About the property

House 5 mins from Sea in Portiragnes, Nr. Beziers, Languedoc-Roussillon, France - Peaceful Location Near Centre of Village May to September Temperatures 25C to 35C

This charming traditional 3 storey village house , makes a wonderful base for that peaceful chillout or romantic holiday away from the hustle and bustle. The wonderful blue flag Beach only 5 mins by car. The house is located adjacent to small quiet square with typical French atmosphere in the heart of the historic village. No passing traffic other than access to residents. The good location enables visitors who choose not to bring a car to easily get out and about using public transport or a brisk 30 minute walk to beach.

About Judi Fordom

We live in the Sussex countryside and so enjoy the attraction of a small French Village by the Sea, we have worked hard to create a cosy little house and turned it into a home from home rather than just a holiday bolt hole.

Judi Fordom purchased this house in 2005

Why Judi Fordom chose Beziers area

We bought our little corner of France in 2005, having visited Carcassonne for a long weekend - fell in love with our village located on the Canal Midi -the area with its beautiful vineyards and long white sandy beaches - had it all for us !

Hope you will love it as much as we do !

What makes this house unique

Vllage has all the amentities you require including

3 Bars

3 Restaurants

1 Supermarket

3 Bakers

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Opened the door on arrival & thought 'ce'st magnifique'-we came for time to re charge the batteries - been the ideal place-very friendly village-area so good for walking which we loved sometimes used the local buses to get back! - Weather been lovely and warm up to 26 deg-even managed an invigorating 2 mins in sea-not bad for the time of year-little house just what the doctor ordered hope to return in the future.' - Graham and Carol

Thank you for introducing us to your wonderful petit maison - fantastic location + is a fantastic gateway to an array of great places to visit.

wonderful location, and very friendly village!

  • 4 of 5

The house was smaller and what we thought, but got used it, and the steep stair case !! But homely! and YES WE HAD A LOVELY HOLIDAY THERE!, only complaint was the shutters on downstairs window, did not open as seen in photos its open, and made the kitchen dark!

And would go back!

Owner's Response: Stairs do take a bit of getting used too, all part of the character of these 300 year old village houses. Downstairs kitchen shutters do open fully as per the photo, they fold out and then back onto themselves, giving full light and sunshine ! Will leave a note on the shutters to this affect.
