BEAUTIFUL, RECENTLY RENOVATED PERIOD HOUSE WITHIN WALLS HISTORIC MEDIEVAL TOWN

Aigues-Mortes House Rental Photos and Description

Self catering family rental, in quite street, private secure garden and balcony

Unlike most advertised properties, which are some distance away, we are within the walls of the town. This 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom house has been renovated to an extremely high standard with all mod cons including air conditioning in all bedrooms. It sits on a quite street within the medieval ramparts of the vibrant town of Aigues Mortes. There is a large enclosed 45ft walled garden (a real sun trap) with terraced area great for children and families. There is a full set of outdoor furniture, with an 8 seat dining set, a large parasol which provides complete shade for the dining area. The four bedrooms are configured as two doubles and two twins. Through the master bedroom a private balcony overlooking the private garden, ideal for romantic breakfasts a deux. The house has a flat screen TV, iPod docking station, CD player and DVD library. The area is served by wonderful sandy beaches, great water sports, horse riding, golf, fantastic restaurants and superb vineyards (walking distance)

The Camargue Region: The Camargue is a national park, and home to the famous white horses of the area, black bulls and flamingos. There is a stunning variety of wildlife to see. Trekking, water cruises and safaris are available to take advantage of the park and see the wildlife within it. The beaches in the area are unspoilt and stretch for kilometres with no development, and pristine forest behind the dunes. There are a number of beautiful villages and marinas to visit, and some of the finest seafood in France available from the nearby lagoons, famous for oysters and mussels.

Languedoc is the province that covers medieval l’Occitanne. Discover for yourself what makes l’Occitanne special and unspoilt. Rousillon is French Catalan, which has left traces of the Sardana, bullfights and paella.

Recommended tours include Pont du Gard, Arles, St Marie de la Mer and the wonderfully vibrant University towns of Nimes and Montpellier with their exquisite shopping and boulevards

Sport and Leisure: (All within 3km of town) Wine tasting, Bird Watching, Cycling, Fishing, Golf, Horse Riding, Night Life, Sailing, Boat trips, Train tour of town, Scuba Diving, Tennis, Walking, Water Sports, cycle hire (7 Euro per day) – 5 mins walk from the house. We also have our own bikes that we would be happy to negotiate a reduced hire cost for.

Small motor boats (not electric and licence not required) also for hire at the same spot as bike hire, alongside the canal.

A little gem in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a wonderful week staying in this lovely house in Aigues Morte with my husband, my brother and his wife.

We had visited Aigues Mortes before but the opportunity to stay 'intra-mural' was too good to miss so we booked, I am pleased to say that everything lived up to our expectations and the description on the website.

Arranging the booking and the payment with the owner was smooth and simple, they were friendly and courteous and happy to answer my questions. The same high standard of customer service was experienced in France, where the local agent was helpful, friendly and easy to contact when necessary.

The house was clean and well maintained with everything we needed for a great holiday; visiting in August we made alot of use of the quiet, secluded courtyard for mealtimes and a little sunbathing and welcomed the air-conditioning in the bedrooms.

Aigues Morte is a picturesque town with great restaurants, cafes, bars and shops - all of these were literally on our doorstep, aswell as some great festivals and markets to enjoy without having to take the car out.

Everywhere you go you can buy local produce, from the superb wine and cheeses, to juicy fruit and honey and not forgetting the wonderful bull products (for the meat-eaters) - all of which are well worth a try!!

On the days we left the town, we went to the beach at Stes Maries de la Mer or visited historic attractions such as Arles, Les Baux de Provence,etc - all in easy driving distance, and accessed via the beautiful Camargue countryside.

We love this region of France and I would recommend this property to couples or families who are either looking for a perfect base to explore the area or just seeking out a relaxing get-away with first-class facilities within easy walking distance.

We can't wait to go back!

A wonderful place

  • 5 of 5
We have had a wonderful time at the house and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others. Everything we needed was available and the property manager Richard was very helpful. The kids had a great time, and they loved spending time at the beach and at the water sports. The only thing that we could complain about was the weather on a few days but there were videos and games to keep them occupied. Thank you again for the use of your home.

AIGUES MORTES DELIGHT

  • 5 of 5
A really charming house with 4 good bedrooms, and two good bathrooms. The living area on the ground floor works well, for me the highlight was the wonderful courtyard garden, perfect for enjoying the sun during the day and delightful for dinner in the evening. Loads of space generally in the house and attractively decorated. Absolutely nothing to criticise.

Aigues Mortes is a magical atmosphere with many restaurants, shops and galleries and there are fascinating towns and sights quite nearby like Avignon, Arles, Nimes, the Pont du Gard etc. The Camargue is full of mystery, with white horses, black bulls and flamingoes.

The coast has huge beaches easy to access, the beach to the West of Les Saintes Maries de La Mer has particularly good restaurant cafes on the beach itself.

Prepare to put on a kilo or two with the excellent local food and wine. Unusually well served by airports, with Montpellier, Nimes, Avignon and Marseilles.

There is public transport but either hire a car before you set off to collect at whichever airport you use. The excellent high speed TGV train network serves the big towns and the station usually have hire car companies on site.

aigues mortes Sept 2011

  • 4 of 5
great location in centre of town. much more choice of restaurants than expected. plenty with reasonable prix fixe menus. very comfortable house although staircase is steep and narrow which caused a bit of a worry with young children. Parking outside city walls is close by, but the permit is 35 euros per week which is not mentioned in the description. Communication with owner was limited and needed chasing to confirm that payments had been received. Local agent was helpful and responded to all calls. House would benefit from a small information pack e.g. rubbish collection, info for local beach etc. Neighbours seemed a bit grumpy complaining about noise in the garden and shouting over the walls at us. This was at 8.30 pm with 3 over 40's adults having a conversation over dinner. Not exactly a wild party. Overall though, very enjoyable holiday and will definately return to the area.

Idyllic retreat

  • 5 of 5
A group of five of us spent a wonderful few days at this property in April 2011. The house had every facility and convenience we needed for a perfect holiday break. The location within the walls was ideal for shops, restaurants and bars but sufficiently off the main tourist trail to be peaceful and quiet. The terraces were a haven of tranquility and the rooms cool and relaxing.

Many superb holiday attractions are within east reach by car, including the beach at le Grau du Roi, Nimes, the Pont du Gard and Montpellier. We also enjoyed a canal trip.

We can recommend this house very highly. The owners and the local agent dealt with everything efficiently and we would have no hesitation in returning.

Un groupe de cinq d'entre nous a passé quelques jours merveilleux dans cet établissement en avril 2011. La maison avait toutes les facilités et le confort dont nous avions besoin pour un séjour vacances de rêve. L'emplacement dans l'enceinte a été idéale pour les magasins, restaurants et bars, mais suffisamment en dehors des sentiers touristiques d'être calme et tranquille. Les terrasses ont été un havre de tranquillité et une agréable fraîcheur et de détente.

De nombreuses attractions de superbes vacances sont à portée de l'est en voiture, y compris la plage au Grau du Roi, Nimes, le Pont du Gard et Montpellier. Nous avons également bénéficié d'un voyage canal.

Nous pouvons vous recommander cette maison très fortement. Les propriétaires et l'agent local s'occupait de tout de façon efficace et nous n'aurions aucune hésitation à retourner.

Eine Gruppe von fünf von uns verbrachten einen wunderschönen paar Tage in diesem Hotel im April 2011. Das Haus hatte jede Erleichterung und Bequemlichkeit, die wir für einen perfekten Urlaub Pause benötigt. Die Lage innerhalb der Mauern war ideal für Geschäfte, Restaurants und Bars, aber ausreichend aus den wichtigsten touristischen Strecke zu sein friedlich und ruhig. Die Terrassen waren eine Oase der Ruhe und die Räume kühl und entspannend.

Viele hervorragende Urlaub Sehenswürdigkeiten sind bequem zu erreichen mit dem Auto Osten, einschließlich der Strand von Le Grau du Roi, Nimes, Pont du Gard und Montpellier. Wir genossen auch einen Kanal Reise.

Wir können dieses Haus sehr empfehlen. Die Eigentümer und die lokalen Agenten mit allem effizient und behandelt würden wir nicht zögern, wieder zu haben.

Fantastic Location for a holiday in France

  • 5 of 5
Our family traveled form Dublin, to Carcassonne, 6 of us, on a fly/drive, and had one of the best holidays we have ever had. We would be delighted to stay in this house again if we returned to this area again and we would have no hesitation in recommending and the house to others.

The house is furnished with everything that we could have wanted including a lovely barbecue in the garden. The location is surprisingly quite seeing as it is located only a minute from the town center and the car parks. The local facilities in the town were fantastic, local bakery and one of our favorite restaurants within stones throw from the door.
