Lagrasse is classed as one of France's most beautiful villages & lies in the foothills of the Corbières between Carcassonne and Narbonne and only 40 minute from the beaches of the Mediteranean.

The village has 6 restaurants, pizzeria, a bakery 2 café/bars, artisanal shops, 2 epiceries, tabac, post office, cash dispenser,hairdresser, doctors & chemist. 
The river Orbieu provides excellent swimming in the summer months.

Lagrasse's Abbey founded in the 8th century, is shared between the commune and the Chanoines monks both of whom welcome visitors.
The summer months are very animated with various music festivals, piano concerts,circus,theatre,pottery & folk festivals.
Firework display on the 13th July followed by animations with a much bigger(and very famous) display in Carcassonne on the 14th- 40 mins from Lagrasse.

Here is the Lagrasse (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page description;

Tucked into the heart of the Corbières in southern France, Lagrasse attracts an extraordinary variety of residents, complementing its salt-of-the-earth locals. The tiny population of 630 people live in this medieval listed village surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, its backdrop dominated by an 8th century working Abbey. Situated in a valley surrounded by Mediterranean hillsides full of rosemary, thyme and cyprus trees, the river Orbieu meandering through the village, Lagrasse attracts thousands of visitors each year, some of whom never leave, falling in love with this picture postcard example of rural France and changing their lives to allow them to pursue their dream.
Lagrasse is one of those ‘centres of the universe’; you can be drinking in a bar in LA and meet someone who’s been to Lagrasse; Manhattan is full of Lagrasse lovers; from Nepal to Cape Town, Moscow to Rio de Janeiro, visitors come from all over the world, attracted by that intangible ‘pull’ that Lagrasse quietly exerts.

A great welcome, house and, of course, town: swimming in the river, the abbey etc. Very highly recommended.

We had a great time at Chez Shona. It was very neat and relaxed. Beautifull little town and nice river to swim and relax. Very lovely!

Excellent location, just around the corner from the restaurants and shops, but on a quiet street. Would highly recommend.

I can't recommend this place more highly. Lagrasse is a truly beautiful village, and we wish that we had stayed longer at Shona's. The rooms are excellent value for money, and the village is easily navigable by foot. Shona gave us a great restaurant recommendation, and we enjoyed touring the newly renovated Abbey in the village very much. Also a good base for visiting Carcassonne and other nearby castles. Definitely worth staying here!

We stayed 6 nights while visiting family. Ideal base with comfortable bed in light airy room. The shared large bathroom and well equipped kitchen were clean and tidy. Thanks Shona.
