“Wonderful, just wish we could have stayed longer !” We were looking for a property on the Med, that was drivable as our first family (5 month old baby) holiday, this place was recommended to us and fitted the bill well. It's a fair drive down from the UK to Portiragne Plage but very worth it. It has a real Mediteranean feel to it and the property is a real home from home with everything most people would want / need. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a fair sized open plan fully stocked kitchen (incl washing machine and dish washer) come lounge with hifi / tv etc and a great conservatory with sliding doors to open it out onto the ample patio that has a built in BBQ.
The gated complex L'Orangier sits in has parking right outside, handy if you need to ferry stuff to and from the back of the car. It also has a pool a 30 second walk away which is clean and has toilets (not that you really need them as you are so close to the apartment) and a lifeguard (read, security man who checks you have appropriate swimwear (speedos only, no bermuda's!) and a blue wrist band confirming you are a resident of Les Clos). It could do with some sun loungers and umberella's though as it can be quite exposed in the mid day sun.
Otherwise there is the beach which is a 10min walk or a 2 min drive (plenty of parking). Big, sandy, clean - perfect !
The surrounding area is typical southern French and full of vinyards and little Caves selling wine and fresh fruit/veg. The main town of Portiragne is just a short drive and has a selection of large supermarkets if you are cooking for yourself. The airport at Bezier is a stones throw if you decied to fly down.
To sum up, I loved this place and would not hesitate to recommend it. Everything you need to make your stay comfortable has been thought of and it's in a lovely part of France. I wish we could have stayed longer !
