                  Chilling in Lagrasse

                  5 of 5
                  We arrived 8.30 on the Saturday. We "dumped" our stuff and were able to catch a meal at a restaurant recommended by Guy, it was very good. The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable and had very good llight. Everything we needed was in situ, although we did not do a lot of cooking. Lagrasse has several cafes/restaurants to choose from and there is a lovely small bar/restaurant in Labout5 minutes by car) where you can get a delicious lunch before going for a swim in the river. Claire and Guy are fantasic hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. There are loads of places to visit and brochures/leaflets are there so you do not have to go looking. Good visits: 1900 and the Grand Moulin (Lezignan) wine tasting, Carcasonne, Trebes, Sete, Narbonne (market), Narbonne and Guissan beaches, and the beach at St. Pierre La Mer and many more. Not so good: Perpignon (dirty and appears to be full of dog poo), Supermarkets in Lezignan are good, Carrefor is the cheapest but there is also a Netto and a very good buther opposite. Beware of the rule, give way to the right in Fabrezan, cars shoot out like bullets from the little side roads and there is a large tree by the crossing from behind which people can jump out in order to cross the road. PS. If you visit the midd.le of Toulouse be aware that signs for the airport disappear - we went round the same roundabout 6 times before making a guess which way to go. There is still a lot to do, which we did not manage to fit in during our 2-week stay. We would really recommend this accommodation to anyone and hope to go back some time.

                  Perfect, relaxing, tranquil

                  5 of 5
                  A lovely, homely little oasis. The Owners Claire and Guy are so friendly and knowledgable about the area. We hired bikes from just around the corner, which is the best way to see this area, the roads are so quiet and safe, lots of river swimming in crystal clear waters. The local restaurants and cafes are brilliant never had a bad meal. Not a touristy area either(didn't feel it when we were there end of school holidays). Our apartment was the garden studio which was perfect, very french, clean and well equipped. Definately recommend this as a place to stay and Lagrasse as an area to explore and enjoy.

                  Wonderful

                  5 of 5
                  My husband found Holidays in Lagrasse while initially searching for accommodation near a beach and, although Lagrasse is not on the coast, we chose the accommodation based on the photos and other reviews. We were not disappointed! We're a family of three with a 12 year old daughter and we stayed in the two-bedroomed Arch apartment. It is a well-equipped apartment and has a lovely mix of old stonework and arched windows with bright, spacious and very clean rooms. Air conditioning units in the livingroom and both bedrooms kept us cool and was a real bonus! We loved eating our meals in the beautiful and peaceful courtyard and our wonderful hosts, Guy and Claire, organised both a barbecue evening and a pizza evening where we chatted with other guests while sipping delicious (local) Corbières wines. There is also a compact swimming pool which is perfect for cooling off on a hot day. The mediaeval village of Lagrasse is so lovely and doesn't feel touristy or crowded. It is also well placed for visits to Narbonne and the coast and also Carcassonne. We even managed a day trip to Aqualand at St Cyprien which is fun for children and teenagers (and grownups!) There are so many things to see and do in this area and we only scratched the surface - next time I'd like to hire bicycles and cycle by the Canal du Midi. I've been waxing lyrical about this place since we've been home and we're now planning a return visit next summer. Would I recommend this accommodation? Definitely! Thank you Guy and Claire!
