Situated within the walls of the village our house offers visitors a relaxed, peaceful & historic holiday experience. We (Guy and Claire) provide a warm welcome and are on hand to provide advice or suggestions on where to visit. Our trip advisor reviews are excellent so why not search 'Holidays in Lagrasse' to view the comments from our past clients who describe the activities and the high standard of service that we provide.
During loving renovation, the house unveiled many historic secrets associated with the Cathars. With 15 authentic stone arches are scattered throughout the property and various 13th century paintings. The latter are currently under restoration with the first paintings unveiled in the village Maison de Patrimone (September 2014) revealing 20 chevaliers including one that depicts the coat of arms for Simon de Montfort who was hated in the Languedoc for his cruelty and ambition towards the Cathars, 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 gîte, it is history at its best! 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 Garden Studio, so called for its access straight into the garden, offers the perfect chance to enjoy easy yet comfortable French living. With a log burner for cooler months and huge glass patio doors, this is a wonderful retreat throughout the year. The Garden Studio, entered through the glass patio doors from the garden, has a fully equipped fitted kitchen, and a dining area with delightful views back into the garden. An imposing archway leads into the lounge with its comfortable furniture a log burner and a front door for easy access to the village.
At the other end of this delightful room and under the original wooden beams is the sleeping area. With clever design and furniture placement, although actually one large room, this feels like 2 separate areas. The sleeping area has a king size double bed (can be made into twin beds to suit all requirements), chest of drawers and a wardrobe for all your storage. A shower room leads off this end of the room, with a large fully tiled Italian walk in shower, WC & vanity sink unit.
During renovations the plans were drawn up to make this a one bedroom apartment but when demolition work unearthed a beautiful hidden stone arch and numerous wooden beams we decided we simply couldn't cover any of these features up with a wall! And so the Garden studio was born.
The Garden Studio is set within the medieval walls of our property, one of the few houses within the village walls to have a garden. A little piece of paradise can be found with its beautiful grassy lawn, 3 BBQ areas, 5 terraces, pétanque area & solar heated secure pool with sun deck; spending time in the garden will be high on your list of priorities!
Cathar Trail: As Lagrasse nestles in the foothills of the Pyrenees on the Cathar Trail there is an abundance of historic sightseeing to be done within the region.
Water Sports: Lagrasse has a small river beach which is a fun place to spend time relaxing and excellent for fishing. For those who want more excitement the beaches at Gruissan, Leucate and Port Nouvelle are only half an hour away. Here you can wind surf, water ski, kite surf, book fishing trips, hire boats and go sailing.
We provide: free wifi internet, bed linen plus tea towels and bath towels. Laundry facilities are on site. Cooler bags, ice packs etc are available for the days you would like to take a picnic. We can arrange holistic treatments, wine tasting, painting courses and for those feeling more energetic guided walking is available through the local countryside and bike hire can easily be arranged.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region
With consistent temperatures in the mid 20s 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 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 & relaxing,

We have recently returned from 1 weeks holiday staying in the Garden Studio in Lagrasse. Firstly, we had such a warm welcome from Guy & Claire (the owners) we felt immediately relaxed and at home. The accomodation was tastefully furnished and comfortable, a 12th century restoration with the benefits of modern conveniences. The standard of the accomodation for a rental was very high. The village itself was quaint with a few shops and restaurants, the bakers was opened every day with wonderful french bread, cakes and pastries. Ate out in Lagrasse a couple of times and thought meals fairly priced and standard of food good - other occasions ate in as the kitchen is fully equipped and it was nice to sit in the garden with a bottle of wine (local of course). Visited Carcassone, french market, Narbonne, beaches near Narbonne, La Franqui further afield and a beach near Beziers which was very nice also went to Toulouse. Pretty sure there was a lot more to explore perhaps next time. Would definately recommend - was sorry that the holiday came to an end.
