The space

Lagrasse is designated one of France's most beautiful villages and is perfectly situated for all manner of beautiful walks: river and gorge, vines and olives, garigue and forest, mountain and valley. With 3 bars, fine epicerie, boulangerie, galleries, craft workshops, six restaurants and wine galore, there is little need to venture elsewhere. However, with it’s proximity to the autoroute, the beaches of the Med, Carcassonne, Toulouse, Narbonne, Perpignan, Montpellier and the Camargue are in easy reach - even Barcelona is only 3 hours away. Take the twisty roads through the glorious gorges of the Corbières and the astonishing Cathar castles are on the doorstep
The river, dammed in the summer to provide exquisite swimming, is bordered by the Abbey and the medieval waterfront and is crossed by 2 bridges one a fine Roman bridge.
The summer months are very animated with various music festivals, piano concerts,folk dancing, theatre,circus,pottery & book fairs...firework display from the old bridge on 13th July followed by Bastille day celebrations with a much bigger display on the 14th in Carcassonne- 40 mins away.

My house is in the centre of Lagrasse, a former hotel - 3 double rooms available for rental with shared bathroom, 2 wc & kitchenette, breakfast not served but the basics are provided eg coffee, tea, sugar,butter,jam & is possible to cook meals in the evening - the kitchenette has a fridge,hob,oven,grill,toaster,kettle.

Free Internet & calls to Uk, US, Europe landlines available.

Here is the lagrasse (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page description:


Tucked into the heart of the Corbières in southern France, Lagrasse attracts an extraordinary variety of residents, complementing its salt-of-the-earth locals. The tiny population of 630 people live in this medieval listed village surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, its backdrop dominated by an 8th century working Abbey. Situated in a valley surrounded by Mediterranean hillsides full of rosemary, thyme and cyprus trees, the river Orbieu meandering through the village, Lagrasse attracts thousands of visitors each year, some of whom never leave, falling in love with this picture postcard example of rural France and changing their lives to allow them to pursue their dream.
Lagrasse is one of those ‘centres of the universe’; you can be drinking in a bar in LA and meet someone who’s been to Lagrasse; Manhattan is full of Lagrasse lovers; from Nepal to Cape Town, Moscow to Rio de Janeiro, visitors come from all over the world, attracted by that intangible ‘pull’ that Lagrasse quietly exerts.

Lagrasse is a hidden gem and Shona is a terrific host. The flat in right in the middle of town and gets some lovely afternoon sunshine. Also having a kitchen is brilliant. We bought food in the Saturday market and cook it there.

Very practical and economic, but also comfortable and well-equipped. For all those aiming to make a stop in this magic little village, Shona offers the best budget accommodation. We had a lovely time in Lagrasse and hope to be back soon!

Shona left excellent instructions on how to find the house and directions for if she was not in. So there were no issues. The town of Lagrasse is worth a visit, the Abbey provides a perfect backdrop to this small french town. We had an excellent dinner out (Shona has a list of recommended places on the wall) and went for an early morning swim in the river before we headed off. Would recommend to anyone wanting to see this part of the world and would go back!

We secured a private room for our daughter and her new husband -for the first month, and then upgrade the second month to a private studio...Here is their report on their experience with Shona! "Shona was a wonderful hostess made everything clean and bright and incredibly pleasant stay. There was nothing that we needed that she did not provide or accommodate us with. She even helped us figure out our transportation details, coordinated taxi rides, gave us insight into nearby attractions, gave us the free use of her phone when we needed it, and helped coordinate a vineyard tour for us. I can't speak more highly about Shona as a hostess. She was phenomenal and respectful of us, with a generous and flexible attitude. We are in the middle of an 8 week stay on Lagrasse and have LOVED every second!!!!" So our "Thanks" to Shona as well - she has given us the gift of "giving a gift" to an obviously very happy couple!!! Blessings and love to you Shona! -The Followwills

Shona's place is comfortable and attractive and provides everything you need. It is really handy having a kitchenette available to store fridge stuff and prepare your own meals - and we were very happy to go and buy our own patisserie for breakfast! The location in a narrow street means that you do easily hear neighbours, their dogs etc in the mornings, but this is no doubt a feature of Lagrasse itself rather than the particular B&B. Would definitely go back for this price. Thanks Shona!
