About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1 toilet, the property sleeps 6-7 people

This ancient house is situated in the historic center of Agde, only 50 m. from the town's very attractive promenade filled with nice cafés and restaurants.

The bottom floor is a large kitchen/dinner room. From this room you can exit to a nice big southern court yard with a lot of flowers, a dinner table with chairs and fireplace to light up the the nights. From may till October this is the most used 'room' in the house. During the summer you need a courtyard. Here you can find the shade but also the sun. It is a nice place for the children to play and it is easy to serve the dinner. From the kitchen and the courtyard you go down to a big bedroom/living room that sleeps two persons in a double bed. Sofa and table, dining table and chairs. Doors to the yard. On the first floor you will find a double bedroom, a large bathroom with bath top and two washbasins, and a separate toilet. At the top floor you have a big bedroom/living room with two beds, sofa, table and chairs and a nice view.

A lovely, spacious house in Agde.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four and we all had a lovely week staying at this typical French old house with everything you need for a great holiday. It has all the facilities you need including WiFi at the house and plenty of room.

The property is situated in a quiet area but near the promenade which has restaurants, bakeries and small shops and on certain days, the market which brings a great atmosphere to the area. The markets sold a variety of things - local produce, clothes, food, gifts and antiques.

In just a short walk to the river, there are also many restaurants to choose from. The views you get when you are sat on the floating seating area are amazing, especially in the evening. At night, the river area hosts events and concerts.

There are also many beaches nearby but one that stood out for us was the 'la plage de la Grande Conque' which was a short 10 minutes drive away to the Cap d'Agde. With its black sand and beautiful sea life, perfect for snorkelling and swimming in the clear water. A perfect little beach that we definately recommend!

All in all, a great place to stay in a lovely town.

Family of 6 from NZ - Suited us perfectly

  • 5 of 5

We pinpointed Agde as a town we wanted to stay in as it was on the train route and yes, you can walk from the train station to the house (get a map before you arrive) and it is a flat walk.

The house is right in the heart of the old town and 2 mins from the main promenade with restaurants, 2mins to the river and 2 mins to the shops. Markets were on Thursday and Saturday with the traditional cheeses and barrels of olives apart from all the normal stuff.

The house layout suited us perfectly as we were an extended family unit of 2 couples with 1 child each. The courtyard was a benefit and the bathroom worked well (2 sinks).

I'd definetly recommend Agde as a place to stay (we went to Sette and Carcassonne on day trips) and out to Cap d'Agde - and Lone (the owner of the house) was great to deal with.

NB - there is free wifi at the local library!

Cheers

Maison trés agreable

  • 5 of 5

Maison très agréable, confortable et propre avec en plus le plaisir de profiter de la cour pour l'apéro , les barbecues et les joies du farniente. Lone nous reçoit avec chaleur et le charme de son petit accent danois . La maison est située sur une place très jolie en plein cœur de la vieille ville et à côté des commerces , restaurants , cafés . Ce qui est très confortable quand on a pas de voiture.

Absolut empfehlenswert

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben 2 schöne Wochen in diesem typischen Altstadthaus verbracht. Es ist sehr geräumig, erstreckt sich über 3,5 Etagen (steile Treppen mit Fitnessfaktor) und verfügt über einen Innenhof, in dem man absolut ungestört ist. Ein paar Schritte und man ist mitten in der Innenstadt und auf den Wochenmärkten. Man ist hier wirklich mitten in der Altstadt, mit lauter engen Gäßchen ( hier mit dem Auto vor die Haustür fahren zu wollen, davon rate ich ab, es sei denn, man hat ein Miniauto) und das hat seinen Charme. Ein Auto braucht man hier eigentlich ohnhin nicht, alles ist zu Fuß erreichbar. Wer Ausflüge machen will, der stellt sein Auto eben einfach etwas weiter auf einem kostenlosen Parkplatz an der Post ab. Zum Meer und den Stränden ist es auch nicht weit; wer ein Fahrrad hat: mitnehmen ! Man kann auch wunderschön damit am canal du midi entlangfahren. Die direkte Nachbarschaft besteht aus sehr netten Engländern/Iren - immer zu einem Pläuschchen aufgelegt - etwas weiter die Strasse herunter vorwiegend aus Bewohnern mit Abstammung von den Zigeunern und ein paar Franzosen. Wir haben uns mit allen Anwohnern sehr gut verstanden und deren Leben vor der Haustür ist wirklich mal was anderes und man ist mitten drin. Man kann sich auch in der Vormittagssonne direkt mit einem Buch vor die Haustür setzen; und keiner guckt blöd. Obwohl man mitten im Zentrum wohnt ist es nachts meist sehr ruhig; und morgens wird man von den Möwen geweckt; richtig schön ! Einziger Negativpunkt in der Altstadt: obwohl es allerorts Spender für Hundeexkremente gibt: die benutzt hier wohl niemand; man muss wirklich Slalom-Laufen, um nicht direkt in die Hundehaufen zu treten. Morgens gegen halb sieben macht die Stadtreinigung die Runde; eine halbe Stunde später ist wieder alles voll :)) ...mit Humor nehmen und Nase zuhalten, wenn's sein muss...Wir hatten jedenfalls einen schönen Urlaub in diesem Haus, in dieser Umgebung verbracht. Und wer die Region noch nicht kennt: es gibt unendlich viele, schöne Ausflugsziele ganz in der Nähe. Es war unser erster Urlaub in einer richtigen Altstadt und wirklich viel schöner als so manches Luxus-Häuschen z.B. an der Côte d'Azur.

Und die Vermieter sind auch sehr nett ! Wir können dieses Haus nur empfehlen. Weil ich auch im Urlaub arbeiten muss, waren die Vermieter so nett, sogar ein W-Lan zu installieren !

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Montpellier at 50 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Sète at 25 Kilometres Nearest Train : Agde at 1 Kilometres Nearest Beach : at 4 Kilometres Car: not necessary

Agde is undoubtedly the Paradise of the South of France. It is located on the river Herault, 3.5 km from the Mediterranean. A stroll along th quays, through Agde's narrow streets or in the towns or in the museums, leaves no doubts that Agde is one of Europe's oldest towns.

The mild climate with over 300 sunny days a year is an invitation to enjoy an outdoor life also well after the summer season. The Spanish border,an hour and a half drive away,can be reached by motorway and is therefore an excellent idea to explore an other country.

With Ryanair, from Standsted airport, you can fly to Montpellier, Carcassonne, Nimes and Perpignan. From these airports you can easily take a train to Agde. Agde is an ancient fishing port on the river Herault, and it has many good restaurants under the shade of the beautiful Plants and trees.

There is a wide cycle path running by the side of the river from the Old Town to the beach. The Tour de France stops in Agde on the 16th July this year.
