Definitely quirky....

  • 2 of 5

The place is wired up like its 1 huge extension lead

Quirky it may be, but it's definitely different...

You get a bag of towels that look like they have come out a skip, I've given better quality stuff to charity

There isn't a sharp knife to found any where

The bathroom is impracticable, the sink is set too far back the shower is minute with a tatty curtain.

The property is festooned with old rugs that add nothing to the ambiance

The decor is dated and unkempt

Rubbish bags outside the main entrance, and the piazza area constantly has rubbish blowing about

Prior to arriving Tried on numerous occasions to contact the owner for information on various questions which you would have expected a long term resident to have easily answered, but every attempt to agree a method of communication was ignored.

Yeah Keith friendly the dogs are cute but the property lacking and does not match the profile which it promotes, quirky is definitely not nice in this scenario.

The main is up high raised steps, the stairway is steep and winding with out any form of hand rail so anybody with mobility issues will find this property extremely difficult to navigate

Don't be fooled by the images used to promote this property, if you wish to experience it for yourself please do so...

Lovely property and fabulous roof terrace. Keith made us very welcome and had a welcome pack waiting for us when we arrived (a first!) . Also he has two little dogs who made us welcome also. Excellent!!

Lovely Stay - Very good value for money

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment on the first floor with an fantastic large roof terrace up a further flight of steps. Keith and his very sweet dogs where there to greet us along with a very generous welcome pack of wine, orange juice, fruit, butter, bread, cheese etc which was very thoughtful. The apartment is well equipped with everything you could possibly need including toilet roll, washing up liquid, washing powder, bin bags, foil etc. The location is excellent and you can easily get around without a car with a regular bus services to the beaches, if you don’t fancy the walk and lots of cycle paths and trains in both directions along the coast. It’s also an easy location to reach with a direct high speed train link to Agde from Paris. Take a pair of binoculars as their are planes, trains, loads of different species of birds, particularly early evening and an amazing night sky. You might even see a rabbit in the square! Thanks Keith

Home away from home in a wonderful town

  • 5 of 5

"Tower" with accommodation on 1st floor and massive roof terrace on 4th. All for exclusive use. Central, charming and very well equipped (British style rather than sparse French holiday home style, even has UK TV via Internet). Fantastic British owner who can't do enough for you. Brilliant views. Ideal for two people (second bedroom is small) and you need to be happy with narrow stairs. Lack of air con is not a problem due to thick walls in most weathers but there are fans which are appreciated on the odd occasions when the outside temperature exceeds 35 degrees. WE have now been here 3 times and will come back again.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was even nicer than we expected from the photos. It has been thoughtfully designed and lovingly decorated over many years. Our children thought they were in Aladdin's cave with all the unusual ornaments, handmade furniture and other treasures. Keith looked after us so well and the cheese, bread, wine etc was gratefully received after a very long journey. We loved the location and the roof terrace was perfect for barbecues after a day at the beach. We dined in the Mare Nostrum after reading an earlier review and enjoyed a lovely meal in a fabulous location.

We would highly recommend this apartment!! Clean, all mod cons, great decor, a friendly owner and an excellent location.
