Sandra Foster purchased this villa in 2008
Renting a well equipped house with its own terrace and gate and a parking space is what I would definitely choose if I was going on holiday. The outdoor space is very important in Summer and is part of the enjoyment of the holiday.
We place great emphasis on providing guests with all the comforts from home such as a dishwasher, washing machine, coffee machine, kettle, toaster, full size cooker with oven and grill, plenty of quality crockery and cutlery, cooking utensils and saucepans. All of this makes self catering a pleasure.
WIFI has been installed in this property and is included in the rental rates.
Although I speak English, I (Sandra) also speak French and can write in French, so I am happy to receive enquiries from English speaking people and French people and others.
I always respond to all enquiries even though we don't have availability. So I look forward to receiving your enquiry.
If this villa is not available please for details of other villas that may be available.
This property is situated in a beautiful mediterranean style residence with a surrounding fence and remote gates for security and privacy. A car parking space is provided with the villa. The residence is quiet and yet not far from shops and the beach (Plage Richelieu).
Plage Richelieu is a beautiful sandy beach with beach facilities.
We stayed at this villa for a week just as the season in Cap d'Agde was starting. First time visitors but we would definitely return as it's position in terms of location alone this is perfectly suited. Five minutes very pleasant walk takes you to the Port and access to all that the Cap has to offer. We didnt hire a car as there was really no need. Transport links are only a couple of minutes from the villa as well.
The villa itself is just fantastic. Exceptionally comfortable and homely with everything you could need for a relaxing holiday and in a complex that was equally as picturesque. The communal pool wasn't open as we were early in the season but it's another great feature.
Special mention to Sandra who was a wealth of knowledge and happy to answer questions about the local area we had and arranged our transport to and from the airport. All round a first class service that made everything so smooth and we will be returning.
The villa feels like home because you have all the things you need, just like home (even WIFI). The garden/terrace is very private and invites you to take a sunbath. The owners are very friendly people who want their guests to enjoy and feel at home. The villa was clean and well maintained. There are lots of local markets to visit. Renting a bike (ATB) is a nice way to discover the environment, cycling to Agde or Grau d'Agde is just 15 minutes. Evening strolls to the harbor with the sun setting in the sea while enjoying your drink at a variety of bars contributes to that holiday feeling. Enough to do and see in Cap d'Agde and the Languedoc area, whether you want an active holiday or a more laid back holiday.
Villa Agathea has a nice spatious garden/terrace so you can eat outside with the whole family. The kitchen has everything you need including a washing machine which means you can save on packing extra clothes. Most shops for daily groceries and the beach are only a few minutes walk. Montpellier, Beziers, Nimes, Agde, Carcassonne and Cap d'Agde are worth while. Golfers can enjoy the beautiful Golf Course which is close to Villa Agathea. The villa itself is well maintained. If you like fish you should visit Chez le Belge in Cap d'Agde.
We stayed at the villa at Captivantes for nearly two weeks in September 2014 and had a very enjoyable time. The residential complex was located approximately a 5 minute walk from local shops, these included a couple of small supermarkets, a pharmacy and a patisserie, which was great for breakfast croissants and the like. There was a large supermarket about 10 minutes away by car near to Agde. It was about 15/20 minutes to walk to the beach which was very pleasant, aqua land and the theme park. Aqua land was closed and the fair ground was very quiet at this time of year.
The main port which is very pleasant and busy with shops, bars and restaurants is about 20 min walk away.
The villa was clean and tidy and was equipped with all you would need and as described in the advert. There was an air conditioning unit downstairs and a powerful fan in the bedroom.
In the garden there was a dining table and chairs as well as a couple of sun loungers. The garden was bordered by bushes which gave a sense of privacy with areas of sun and shade to suit.
The general area around the residence was quiet and peaceful and there are wooded walks and plenty of cycle paths nearby. There are plenty of villages, towns and cities to visit by car. Travelling by train was easy enough, we parked our car at Adge station and travelled to Montpellier but other cities we within reach. Although we didn't need to use a bus there was a bus stop with easy walking distance.
The owners were helpful and provided all the information that was required and were able to facilitate a midweek arrival.
La "Villa Agatéa" est située au bout d'une allée calme. Elle est agréable, fonctionnelle, sécurisée, et ombragée l'après midi ... La cour arborée et fleurie, n' a aucun vis a vis.
La résidence est elle aussi très agréable, fleurie et entretenue ou il fait bon se promener. Elle est entièrement sécurisée et offre une très belle piscine à profondeur progressive.
Mme Foster gère de main de maitre ses locations. Malgré la distance, elle est très disponible, réactive, parle très correctement le français et s'attèle à faire son possible pour que notre séjour soit agréable.
Nous avons passé un super week-end dans cette jolie maison (3 nuits)!!
Nous étions 2 adultes et 2 enfants (2 ans et 12 ans).
La location était identique à la description de l'annonce !!
Tout le nécessaire y était, il ne restait plus qu'à faire les courses et profiter du beau temps!! La terrasse est super : beaucoup d'intimité, pas de regards indiscrets!! En plus, la maison est très bien située : secteur calme, pas de passage. Cependant, la piscine était sale et il n'y avait pas d'eau dans le pataugeoire!! Mais bon, il est vrai que ce n'est pas encore la pleine saison!
Par contre, très belle plage de sable à seulement 15 minutes à pied de la maison! Et tous les petits commerces à l'entrée de la résidence!!
Avec Luna Park à côté, les enfants étaient ravis!!
A conseiller !!
