Description from owner

Description

Located at the entrance to the village of Raissac d'Aude, Le Ramonétage is an extremely comfortable 2 bedroom apartment of some 65m2 in what was once the wine workers' accommodation of the wine domain.

The entrance to the apartment is rustic in appearance; it is located immediately above the stables (which serves as a games room) in a separate building to the main house; it has its own dedicated entrance through stable doors with the staircase leading up to the apartment which incorporates all modern conveniences. To the front (south) there are views over the vineyards which are still owned by the family who originally built the domain. To the rear there are views over the 10X5 metre swimming pool (shared with owners). Off-road parking is available on driveway directly outside the apartment entrance.

Between the village store, the local shops (including tennis courts) in Canet d'Aude (5mins) and the more comprehensive shopping at Lezignan Corbieres (10mins) and Narbonne

The Occitanie region

Things to do:
Abbaye de Fontfroide - Restored Benedictine abbey founded int he 11th Century located just outside Narbonne
Sigean African Wildlife Reserve - 15km south of Narbonne on c. 300 hectares of land and housing more than 3,800 animals
Basilique St-Nazaire - The first church would have been built in the 6th century under the Visigoths and King Theordoric. Documentation dates back to 925. Located in Carcassonne.
La Cité in Carcassonne is a must see. An impressive fortress style construction which has played a central role in local history of the centuries.
Carcassonne Festival - usually held in July.
Lake Cavayere near Carcassone offers picnic areas, pedalo hire, miniature golf, sandy beaches, fishing, and a Forestry Acrobatic Park. An ideal place for walking around its pine shaded paths.
The Cathar Trail - The area is littered with Cathar history. An interesting topic to read up on, or alternatively take some time to visit some of the many castles which the region houses.
Canal du Midi - Now very much leisure focused, the canal originally brought commerce and wealth to the region when it linked the Atlantic to the Mediterranean in the 17th Century. Conveniently, the canal is just 5km from the house - an easy cyle ride or a short drive.
Toulouse - The 'pink city' as it's often referred to.
Cassoulet Trail - If food is your thing, then a trip to Castelnaudary to try their famous cassoulet is a must do.
La Clape massif - Once an island, now an area of c. 15,000 hectares and located between Narbonne and the coast. Just a short drive from the property and offering some fabulous walks and wildlife, not to mention stunning sea views.
The lagoons - The Aude coastline is littered with salt water lagoons. Salt marshes, rich fauna and flora and some significant oyster farming make these interesting areas to stroll around. Traditional fishing methods are still practised in the lagoons.
Visit the beach! The Mediterranean beaches are long and sandy around here. And the choice....! Narbonne Plage is the nearest although there are a variety of others to choose from.

Raissac d'Aude

Raissac d'Aude is one of those sleepy little French villages - there are just 260 people living here and the road to the village goes no where else. Not surprisingly therefore it's a peaceful place. Surrounded on all sides by vineyards little has changed over the last century. It's location is superb - it is off the beaten track yet within easy distance of the medieval Carcassonne, the Mediterranean coast, Corbieres hills, unlimited vineyards and a15 minute drive into central Narbonne & 5 minutes to the Canal du Midi. The market town of Lezignan Corbieres is 10 minutes away and the area is well known for its Cathar castles and local wine is cheap and plentiful! If you fancy something completely different, then Spain is only 75 minutes away.

Raissac itself has a corner shop selling fresh bread , croissants and groceries, a post office and its own winery where you can sample on Tuesday and Friday mornings. Visiting vans sell meat and fish in the church square. In the grounds of the village hall there is a small park with slide and play area for young children. The nearest bar is 5 mintutes away in Canet d'Aude where there is also a good pizzeria, small supermarket, boulangerie, pharmacy, newagents, butchers and tennis courts. More restaurants can be found in nearby Ventenac and Paraza by the Canal du Midi about 5km away. Beyond that, there are numerous other villages with restaurants within 15 minutes drive of Raissac.

Narbonne is an easy (i.e. not small windy roads) 15 minutes drive away where there is a limitless choice of shops, boutiques, bars and restaurants, hypermarkets and a really good indoor market every day (open until 1 o'clock), plus a bi-weekly market Sundays and Thursdays.

Lezignan Corbieres is just under 15 mins away and has a good market on a Wednesday with a full range of shops for provisions.

“Outstanding pool in characterful property.”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Le Ramonetage during June. The property is very comfortable and rooms more spacious than the photos suggest. English TV and kids channels were useful in keeping our 4 year old boy entertained on the one rainy afternoon we had. The real gem here is the delightful pool, garden and facilities. We spent a couple of days just enjoying the large private pool in peaceful surroundings and made use of the gas BBQ and fridge (to keep cold drinks at hand). The pool area gets the sun all day but plenty of loungers, parasols and shade available in the enclosure. It was great to enjoy a few meals outside on the family dining table. The owner, Ingrid, gave us a warm welcome and was extremely helpful and kind. At one point, when my wife needed prescription medication Ingrid offered to accompany her to the nearest GP. We were grateful also of the loan flagon to use for the very drinkable wine available ‘en vrac’ from the nearby village of Villedaigne (1 euro a litre). Recommended places to eat: Tasty food at the reasonably priced restaurants in nearby Ventanac-en-Minervois and Paraza both on the banks of the Canal du Midi. Recommended days out: Lagrasse (beautiful old village on the River Orbieu), Carcassonne (for fantastic medieval ambience) and Gruissan Plage (wonderfully spacious beach with shallow water that’s safe for young children).

“Beautiful and peaceful.”

Reviewed 30 Apr 2013

We received a very warm and friendly greeting by Ingrid, the owner who was very helpful with any advice we needed about the area and also the property. The apartment is very attractive, well furnished and equipped. Also spotlessly clean. The garden and pool area is beautiful and peaceful. Would recommend for a relaxing holiday.

“Beautiful location and property.”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2011

We stayed at this property for the last week of September, beginning October 2011 - weather perfect. The accommodation was just as described and we couldn't fault it in any way. The pool setting was beautiful and the whole place peaceful and relaxing (well, it was until our 3 and 7 year old's arrived anyway!). The owner, Ingrid was incredibly helpful, and on hand for any problems - although none arose. We would most definitely recommend this rental - the location is superb whether it be for a day at the beach, sightseeing, wine tasting, exploring the surrounding hills, villages and canal, or simply for relaxing by the pool. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful property. Sue, Alan, Lily and Anna Staples.
