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.

Two bedrooms have double beds (one KINGSIZE, the other queen size + single bed) and a single bedroom however the apartment is equally suited to a couple wanting to enjoy the peace and quiet of French village. There is a riverside garden as well as river SWIMMING literally on the doorstep!

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.

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.

Kingfishers can be seen from the garden and nightingales come back to the river bank to sing each year. The river is dammed in the summer & is a popular place to swim.

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.

The 3 apartments can be rented together and sleep 16 people in beds. There are also two sofa beds.

Kate & Roger have lived in Lagrasse since 2001 & are on hand to give advice or suggest visits.
