for everyone - bars, restaurants, local artisan shops, boulangerie & once a month in summer, the local 'brocante'. Live bands play in the 8th century Abbey, classical concerts in the church & a world famous music festival during July, all lively & fun, a typically French atmosphere is guaranteed!
With village facilities including tennis courts, football & boules pitches only 2 minutes walk away & sailing & windsurfing a 30 minute drive away, there is also something to occupy the more sporty!! Skiing is only 2 hours away too. For those wanting a truly relaxing French village experience there is the pretty beach on the Orbieu river which is only a stones throw away through the cobbled streets. Superb fishing is also found on this river & with the Canal de Midi close by, tranquil boat trips are a must. The local market in the village offers superb local product every Saturday.
