Lovely holiday in peaceful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in very quiet, rural surroundings which comfortably housed our party of 9 (4 adults 5 teens). The pool and surrounding gardens were very relaxing and there was a constant cooling breeze. The hamlet was very small with no real facilities apart from the fantastic vineyard which offered great wine tasting and informative tours (great walk into surrounding hills) as well as gifts of fresh tomatoes! However there was plenty around at Lagrasse, Servies en Val and Trebes. Finally, Elaine was delightful!

Great house - Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday, while staying in Elaine’s house in Villemagne. The house is very spacious and the children were virtually swimming every day. We loved staying in Villemagne, a very small village with only about 6 or 7 seven house. Being opposite Chateau Villemagne definitely also contributed to our holiday. Be sure to taste some of their “Blood from Stone” white wine; it is unique and very special. It does not take long to fall in love with the house, the village and it’s surrounding. I can highly recommend Elaine’s house in Villemagne.

Amazing house in spectacular countryside

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous house, beautifully furnished, with everything provided for you that you could possibly want. Elaine the owner could not have been more helpful and the surrounding villages provide plenty of shops, restaurants etc. Magnificent beaches are 40 minutes away and Carcassonne city is great for shopping and eating as well as sight seeing. We had an amazing holiday - I cant recommend this house enough.

Villemagne is located 8kms from Lagrasse in the direction of Carcassonne.20 minutes to the Medieval Cite and 25 minutes to the airport. The bustling small town of Trebes on the Canal du Midi is less than 15 minutes away and has a couple of good fish restaurants on the canal side. The nearest village of Servies en Val is just 3 kms and has a good baker (which delivers to Villemagne each morning),butcher, shop, post office and cash point machine. It also has a bar which also serves good food!

Lagrasse at 8 minutes is classed as one of the most beautiful villages in France. The 12th Century Abbey sits on the river running through this Medieval Village. It has a tennis court, shops, restaurants and a good Saturday morning market. There are also opportunities to buy from local artists and potters in the craft shops in the village.

There are multiple opportunities for wine tasting in the region including Chateau Villemagne opposite the house.

The hamlet is surrounded by the hills of the Corbieres and offers great opportunities for walking and bird spotting. The area is inhabited by Buzzards, Hen harriers, Eagles and Herons .

The house is in a perfect location for use as a base to discover all of the Cathar Castles, beaches, regional food and wines and multiple tourist attractions the area has to offer.

A bread van delivers daily with a selection of breads and pastries.
