There is some useful information on this site, but the English site is not as up to date as the French version!

The flat is a one bedroom ground floor apartment with terrace that will comfortably sleep 4 adults.
The bedroom is equipped with two single beds that push together to create a double and there is a double (very comfortable!) sofa bed in the living room. For a couple with two children, the living room and terrace can be closed off from the bedroom, bathroom and toilet in the evenings to allow the children to sleep undisturbed while the adults enjoy a film, TV, music or a night on the terrace with a bottle or two of wine!

At the end of the terrace, there is a pathway that runs through the block - turn left and you are 15 metres from the beach, turn right and you are twenty metres from the swimming pool and childrens pool, yet you are as secluded as you could want to be, the main public access to the beaches etc being at the front of the building.......

The living room and a view looking back onto the terrace......

The flat is situated in one of the most famous seaside resorts in the South of France and this really is a sea side apartment situated on Plage Du Mole. It has a habitable area of 40m² with both covered and external terraces and an adjacent private parking space. The flat has a South East facing veranda of 7.15m² + South East facing terrace of 8m² to the secluded rear of the building, only 20m from the pool! The hallway is 3m² and the lounge & kitchen of 16.5m². The bathroom (inc bidet, bath and shower) is 4.5m² & there is a separate W.C. The bedroom is 9m².



A further view of the terrace.

How do you get there?

By Air
Stanstead to Montpellier is the most direct and closest route, operated by Ryanair.
Alternatives and a little longer drive away are flights to Perpignan, Carcasonne or Nimes (from Luton), also all operated by Ryanair, but all are straightforward journeys by road - no more than 2 hours.
The link opposite is to the Ryanair website - there is also a link from there to their partner, Hertz for local car hire.

Hertz Website: https://www.hertz.be/gaq/index.cfm

By Road
A9 Exit AGDE, (15 KM from Motorway) A75 (No toll between Clermont-Ferrand to Agde). RN 112 Between SETE and BEZIERS. Approximately 700 miles from Cherbourg. As you follow the signs from the motorway to Cap D'Agde, follow the dual carriageway to the roundabout, where there is an Agip Petrol Station opposite. Go straight over the roundabout to the traffic lights where you turn right into Rue de la Garrison. The Flat is in the last building on the right and the private parking (bay 160) is just past the flat, also on the right.
(See also the Drive Alive link for routes from French Ferry ports to Cap D'Agde)

 
For Rail travel in France click on the link on the left (Once on the site look out for the Uniuon Jack link to the pages in English!)


Copy this map and print it as large as you can - the detail is very useful!
The flat is shown (highlighted by the white address box). The roads are shown in white, the walks and pathways are those shown in orange.

Some important notes!

Please note: Bed linen is not provided at the flat, however if you take your own, there are three local Landerette's where it can be washed and dried if required.

Traditionally, Sundays see all shops shut in France, however there are two supermarkets at the end of the harbour in Place de la Barbeque that are open on a Sunday - Spar and Casino - useful if you arrive late on a Saturday.

For more general shopping, outlets in tourist areas tend to charge a little more than other areas - from the flat, follow the road to AGDE. You will come to a roundabout where on your right is a warehouse shop called BUT. Turn left here and you are at the entrance to the local Intermarche Supermarket - approx 5 mins from the flat by car. Drive past this and follow the road and you will come to the Hyper U Hypermarket, three minutes further on.

For local shopping and gifts, holiday stuff, as well as some more bars and restaurants, leave the flat by the front door and cross the road walking towards Plage Du Mole. To your left there will be a few bars and the Salbhotel. Next to this is a footpath with numerous shops, bakers, bars, Pharmacie, small supermarket, butchers, grocers etc - follow this path to the end and you will cross a footbridge into the Harbour. At the end of the footbridge you will find a Post Office and the Gendarmerie, as well as a Tourist Office, however the main Tourist Office is in the park shown on the map above.

During the season, Tuesdays, Thursday and Saturday see the local market (enormous) which takes up the parking areas opposite the park - ten minutes walk from the flat - where you can buy just about everything including food and clothing. For those who wish it, on a Sunday morning, follow the road to SETE (where there are some excellent sea food restaurants) you will see signs to Marselan Plage and you will also come across the Marselan Car Boot Fair - again this tends to have some very nice items reasonably priced, but it may test your French a little!.

Days out? There are about 50 leaflets in the flat for the various local attractions - all within an easy days journey. These range from Vineyards, Ancient Monuments, Castles, Churches and Chateaux to boat trips on Le Canal Du Midi, Market Days in local villages, Amusement Parks, Exhibitions, Caves and Grottos (all natural!) Golf Courses, etc etc. There are entertainments for all ages, the very athletic and the less so - something there for everyone!

AGDE town is also only a short journey (4k) away - worth a visit, especially on Market Day - there are numerous shops in the old town as well as Banks etc if you need them. There are also a number of Restaurants on the edge of the river which is still the home of part of the local fishing fleet.

SETE, about 18k away along the beach road is a very old fishing port. If you follow signs into the town and park, a walk behind the fishing warehouses reveals a number of excellent and reasonably priced seafood restaurants. MONTPELLIER some 20k further on is also worth a visit, particularly the old town.

To the south, there is the Palace of Majorca in PERPIGNAN and numerous beaches on the way down to COLLIOURE, probably the most picturesque place on the whole coastline with its Fort, Royal Palace and Chapel as well as a good selection of artisans shops, bars and restaurants.

A little further for the more adventurous is Spain - from Collioure, only about 30k from the Spanish Border and three hours from BARCELONA by train.
