Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Aigues-Mortes, France your home away from home

Aigues-Mortes is a phenomenal walled city on the marshes of the Petite Camargue, in the Nimes area of Languedoc-Roussillon. Taking a holiday rental in Aigues-Mortes is a completely unique experience, like living inside a castle. The whole village is encased in thick, medieval walls. Access to Aigues-Mortes is by 10 fortified gates which appear at various points of the perimeter. The walled extremity of Aigues-Mortes is one of the most inspiring sites in the whole of southern France, but it is the remarkably preserved historical treasures of the town that have propelled it onto UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

Things to do in Aigues-Mortes, France

Built in the 13th century, Aigues-Mortes looks much like it did then. If you are travelling to find the best example of medieval military defences, look no further than Aigues-Mortes. The 13th century Tour de Constance is a vast tower in the northern corner of the town, offering stunning views out over the marshland that surrounds Aigues-Mortes, all the way to the purple outline of the mountains in the distance. The Cathedrale Saint Sauveur, Place de la Mairie and Palais de l’Archeveche are all well worth investigating from the safety of a house inside Aigues-Mortes. When you first arrive at an Aigues-Mortes holiday rental, the hour long walk around the town walls is an exceptional way to mark your arrival. There is plenty of shopping to be done within the town walls, and the restaurants inside serve some fantastic local dishes, refraining from the allure of international cuisine, instead, staying true to their roots.

The name Aigues-Mortes means ‘dead waters’, referring to the salt water marshes that surround the town’s walls. There is a small marina in Aigues-Mortes, providing locals and visitors with access to the sea, which due to the shifting sands of the delta, is now a couple of miles from the town. As you sail down the Canal du Rhone which cuts through the marshes, you can see an amazing array of birdlife, in particular the eye-catching pink of flamingos. The beach of Le Grau-du-Roi is within easy access of a holiday villa in Aigues-Mortes, with plenty of space, clean, soft sand and clear water. There is even a small, but hugely interesting Seaquarium at the end of the beach.

The Camargue Regional Park is a wonderful park, also listed by UNESCO on the world heritage list due to the unique ecological conditions within the park. Encompassing over 350,000acres of wetland, salt marshes and pastures at the mouth of the Rhone, the park is an excellent place to walk, cycle and ride the beautiful Camargue horses that are bred so beautifully in the area.

It was ideally located for boating, cycling and only a short drive to the beaches. Everything we needed was in the house and it felt very homely rather than just a holiday let. We enjoyed breakfast and barbecues on the terrace, and the local wine on the roof terrace in the evenings. It was so peaceful but loved watching the boats, ducks and fish go by. The pool was only a 2 minute walk from the house and never too busy. There were only ever 2/3 other families there. The short walk (10 mins) or cycle into Aigues Mortes along the canal was very pleasant. There are lots of places to visit and sites to see in the area and suited all ages. We look forward to returning again.

It was immaculately clean, and with two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs and double bedroom and bathroom downstairs, ideal for a family or couples. The manager responded quickly to messages when we had a little trouble with an over filling loo, and met us at the start and end of our month at the time arranged. The shared pool was a bonus, and we often had it almost to ourselves. Only ten minutes to the beach, we spent most days in Le Grau du Roi, and did very little sight seeing! It was so hot! However we know the area well and it really has something for everyone, from big cities to fun fairs. Restaurants around Aigues Mortes need exploring for yourselves, but local supermarkets and markets ensure plenty of ingredients for those who prefer to cook in the well equipped kitchen. I certainly would recommend this property.

The garden area was great, the TV and should system were excellent. Loved the pool and used nearly every day. We missed air con, as we had 30+ most days and low 20's every night.
