Description

One of three huge apartments in our medieval house offering an ideal year round base to enjoy peaceful Lagrasse with its artists, restaurants and cobbled streets.

REDUCED RATES for 2 people

The Market gite, with its 17th century timber ceilings has 3 bedrooms, one bathroom with separate wc. One can swim from the riverside garden and the apartment itself is a fantastic base for exploring the area.

The apartment is very large but homely so is equally suited to a couple who want to enjoy the peace and quiet of French village. There is a riverside garden as well as river SWIMMING literally on the doorstep! Two of the 3 bedrooms have double beds (one KINGSIZE, the other queen size + single bed)

Lagrasse is known as one of the prettiest villages in France which is perhaps why it has attracted many artists who open their doors to visitors. The village is surrounded by vineyards and the Corbieres hills and yet is only 40 minutes from Mediterranean beaches and Carcassonne.

Lagrasse is known as one of the prettiest villages in France which is perhaps why it has attracted many artists who open their doors to visitors. The village is surrounded by vineyards and the Corbieres hills and yet is only 40 minutes from Mediterranean beaches and Carcassonne.

Vineyards and olive groves line the valley and the surrounding wild hills offer superb walking through umbrella pines with views to Pyrenees.

There are 5 excellent restaurants, a bakery with delicious cakes, a café/bar, shops, a busy delicatessen with ready prepared meal, tabac, post office, cash dispenser, doctors, chemist and many 'caves' selling their own excellent wine.

The 13th century market place (on our doorstep) has a market on Saturday mornings selling organic local produce. There are two shops and several wine producers and if all you want to do is relax in Lagrasse there is no need for a car.

The vineyards and olive groves of the river valley are an inspiration for artists; for those wanting more than an amble, the wild hills with their limestone crags, umbrella pines & cypress trees are on the doorstep. In the winter months there are breathtaking views to the snow capped Pyrénées.

Lagrasse's Abbey founded in the 8th century, is shared between the commune & the Chanoines monks both of whom welcome visitors. The tennis court, football & boules pitch are open to all & we are happy to lend you racquets & balls. The area is great for walking & mountain biking, river swimming & horse riding, all of which you can do from the doorstep.

There are castles to visit, the Mediterranean beckoning & the Canal du midi for a leisurely boat ride. If you want more activity there are walks from the doorstep, mountain biking, horse riding, fishing, tennis.

Swim or paddle in the river at the back of the house and wander underneath the 11th century bridge. The pebble beach of the river bank is a peaceful place for children to play and adults to sunbathe.

The 3 apartments can be rented together and sleep 17 people. There are also two sofa beds.

Kate & Roger have lived in Lagrasse and running the gites since 2001. They are on hand to give advice or suggest visits.

Lagrasse

Our three gîtes are situated in the medieval ramparts of the village. In the Middle Ages, the mansion which houses the gîtes was in fact two separate houses divided by a cobbled lane. These were combined in the 19th century - the cobbled lane was replaced by a grand stairwell and hallway with a vast glass skylight. It is this hallway that separates the Balcony gîte and the Riverside gîte (overlooking the river Orbieu) from the Market Place gîte.

Swim or paddle in the river at the back of the house and wander underneath the 11th century bridge. The pebble beach of the river bank is a peaceful place for children to play and adults to sunbathe. The garden overlooks the river where one can enjoy a glass of wine under the walnut tree. Reclining

“A lovely break in a beautiful setting.”

Reviewed 2 Nov 2014

We had an enjoyable stay at the Market Gite. The owners were very helpful with tips for things to do and providing extras which we requested (towels, hairdryer, bag for the beach etc.) Lagrasse is beautiful and the sitting area next to the river with a view of the bridge and Abbey at the back of the gites was really lovely. Swimming in the river (wetsuits were needed as it was October) was a plus and, I imagine, would be wonderful in warmer months. The only shame for us was that many of the best restaurants in the village were closed for the winter.

“Beautiful spacious apartment in perfect village - and a river!”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2011

We stayed in the Market Gite which was beautiful and spacious. Three bedrooms - one with a queen and single, a well equipped kitchen and a really beautiful sitting room. Lots of books and videos, a table tennis table downstairs and a river out the back. The village itself is extremely picturesque and has nice restaurant, although minimal practical shopping (ie small and not all that well stocked supermarkets). Great patisserie though, and it felt special just walking around and sitting in the lovely Abbey cafe. Parking is a short walk away but you can unload by the property. A steep set of stairs through the basement takes you out to a small grassed area looking over a pebbled beach to a lovely little river, good for a swim. There are plenty of things to do nearby and Kate and Roger are knowledgable, helpful and available without being at all intrusive. Nice bath, good shower (over the bath), separate toilet. Also a piano! The kitchen, while well equipped, lacked a few basics like salt, sugar, coffee etc and it would be great if these could be stocked. One of the bedrooms overlooks the common internal stairwell and you need to be a bit careful with your curtain closing. Other than that hard to fault this delightful place.
