A number of our previous guests have said they liked our house because they felt so at home there, the supply of books in a number of languages, DVDs board games and the box of beach equipment and children's toys gave it a homely feel. The reviews are worth a look. The house is spacious with every modern convenience Great for summer sun, warm Autumn and Spring breaks The house is set up with 1 DOUBLE ensuite bedroom on the ground floor, 1 TWIN on the first floor and 1 TWIN on the mezzanine. Shower and separate w.c.on the first floor adjacent to the twin bedrooms. YOU WILL ENJOY, the large living area with comfortable seating and the dining area with seating for six. The secluded terrace with brick BBQ. A second terrace is ideal for a sunny breakfast of coffee and croissants is just off the separate kitchen. 5 mins walk to the beach by pedestrian pathway. We recommend you use a taxi to and from station if availing of public transport as you will need to pick up the keys and fresh sheets and towels..Free private parking is a few steps from the back door.

There is a small supermarket a greengrocer and bakery/ cafe/ fast food outlet at five minute walk.

Local facilities and amenities.: The house is located in a quiet area five minutes walk from the beach and ten minutes walk to town centre/marina where there is a large selection of bars and restaurants to suit every pocket and taste.

At Cap d’Agde, family holidays are even better!

Cap d'Agde is the seaside family destination par excellence : with the multitude of activities on offer, numerous organised events and its Famille Plus seal of approval, everything is in place to guarantee you a great family holiday. Beach games, sporting activities, water sports, walking trails to suit all tastes and ages, restaurants and accommodation suitable for the very young...

The 'Famille Plus' seal of approval: happy parents

Cap d'Agde has been awarded the national 'Famille Plus' seal of approval which recognises the hospitality and facilities on offer to families with children in French tourist destinations.

In order to obtain this award, 110 criteria have to be met in the following areas:

Hospitality and information for families,

Events and activities,

Discovery of the local environment and heritage,

Accommodation and catering facilities,

Facilities and safety provision

There are a large number of activities such as swimming, diving, sailing, hill walking horse riding, tennis, golf, jet ski, fishing, quad bikes, archery, cycling, go karting wine tasting and many others, available locally.

The area also caters well for cultural activities such as music and art festivals, historic buildings and towns and the annual Feria in Beziers. The towns of Agde and Sete host public water jousting competitions throughout the summer which are a colourful and exciting spectacle. We have our own website which gives detailed information on local area, attractions and activities please email for link.

Places of interest: The villa has a visitor book with information on local activities, places of interest etc. We recommend a visit to the small lakeside town of Marseillan, just a few minutes drive, to Sete a charming fishing port, fifteen minutes, to Mountpellier, a majestic town, forty minutes, and to Beziers with its impressive leafy 'Alles Paul Riquet', twenty five minutes. Carcassonne is worth a visit, and we love St Guilhem le Desert. Historical interest in Aigues Mortes, Beaucaire, Lodeve, Pezenas, Sommieres, Uzes & Nimes. The impressive Viaduc de Millau (approx 60 miles) is a large cable-stayed road-bridge that spans the valley of the River Tarn near Millau & is well worth a visit for all engineering enthusiasts. Designed by French bridge engineer Michel Virlogeux and British architects, Foster and Partners, it is the tallest vehicular bridge in the world, with one mast's summit at 343 metres — slightly taller than the Eiffel Tower and only 38 m shorter than the Empire State Building.

WOW! You will love this place & house

  • 5 of 5

house - like home away from home. very comfortable - very private, lovely and cool when you returned from the very nearby beach. Very well equipped. The nights we stayed in we BBQd, played scrabble and watched a DVD from the excellent collection. Shops within 5 minute walk, beach the same - they even supplied all the beach equipment. We enjoyed every minute and are already planning our return trip next year! It was great being able to walk to port at night for restaurants without having to take out car. Lots of places to see without driving too far.

Beautiful holiday home in excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

This holiday property is as described and is a home from home. It is very well maintained and is furnished and equipped to a very high standard with everything you could possibly need during your stay. The owners provided a very helpful binder with detailed information on the apartment and the local area.

The location is ideal with the beach just a short walk away. There are some small shops and a bakery nearby and a 10 minute walk takes you in to the port where there numerous shops, bars and restaurants.

There is a bus stop across the road from the property where you can get a bus to Agde station so it is very convenient if you wish to visit some of the nearby towns and cities. We visited Montpellier and Beziers during our stay.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone & hope to return in the future.

Fantastic stay in an amazing property

  • 5 of 5

You will not regret choosing this property! The owners are super helpful and gave excellent directions to the property and provided invaluable assistance in planning our holiday.

Really well equipped with absolutely everything you could need for a great break, spotlessly clean, fabulous dining/seating areas out the front and back of the property. Everything in the property is in excellent condition including all the cooking equipment/utensils etc. Very comfortable beds and indoor couches in the living room. Within walking distance to the beautiful beach and the port. Plenty of restaurants in the port, different cuisines available. Local shops less than a 5 minute walk away including a SPAR and a lovely bakery. Montpellier is a beautiful city to visit. Stayed for a week, will definitely return!

Lovely well equipped house in very nice location

  • 5 of 5

The house is five minutes walk from the beach by pedestrian path and ten minutes walk to the marina/port which has a good selection of bars and restaurants. There are a range of shops bakery green grocer etc s few minutes walk from the house and more at the port. This made for a very relaxing holiday no need to take out the car.

The weather was lovely and it was great to ramble back in the evening after a swim to enjoy BBQ,d food on very private and sunny terrace. There is a smaller terrace on the other side of the house which gets the morning sun where we had coffee and croissants for breakfast.

The property was clean and tidy and very well equipped. The main reception room is spacious and combined with the terraces offers somewhere to sneak away to read a book alone if you chose.

The location is great as a base as Montpellier is a 40 min drive on one side while Beziers is 20 min on the other. There are several other towns and villages nearby and the Spanish border is about 75 mins we did not get there but we did enjoy day trips to Beziers Sete and Marseillan which is a very pretty port village.

A big plus for the house was the two showers no big wait in the morning.

We would love to go back.

Wonderful Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for a week in late February and really enjoyed our visit. The weather was lovely and used it as a base to visit Beziers Penezas Montpellier and even Avignon which was well worth the trip. A day trip to Spain is possible but we did not get around to going.

The house was very clean comfortable and well equipped. We had a small baby in our party and were pleased that cot high chair and bath were provided free of charge. The house is just as described on the website.

The location is excellent as the beach is only a short walk as is the marina where there was a good selection of restaurants bars and shops. There are also some small shops about 250m from the house.

All in all we had a great trip and were very happy with the house. We would consider it again for a Spring break or possibly a longer stay during the Summer Season.

Great family holiday house in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

From the quick reply to my initial email the owner was extremely helpful and the property was just as nice as the other reviews had said. Detailed directions to get to the house were emailed (thanks a lot Chris) and the agents were very helpful with the booking and payment process.

We booked it as a last minute family holiday for October half term and the property was wonderfully suited for that. We particularly liked the fact that there was even buckets and spades for the kids to use on the beach, very handy.

We were very lucky with the weather during our 8 days there but there was a large selection of DVD’s just in case as well as a dozen or so that were suitable for smaller children as well as games and books for them.

There was a small selection of guide books and maps for the local area that were very helpful and the info pack on the house was very detailed, from the best local pastry shop (missing it already!!) to the best place to buy fuel from.

There was a patio at both the front and the rear of the property which meant that we could sit in the sun in the morning and the evening and the beach itself was only a few minutes walk away.

The beach closest to the house was very nice, one part was more of a shell beach rather than sand which was great for the kids as they spent countless hours hunting for the perfect shell, with the rest of the beach being a coarse sand that stretched for miles!

The immediate shops that were about 100 metres from the house were all closed due to the time that we went except for the newsagent that was like a mini shop and he sold just about everything that you could need, however the wonderful pastry shop was only ten minutes walk the other way with all the shops surrounding it being open from a grocer to wine to clothes shops, so there really wouldn’t have been anything that you needed for your stay that you couldn’t get within walking distance if needed. The Hyper U supermarket was about 5 minutes by car, with fuel that was about 20% cheaper than the UK.

All in all a wonderfully located house, we did a large amount of driving about (1,000 miles of trips, plus approx 2,000 miles there and back) and it was a great base to visit Carcassone, Montpellier, Beziers, Nimes, St Guihelm le Desert, Clamouse Caves, Tarn Gorges and Millau Bridge from plus a few others that I have forgotten and we even went to Spain for a day!

Would highly recommend it and we are already looking at what dates we want to go for next year!
