“Lovely house and pool in beautiful but fairly remote areof France” This house has a very cool and minimalist feel to it but it is cosy at the same time. The large table under the overhanging wisteria on the pergola is a godsend for very hot days. Some small folding garden type chairs to carry around chasing shade or sun would be good, as wooden ones are very heavy. Although remote the nearest road is a main thoroughfare to places nearby. The nearby lakes make a swimming day with a beach possible. Nearby Orlargus is a must to visit and so French. We would reccomend this house to people who like beauty and peace and quiet.
“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 !
“Perfect. Best Ever Holiday” Birlliant location fabulous garden and large pool with diving was great
Walks on restricted roads , bikes provided for trips , loads to see and do
but local village and restaurants very much in character of small french village
I really enjoyed being near the beach but not on the beach although having seaviews
It alloed us dip in and out of that packed beach culture but also big open beach areas on west beach where there were lots of on beach activities beach voleyball rounders and sailing organised daily
I will come back to learn kite surfing really looks like fun
