About the home
The villa sits in a traditionally styled gated community and is on three floors with 3 double bedrooms and an open plan ground floor that leads onto a south facing decked area. The waters edge is a few feet away protected by railings making the house safe for young families.
The immediate group of houses has exclusive use of the swimming pool situated within metres of the house (From 15th April to 31st October). The masterbedroom has a private roof terrace for discrete sunbathing or sun downers looking towards the ramparts of Aigues-Mortes.

The Languedoc-Roussillon / Gard region
The house is situated in the Gard and is next to the Camargue Regional Park, a Unesco World Heritage Site famous for its unique ecological balance. The park is home to wild white horses, herds of black bulls and over 400 species of birds including pink Flamingoes. A significant feature of the area are the ‘Gardianes’, the last true cowboys who herd the black bulls on horseback. The park has many stables offering horse rides into the lagoons, vineyards and marshes.
Within 40 minutes drive are the two towns of Nimes and Arles both, with their Roman Amphitheatres, their regular festivals and many other attractions, provide ideal cultural destinations. Further afield are the cities of Avignon, Marseille and Aix en Provence, all well within reach for a day out. Only 20 minutes away is the beautiful city of Montpellier with one of the oldest university in the world. It is also the main commercial and shopping centre for the region and is another perfect destination.
All this together with the beaches of the Mediterranean, the wines and food of the Rhone Delta and over 300 days of sunshine a year combine to make this area a truly fantastic place for your holiday.
The Languedoc Roussillon has many golf courses for all levels of abilities and is a great region for river and sea fishing, riding the wild horses of the Camargue and other sports and activities.

The Aigues Mortes / Quai Saint Louis area
Quai Saint Louis is part of the newest marina development to be built in the South of France. Modelled on traditional fishermen’s houses, the feel is that of a typical Provençal fishing village. The marina opens directly onto the Canal de Sete a Rhone which leads to the Mediterranean sea and its many beaches or links inland to the National Park of the Camargue. It is possible to hire boats locally on an hourly, daily or weekly basis and with the boat moored at the bottom of the garden; you can access all the beaches, the local towns of Aigues Mortes and Grau du Roi and the surrounding region from your door without ever using the car.
A short walk from the house is the medieval walled town of Aigues Mortes. Built in the 13th Century by King Louis IX from which to launch his crusade, the town has changed little. Bristling with restaurants and bars, art galleries and shops, the town provides something for everyone, especially during their festival season when wild bulls run through the streets and the town reverts to its medieval roots.
Grau du Roi
At the mouth of the Canal de Sete about an 8 minute drive from the house is the fishing port of Grau du Roi famous for its fish restaurants and adjacent to this is L’Espiguette beach, several kilometres of golden sand dunes and shallow bathing. Many other beaches line the coast providing a different one for every day of your stay.
