Ramparts and Riverside Ap't in Aude, a cottage in Languedoc-Roussillon: Ramparts and Riverside Ap't exterior

With a delightful Balcony overlooking the river beautifully decorated throughout

The newest addition to House la France is the Ramparts apartment.
Accessed through the cobbled courtyard this has been specifically designed for couples, and is the ideal romantic retreat year round. It has large windows which overlook the river and Bridge, with a large double bedroom. The balcony is actually part of a tower which was discovered whilst renovating the apartment. There are handmade terracotta tiles on the floors and the furnishings are antique, there is also some original art some of which were done by a very charming local artist.
The courtyard remains cool and shaded giving you a place to retreat from the midday sun.
So no matter what time of year I look forward to welcoming you to one of the most relaxing places you will ever find for your next French holiday.

Lagrasse is part of the Les Plus Beaux Villages de France association ("The most beautiful villages of France") it is about 30 km southeast of Carcassonne. It lies in the valley of the River Orbieu, at the foot of the Pyrenees.
The region is renowned for the wine produced in the surrounding hills this is the Corbières wine region, the largest wine-producing region in France.
The two highlights of the village are the eponymous Abbey and the bridges, although the narrow medieval streets of the village itself are also very attractive, and remains of the town walls can still be seen.

The city of Carcassonne not far away is well worth a visit and it is famous for the Cité de Carcassonne, a medieval fortress restored by the theorist and architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc in 1853 and added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1997. Consequently, Carcassonne greatly profits from tourism but also counts manufacture and wine-making as some of its other key economic sectors.
The fortified city itself consists essentially of a concentric design of two outer walls with 53 towers and barbicans to prevent attack by siege engines. The castle itself possesses its own drawbridge and ditch leading to a central keep. The walls consist of towers built over quite a long period.[3] One section is Roman and is notably different from the medieval walls with the tell-tale red brick layers and the shallow pitch terracotta tile roofs. One of these towers housed the Catholic Inquisition in the 13th Century and is still known as "The Inquisition Tower". Today there is a museum "Musée de la Torture", which shows some of the original torture equipment employed by the Catholic Church.
