It suited us perfectly having all the facilities we would ever need. The actual Apartment has been built and furnished to a very high standard and above all it was immaculately clean! The rest of the property is stunning and makes for a perfect base to explore the region. Our hosts, Guy and Claire, were very personable and couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. I cant recommend Holidays in Lagrasse enough.

We cannot wait to go again and are now saving our pennies. Only one complaint: we did not want to go home! The apartments are cosy in the winter and cool in the summer. Claire and Guy are really the perfect hosts and made our holiday, again, something we shall not forget. The village is great and if you want a lazy day, a walk round the abbeyand river with lunch at one of cafes/restaurants cannot be beaten. Thank you Claire and Guy, we hope to see you again.
