With arguably the most spectacular façade 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 and 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 13th 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 Grenier has full use of the shared walled garden, covered terrace area, summer kitchen, a solar heated pool, lawn, terraces & BBQ's. The pool is raised with a wooden deck around it - perfect for relaxing & enjoying the South of France weather! There are 3 x BBQ areas and 5 terrace areas in the garden so you have a choice of where to cook & with different seating areas also a choice of where to eat! There is a gravel area suitable for a relaxed game of French boules. With a perfectly placed stone table made from an old flour mill wheel to rest your glass while you take your turn! With a tree house and several garden toys and games, the children will be kept busy giving you time to relax & enjoy the garden! You are sure to find leaving difficult!
A cot and put you up bed are available upon request for a small additional charge.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region
With consistent temperatures in the mid to late 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 within easy reach.
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. Activities to occupy the more sporty include sailing & windsurfing, approximately a 30 minute drive away. Skiing is 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.
Other activities in and around the area include ~ Guided tours, painting, pottery, shopping, wine & honey tasting, shooting, boules, football, boating, canoeing, rock climbing, canyoning & of course relaxing!
