This medieval house situated on the banks of the Orbieu river in beautiful Lagrasse provides not only an ideal base to explore this rich and historic region but also acts as a destination in itself. THE INDEPENDANT RENTAL APARTMENT/GITE has a magnificent terrace which overlooks the iconic medieval stone bridge and the hills across the river. It provides the ideal space to spend your days and evenings. Watch the sun setting over the hills opposite while you have drinks and dinner cooked on the plancha.

The internal courtyard always stays cool and shady, even on the hottest summer days. Step out of the back of the house and go for a paddle in the river or step out of the front door to find yourself in the heart of this special village. Parts of the house date back to medieval days. The cool colours of the ancient stone walls combine with the thoughtful renovation to create a calm and relaxing atmosphere.

The apartment is on the first floor with further steps up to the terrace. If you have any concerns about accessibility due to the mobility of any member in your party please contact us first and we'll talk you through.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

In the heart of Cathar country the area provides a huge choice of activities. From visits to historic sites such as Carcassone or Peyrepertruse to the beautifully clean mediterranean beaches to wine tasting and local "fetes". This region offers more sunshine than any other part of France. The Aude is perhaps the undiscovered Provence.


Lagrasse is famous for its abbey founded in 799 by Charlamagne. Local attractions are numerous and during the summer months the whole area is alive with fetes and other village events. Out of the summer season the village is a perfect place to spend time exploring the garrigue hills, sampling delicious local produce, cycling, canooing, horse riding or simply relaxing on the terrace overlooking the river.

"Excellent place to start your year"

Very cosy, spacious appartment in ancient building in the center of Lagrasse, Corbiéres. Lovely inner court with access to a splendid terrace and a view over the river, the medieval bridge and the monastry. Very tastefully renovated rooms with individual shower and toilet. Big, comfortable beds. Floor heating. A kitchen with everything you need to cook delicious meals from the local markets - if you have a good cook with you. We spent a great time with our friends here (3 couples with 2 kids).

"just marvelous"

A wonderful and very clean apartment. Very calm (if you are not disturbed by natural noises like the sound of the river - we loved it).The look is modern and stylish but cosy anyway, lovingly decorated. Bed was comfortable. Well equipped kitchen. We really had a great time.

"A Peaceful Sanctuary with Great Food and Good Company"

After a hectic trip around much of France we needed to unwind and enjoy French rural life at its best. In the beautiful village of Lagrasse we found a designer sanctuary with all the space, peace and quiet we were looking for at the House la France. An incredible location with a huge roof terrace overlooking the winding river, were we ate, drank, laughed and danced the warm days away as life should be. We enjoyed country walks and sampled many of the excellent restaurants in the lovely village of Lagrasse that also has many small designer artisans making pottery or other quality gifts. All the local people were friendly and we had great service from the local bakery and pharmacist. Our thanks to Nicole for all her recommendations and to Michael who arranged for one of our party to see a local doctor. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your beautiful apartment and it helped our distant family reconnect in a wonderful way.

"A little price of heaven"

We booked the 3 bedroom apartment as ithe decor and terrace looked so fabulous, we were not disappointed it exceeded our expectations, Exceptionally clean and spacious chic decor, we immediately felt at home. the terrace is huge and the views are stunning. The apartment location and Lagrasse was perfect to explore the Languedoc region, we will certainly return in the future. I am extremely fussy where I stay and this was in my opinion perfect in every way, highly recommended.
