Holiday in the South of FRANCE

                   Delightful Self-catering studio flat right next to the beach

 

At the Mediterranean seaside resort of VALRAS PLAGE (on the coast near Beziers which is between Montpellier and Carcassonne) – on that glorious bit of the Mediterranean coastline that bends round towards Spain)   a studio apartment is available for self-catering holiday rental.

Situated in Residence du Port which is, we make it, just 160 paces to the large sandy BEACH.

The apartment has a balcony and is modern, very clean, furnished ‘Habitat’ style and nicely decorated.

Sleeps two adults. (and up to 2 children)

The town centre is just around the corner with lots of cafes, shops, restaurants and daily market.

Lots to do ….or not …….on the beach or in the sun in a sea-front boulevarde café with a cool drink under a colourful parasol.

Any questions?    we’re happy to help

There is a daily Farmers Market and a fascinating Sea Food Market -an absolute delight, take your camera there are some unusual fish to photograph and very fresh fish to buy for lunch……. maybe on the balcony. Try also one of the fishermen’s stalls ‘Degustation de Coquillages’ fresh shellfish served at the open-air bar with the locals. or buy a prepared Paella.

 

There are excellent restaurants to suit all pockets (about 20 in Valras)

 

The Maire of Valras Plage is Dr Villeneuve and the beach is cleaned every morning, the streets washed and the rubbish is collected daily ! You can drink the tap water, it is tested every week and the results posted at the Mairie for all to see. It is in fact direct from the source and as good as bottled water.

 

There are regular Wine Fetes in Valras and local producers have many outlets in the town at incredibly low prices. 

During the summer months there is a free (provided by the town for the visitors) Open-Air Theatre on the sea-front. If you wish, you can go along and watch a variety of wonderful shows. from dancers, folk singers to full orchestras, from beauty pageants to top Paris Fashion Shows, illusionists to talent shows….and all great fun !

 

For a quieter evening there are several excellent and very welcoming restaurants within Valras and quite a lot of little bars some with live soft music playing.

 

Valras Plage has won an award for catering for children and there is a small children’s funfair near the Open-Air Theatre and slides and swings, slides, zip wires etc on the beach.  It is a family resort.

There is a large English-spokenTourist Office with ideas on what to visit in the area and there are leaflets in the flat.  If you are interested in vineyards,castles, Roman remains, The Cathars, Museums, pony trecking, serious shopping, visit to Spain or Andorra. You will be spoilt for choice

The modern flat is at the rear of Residence du Port - see photo below. There is a small balcony with table and chairs with striped overhead awning if it gets too hot. The balcony is in the sun practically all day. There are no sea views the balcony overlooks a square with trees. There is a tiled floor throughout for coolness and cleanliness and the flat is colourful and furnished ‘Habitat’ style.  It is ideal for two adults. (or with one or two children in full size bunks), There is a separate bathroom with bath/shower and washbasin, and a separate WC. The kitchenette area is fully equipped with cooker, fridge etc. The new flat screen TV receives French channels only – so ideal if you or your children are learning French.

The studio flat is small but ‘just the job’ for your holidays - please do not expect a ‘Hollywood Apartment’ it isn’t……just a modern, clean holiday flat.

 

 All will be ready for your arrival- we have an excellent French cleaner (Katrina) who will get all ready clean linen etc.  We are aware some holiday properties can be a bit ‘uncared for   - ours isn’t !

There are no ‘extras’ – electricity and cleaning are included in the rental although we hope you will leave all correct on departure – thank you

     

 

.In the flat are two brand new bikes please do use them if you wish - no charge, but at your own risk - poddle along up the riverside and through the vineyards to the quaint inland village of SERIGNAN with its tree shaded centre, for lunch and on to the Canal du Midi where you can join the towpath and cycle for miles under the shade of the old crinkled pine trees…. If not by bike then there is the local bus network into Beziers and on into inland villages ... .  In the hills behind Valras are many quaint rural villages with wine domains, markets where you can buy local produce- baguettes, rillettes, pates, fruit etc and sit on the banks of sparkling streams for picnics.

Do visit Carcassonne –an ancient walled city with drawbridges and turrets a ‘must see’ also Montpellier, Orange, Sete - a town of canals with water-jousting and excellent sea food restaurants, or Narbonne with the underground Roman Market area or a bit further pop into Spain and Andorra.
