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


Please see the many reviews on Tripadvisor

The Ramparts & Riverside apartment, accessed through the cobbled courtyard has been specifically designed with couples in mind. It is the ideal romantic retreat year round. It has large windows which overlook the river and the iconic hump back bridge, with a large double bedroom. The balcony is actually part of a tower which was discovered whilst renovating the apartment which has been lovingly & thoughtfully decorated throughout.

The courtyard always 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, 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.

Two highlights of the village are the eponymous Abbey and the bridges, although the narrow, picturesque streets of the village itself are also very attractive, & remains of the town walls can still be seen.

The Cité de Carcassonne, not far away, is well worth a visit. Famous for it's medieval fortress restored by the theorist and architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc in 1853 & added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1997.

The Cité de Carcassonne, not far away is well worth a visit. Famous for it's medieval fortress restored by the theorist and architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc in 1853 & added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1997.

The fortified city itself consists essentially of a concentric design of two outer walls with 53 towers to prevent attack. The castle itself possesses its own drawbridge & ditch leading to a central keep. One section is Roman & is notably different from the medieval walls with the tell-tale red brick layers & the shallow pitch terracotta tile roofs. One of these towers housed the Catholic Inquisition in the 13th Century & is still known as "The Inquisition Tower". Today the "Musée de la Torture" shows some of the original torture equipment employed by the Catholic Church!

After making a reservation you will be asked to complete a Booking Form which I will send you separately.
There will be a Damage Deposit in the region of £500 due shortly prior to your arrival. All derails are in the Booking Form.

Please do ask if you have any queries. I'm very happy to help of course.

Looking forward to meeting you...
