Property Summary

South of France, beachfront Villa with Heated Pool and Air-Conditioning in the Languedoc-Occitanie, sleeps 6

Heated Pool (to apprx 28 degrees!) 

Long weekends possible in low season

Few houses in Languedoc or even on the South of France coast 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.

The villa has 3 bedrooms (2 of which have air-conditioning) and 3 bathrooms.

It has three terraces, one of which runs the entire length of the living room and is covered, the other two are situated on the garden side of the house. The garden is an oasis of greenery and mature trees, including Mediterranean pines, which provide much needed shade from the South of France heat in the summer.

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 sand will bring you to boulangeries, cafes and restaurants either in Grau d'Agde or Rochelongue.

Stunning beachfront location and a great base from which to explore all this part of the South of France has to offer.

Accommodation Details

The bathroom with bath and wash hand basin is within the bedroom. Independent wc.

Outside Details

Beachfront villa in the South of France

This villa is exceptional as it has direct access onto a South of France beach, plus a 6m x 5m x 1.6m heated swimming pool (between 23 and 28 degrees) with Roman steps, removable fence and child barrier. A few steps down from the terrace there is an outside shower and a washing line - this also leads into the front garden.

The holiday villa has 3 large paved terraces with garden furniture. One is on the sea side and the other 2 on the garden side of the house.

The large terrace which runs all along the side of the living dining room is partially covered and can almost be considered as the living room extension. It has some nice outside furniture - a table with chairs for al fresco dining and an outside sofa with cushions. There are also a number of sun loungers by the pool. At the end of the pool terrace an electrically operated transparent blind can be lowered as a wind-break.

The Owner has a wooden barrier for the living room window and a barrier for the pool - he has grandchildren himself!

From this large terrace there is a gate which leads directly down to the beach - there is a rope hand rail on both sides and a small boat house. This beach rarely gets busy simply because there is no parking for the general public apart from the residential houses along that stretch of beach.

The secure garden provides a lush green oasis with mature Mediterranean pines, oleanders, Phoenix palm trees and well watered grass. The watering system is automatic so sprinklers will come on at certain times during the day/night. The entry to the property is through automatic remote control gates.

Swings for children are in the garden too.

A third paved terrace houses the outside living area. There is a built in BBQ and more garden furniture for outside dining. 

Parking for 3 cars inside property gates and a carport.

So all in all a perfect villa for family holidays or a weekend break in the South of France.

Client Comments

We stayed at this wonderful villa with our 2 small children in September. What a stunning location and and stunning villa. If you have small children (or even grown up children!) this place is all you need. The beach is literally on your door step and the sea a 10 second walk from the bottom gate. If you did fancy a change from the sand and sea you can enjoy the privacy of your own swimming pool and beautiful veranda perfect for dinner and drinks with the most gorgeous views and sunsets. The villa itself is exceptionally well equipped and laid out and is luxury throughout. The owners have young grandchildren themselves and are very understanding to a young families needs; the house reflects this with inside toys available; children's equipment for outside and the garden; and a safe set up all round with a fenced off pool, sealed back garden with automatic gates and windows that children cant open. The local area is well set up. Agde is nice and has a very good market, there is a huge hypermarche 5 minutes up the road and 15 minutes away a huge holiday bay full of entertainment for adults and children. Montpellier, Narbonne and Beziers are well within driving distance also if you fancy a break from the amazing views and beach (we only went for 1/2 a day to Montpellier as we didn't want to leave the villa!). Finally, the owners couldn't have been kinder.Their English is limited but this does not matter at all and they are very welcoming and attentive. They were there to meet us on arrival, show us around, make sure we knew where everything was and did the same on leaving. A wonderful and very happy stay. Merci! Mr A, September 2019 South France Villas client
The home was absolutely fabulous. Set right on the beach, it was like having your own private space to relax, lay out, and watch arguably some of the nicest sunsets in Europe. Spacious and comfortable, we could have stayed indefinitely at the villa. It was like being home with all the creature comforts to make it a perfect stay. I literally wouldn't have changed a thing! The hosts were also lovely. They even were kind enough to pick up my parents who had flown in from the States. Needless to say, we lucked out taking this vacation. Elle, September/October 2019
The pictures did not lie, the villa really is right on the beach. The beach was a dozen or so steps down from the patio, with a gate, so you felt very safe. The sea very safe to swim in and lots of fishes to look at and shells to collect. The owners greeted us at the gate and took us on a tour of the villa and the grounds. All the essentials were stocked up along with several bottles of wine and beer, a really lovely thought and much appreciated. It was like they had just left the villa for a few days. All we needed was a quick food shop 5 mins drive up the road and we were all set for the week. Everything worked and if you had any questions the owner replied by text really quickly. The house rules were minimal and all very sensible. We fell into the routine of breakfast up the road at a little patisserie, travel to a local city or village or wine cave, then back at 3ish for a swim in the sea, followed by a play in the lovely villa pool. Most evenings we ate in the villa with the fantastic kitchen with glasses and crockery enough for a party! The sunsets were amazing, even the stormy night was incredible to watch from the patio under cover. The local town is a 15 min stroll up the beach, there are so many restaurants and cocktail bars. The best family holiday memories are made in places like this, we cannot recommend it highly enough - go! Jean B, September 2019
LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION – this wonderful house has the best of them all. We will always remember the many dinners and drinks overlooking the beach and ocean watching the spectacular sunsets. The beautiful garden where we sat talking, eating and listening to music many a night. The owners couldn’t have been more accommodating and friendly, always available to answer any questions we had and keeping up with us when we had some health issues. The house is beautifully and tastefully decorated with everything you might need. We were very sorry to have to leave again - and yes, some tears were shed - as we could have stayed forever! The house felt like our home away from home, which is exactly what we look for in a holiday home! Mrs. H. South France Villas Client September 2018
The villa was beautiful, the location perfect and the owners were extremely helpful. Could not recommend enough, we will be back!Mrs S, South France Villas Client August 2018
Everything was perfect: accommodation, welcome, location. We loved walking along the beach to the boulangerie every morning. The views from the sitting room were amazing.South France Villas client.
We have just returned from a fabulous week in this villa and it was truly wonderful. The beach and pool were perfect for the children and the owners very kindly provided the use of floats, water toys, beach toys and a canoe! The garden is tranquil and private and when it was too hot for the beach, the children played frisbee or ball games out back. There were six of us staying, but plenty of room for privacy with the many and varied patios and balconies. The sunsets and star gazing were highlights, as was the daily market in town. The owners were so kind and thoughtful, they provided all the comforts you needed and made our stay exceptional. Thank you for a perfect holiday! Jodie, South France Villas Client, Aug/Sept 2016
Stunning villa with spectacular views. From bed to sea in less than 2 minutes! Ideal location for anyone looking for a relaxing holiday. The owners were very welcoming and considerate. Thank you for a lovely week! Family Ryan, South France Villas Client, May 2015
A most relaxing week in a comfortable and well-appointed villa, a stunning location. We cannot wait to return!May 2015
An idyllic place, beautiful, luxurious and calm. A sublime, relaxing, spacious and comfortable house with great owners. Chris, May 2015,From the Guest Book
I would like to thank you for an absolutely unforgettable week we spent in H44 Les Rocailles. We really appreciated not only the place itself but also the spirit of the villa with adorable Provence soul. And I would like to stress the exceptional approach of the owners.....they are really great, helpful and very customer oriented. We are really very satisfied by our holidays we spent there. We wish you a successful season and lot of clients so satisfied as we are.  In fact, I worked in the tourism for years so that I can appreciate the really professional service of your agency on the one side and the really client oriented behaviour of the property owner on the other one. The next year is very far now but my children have already started to look at your site where we can pass our common time the next summer :-) Katerina Cempirkova, South France Villas Client, June 2012
A magnificent house, an idyllic spot, facing the sea with a private and direct access to the beach, charming, welcoming Owners, all went well with our lovely holiday.  Vincent J, Belgium, May 2012  We had a lovely time staying in this villa. The owners are lovely, helpful, welcoming and so accommodating. The villa itself was fantastic. We did not know what to expect but with two little ones of 4 years old the place is great. A beautiful garden for play and the beach at your doorstep, internet and some English satellite TV channels. We were able to sit and relax on the terrace with a book and a strong coffee and keep an eye on them, while they amused themselves for hours. There were toys so no stress about having to buy or bring. Easy walk up the beach to town and supermarket shopping up the road - could nip out for croissants and baguettes, great what a difference having it fresh rather than stale and rubbery from the supermarket. Lots of facilities and activities for families with children and the marina and little places tucked away near the harbour for lunch and dinner in Agde. I would recommend this villa and the owners are so lovely they made sure we had all we could possibly need. I am really looking forward to going again. It is really home away from home. No actually better in alot of ways than home. Thank you. Dodie Baker, October 2011 Just thought I would let you know how impressed we were with the Villa. Really lovely people who we managed to communicate to with a little French and a little English - it is not often a holiday villa exceeds expectations, but this one definitely did. With it's garage being perfect for my car as well there was nothing not catered for and even an excellent beach restaurant within walking distance! Many thanks, Regards. John Kelly, June 2011 Just a note to tell you how Tricia and I got on down at Les Rocailles, we did want to put comments on your website but couldn't work out how to so I would very much like you to add ours to the others, we did tell the Owners that we would so don't let me down :). The villa lived up to all our expectations, more so because as well as charm and beauty it retains a huge sense of homeliness, a very comfortable feeling. The family greeted us as if we were returning family friends, so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. Everything about the holiday was wonderful and we would definitely return. I thought I was going to have to prise Tricia out with a crowbar and she got all tearful saying thanks to Madame and then Madame got tearful ... !! Kate Potter, October 2010 A brief note prompted by the return of our holiday photos. Les Rocailles was a dream - the best beach, best views, fabulous barbeque area. If I have a criticism it's that your photos - nor ours - do it justice. To walk through the front door and see the sun sparkling on the Med is a sight I won't forget in a hurry - or to wake up in the morning to that amazing view across to the Pyrenees! The owners were so kind and helpful as well. All in all our best holiday yet. Thanks for the prompt and efficient service - we'll be back. Chris & Elaine Humphris, September 2010 We have just returned from a week’s holiday here and we had the most fabulous time. Every aspect of the house and garden has been carefully thought out and no detail is too much trouble. It is fully equipped and beautifully decorated. Comfy beds, great showers, big sofas, amazing outdoor eating area, a lovely garden and the fabulous beach is on your doorstep. The owners were charming and helpful. There is a great market every day in the nearby town as well as all the shops, bars and restaurants you could need. We forgot we had a car – just using the on site bikes or walking. Everything is nearby and it is truly brilliant. We will be back for sure. Thank you so much! Kate Perry, September 2010 Just a note to say that we very much enjoyed the villa. The weather was fantastic. The owners were very nice and very helpful. Trevor Sampson, June 2010
