Location description from owner

The Occitanie 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.

If you are interested in any of these activities and would like help and advice in booking them prior to your holiday, we have linked up with a company who provide this service for Golf and Fishing.

Quai Saint Louis

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.

Aigues Mortes
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.

“Excellent location and holiday "home"”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2016

We spent 7 nights at this wonderful house in Aigues Mortes. Both adults and kids had an amazing time. The house is in a great location as you can walk into the walled town in about 10 minutes by the river. It’s also well-equipped and you can get a sense of how homely the place is when you settle in. It’s also on the water too which means lots to look at in terms of boats and wildlife. We especially loved access to the pool. The other residents are very friendly and keen to chat if you know a little bit of French. The owners were on hand to make suggestions when we asked for advice and the service we received off them was superb. The location is also good for nearby activities too. We would stay here again!

“A perfect home from home”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2013

From the initial booking inquiry to the return of the keys this was the perfect holiday destination. It is clear on arrival that you are walking into a special place, nothing was too much trouble and the place was immaculate. The house is very well appointed and has an idyllic spot within a small gated community, making security excellent. The pool was clean and the walk into town (when the bridge was down) was a pleasant stroll. The surrounding area is clean, friendly and has lots to see and do for all ages, (we managed to entertain 2 teenagers for a fortnight) The owners obviously take great care and pride in the property and this was easy to see throughout the house. We can't wait to return.

Owner's reply: Thanks for you great comments, we look forward to welcoming you back.

“Canoeing for coffee and croissants? Holidays don 't get better than this...”

Reviewed 14 Nov 2011

The house is beautiful and lends itself to any combination of guests, whether family or friends. I went with a group of mums looking for relaxation with a bit of sightseeing and sunbathing thrown in. I was blown away by Montpellier; stunning architecture, lots of history with a really lively vibe (uni town) and great restaurants. The beaches we visited were a 15-20 min drive away and were clean, safe with a variety of cafes and bars. Managed to get some decent swimming in to earn the croissants. The best bet though for me, the very best bit, was waking to a clear blue sky and paddling in the canoe from the back gate, down the canal into the ancient walled town of Aigues Mortes for a cafe creme and a pain au chocolate. Brilliant. Can't recommend highly enough.
