There is a barbecue and a table tennis table. 4 cycles are at your disposal - perfect for cycling along the Canal du Midi under the trees on a hot day.

The house is ideally placed for the many beach resorts in the area and exploring the countryside along the Canal du Midi.

Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

Languedoc- Roussillon is still one of the most unspoilt regions of France with a spectacular coast line. There is a wealth of wildlife and areas of natural beauty with an abundance of wild flowers. The Canal du Midi, which is only a short walk from the house, is just the start of the conservation area. Watching the flamingos in flight is a rare treat. For the energetic you can walk or cycle along the Canal or simply watch the boats negotiating the lock. Cycling in Spring and Autumn is a delight along the Canal du Midi and a recommended guide is the Cicerone Cycling Guide based on the Canal du Midi and written by a resident of Portiragnes.

The black mountain area was well named. Running east to west. Its sharp northern face is covered by dark oak, pine and spruce forests. The east wind, full of Mediterranean moisture, becomes the "vent d'autan", a fierce hot, dry wind. This is a great place for bird-watching.

There are many historic towns well worth visiting:
Carcasonne, Pezanas, Montpellier, Aigues-Mortes, Pont du Gard, Avignon, Narbonne.

Beziers is L'Herault's 2nd largest town and only 10 mins away by car or local bus. Smart shops, a 12th century cathedral and many bars and restaurants. The Feria takes place during August.

Wine lovers will enjoy the degustations at the vineyards of St Chinian, Faugeres, Marseillan (Noilly Prat tour is excellent), Agde - the list is endless in this area of France.

Cap d'Agde is an elegant seaside resort with marina and sandy beaches. Plenty to do for children with a large water park "Aqualand" .

Pezenas is an old historic town with arts and crafts shops hiding amongst some stunning architechture. Try the local speciality of "Pate de Pezanas".

If you want to make an early morning start spend an interesting day in Barcelona or visit one of the many resorts along the Costa Brava.

Portiragnes

Portiragnes is still a very traditional French village built around its 12th century church which is visible from the house. There are plenty of typical French village shops for your daily supplies and if you choose to eat out there is a selection of restaurants. Bull running through the village takes place in July and August and for the Fete du Vin in October. Portiragnes music festival is in June and the Feria in July.Walk or cycle along the Canal du Midi or simply watch the boats negotiating the lock at Portiragnes village. There are also lovely walks around the nature reserves situated near the beaches. Flamingos, nightingales, serins & turtle doves name but a few of the birds seen on our walks around the fields of the Canal du Midi.During the season, dancing, concerts, exhibitions etc are arranged both at the beach and in the village. All the usual beach activities are available - volley-ball, horse riding, mini golf, water slide, sailing schools.It is certainly worth taking an early morning stroll along the beach to see the sunrise and buy fresh fish from the night catch.The 18 hole course at Golf St Thomas, near Beziers is a challenge to all players. There are also golf courses at Cap d'Agde.

“You just want to keep going back”

Reviewed 12 Feb 2013

This was our 6th visit to this house. It's a really well-equipped house with 3 double bedrooms. The master bedroom has an en suite and balcony. Having its own driveway and garden is useful when you have very young children. As they get older, they appreciate the French village life. The nearest village shop is about one minute's walk away - within 5 minutes are 3 bakers, 2 bars and two restaurants. The village has clearly expanded greatly in recent years, but has a beautiful unspoilt medieval centre, plus the canal du midi . Despite this being a busy tourist area, the village centre is an oasis of relative quiet. It remains truly French - don't expect everyone here to understand English. The nearest beach is at Portiragnes Plage, a couple of miles away, 5 minutes in the car. The beach is as good as you will find. The resort is unpretentious rather than scenic. Loads of places to visit.
