A truly unique, light & airy riverside dwelling set within the walls of this lovingly renovated medieval house. The cool colours of the ancient stone walls combine with the thoughtful renovation with its high ceilings and quiet atmosphere to create a very calm and relaxing space for your holiday. The house has direct access onto the riverside garden and is just a few steps from the covered market square at the heart of the village. There are 2 terraces. One of about 90m2 which overlooks the river and the hills opposite. Part of it is covered to provide shade. It is equipped with a BBQ, a sink, sun loungers, a sofa and a large dining table. Access to the river is possible from the courtyard. The other opens directly onto the kitchen with a view of the shaded courtyard below.

The cool colours of the ancient stone walls combine with the thoughtful renovation with its high ceilings and quiet atmosphere to create a very calm and relaxing space for your holiday. The house has direct access onto the riverside garden and is just a few steps from the covered market square at the heart of the village. There are 2 terraces. One of about 90m2 which overlooks the river and the hills opposite. Part of it is covered to provide shade. It is equipped with a BBQ, a sink, sun loungers, a sofa and a large dining table. Access to the river is possible from the courtyard. The other opens directly onto the kitchen with a view of the shaded courtyard below. The apartment is situated on the first floor with the exceptionally large terrace above - hence the name of the apartment. Sunset views and alfresco cooking facilities overlooking the river, the 12th century hump-back bridge & hills opposite. Access is via the cobbled shady courtyard and up the spiral staircase. If you have any concerns about accessibility due to the mobility of any member in your party, please contact me first and I'll talk you through. The accommodation is for 6/7 but please ask if you are a party of 7 first. There are 3 bedrooms. Each has its own bath or shower room and good, comfortable mattresses with top quality linens. There are 2 double bedrooms. One has the option of being either 2 twins or a large double depending on your preference. These 2 rooms are on the riverside so you can fall asleep to the gentle sounds of the water trickling by. The 3rd bedroom is a twin & looks onto the courtyard. You can be part of nearby activities or enjoy quiet relaxing time on the largest terrace in the village! Lagrasse is genuinely lovely & unspoilt. There are several excellent restaurants, a couple of bars, a baker, Pharmacy, Post Office, 2 doctors, a newsagent & numerous local artisan shops & galleries. Swim in the river, go for a leisurely walk in the hills nearby, a bike ride, sample oysters freshly plucked from the sea, or simply relax on the terrace & watch the sun go down. Linen, towels, hair dryer & iron are included. Check-in from 4pm. Check-out 10am Smoking not allowed Off-site parking facilities only 3 minutes from the house. *********************** YOUNG CHILDREN ARE WELCOME BUT THIS MUST BE AGREED WITH THE OWNER FIRST.
