The national heritage village of Lagrasse in the Corbieres region boasts a 12th century abbey, an ancient bridge, market place and glorious views over surrounding vineyards. Our house is in the middle of the village, within walking distance of several restaurants and markets and accessible to some of the best cycling and walking in the Aude region as well as beaches along the river. It is a beautifully refurbished three hundred year old house with three bedrooms, library/study with high-speed internet, walled garden, fully equipped kitchen-dining room, a beautiful stone-walled living room with tapestries, grand piano and many original features. It takes thirty minute drive to Narbonne, nearby Mediterranean beaches and the historic town of Carcassone, an hour from the Spanish border and ninety minutes from Toulouse, the nearest international airport. Ryanair flies into Carcassone and Perpignan, both 45 minutes away by car. We are located on the Route des Cathares near the canal du midi.
The house has an excellent Yamaha grand piano which the owner is only too happy for guests to play. This includes children under supervision. Robert runs a five day piano festival in Lagrasse in July and would especially welcome professionals looking for a quiet place to practise for their next recital or learn crucial repertory. The house thick stone walls offer total insulation.
