Wonderful place to stay and a great area to explore
About the Owner
My wife and I live in the UK and have two boys here at school. We both work so holidays are very special to us especially as the boys get older and want more time to themselves.
Guestbook comments from the owner
"The villa is tastefully decorated with lots of living space for a family of 4. We have rented many properties in France over the years and this villa certainly was at the top. We would highly recommend this villa".

Wonderful place to stay and a great area to explore
All the reviews were spot on about the accommodation, the location, and the ease to travel to so many amazing attractions in that part of France. We are already talking about returning back later in the year. A wonderful place to stay, enjoyed every minute.
Another fantastic Stay
Another great stay in a wonderful villa. Enjoyed breakfast overlooking the Marina and cycling into Aigues Mortes for evening meals. Uzes on Wednesdays (market day) followed by afternoon kayaking through Pont du Gard deserved two visits this year and Marseille was breathtaking (advise going on the bus tour to get an overview of the whole area). Great villa and region with lots to see and do - we'll be back!
Great autumn break
We enjoyed our stay at the Marina despite some very vocal ducks!! The villa is very comfortable and well equipped (the Molton Brown products were a very nice touch), and Debbie Brake (local manager) was quite flexible and helpful. Despite an unpromising forecast, the weather was fine and we spent some very pleasant evenings eating dinner and playing canasta on the terrace. Since we know the surrounding area quite well we decided to stay local, explored on our bikes (serious bikers should note that good biking routes are limited), ate lots of moules and huitres, sampled the vin de sable and went for long walks along an almost deserted Espiguette beach. All in all, a great autumn break.
Wow - our 2nd visit and luckily we were able to stay 3 weeks this time! There are still things we haven`t done and places to go. Knowing the villa we were going to gave me complete peace of mind on our journey down which I could enjoy. We decided to visit Barcelona as it is only just under 4 hours drive away and it was great.
A very comfortable home from home which I can totally recommend and I am not ruling out a 3rd visit!
This was our second visit and was just as good as the first. The accommodation is of an excellent standard with everything you need - a real home from home. This is a great base for exploring the region and we'll definitely be back next year!
lovely holiday in a lovely villa! Very well equipped and furnished - we had a very relaxing time here. From the moment we opened the front door it became "home".Lovely to sit outside or upstairs on the balcony in the sunshine. Whether the weather is good or bad or if you just want a quiet time this villa is great. A big plus for us is the handrail on the stairs going all the way up as my wife has trouble with stairs!Being in a gated area gives you good peace of mind.
We are looking forward to returning in 2014 as there is still a lot to see. It is the first time we have stayed in a property like this and I would have no hesitation in reccommending it .
From the Owner
“We found the marina development - Port du Roy/St Louis - at the French property exhibition at Olympia in 2005, we bought off-plan and the dream unfolded. We watched the marina develop over the years, often frustratingly slowly, but finally moved in October 2007. The area in and around Aigues Mortes was unknown to us, and half the excitement was the thought of being able to fully explore and feel at home in a new part of France. The ancient fortified walled town of Aigues Mortes is only a short walk (approx. 15 minutes) and has many good restaurants and bars, the beaches are a 20 minute drive away.”
