About Sandra Foster
We are a couple from Northern Ireland and also spend a lot of time in France. We are the owners of this villa and personally maintain the villa to ensure that it is kept up to the highest standard. We equip the villa as we would like to see it equipped if we were renting it ourselves. We can assure that everything guests need and more is in the villa. We are happy to answer questions by phone calls or e mails. Cap d'Agde is very popular and unique place to spend your holidays. It has some much to offer to people of all ages.
Why Sandra Foster chose Agde
Renting a well equipped house with its own terrace, gate and a parking space is what I would definitely choose if I was going on holiday. The outdoor terrace is very important in Summer to enjoy dining al fresco. Renting a property gives more flexibility to your 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. Everything you need for self-catering is there! WIFI has been installed in this property and is included in the rental rates. We provide sheets and towels at no extra charge.
What makes this Villa unique
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.

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.

Small villa in gated community
The instructions for entry to the complex were misleading but the owner has taken on board our comments. We are four 70+ travellers and we found the bedrooms small. There was little room around the beds which made it awkward to get in and out. The shower over the bath was also difficult to use. However, we really enjoyed sitting in the courtyard and eating our meals out there.
Very private and centrally located
I loved the fully utilized kitchen and fully enclosed garden terrace. Lots of privacy. We did have to take a lot of steps with our bikes every day, up-down-up-down to get to the cottage or to the road. But it was doable.
It gets quit hot inside during the day as we were there in August , so we used the mobile airco unit a lot. I would have appreciated the same on the top floor but I’m probably spoiled.
You do have to know that in August the Cap is very busy with tourists, so there are busy roads in the neighborhood. But everything is within walking distance so you don’t really need your car!
I loved the property and the care that the owners give you, before-during and after your stay (by mail). Thnx Sandra for a lovely holiday!
A pleasant stay near the beach
We made our way here using public transport from Beziers airport. It is doable but involves a walk of approx ten minutes to the property up a slight hill. A car would obviously make this easier.
The property Is a good base for exploring the local area and the more well known places such as Carcassonne and Montpellier.
We were blessed with glorious weather during our stay and spent several days on the nearest beach, Plage Richelieu.
The shops, bars and restaurants of Cap d’Agde are now pretty much closed until next season but there were a few still open. There is a good HyperU not too far away which has a good restaurant.
The old town of Agde is worth a wander as is the walk up to the Ronde lock to watch the boats on the Canal.
Overall the property is quite basic and a little out of the way but it has a well equipped kitchen and the couches and bed were all very comfortable.
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in the South of France.
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.
Villa Agathea feels like home
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.
We as owners, pride ourselves in providing a friendly personal service to our guests. We like our villa to be a home from home. We are constantly checking maintaining the villa and making improvements as necessary. We listen to what our guests say and as a result we have installed WIFI in the villa. In addition we have just installed a large fridge/freezer.
I would agree that there is so much to do in the area. There is so much to see within minutes from the villa. For keen golfers there is the famous Cap d'Agde golf course (5 minutes walk) and Plage Richelieu (one of the many beautiful sandy beaches in the area) and only 10 minutes walk from the villa. Centre Port has an array of bars, restaurants and lovely little shops dotted around the port.
