Agde - 'Black Pearl of the Mediterranean': , lies on the Cote d'or at the junction of the Canal du Midi with the sea. There are miles of sandy beaches, limitless sunshine and fishing boats still moor at the quays of this cheerful and colourful port, second oldest town of France, a maze of picturesque streets full of shops, restaurants and cafe bars. Yet we are only 5 mins from the vibrant resort town of Cap d'Agde which offers the usual pleasures of the Med - nightclubs, cinemas....Aqualand - the popular water theme park and the famous private naturist quarter!(though you don't come across it unless you look for it)

Guestbook comments from the owner
I first fell in love with Agde more than twenty five years ago and felt the pull back first in 2009 when we stayed in the Detached Stone House next door to Maison d'Estella. I knew we had come to right place the moment through the door. Immaculately clean, beautifully furnished with French antiques and enough room for our disparate party to find their own spaces. I the following years we split our stay between the Detached House and, as our party expanded, Maison d'Estella. Maison d'Estella is truly unique; a rambling mediaeval grand house. Immense open kitchen/dining room, bedrooms overlooking inner and outer courtyards and a roof terrace with spectacular views. The location of the houses is ideal for the Promenade, local restaurants and markets. Both have safe storage for bicycles (which can be hired locally) - to potter down the cycle path to the beautiful beaches of Grau d'Agde. The train station is within easy walking distance and various members of our party have made outings to Carcassone, Narbonne, Perpignan and Avignon. Allan and Nira have done a remarkable job of renovating and furnishing these special houses. They are attentive and helpful owners who have a passionate interest in the history and culture of their town.
