The Riverside Gite - Lagrasse in Aude, a gite in Languedoc-Roussillon

Luxurious 2 bed apartment in Medieval house in village with all amenities

The Riverside gite is on the banks of the river Orbieu and has wonderful views to the 12th century stone bridge and the Mediterranean hillside beyond.
This 2 bedroom apartment has been incorporated into what were the medieval ramparts of the village and its prime position on the river gives you the feeling of being in the countryside, with the sound of the river to lull you to sleep at night and yet the front of the house opens into the heart of the village and 13th century covered market.
You are only a minute’s walk from restaurants, the bakery, local 'artisans' with their galleries and the village shops.

The apartment can sleep 5/7 in two large bedrooms. Both bedrooms have kingsize beds and there is also a 120cm bed and sofa bed. Despite the size of the gite, a couple on their own will feel very at home.

For more details of all three apartments visit the owners website.

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 4 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, garage 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; and for those wanting more than an amble, the wild hills with their limestone crags, umbrella pines and 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 and the Chanoines monks both of whom welcome visitors. The tennis court, football and boules pitch are open to all and we are happy to lend you racquets and balls. The area is great for walking and mountain biking, river swimming and horse riding, all of which you can do from the doorstep.
Kingfishers can be seen from your open window and nightingales come back to the river bank to sing each year.
The river is dammed in the summer and is a popular place to swim.
Kate & Roger have lived in Lagrasse since 2001 and are on hand to give advice or suggest visits.

If you feel the need to leave our riverside garden there are castles to visit, the Mediterranean beckoning and 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
