Great for family beach hol

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is simple and clean and had all we wanted. It was hot when we were there but there's two good portable air conditioning units in the house which kept the bedrooms cool at night.

The beach is about 15 minutes walk along a shady footpath. It is huge and sandy and the sea is warm. It was so huge that even in August there was plenty of space for everyone. There was a lovely beach cafe/restaurant that we ate at too.

The complex in which the apartment sits was surprisingly quiet, especially given that it was August. It was filled with quiet holiday families and residents. After an evening out it was the perfect place to unwind.

Family holiday

  • 3 of 5

Spacious house with very well-equipped kitchen and very loud air conditioning unit in the twin bedroom. Very close to a great range of shops and eating places. The fresh fish shop was superb as was the baker's. Cleaning and maintenance could be higher priority. The pool was a good size and clean but there weren't any chairs/loungers to use. Brian and Mairead sent a terrific amount of information for places to eat and things to do-great for us! We were all adults looking for some adventure with sightseeing as well, so the area was great for that. Really good restauraunts within walking distance or a short drive away for non walkers. We loved L'Ascoli just 5minutes walk from the villa.

We drove the one and a half hours to Carcassonne and were suitably blown away by the beauty and atmosphere.

We'd definitely book again if we want to go to the same area also recommend the villa to friends.

From the Owner

We purchased this property for its safe and secure location with ample outdoor space, with built in barbecue. The garden and decking area has its own private lockable gate for extra security for the smaller child on holidays giving peace of mind to any parent. With 8km of unspoilt sandy beaches within walking distance of the property. There is many great amenities on our door step ie Aqualand, Le Grande Stade, Le Jardin de Plantes and many more.

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

Kite surfing, Scuba diving, surfing, sailboarding, water skiing, and just about everything else you can do in or on the sea is available in abundance, boat hire also for the sea lovers. Tennis, squash and badminton courts at La Grande Stade are within two minutes walk. There is also a fitness centre. Adjacent to’ LE grande Stade’ is ‘Le Jardin de Plantes’ (exotic plants and trees )well wort a visit (free all year round). Attractions include Sigean African Animal Reserve (45 mins drive). Aqualand (5 mins) – a water world for children of all ages, big and small. Golf at Golf de St Cyprien (including a restaurant)and riding which can be either four-legged at the local equestrian centres or two-wheeled at bike hire locations. Karting (5minutes direction Argeles). Further afield there is the spectacular scenery of the Pyrenees to be discovered with magnificent views from remote locations which we have found during our many visits to the area.


St.Cyprien enjoys an average of 300 days of sunshine a year. The 12km of sandy beaches of the Mediterranean are within easy walking distance. They are never crowded and there is an abundance of parking in most places. You can bring a picnic if you so wish or enjoy as the french do and have lunch in the many seafront restaurants which are excellent and affordable.


By car you have an 12 hour drive depending on port and route.. Calais (approx 850km). The Spanish border is just a 40 minute drive away offering low, low prices on alcohol, tobacco and almost anything else,so allow space in your car. By Air New!

Perpignan (20 mins), Gerona (75 mins - recommended), Carcassonne (75 mins), Toulouse (2h 15 mins), Nimes (2hrs), Montpellier (2hrs), and Barcelona (2h 30 mins).


Ignore the charm of the 12km of sandy beaches if you can, Collioure 20 mins a charming medieval port and town, along with Port Vendres, Banuls sur Mer, Cerebes which brings you across the spanish border in to Port Bou, excusite scenic drive and each little village along the way has something to offer. Within only 2 hours drive you have Gerona 80 mins a dynamic but ancient Spanish city, Barcelona 120 mins. Spain’s second city. Carcassone’s 80 mins its wonderful castles and beauty, Andorra.
