The Terrace Apartment is our newest addition this spring (2018). We have renovated and created a bright and modern apartment with its own private terrace. From the pretty walled garden a private staircase leads you onto your own large private terrace with BBQ and beautiful views across the garden.
From the terrace you enter the bright modern kitchen with woodburner and beyond a lounge all open plan. From the kitchen, stairs take you to the second floor where you will find the Master bedroom with a handmade oak kingsize bed with fantastic views of the Roc d'Caligare. The master bedroom also has its own en-suite with large shower, sink and toilet.
The twin bedroom also has views of the Roc d'Caligare and has its own en-suite with shower, sink and toilet.
The apartment is fully air- conditioned and has free wifi.
The apartment also includes access to the communal garden. The garden contains 3 x BBQ areas, a pizza oven, a recent addition in 2015, 5 terraces, a grassy lawn and to top it all off a solar heated swimming pool with decked area. All of this is nestled within the original medieval stonewalls of our courtyard providing secluded privacy from the outside world.
During loving renovation, the house unveiled many historic secrets associated with the Cathars. There are 15 authentic stone arches scattered throughout the property and various 13th century paintings. The latter are currently under restoration with the first paintings unveiled in the village Maison de Patrimone (September 2014) revealing 20 chevaliers including one that depicts the coat of arms for Simon de Montfort who was hated in the Languedoc for his cruelty and ambition towards the Cathars - you are sure to feel you have taken a step back in time! However, with all mod cons and a comfortable feel to the living accommodation in the self catering gîte, it is history at its best! With arguably the most spectacular façade in the village, Neuf Rue de Cancans really is a gem nestled within the cobbled streets of a village voted 'One of Frances Prettiest'
Cathar Trail: As Lagrasse nestles in the foothills of the Pyrenees on the Cathar Trail there is an abundance of historic sightseeing to be done within the region.
