We had a wonderful, relaxing, week-long holiday in the Garden Studio. The studio is part of a restored medieval house, with glass doors opening out onto a walled garden with bbq areas and a pool.
No request was any trouble, and we felt very welcome and at ease right away. Guy, the owner of the property, gave us great advice on places to visit and things to do in the village and wider Carcassonne area, taking us off the beaten guidebook trail.
Lagrasse itself is a beautiful, medieval village - and has plenty of services and amenities - bakery, restaurants, street side cafes, regional food and wine store, pharmacy, post office etc. .
Lagrasse is located about 30 mins drive south from Carcassonne. Making it a convenient jumping off spot for the Cathar region. And the coast is only 40 mins drive.
The things we loved most about this property were the hospitality of the owner, and the beautiful, comfortable surroundings of both the house and the garden. Off street parking to the rear of the property was a big plus. Slight downside is that Lagrasse doesn't have a big supermarket. Nearest supermarket is approx 20 mins drive. Village shop was good for most things, but supermarket is a little cheaper.
