About this listing
This apartment is located in the grounds of the most prominent mansion of Lagamas village, offering unique views on 19th century architecture and landscape. It is very quiet.
This full of character and very bright flat offers a dining kitchen, one sitting room/large bedroom for up to four guests and a shower room.
Access to the apartment's outdoors is granted.
The double bed (160x200) features a high quality mattress, ideal for a couple. One or two extra single beds can be added, preferably for a family with children. Linen (bed sheets, towels) is included.
Whilst being in the centre of the village, the flat is very quiet*: the windows open on a private walled garden protected from any traffic noise, offering total privacy and unspoilt views.
Featuring some charming details, with traditional tiling, wooden floor in the main room and stone floor in the kitchen, this first floor flat offers the perfect retreat or stop-over to explore the Languedoc region.
I have come here every year since I was born, and have never felt bored! This is truly an inspiring region.
You will have access to the flat itself, with its own independent entry and a laundry room.
No amenities or areas to be shared with others.
Interaction with guests
As I am based abroad (unless I reside in the house next door for short periods), most of the interaction takes place via email and phone. It is possible to put you in touch with local contacts (wine makers, guides etc) if you wish so.
Other things to note
Access to the Chateau's outdoors is granted bearing in mind that it is shared with other residents and limited to the court adjacent to the house hosting your apartment to avoid overlapping.
If you wish to benefit the summerly comfort of a veranda, we invite you to look at our adjacent apartment on offer on airbnb under the description 'Tasteful ground floor apartment with garden access'. The 4-guest capacity is the same but with 4 single beds, one of them a side one.
Your booking fee helps us organise non-for-profit artist residencies at Lagamas in collaboration with The Cornelius Foundation... Thank you!
We are incurring incremental difficulties with the internet line. The reason is simple but alas beyond our control: data traffic jam. The telephone equipment installed in the region is unable to cope properly with high speed data transmission and the exponential use of internet. Increasing our subscribed eligible data capacity does not change it: the size of one's engine won't make the car drive faster in a traffic jam...
Thus our sincere apologies in case the wifi is not optimal.
Some guests who sleep with the windows open have commented that the village church's bells are an unexpected feature. Not so much for all local villages around though who cherish that tradition... but one can understand that it may surprise urban ears.
An air conditioning machine is provided for the summer - though let's not forget how locals regulate the heat: curtains closed during the day, windows opened for a few hours after sunset.
The sleeping room has thick curtains. However, it won't provide a pitch dark environment.
Access to the flat is based on SELF-CHECK IN (after 2pm) and OUT (before 11am), which offers guests much flexibility for arrival and departure time.
Full instructions will be sent to you by email upon confirmation.
NO EXTRA / HIDDEN CHARGES: cleaning fee includes fresh bed linen, bathroom towels and tea towel.
INTERNET: whilst we aim to provide an internet service for the duration of your stay, we cannot always guarantee that internet access will be available. We are incurring increased frequency of failure of the local internet infrastructure.
NON SMOKING and PET FREE apartment. Thank you for your understanding.

My Name is Marianne and I am a curator and art advisor.
I travel a good deal both in Europe, America and Asia and enjoy meeting new people and discovering new places.
I sometimes use airbnb when travelling and have had such positive experiences that I like to rent my Paris and South of France 'pied à terre' when I am away.
