If you visit the beautiful region of Lagrasse in the Aude department, you may stay at the Château Les Auzines, a unique, family-run estate that stands isolated on a rocky plateau at 350metres altitude. To find out about availability and prices, please contact us through the contact form.
Lagrasse is classified as one of the most beautiful villages in France. Its name comes from the Occitan word “grassa” (fertile). The village’s history is linked to the Benedictine abbey of Lagrasse, founded by Charlemagne. At this time, Lagrasse was a flourishing city on the banks of the Orbieu river. The “Old Bridge”, built in 1303, joined the abbey and the village on the opposite bank.
The medieval ramparts are also one of the most beautiful attractions of the region.
