About Albina Suwier

Hello I'm Albina owner of this beautiful house since 2011.

Albina Suwier purchased this villa in 2011

Why Albina Suwier chose World

L'Audela is the perfect base. Lagrasse is a very beautiful and idyllic medieval village, located at the junction of the valleys of the Orbieu and Alsou. For many years the village belongs to the "most beautiful villages in France 'a prestigious label.

Sights:

1 - Abbey Sainte-Marie-d'Orbieu called Lagrasse Abbey

2 - Vieux Pont - a stone bridge from the 12th century

3 - Place de Halle

4 - Maison du Patrimoine

5 - Village picturesque

The different shops in the village (bakery, grocery, newsagent, cafe, restaurants, pharmacy, police, ...) are less than 200 meters from the house.

Here is a selection of the main Cathar Castles and Abbeys. La Cité de Carcassonne, Chateau de Montsegur, Château de Saissac, Abbaye d'Alet-les-Bains and Abbaye de Fontfroide; All are worth another visit! For lovers of "The Da Vinci Code" by Dan Brown, do not forget to visit Rennes le Chateau and immerse in one of the biggest mysteries of the Aude.

Lovely large house with all amenities. Fabulous views. Nice walks nearby. Close enough to Carcassonne to allow visit and some Cathar castles nearby.

Views to Die For

  • 5 of 5

The view from the house is just amazing. Even our dog enjoyed just sitting on the decking and looking out over the hills. It was so lovely that we hardly stayed inside the house much, we just lived outside. The house is about a 5 minute walk into the village, but about 10 minutes back as it is uphill.

We had a bit of a shock when we first arrived as I hadn't realised a form had been sent to me saying that we had to pay 130 Euros in cash to the couple who clean the house. This was quite a chunk of our cash to hand over at the beginning of the holiday, so make sure you keep an eye out for this form.

After we'd got over the shock of that we settled in to a very relaxing holiday. The size of the pool is really good. The kitchen is geared up to cook anything on earth. There are so many gadgets in there we didn't know what half of them were for! The bedrooms are nicely decorated.

We did a bit of sightseeing and went into Carcassonne, Narbonne and a safari park which was about 45 minutes drive away. The rest of the time we just lazed by the pool. We had dinner in the village one evening which was quite funny as they hardly spoke any English and we hardly spoke any French. We had a lovely meal there though.

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday. It is perfect for that.

Lagrasse is a very picturesque medieval fortified village in the ancient Cathar area, between Carcassonne and Narbonne. Lagrasse is one of the Most Beautiful Villages(Plus Beaux Villages) of France , a well-merited honor.

Key sites in Lagrasse are the old village, with a 14th-century covered market and cobblestone streets, a lovely 12th-century stone bridge, many medieval house and some of the ancient fortifications and, of course, the 8th-century Benedictine Lagrasse Abbey.

Most of the terrace cafés and restaurants are on the wide and shady Bvd de la Promenade that stretches along the eastern edge of the fortified old village. The few village shops are mostly located along the boulevard as well, although there are a few boutiques in the heart of the old village, at the Place de la Halle.

The narrow medieval streets of the old village are great for wandering and exploring. They're full of historical old houses, but we particularly liked the different colored shutters on some of these ancient buildings.

The large church in the center of the old village, pressed in tightly by the ancient houses, is the 14th-century Eglise St-Michel. This Romanesque Gothic style church was built between 1359 and 1398. It's tall, square bell tower is enclosed, and has an internal spiral stairway.

La Halle, covered market in the Ancient Covered Market

The covered market (les halles) is a lovely structure of eight stone pillars and a wood-frame and tile roof, built in 1315. The covered market sits in the center of a square bordered by medieval building and completely paved in cobblestones. Prior to 1315, the village market was located on the left bank of the Orbieu and outside the fortified walls.

Lagrasse Bridges

Lagrasse has three bridges across the Orbieu river that separates the village from the abbey. The oldest and most picturesque is the 12th-century arched stone bridge (le pont vieux), with its cobblestone roadway and a nice view of the village from its top.

North of le pont vieux, the new bridge (le pont neuf) takes the D3 road northwest from Lagrasse towards Carcassonne. Although "new", this bridge is also a stone arched bridge, made from while stone blocks, and fits well with the medieval village. It also offers a great view of the Vieux Pont.

The third "bridge" is actually a very low dam with walkway across the river at the upstream end of the village. This makes a wide and shallow area great for wading and swimming, and is a very popular summertime place for picnicking.
