Owners were friendly, helpful and welcoming, gave loads of tips about the area. The apartment was spacious, clean and well equipped with a wonderfully large comfy bed in the main bedroom. Nice view over courtyard gardens and the hills behind. Lagrasse is a really interesting medieval village and looks stunning as you drive down to it with the view of river, bridges and the Abby! Set in scenic countryside in the Corbiere hills and only 50 mins to med coast and about half hour to Carcassonne. Also felt it was very good value for money.
Thank you Claire and Guy for a lovely stay with our 2 daughters. Your property is amazing, the apartments are clean, comfortable and beautiful with so many personal touches that made the stay special. The girls loved the pool and the garden and we enjoyed the BBQ and pizza oven. The location is fabulous with lots of great excursions nearby and the lovely town of Lagrasse on your doorstep with it's great amenities and the river beach. Super relaxing week, just wish we'd stayed longer!
This 13th Century mansion has been lovingly restored to create a remarkable holiday home in the historical and beautiful Cathar village of Lagrasse. The walled garden and swimming pool create an oasis and calmness, with restaurants, a boulangerie and craft shops a very short walk through the garden gates. The region has plenty to see and do - castles, monsteries, wine tasting, or for the more adventurous white water kayaking and zip wires! Claire and Guy, the owners, are a mine of information, and really do go the extra mile to welcome their guests. The highlights of our stay were the evenings spent in the garden eating Guy's barbecue banquet, and home made pizza (there is a wood fired pizza oven in the garden!), chatting to the other guests and drinking the local rosé into the early hours of the morning. We will definitely be back!
Stayed for a week late August in the 2 bed Greenier apartment which was lovely with an Emperor size bed (new one on me) in the main bedroom. A/C was very efficient too especially as it was very hot early on. Guy and Claire are the lovely owners and make you feel very welcome without being intrusive. One night we all had a BBQ together which was great. Lagrasse is a medieval village with 5 or 6 restaurants to choose from (as well as being able to use the BBQ and kitchen), all walking distance and reasonably priced (€30 per head average with wine). This is a chilled out place and very relaxing.
Divine as always. This is our second time in the Grenier - this time with one more child. The apartment is a great set up for a family with the 2 bedrooms/bathrooms. The garden provides a safe adventure playground and the pool provides hours of fun. Lagrasse is a gem and if we weren't so far away - we'd live here. Guy and Claire would never be rid of us. Can't say enough for this splendid location and these delightful hosts. Never wanted to leave. (next time we'll leave the kids behind and stay in the pool studio.)
Fantastic place, and every practical aspect considered. Clearly, Guy and Claire have put their heart and sort into the renovations of this place.
Magical communal courtyard, ideal for enjoying barbecues and drinks with friends from the neighbouring Arch, Patio or Pool studios. Hence great for 2-3 families together. My favourite the beautiful pink oleander.
The pool is small but perfect for cooling off and we found Ribault to be our favourite for a river swimming spot.
Lagrasse is breathtaking and beautiful with super little shops, the pottery studio being my special favourite. Local honey and wine for sale.
Great boulangerie despite the grumpy vendeuse!
Guy and Claire fabulous hosts and recommended as well as booked places for dinner, most within walking distance.
Couldn't ask for more considerate and thoughtful hosts and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lagrasse and Guy and Claire's place.
If we pass through this part of France, we will certainly be staying here again.

We are just returning home following a 3 week stay in the Grenier Apt and what a wonderful experience it was. From the moment we rang the bell at the gate, greeted by Guy, Claire and 'Chilli', our holiday there was first class. Lagrasse is a good base for exploring neighbouring villages and places of interest and our accommodation in the Grenier made it all the better. We had a very spacious and comfortable apartment equipped with everything we needed, not only for ourselves but two additional guests and friends who joined us. We got the opportunity to view the other apartments, (Arch Apt and the Garden Studio), all of a very high standard. Guy and Claire have put their heart and soul into the property and it shows (can't wait to see the new pizza oven on completion). Their hospitality is exceptional, they are a mine of local information and extremely helpful and good natured. We plan to return and recommend them to family and friends.
