Family House In Agay, Cote D'Azur, Provence

Overview

Property

Updated: 02-Oct-2016
House in Agay, Var, Provence Cote DAzur, France - Superb Location With Sea View, 5 Minutes Walk To Beach

The house is situated in a superb position about 200m from the Mediterranean sea, with the dramatic and colourful Esterel mountains behind. In five minutes on foot (or two minutes by car) you can reach the sandy beach and the shops and restaurants of the village of Agay. In summer months, there are opportunities for various watersports, and on Wednesday mornings year-round the local open air market is in full swing. St Raphael is about 20 minutes drive and has many restaurants and shops, covered market, marina and crazy golf, boat trips along the coast and to St Tropez. The ancient town of Frejus, with Roman ruins and its mediaeval cathedral, is a further 10 minutes beyond St Raphael.

About the Owner

My parents bought this house when it was built in the 1970s, and it has been (and continues to be) our regular holiday house ever since. We live in London.

Home from home with gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

When we first arrived at this lovely property, one of my teenage sons said, "Wow, it feels like someone's home". He couldn't have put it better. This is obviously a well loved family home and we were very lucky to make it our home for a week.

The location is fabulous. Only a few minutes from the gorgeous beach, local shops and restaurants. Long Camp beach, or "Tikki Plage" is only a couple of minutes away in the car and very quickly became a family favourite. Our teenage sons also enjoyed Waterworld at Le Dramont, a huge inflatable obstacle course.

We did manage to leave the beaches for a day to go to Monaco, where we visited the palace, the aquarium and the marina, an unforgettable day out.

Nearly every evening was spent on the terrace, playing cards and watching the sun go down, the sea views from there and the main bedroom are superb.

We all loved our time in Agay and would not hesitate to go back again one day. PS If, like us, you enjoy reading, don't fill your suitcases with books (like we did), there are more than enough to read in this wonderful little house.

Fantastic Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great two week stay and wouldn't hesitate to return. Its a hidden gem of a place in what can be a hectic bustling Riviera!

The accommodation is relaxed and suitable for families. The addition of a wall mounted shower would be great but it wouldn't put us off from staying here again.

The view from the patio terrace and main bedroom is just stunning and a real delight to wake up to every morning. The beach is a mere 5 minutes walk down the hill and there are some lovely restaurants and shops along the front.

We loved the fact Agay was so relaxed, family friendly and generally quiet. Its a fantastic base to explore all along the coast and we had great day trips to Cannes, St Tropez and the Rothschilds villa in Saint jean cap ferrat.

Michael and Sue (the owners) were very helpful and attentive and I would certainly recommend staying here.

Great location, lovely property

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed a lovely week at the house. The views and location were wonderful. Nice and quiet location, but with easy access to the coast and all it offers. We will definitely return for another visit.

Wonderful view

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed a week in Agay. The house is simply furnished but very practical with 2 decent sized bedrooms.It is ideally located with a fantastic view of the sea from the house and sunny terrace and only a short walk (max 5 mins) to the beach and the shops / restaurants etc just a little further on. We hardly used our car as everything was so close. The sea was very warm - great for swimming and snorkeling.

Delightful Holiday Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic 2 week holiday. The cottage was all as described. Well maintained and organised. Clean and comfortable throughout. Owner very helpful when we had any questions. Would benefit from a couple of good quality relaxing garden chairs and an extra fan but we were there during a heatwave. We hope to return again as there are some beautiful places still to visit. This was our second holiday to the area and we want to go again. Great for families. Enjoy!

Lovely Sunny Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at the house in Agay and we loved it as much as the 1st time! The house itself has everything a family needs for a relaxed holiday, beach equipment, bbq, various games, a good kitchen, comfy accommodation etc. There is a super view of the bay from the terrace and we found the area to be family friendly with a mix of nationalities (mostly French & Italian) The village and beach are reached with a 15 min walk down the hill and has all the amenities needed - supermarket, café, restaurant, lovely ice cream, bank, beach shops & tourist info. The beach itself is clean and great for snorkelling, especially if you walk around the bay a little. There are lifeguards on duty and it has a safe family feel. There is a market on Thurs am & Sat/Sun eve during the summer and there is a good bus route to St Raphael and a small rail station where you can travel to St Tropez, Cannes, Nice etc. All in all - we had a great time (again) and I`m sure we will return in a year or 2!

150 metres (3 minutes) down the hill to wide sandy beach. Numerous water sport activities open in summer (eg kayaking, windsurfing, boat trips). Along the coast within 20 minutes in either direction are a great variety of other beaches, sandy and pebbly, popular or secluded, and some good snorkelling off the rocks. At any time of year you can walk along the sentier littoral as far as St Raphael.

Travel:

Nice Airport: 75 minutes drive, mostly on the motorway.

11 hours driving from Calais, or 9 hrs from Paris.

Major railway station at St Raphael (20 minutes away); there is a local train from St Raphael to Cannes via Agay several times a day. It is therefore possible to reach the house by train from the airport, with a 20 minute walk.

Distances:

Agay village: 200m on foot; 500m by car.

West: St Raphael 15km; St Tropez 50km, Aix-en-Provence 125km. East: Cannes 25km; Nice 70km; Italy 100km.

Inland: Draguignan 40km; Gorges du Verdon 85km; Alps 150km.

Further Details:

For Art lovers: there are galleries of international significance in Cannes, Nice, Vence, Biot, Cagnes, St Tropez and more, including the homes of Renoir, Matisse and others.

For nature lovers: the Esterel provides fabulous walking opportunities, as do the hills and gorges inland, stretching back to the maritime alps. The coast between Agay and Cannes includes almost the only undeveloped stretch of natural rocky coastline left in the Cote d'Azur.

The village of Agay has, besides the Wednesday market, a tourist office, bank, post office, pharmacy, several cafes and restaurants, 2 small supermarkets and other groceries, shops for beach wear and beach kit, souvenirs etc. We like to use a small centre commercial at one end of the village where there is a great boulangerie & breakfast cafe (now with wifi access), supermarket, fishmonger, the laundry, and two or three restaurants.
