This property is exceptional in every way. Our hosts made us feel so welcome. The village is delightful and there are similarly picturesque villages to be found nearby. Set in the heart of Cathar country, Lagrasse is a perfect base from which to explore several of the Cathar castles and related abbeys.
Our accommodation was pristinely clean, with ample facilities for cooking and clothes washing/drying. The communal gardens are beautiful and the pool gives a welcome chance to cool-off in hot summer days.
The property is within a two minute walk of shops and restaurants and the nearby medieval abbey is little more than a ten minute stroll away.
I cannot praise this holiday property highly enough.
Laurence made us feel extremely welcome. We settled into the comfortable apartment immediately and were able to enjoy the beautiful surroundings (vineyards, private garden and swimming pool). The apartment was as descibed, spotlessly clean, tastefully furnished with all the facilities that we required for our stay.
In particular, we were fascinated by the tour of the wine making facility and Laurence's explanation of the history of the chateau, her family connections with the area and how her grandfather changed from a Roquefort cheese manufacturer to a winemaker.
Overall, we had a very relaxing week in the region and we were in easy reach of beautiful towns such as Carcassonne and Narbonne. In addition, the local town, Lezignan Corbiere was well served by good supermarkets, restuarants and shops.
Very many thanks to Laurence for making our stay so memorable.
