The villa was amazing. Location was breathtaking and the service and responsiveness by South of France Villas and the owner was outstanding from the start. We had an issue with the electrics on the first night and the owner turned up with an electrician on Sunday afternoon to fix it - which was so impressive. The only (slight) improvement would be a fan in the bedrooms as it got... read more

Property Summary

Contemporary Beachfront Villa near Agde, South of France, sleeps 4 to 6.

Friday arrival/departure possible in low season.

This beach front villa now available for holiday rentals in Rochelongue, near Grau d'Agde has the most enviable position, with steps going down to a long white sandy beach. Few holiday houses in Languedoc or even in the South of France can boast a position such as this. Exceptionally well situated, with sea views to take your breath away - on a clear day you can see the majestic Pyrenees (sometimes still snow-covered in May) and even Cap Creus in Spain, this house is a haven of well-designed tranquillity.

This South of France beach front holiday villa was built in the 50's, and does have that slightly 'Corbusier' feel to it. It was completely re-designed and overhauled in 2007, and has contemporary interiors, as well as a huge wooden-decked terrace floating above the water line. An exposed modern wooden beamed structure with its high ceilings enhances the already airy living room space.

It has 2 terraces, one of which is accessed via the living room and the other one is covered and has a contemporary outside 'dining-room'.

There is a large garden with some old vines, and the property is gated, so one can park 2 cars inside the property gates.

The 'house beach' rarely gets crowded even in July and August simply because there is no public parking near the house. In June and September it is almost private.

A ten minute walk along the beach will bring you to boulangeries, cafes and restaurants either in Grau d'Agde or Rochelongue.

A perfect location to explore the beaches on a family holiday in the Languedoc area of the South of France

Client Comments

The villa was amazing. Location was breathtaking and the service and responsiveness by South of France Villas and the owner was outstanding from the start. We had an issue with the electrics on the first night and the owner turned up with an electrician on Sunday afternoon to fix it - which was so impressive. The only (slight) improvement would be a fan in the bedrooms as it got very hot at night - but this is a minor factor. The views of the sea from the terrace were perfect and we had a wonderful week. All queries and dealings with South of France villas were handled swiftly and professionally and the villa matched the description perfectly. The owner could not have been more helpful. Restaurants a short walk in either direction (beach or road) and everyone was friendly and helpful. Thank you very much. We will be back! South France Villas Client, July 2016
We had a great time staying at La Bagatelle and would love to come back next year! The house exceeded our expectations in every way, and it made for a perfect honeymoon. The owner was very friendly and helped us to get our bearings on arrival. Thanks again for the great service! Jo Phenna, Sept 2010 I'd just like to say we had a great time in the holiday villa, so thanks for a great job there and to our host families/people who were very hospitable and pleasant! Sophie and Doug Chadd, June 2010
