Traumhafte Ferien in bezaubernder Atmosphäre

  • 5 of 5

Lagrasse ist ein sehr pittoresker Ort mit teils mittelalterlicher Bausubstanz; die Besichtigung der Abtei ist ein Muss.

Bäcker und mehrere Restaurants sind vorhanden und haben uns nie enttäuscht.

Das Haus von Angèle und Roger ist sehr empfehlenswert; man merkt, dass es ein bewohntes Haus, nicht nur ein Ferien-Objekt ist. Es ist sehr gemütlich, insbesondere das Wohnzimmer. Die Infos sind von Roger sehr gründlich und liebevoll zusammengestellt. Der Pool hat uns viele schöne Stunden beschert,

beeindruckend, wie sauber und gepflegt.

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und 3 erholsame Wochen dort verbracht. Wir können das Haus weiter empfehlen.

Lovely property, stunning setting

  • 5 of 5

The house was as described, clean, comfortable and in good condition with lots of "home comforts" such as toys and videos for the kids (and a washing machine with powder!) The owners were very organised and helpful, and there was info provided for everything to do with the house and loads of books, maps and leaflets of the area. The pool was great and enjoyed every day, leaving the cover on overnight meant it was not too cold even in September. The photos cannot do justice to the stunning views and lovely backdrop of the house.

The town was an easy 5 mins walk, and the (small) shop supplied the basics on the first day, there were loads of eateries. It was a very pretty town, and we all had lots of fun swimming in the river.

We were 3 generations, and we all loved the place. I would not hesitate to recommend this rental.

Gute Lage

  • 4 of 5

Schöne diverse Sitzplätze je nach Sonnenstand, sehr schöner Pool!

Wir waren 2 befreundete Paare, hatten genug Platz!

Einziges Manko: die kleine Dusche (mit Duschvorhang!) für ein Paar im Gegensatz zum grosszügigen Bad neben dem anderen Schlafzimmer!

Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in Lagrasse fussläufig erreichbar, für Grosseinkäufe Lezignan zu empfehlen!

Traumhaus für entspannten Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir (zwei Familien) haben im Haus von Angele & Roger zwei traumhafte Ferienwochen verbracht. Das Anwesen ist in einem Top-Zustand und jeder findet hier seinen Platz zum Entspannen.

Das Haus und die Einrichtung ist wie beschrieben und in jedem Fall funktionell und liebevoll in den Details, es fehlt eigentlich an nichts. Die Küche ist komplett ausgestattet, und es hat Spaß gemacht, dort gemeinsam zu kochen.

Zahlreiche Bücher, Reiseführer und Bildbände über die Region sind ebenso vorhanden, wie auch Videos und Gesellschaftsspiele (allerdings alles in englisch). Bei Fragen oder Problemen wurde vom Vermieter schnell geantwortet, es ist aber auch ein ausführlicher Haus-Guide vorhanden. Darin auch Tipps zur Freizeitgestaltung oder auch zur Weinauswahl.

Das nahe gelegene, mittelalterliche Lagrasse war in unserem Fall nicht nur zum Baguette kaufen da. Gleich zwei Musikfestivals sorgten für abendliche Abwechslung, und ein Spaziergang durch die engen Gassen lohnt zu jeder Tageszeit.

In der näheren Umgebung kann man auch kleinere Wanderungen unternehmen. Zum Roc da Cagaliere, dem Felsen oberhalb des Hauses zum Beispiel. Von dort hat man eine schöne Sicht auf Lagrasse. Auch nach Ribaute, zu den Cascaden des Orbieu, sind es nur 3,5 Kilometer.

Wem es in Carcassonne zu voll ist, dem empfehle ich das Dorf Minerve. Ebenfalls sehenswert sind die Cascaden der Verdouble in der Nähe von Duilhac-sous-Peyrepertuse (Ausschilderung 'Moulin de Ribaute' folgen)

Wir können diese Haus jedenfalls sehr empfehlen.

Cozy house with a wonderful view

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house in July 2014, and are very happy with our stay. We were two families and a total of nine people and it was perfect for us! The house was nicely decorated, clean and functional. It was like staying in someone's home! There was, for example, plenty of spices, etc. in the cabinets. The pool area was nice and completely private. There were also two patios where you had a great view of Lagrasse. It was only a few minutes walk to the "main road" where there were several cozy restaurants, a pharmacy, a bakery (open 7-20) and a shop. In the village, there was also the opportunity to buy handicrafts such as pottery and art. The entire village of Lagrasse is magically beautiful! A morning walk along the river is good for the soul! Just below the house was a football field and our sons went down there every night and played. There were also other children and they formed teams and had fun. The shop in town has a rather small range so you have to drive about 15-20 minutes to a big supermarket. We were also to visit some wineries nearby and they were easy to find! We had (both adults and children) a wonderful holiday and we can really recommend this house and Lagrasse!

Our house is set in an old olive grove overlooking medieval Lagrasse, ranked one of the most beautiful villages in France. Sitting on the front terrace or round the pool, shaded by olive and cypress trees,you have lovely views of Lagrasse, 8th century abbey, vineyards, and the River Orbieu valley to the hills beyond. It is only 5 minutes walk into the village with its shops and reasonably priced restaurants in season,as well as a cafe, tabac, baker and a small pizza shop. There is a good floodlit public tennis court and swimming, fishing and boating for children in the Orbieu river with a waterfall and swimming/diving area at neighbouring Ribaute. There are many options for walking and cycling, wine tasting and visiting historic sites. The Roman town of Narbonne with a daily market and the medieval citadel of Carcassonne are only 45 minutes away and various Mediterranean resorts in easy reach. Supermarket shopping and a colourful weekly market is only 15 mins drive away in Lezignan.
