Beach Villa at Portiragnes

  • 5 of 5

Booking our stay at this property in Portiragnes proved to be a great decision. The booking process was easy and communications with the owner, Regina, were straightforward. The information pack that we received before arriving was very useful and helped us plan our holiday.

We are a family of 5 with children aged between 8-12, we found the villa to be very spacious and well maintained, the layout was perfect for the kids and our daughter loved the balcony bedroom. The living area that opens onto the large patio was great at meal times and the kitchen was very well equipped. The complex was quiet and secure so we had no worries about the children playing outside. The pool was very well maintained, with a guard on duty at all times and was never too busy.

Portiragnes has fantastic beaches and the small town/village is quiet but has some nice bars, shops and restaurants. We found that this resort is well placed to explore the beautiful countryside, including the Canal du Midi locally, and also has a great selection of towns and cities within a short driving distance, to explore.

Overall we had a fantastic stay and hope to return again soon.

Beach and Site seeing holiday

  • 5 of 5

An excellent home, with plenty of space for 4 adults and a child. All the comforts of home had been thought of, so much space you never felt "hemmed in". It was very clean and very well presented.

The beach and amenities were all within an easy 5 minute walk, but the village was close to many historic sites. Perfect venue for Site visits and relaxing.

Excellent fish restaurant on the beach- a must!!

Would recommend without hesitation.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a lovely holiday in a well equipped home. The location was perfect- easy to walk to the beach and to the surrounding restaurants. Unlike the neighbouring beach resorts the traffic was not a problem and it was not too touristy. The children loved the pool; swimming in the sea and the neighbouring attractions at Vias plage (Go Karting, Euro Park and Crazy Golf).

Many areas of beauty to visit nearby (which we did) and a truly wonderful time had by all. Would definitely visit again.

Ideal Place to Relax & Enjoy 2 weeks

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit - which only goes to show how much we enjoyed our first. The villa has all the amenities - lots of space and large outside area with barbecue and large table and chairs. We enjoy going out for meals - there are lots of places locally, but also really like to have a barbecue with local produce and a bottle of wine. The kitchen is very well equipped which saves me bringing the kitchen sink!! Also, the pool is close to the villa.

Lastly, for us the beach is an ideal walk away and we love to go for walks along the beach, particularly in the morning when it is fairly quiet - very often to Serignan Plage.

We would like to thank Sam and Regina for their hospitality and also being on call if needed.

Four Adults and 2 Children ages 6 & 8

Great location and offered everything we had hoped and more. We loved being able to walk to the beach and it was perfect for the children as not as busy as some of the neighbouring resorts.

We felt the villa was very well equipped and really felt like home from home!!
