Very family centred type holiday with activities on the beach for families. There are daily markets in Portiragnes plage through the summer.

Supervised by lifeguards during the high season. Small beach bars/ restaurants for having lunch or dinner by the sea or a beer as a sun downer on the way home from the beach. Hiring of boats etc available on the beach itself.

Lots of beautiful restaurants within walking distance of the property. There are also lots of local shops, markets, supermarkets and cash machines.
The village of Portiragnes itself is located 2km inland from the villa/beach and is a typical French village with great boulangeries (bakers) for fresh baguettes, butchers, a post office, a cash point machine, a sports hall (organised activities in the summer), a church and 2 or 3 restaurants.
There is a tourist office next to the town hall and a little supermarket (Coccinelle) just beyond the church, on a side road.
We must mention the wine co-operative (La Campestre) located beyond the village sports hall where you can support the local wine growers and producers and purchase some very palatable wines (the Sauvignon and Vigneron are especially good).
You can also buy some vino for less than E1.50 per litre here!The old Mediterranean town of Bezier is the nearest major town. It has a magnificent cathedral, the old bull ring (still staging bullfights if that’s your thing), a beautiful flower market on Fridays and the very popular Annual Ferria in August. The ‘Nine Locks at Fonseranne’ (Neuf Ecluse a Fonseranne) on the Canal du Midi, is on the west side of Beziers and is an engineering marvel. It consists of a series of locks over a relatively short distance taking the Canal and its boats up a steep hill - it is world-renowned and well worth a visit.
Pezenas is another picturesque town with cobbled streets and ancient buildings just outside Beziers and to the North-East. A relaxing stroll through its narrow cobbled streets, which are filled with traditional arts and crafts, painting and sculptures, is recommended.
Agde/Cap d’Agde/Sete: These towns are a short (30-45 min drive) away and are well worth a visit. Cap d’Agde has Aqualand (a water theme park with several hair raising rides) and can easily occupy a whole day.
Toonsland is a great little amusement park for the under 9s.
