The accommodation has 3 bedrooms. There are 2 Doubles - one with a king size bed, the other with a super king. This last can be changed into 2 singles should you prefer. The third bedroom is a Twin and has 2 standard single beds. All the bedrooms have en-suite modern, well-finished bath or shower rooms with the largest having a cast iron roll top bath. We provide all bed linens in fine white Egyptian cotton.

All the interior accessories are antique or have been custom made locally. It is bright and spacious with some exposed stone walls, high ceilings and large windows looking out over the river toward the fragrant hills opposite - wild Rosemary and Thyme grow there in abundance among the many Pine and Cypress trees.

The kitchen is well equipped with gas hob, oven, dishwasher, large fridge/freezer, microwave and all accessories required to turn out your holiday meals. It has French doors opening out onto a terrace, perfect for dining, drinking or…..anything else you might fancy!

About the property

FR5956

An exceptional & beautifully decorated home on the river Orbieu in historic unspoilt Lagrasse. Two terraces overlook the iconic medieval stone bridge & the hills across the river. Watch the sun set while you have drinks, with dinner cooked on the plancha. The internal courtyard always stays cool & shady, even on the hottest summer days. Step out of the back door & go for a paddle in the river or step out of the front 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. Surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and the scent of pine, thyme and rosemary from the surrounding hills. Lagrasse is officially one of the most beautiful villages in France. It is famous for its 8th Century Abbey and perfectly located to explore Cathar Castles, the Canal du Midi, the Citadel at Carcassonne, the Mediterranean, the Pyrenees & Spain.

About Nicole

I have lived in Lagrasse for 10 years now. Initially falling for this beautiful village and area when out searching for a property with which to create our 'change of life' plan after living in London for many years.

Nicole is a former interior designer and stylist.

I genuinely enjoy having 'guests' come to stay and to have the chance to share this very special and hugely beautiful part of France.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: We have a child's cot available for those traveling with a very young child and bicycles available on request for you to borrow. Outside: The house has been featured in Homes & Gardens Magazine, BBC Homes and antiques along with several other Home and Interior Magazines. To the rear of the house is the riverbank leading down to the river Orbieu which at this point is very shallow and therefore provides a safe place for paddling and fishing. We have bicycles available you can borrow. A little further up stream the river has a natural pebbly beach. During the summer months the river is dammed thereby creating a lovely swimming spot with a lifeguard provided during high season.
