We have now lived in Aigues Vives for 12 years.

We appreciate its peace and beauty with the Parc Naturel all around us, and vines as far as the eye can see!

The views to the Mediterranean on numerous walks are breathtaking.

Total tranquility in an area with so much to do

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fabulous stay with 3 children (8-11). Lots for the kids to do - canyoning, kayaking and carting were the favourites - and yet very relaxing too with some great eateries nearby. Would thoroughly recommend.
