We found the house to be extremely well located just a few minutes walk from the walls of the town of Aigues Mortes. The house was well equipped for cooking, washing clothes, and diswashing, all the necessities for family living. It was nice to find that there was a supply of beach towels available for use and that there were spares to allow for rotation. There was a great outdoor gas barbacue which we used regularly however this proved a little problematic to light as the ignition spark did not work. (perhaps a new battery could sort this.)
We used the outdoor eating area almost all of the time for meals and for sitting out at night with a glass of wine, one word of warning.... Bring Mosquito spray as they are incredibly prolific.
Another plus with the house was the air conditioning which I don't think you could do without inJuly/ August
The proximity to the pool was excellent and even though there are almost 80 houses on the estate the pool never seemed crowded.
The garage is also well equipped with 2 bicycles for use of the guests, and even a fishing rod if that takes your fancy.
Cycle paths while present in some places are not really suitable for kids who have just started cycling as they are narrow and the canal walk just down from the house is very rough underfoot for cycling or running on.
Restauraunts in town were a mixed Bag we would suggest La Salicorne as a good option if a little on the expensive side, Cafe de Commerce is also excellent with very good service.
On the other side of the coin La Montjoie in the square is very basic, but passable. La Citadelle should be avoided at all costs as we had a very bad experience here with huge waiting times between courses, cold food, extremely poor service. Also while the food is reasonably good at Les Capuchins in the square, if you want a relaxing meal aviod here as the object seems to be to cram in as many as possible and get them through and out as fast as possible.
