Review #5943426 "Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung in Agde"
Wir erlebten einen unvergesslichen Urlaub in diesem schönen Haus in Agde. Die Wohnung ist sehr schön und liegt direkt im historischen mittelalterlichen Zentrum der Stadt. Das Haus ist schön renoviert und hat ein besonderes Flair, wie man auf den Fotos sehen kann. Die Umgebung von Agde bietet das Mittelmeer mit wunderschönen Stränden und im Norden der Stadt Berge, eine Vielzahl von historischen Orten und auch für Familien mit Kindern gibt es viel zu sehen wie einen Safaripark, riesige Höhlen in den Bergen im Norden, Carcassone ist in der Nähe sowie La Couvertoirade - diese original erhaltene Mittelalterliche Stadt sollte man ungbedingt besuchen. Die Strände und die Umgebung von Agde sind sehr schön. Sightseeing ist ebenso möglich wie Erholung - in der Umgebung gibt es Höhlen, einen Dino-Park, ein Kloster, Berge, Strände, einen Safari-Park, etc. pp.

I first fell in love with Agde more than twenty-five years ago and this was the first house I stayed in when I returned six years ago; this September was our third visit.
I knew we had come to the right place the moment we stepped through the door the first time and it still makes the same impression. Immaculately clean, beautifully furnished and with enough space for everyone to find their own spaces. It has been lovingly renovated by Allan and Nira with real respect for its history.
It is next door to Maison d'Estella in the middle of the old town, ideally positioned round the corner from local restaurants and markets, a short walk to the restaurants on the river and within easy walking distance from the train station. Cycling down the cycle path along the river brings you to the lovely beaches of Grau d'Agde.
My daughter and I spent a month in Agde for work/study. We rented this house over that period - September/October. The position was excellent, in the centre of old Agde, very near the train station and the wonderful weekly market. The house was lovingly restored, with a very pretty courtyard and sunny rooftop terrace with a great view. Though it was little dark in the lower rooms there was plenty of light in the upper rooms. The house had a large kitchen which opened to the courtyard, a great place for tea/coffee or a drink if you didn't wish to climb to the roof terrace. Alan and Nira were very helpful and gave any assistance we required whilst we were there. The only thing we missed was internet connection as we were working, but the Library is very close and very efficient.
Lovely, rustic house in the centre of Agde. Very clean and well-appointed. Very good kitchen facilities. Attractive patio/garden at the back.
The owners were very kind and helpful in all aspects, pointing out places to visit and providing handy tips.
I would recommend this property.
I first fell inlove 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.
This have been unforgettable holidays in this beautiful house in Agde. The flat is very nice and located directly in the historical medieval center of the city.
The house is nicely renovated and has a lot of good aura and atmosphere as you can see on the photos.
The environment of Agde offers the Mediterranean sea with beautiful beaches and in the north of the city mountains as well; a lot of historical places and all kind of entertainment for families with safari park, huge caves in the mountains in the north, carcassone is near as well as La Couvertoirade which is strongly recommended to be visited. The beaches are very nice and the environment of Agde is very beautiful.
A lot of sightseeing is possible as well as recreation.
We visited a lot of places - caves, the dino-park, a monastery, the mountains, the beaches , the cities nearby, the safari park, we explored the historical places in this very old town and also went for shopping.
We (2 couples) had a really good time whilst staying in Agde and without a car. Arrived at Beziers airport and caught the local school bus from the airport to Agde (so easy). The house is set in the very old part of Agde and so authentic. We did loads of things. The bike hire info which was left was really good and cheap. We had a fantastic day in Avingnon (by train), horse riding, walking and bike riding. We had lovely meals out in restaurants along the river (actually floating), We found a restaurant out in the countryside at the end of a days cycling (remember to take torches with you) this was shaby looking but was lovely also loads of restaurants in the town to choose from. The beach is within walking distance along the river bank. This location is fantastic!!! We have wonderful memories of this holiday and will hopefully stay again.
