    Property description
    Condo/Apartment – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
    The Riverside gite is on the banks of the river Orbieu with wonderful views to Lagrasse's 12th century stone bridge. This luxury 2 bedroom apartment has been incorporated into what were the medieval ramparts of the village.

    Its prime position on the river gives the gite a wonderful feeling of being in the countryside, with the sound of the river to lull you to sleep at night whilst 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.
    For availability of Market and the Balcony riverside gite visit owners website.

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

    Additional amenities & feature info
    The house has evolved since its 11th century beginnings and renovated to reveal its history exposing the 17th century timber ceilings, medieval stone arches and terracotta floors. The exterior stone wall is a metre thick and the windows extremely large, giving you lots of sun light and a terrific view over the river to the Mediterranean hillside.
    You can watch for the kingfisher from the window or read a book in the riverside garden.

    In the Middle Ages, the mansion was two separate houses divided by a cobbled lane. The houses were combined in the 19th century - the cobbled lane was replaced by a grand stairwell and hallway with a vast glass skylight. It is this that separates the Riverside gite from the Market gite and the Balcony gite.

    The Riverside gite is on the first floor. The o...

A lovely place to spend an evening was the abbey which had a little coffee shop/ bar with tables outside. Very laid back, friendly atmosphere. Another favourite way to spend an evening was to cross the river and walk along the path between vine yards on one side and what looked like allotments on the other. The only downside to... more

In their handsome riverside merchants house, Kate & Roger have lovingly created stylish yet comfortable well-considered accommodation. Staying in the Balcony Gite we felt little need to go far and spent lazy afternoons on the secluded river beach below then wandered the medieval streets at night. But our most surreal experience had to be encountering almost ghostly monks singing in... more

Wow again as we entered the entrance to our giite with ancient floor tiles, lofty ceilings and wonderful old windows. The kitchen is very well equipped with all you need and the sofas in the... more
