Ribaute, Aude, Occitanie
A house sleeping up to 10 people, only a stone throw away from Lagrasse. With a clear river where locals from the surrounding villages come and swim, only 100m away from the front door and suitable for children...wild swimming at its best.

VIVRE LA VIE is a lovely newly converted old barn situated in a beautiful wine village called Ribaute, which is located in the South East of France and only 20 minutes from Carcassonne. The crème de la crème of the property is the 360 degree roof terrace where you can enjoy a BBQ or watch the sun set over the numerous vineyards surrounding the Villa.

A PERFECT LOCATION to explore South West France and enjoy all the activities the region has to offer like cycling, waking, wine tasting and wild swimming to name just a few activities to keep you busy during your stay at Vivre la Vie.

What a fantastic gem ! We stayed in the 3 bedrooms apartment. Lovely space with a kitchen upstairs with open living room . We stayed off season and the wood burner was really appreciated in the evening . The house is super comfortable and elegant ! We highly recommend it !

We really enjoyed our stay at Vivre la Vie. The apartment is tastefully furnished and very comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. The bedrooms are a good size, there are 2 bathrooms in the main unit, access to a washer and dryer, and the wifi functions well. The view from the living and dining area looks over pink tiled houses, with rolling hills in the background. The view from the rooftop terrace is even nicer!...
