Holiday Rental House
This medieval house is situated on the banks of the river Orbieu in beautiful and listed village Lagrasse. It provides not only an ideal base to explore this rich and historic region but also acts as a destination in itself. THE INDEPENDANT RENTAL APARTMENT/GITE has a magnificent terrace which overlooks the iconic medieval stone bridge and the hills across the river. It provides the ideal space to spend your days and evenings. Watch the sun setting over the hills opposite while you have drinks and dinner cooked on the BBQ. The internal courtyard always stays cool and shady, even on the hottest summer days. Step out of the back of the house and go for a paddle in the river or from the front door to find yourself in the heart of this special village.

About the neighbourhood
Lagrasse is famous for its abbey founded in 799 by Charlamagne. Local attractions are numerous and during the summer months the whole area is alive with fetes and other village events. Out of the summer season the village is a perfect place to spend time exploring the garrigue hills, sampling delicious local produce, cycling, canooing, horse riding or simply relaxing on the terrace overlooking the river.
How to get there
Accessible, with Ryanair from Carcassone, only 40 minutes away. Beziers and Perpignan 1hr away, or Montpellier and Toulouse, with Easy Jet and British Airways, only 90 minutes. Ryan air also fly to Girona which is approximately 2hrs drive. Hertz or Europcar for car hire. We are also happy to arrange a pick up for you at the airport. Price on application.
