Comfortable 4 bedroom house sleeping 9 people above beautiful Lagrasse
- english, french
Angele and I have owned our house in Lagrasse for 30 years and had many wonderful family holidays with our children and friends
Angele purchased this House in 1989
Why Angele chose Lagrasse
A unique combination of seclusion and close access to the delights and sophistication of beautiful but lively Lagrasse
What makes this House unique
Roc de Cagaliere is unique. Within 5 minutes walk of the village, the house is set in an ancient olive grove away from the bustle, with a truly magnificent view over the village and the Orbieu river valley. Sitting on the terrace or around the pool looking out over the red tiled roofs of the village, the abbey and the vineyards is a great experience, especially as the sun goes down, and one that thrills us in the same way it did 30 years ago when we first came to the house. We know of no other house in Lagrasse that has quite the same qualities and it's there for you to enjoy. Leave the car at home and wander into the village to enjoy its shops, restaurants and bars but escape back to the seclusion of our house in the trees.

The house is homely and relaxing. Sitting on the front terrace in the evening sun with a glass of local wine was wonderful. The pool was great and the numerous sun umbrellas were greatly appreciated by all. The best thing about the house was the proximity of the village with all its lovely restaurants and interesting shops which meant our party of eight were able to wander off independently in pairs and meet up for lunches and dinners. There were also some great walks up to the cave and the Roc on the days when it wasn't so hot.
Lagrasse August 2019
We had a wonderful week at this house, it is vey well equipped and spacious and the pool area is immaculate. The village of Lagrasse is beautiful, as is the whole area. Plenty to do and see for all ages.
Cleanliness was generally good except for one thing....waste bin hadn't been emptied in the shower room and there were some rather unpleasant deposits therein...
I don't think the outdoor furniture had been wiped down in a while or any sweeping performed and the barbecue certainly hadn't been cleaned by the last guests..
Suggest that the path/steps are lit -bit tricky after dark even with the light from one's mobile...
The country-side is simply lovely....we enjoyed Narbonne in particular (market is fabulous) and it was wonderfully quiet...
Thank you for the review of your stay. We do apologise for the oversight by Aline, our femme de menage in not clearing the waste bin. This was unacceptable and we have spoken to her about it.
We do ask that the previous guests clean the barbeque after use. Unfortunately our gardener would normally check this (as well as other tidying up around the garden) but he has been taken seriously ill and hasn't been able to do his work recently. We do hope you otherwise enjoyed your stay in Lagrasse.
Traumhafte Ferien in bezaubernder Atmosphäre
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
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.
Séjour sans surprise
Les informations portées sur l'annonce sont conformes à la réalité des lieux. La proximité du village nous a permis de nous y rendre tous les jours sans emprunter notre véhicule. La piscine est un atout essentiel surtout en période de canicule.
A few minutes walk from the house, medieval Lagrasse is ranked one of the most beautiful villages in France with its 8th century abbey, ancient bridge, cobbled streets and old market. It also has an excellent selection of stylish restaurants, cafes and craft shops to enjoy as well as the village tabac, alimentation and boulangerie. 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. Supermarket shopping and a colourful weekly market are available in nearby Lezignan.
There are many options for walking, hiking and cycling in the rugged Hautes Corbieres hills as well as visiting the dramatic Cathar sites such as Minerve, Queribus and Peyrepertuse, a short drive away.
The Roman town of Narbonne with canal, cathedral, museum, excellent art gallery and a daily market in its beautiful art nouveau halles, and also the incredible medieval citadel of Carcassonne are both only 40 minutes.
The Mediterranean with soft sandy beaches, fish restaurants and various resorts with water amusements are in easy reach.
Other Activities include wine tasting, horse riding and white water rafting (in season)
