Originally the priory of the Abbey of Lagrasse, this property was built in the 12th century and the priory chapel, with its meter thick walls, still stands today. In the early 18th century, the house was remodeled and vineyards, which now surround the estate, were further developed. The house was entirely renovated in 2000 as a country home. The road to the property follows an avenue of trees cut through the vineyards. The 'Cave' is situated on the left, while the principal house and surrounding walled gardens (2 acres) are on the right. The garden includes boxwood hedges and alleys, cedars, cypress, limes, roses, azaleas, oleanders, mimosas, French hibiscus, and other Mediterranean plants. There is a swimming pool (10m x 6m) and a terrace equipped with sun loungers and garden furniture. Wrought iron gates open and lead to a formal courtyard as well as the house. It is surrounded by stables (one of which is converted into a large games room), a 16th century tower (pigeonnier), the guardian's house, and the principal house with furnished terraces for alfresco dining.

Map

Located in the stunning countryside of the Corbières region of Languedoc, the property is 15 kilometers from the beautiful village of Lagrasse. Lagrasse is probably most famous for its abbey, St. Marie d’Orbieu, which you’ll have to visit given the history of this villa rental itself, but the scenery is simply breathtaking. From the abbey, you can cross the River Orbieu to the center of town and see all the surrounding vineyards, valleys, and mountains. You’ll reach plenty are cobbled streets hosting craft fairs, produce markets, shops, and cafes perfect for al fresco dining. A place you will have to see in person in order to truly feel how enchanting it is is Carcassonne, only a 20-minute drive from the property. This fortified village will allow you to take a step back in time as you walk along the narrow cobblestone alleys, stop in a chocolatier or candy store, and drink a café au lait in, what would appear to be, a place where one would go should they want to converse in secret. You must remember to visit the Basilica of Saint Nazaire, a cathedral from the 11th century often referred to as the “Jewel of the City,” and the Museum of the Middle Ages. The closest beaches are in Narbonne, a small town along the coast full of good pizzerias and dessert shops. For day trips definitely worth a little bit of a drive, visit Perpignan or Toulouse. Nearby Attractions: Lagrasse (abbey, shops, markets, craft fairs, cafes), Carcassonne (cobblestone alleys, shops, restaurants, cafes, ancient basilica, museums), Narbonne (beaches, restaurants, shops), Perpignan (museums, gardens, monthly festivals and celebrations), Toulouse. Toulouse: 120 km Perpignan: 100 km Narbonne: 48 km Carcassonne: 25 km Lagrasse: 15 km
