Description

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 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 Simon de Montfort who was hated in the Languedoc for his cruelty and ambition towards the Cathars, you are sure to feel that you have taken a step back in time!

However, with all mod cons and a comfortable feel to the living accommodation in the Arch Apartment, it is history at its best. With arguably the most spectacular facade in the village, Neuf Rue des Cancans really is a gem nestled within the cobbled streets of a village voted 'One of Frances Prettiest.'

The second bedroom has two twin beds, a double day bed, en-suite with glass sink, WC and bath with shower over. The twins can be made up as a double if required.

Both bedrooms lead to the center of the apartment where you will find the bespoke, fully equipped kitchen with dining area. The kitchen is built from wood found during the recent renovation of the house and in addition to the original loft beans adds character to this attractive yet functional and usable space.

The comfortably furnished lounge looks down to the walled garden and has cosy sofa's with Sky TV and DVD player.

The apartment also includes access to the communal garden. The garden contains 3 x BBQ areas, 5 terraces, a grassy lawn, pétanque area and to top it all off a solar heated swimming pool with decked area. All of this is nestled within the original medieval stonewalls of our courtyard providing secluded privacy from the outside world. Apartment fully air-conditioned.

The Grenier Apartment has all you need for modern living twinned with the medieval and historic features we unearthed during the renovation. With sloped ceilings, original oak beams, hidden nooks and original wooden doors, the Grenier is sure to enhance any stay in Lagrasse.

Location description from owner

The Occitanie 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.

Lagrasse

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!
