Tamarissière - lovely sea view
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This lovely holiday flat is situated on the Mediterranean coast at 'La Tamarissière' up the river from Agde. From the sun deck there is a panoramic view of the river and the sea beyond.
La Tamarissière is a family seaside resort that can easily be reached by flights to Béziers airport only 15 minutes away (Ryan Air and Flybe). There is a long sandy beach, a pine forest and small shops and restaurants. River and sea fishing is permit-free. From Easter until mid September a ferry service runs across the river to the Grau d'Agde.
The wetlands behind the flat are the resting ground for many migrating birds. Regular visitors are hoopoes, bee eaters and white egrets. If you are lucky you can see flamingos flying over in the early evening from the nearby bird sanctuary.
There are lots of interesting places to visit close by. For example the Cap d'Agde, for tennis, golf, scuba diving, shops and restaurants and night life, the Canal du Midi for boat trips, Béziers for its new shopping precinct, and traditional August 'feria', or Pézenas for its beautiful historical architecture, Sète with its lovely canals and famous water jousting competitions.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region
The Tamarissière is a family resort well known in the area for it's ancient pine forest that backs onto the sandy beach. In the summer months the pine forest is used as the municipal camp site, but from mid September onwards it is open to the public.
The sandy beach is ideal for young children as there are many shallow areas and it is patrolled by life guards.
Agde has had the 'Pavillon bleu' label for the quality of it's bathing for the last few years.
Agde is on the coast in the Languedoc-Roussillon area.
The area has a Mediterranean climate. Most of the rainfall is in the winter months between November and February. The average summer temperature is above 25°C.
Most of the surrounding countryside is given over to vineyards, and there is a wine tasting circuit in the local area.
The area is also renowned for its oyster beds situated on the 'Etang de Thau' beween Agde and Sète.
The Via Domitia Roman way passes by not far away, and the mosaics at Lupian make an interesting detour.
