“Magnifique!!!”
Reviewed 25 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

My sister and I stayed here for a week in the fall foliage month of October. I have rented numerous - and beautiful - properties in France over the years (Cote d'Azur, Burgundy, Bordeaux, Paris) but none compares with House La France (well, maybe just one - a lovely villa perched above Villefranche-sur-Mer and the Mediterranean - but that's an entirely different venue). For the countryside - vineyards, mountains, ancient villages - House La France is THE place to stay! From the moment we spotted it during our Google search for Languedoc properties, we knew it was the one. The best part was that on arrival it more than fulfilled our already high expectations - from the beautiful and quiet entryway off the medieval alleyway, to the charming courtyard, spiral staircase to the apartment (the Large Terrace Apartment), to the spacious apartment and terrace itself. The lovely stonework, contemporary kitchen & bathrooms, comfortable furnishings (the beds are divine), two terraces - the rooftop one flooded by sunlight in the afternoons with stunning views over the burbling river and historic bridge - all were perfect to come home to after our daily trips out for sightseeing and long lunches (accompanied by local rose wines). Lagrasse village itself is also lovely and its local residents most welcoming. It has everything one needs - boulangerie, epicerie, several restaurants (La Cocotte Felee was our favorite [for both lunch & dinner], although sadly, we didn't get to try Les Trois Graces), a maize of beautiful alleyways for strolling, and the ancient and lovely Abbaye de Lagrasse across the River Orbieu.
Our favorite villages/towns & sights during day trips out were Homps on the Canal du Midi (lunch @ En Bonne Compagnie at canal side is a must, preferably on the shaded terrace - delicious and very reasonably priced, followed by a stroll along the Canal afterwards), Narbonne with its stunning cathedral (lunch @ Brasserie CO on the terrace overlooking the Canal de la Robine & Cours Mirabeau with views to the cathedral spire & rooftops - also excellent cuisine), the beautiful Abbaye de Fontfroide and serene Abbaye St. Hilaire (the village is also lovely), and the Wednesday morning market at Lezignan-Corbieres. The two Cathar castles we visited - Puivert & Arques - were in beautiful countryside but the castles themselves not that interesting. Just driving the country byways was always lovely, though - miles & miles of vineyards set against the garrigue. The entire week exceeded our dreams and made us want to return soon. And when we do, it will be to Lagrasse and House La France. Thank you, Nicole and Michael, for your warm welcome and friendly hospitality, and for making such a beautiful and comfortable home away from home available for holiday stays.

“The Best!”
Reviewed 11 September 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Words and photographs cannot accurately portray the beauty,
elegance, and sophistication of the interior decor of Nicole's
House La France! From the moment we entered the front door,
to walking across the medieval courtyard and up the winding stair-
case we were enchanted.

The livingroom is open and wide with extremely comfortable
seating and a view across the river. The bedrooms and bathrooms
all have delightful surprises to the senses:
an old stone sink, a claw foot tub, locally handmade lemon soap,
and lovely stones embedded in the stone floor scrolling through the
rooms.

The kitchen is not only fully equipped and efficient, but aesthetically
inviting, as is the deck beyond the french doors off the dining area.
And upstairs is a huge deck overlooking the Orbieu River, complete with
lounge chairs, grill and dining table. A lovely place to read, nap, dine
and relax. |We give it an A+++!

We will definitely come back to stay in House La France in LaGrasse.
We loved every minute there! Thanks, Nicole, for creating a place of
calm, serenity and beauty.

“Beautiful place, perfect location”
Reviewed 7 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Elegantly furnished and decorated,very comfortable with a great roof terrace. Lovely views of the old bridge and the river. Right by the Place des Halles, and within a very short walk of a fine swimming spot, shops and good restaurants. Lagrasse is among the most beautiful villages in France and this is a great place to stay to appreciate it fully.

We stayed in the three bedroom apartment for two weeks in July and I'm still having trouble summing up this amazing rental property, town, experience. Wonderful place to stay; a tragedy to leave! I hope you can stand more of us, Nicole and Michael, because we'll be back next year.

They got it right! The chic rustic style that Nicole and Michael have created is perfect and straight out of my favourite magazine Cote Sud. Once inside you would not know that its a village house with 3 beautifully renovated apartments. It is a real gem right in the centre of the town. I loved our little balcony overlooking the river. It has the most relaxing ambiance to the extent that you are quite happy to stay inside all day. It was the best sleep I had in our 6 weeks of travel in Italy and France! Two days is not long enough as there are so many places to explore in the region. So book for longer as you will be disappointed you did. We are looking forward to returning one day with the rest of the family and take taking the penthouse apartment!
