Description

This contemporary styled apartment has balcony views of the sea, beach, Pyrenees Mountains and is ideal for families and couples wanting all year round sunshine.

The mezzanine layout features accommodation on two levels with high ceilings in the lounge and dining areas. An enclosed private swimming pool and a private gated car park.

The beach is literally a stones throw away and accessed through the communal gardens with no roads to cross. An Aqualand Water Park (1 km), tennis (200m), water sports (100m), horse riding (3km) and international golf course (4km) make this an ideal location for the whole family.

The apartment is located between a long sandy beach on one side and a salt water lagoon and marina on the other. From the apartment there are stunning views of the Mediterranean and the Pyrenees. If that is not enough, the Font Romeu ski resort is only 100km away. In December, you can bask in 20oc weather on the beach one day and be on the ski slopes the next.

Electric wall heaters and oiled filled radiators throughout the apartment. Beach towels are included so you can saved weight in your suitcase. Vacuum cleaner, brush, cloths cleaning agents, iron, ironing board are all supplied. There is a 3G signal available in the apartment for Internet although free connections are also available in local bars and outside St Crprien tourist office (available 24hrs).

In the summer season a road train stops outside the property as part of its route between the centre of St. Cyprien, the commercial and port area (lots of restaurants, etc) and this St Cyprien Sud terminus.

A futher 20 metres away at the salt water lagoon there is a jetty that serves as a water taxi stopping off point on a similar route around St Cyprien to the road train. Both these services run throughout the day and into late evening.

The apartment has a designated private parking, secured by an electronic barrier (remote control). There are well maintained communal gardens, shared swimming pool, and outside showers. The beach can be accessed through the gardens and outside barbecues can be used in these areas (local beach rules permitting at times of year).

St Cyprien enjoys an average of 300 days of sunshine a year. You have your own beach on the door step but St Cyprien also has another 12 km of beach to choose from stretching either side of the town. The beaches are never crowded and there is pleanty of parking in most places.

Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

Historically, the area known as "Languedoc" covered a large part of southern France; Roussillon is a much smaller area, being more or less the area covered by the Eastern Pyrenees department. Roussillon, in the past, was the northern part of Catalonia., and people here still speak Catalan as well as French.

The regional capital of Languedoc-Roussillon is the city of Montpellier, a thriving modern city in the Hérault, with a historic centre; other major cities in the region are Nimes, Narbonne, Sete and Perpignan.

Unlike Provence, Languedoc has a considerable coastal plain, and except in the department of Eastern Pyrenees, much of the coastal area is flat. In the past, the land was swampy and plagued with mosquitoes, which is why tourism did not develop here in the 19th century, as it did on the coast further east. However, the swamps were drained long ago, and the mosquitoes brought under control, leading to the tourist development of this long coastline as from the nineteen-sixties.

Today, the coast of Languedoc is characterised by long sandy beaches, often with plenty of space, and a modern tourist infrastructure, with twentieth-century resorts such as Cap d'Agde, Palavas, or Narbonne Plage. The brash developments of the sixties have had time to mature, parts of the coastline have been recovered for more environmentally sensitive tourism development; and among the quite densely built-up resort areas, there are attractive bits of coastline and hinterland. However, as a general rule, the areas within 20 km of the coast have been extensively developed for tourism in the last forty years.

St Cyprien Sud

St Cyprien enjoys an average of 300 days of sunshine a year. You have your own beach on the door step but St Cyprien also has another 12 km of beach to choose from stretching either side of the town. The beaches are never crowded and there is pleanty of parking in most places.

There is a very good Orange 3G signal (3.5g) in the apartment and I use this with my phone or 3G dongle on the laptop. Obviously you would need to be setup for this.

The whole of the lagoon (opposite front of apartment block) is covered by a free Orange Wireles network (wifi_portstcyp) and you just need to connect to this and then fill in some details (can be bogus) on the login page ('get access codes' or similar) of your browser and then you have free Internet. Only downside of this is you have to sit in the sun during the daytime but here are public benches along the side of the Hotel La laguna on the water front.

The most local shop is about 300 yards away. It is a mini-supermarket open 7 days a week 0730-2000hrs and sells almost everything you would need without having to go into town. There is also a small pizza shop adjacent to it.

About 1.5km along the road into St Cyprien there is a range of shops, restaurants and bars. This is certainly worth a visit and is manageable by foot.

The best range of bars and restaurants are at the port area and here can be found some very good restaurants serving locally caught seafood. The best way to reach this destination is via the road-train that leaves from the front of the apartment block all day and into the late evening. The port is a main stopping off point for the train and an adult return ticket costs only 3.5 Euro. You can also reach the port using a ferry service from the lagoon at a point only 50 metres from the train stop but this is a relatively expensive option.


St Cyprien International Golf Course is one of the best in France. Details are available online,There are two courses - the 'Canigou Etang' championship 18 holes and the 'Saint Cyprien' 9 holes - both with water hazards, and both offer stimulating play for the experienced and the inexperienced golfer. Saint Cyprien is also home to the Patrick Lacroix Golf Academy.

Many water based sports are available, including Kite surfing, Scuba diving, surfing, sailboarding, water skiing. Tennis, squash and badminton courts at La Grande Stade Sports Stadium, just a short walk away. There is also a fitness centre. Les Jardins des Plantes Botanical Gardens offer a pleasant walk at any time of the year. Local attractions include Aqualand waterpark for children and adults, Sigean African Reserve, Golf, horseriding, cycling (bike hire available) and hiking. In the general area, a car journey will have you soaking up the history, art and culture of this interesting part of France.

The Tourism office, located in St Cyprien port, provides maps and extensive information on local attractions. We will gladly provide further information on request.

Shops and facilities within easy walking distance. Hotel with bar, restaurant and spa facilities only 75m away. 30m from miles of sandy beaches. The Waikiki Bar & Restaurant is located on the beach a hundred metres away in season. Beautiful walks around the Lagoon.

Les Capellans commercial centre 10-15min walk with restaurants, boulangerie, patissierie, butchers, fish shop, fruit/veg shop, hairdressers, internet café, newsagents, medical centre, supermarket, wine shop.
