The old village of Portiragnes is on the Canal du Midi, ideal for cool evening walks or a gentle cycle ride. The village has a 12th century church, post office, medical centre, a few shops, a local market, restaurants and bars and local wine producers. Tucked away in the heart of the village is your holiday home.
The house has 3 double bedrooms (one double bed and two twin beds) and has 2 bathrooms. From the balcony which leads from the main bedroom you can watch the boats on the Canal du Midi with a glimpse of the Pyrenees in the distance.
Languedoc- Roussillon is still one of the most unspoilt regions of France with a spectacular coast line. There is a wealth of wildlife and areas of natural beauty with an abundance of wild flowers. The Canal du Midi, which is only a short walk from the house, is just the start of the conservation area. Watching the flamingos in flight is a rare treat. For the energetic you can walk or cycle along the Canal or simply watch the boats negotiating the lock. Cycling in Spring and Autumn is a delight along the Canal du Midi and a recommended guide is the Cicerone Cycling Guide based on the Canal du Midi and written by a resident of Portiragnes.
The black mountain area was well named. Running east to west its sharp northern face is covered by dark oak, pine and spruce forests. The east wind, full of Mediterranean moisture, becomes the "vent d'autan", a fierce hot, dry wind. This is a great place for bird-watching.
There are many historic towns well worth visiting:
Carcasonne, Pezanas, Montpellier, Aigues-Mortes, Pont du Gard, Avignon, Narbonne, St Guilhem-le-Desert not forgetting the pretty villages in Haut Languedoc.
Beziers is L'Herault's 2nd largest town and only 10 mins away by car or local bus. Smart shops, a 12th century cathedral and many bars and restaurants. The Feria takes place during August.
Wine lovers will enjoy the degustations at the vineyards of St Chinian, Faugeres, Marseillan (Noilly Prat tour is excellent), Agde - the list is endless in this area of France.
Cap d'Agde is an elegant seaside resort with marina and sandy beaches. Plenty to do for children with a large water park "Aqualand" .
Pezenas is an old historic town with arts and crafts shops hiding amongst some stunning architechture. Try the local speciality of "Pate de Pezanas".
If you want to make an early morning start spend an interesting day in Barcelona or visit one of the many resorts along the Costa Brava.
Portiragnes is still a very traditional French village built around its 12th century church which is visible from the house. There are plenty of typical French village shops for your daily supplies and if you choose to eat out there is a selection of restaurants.
Bull running through the village takes place in July and August and for the Fete du Vin in October.
Portiragnes music festival is in June and the Feria in July. Bull running through the narrow streets of the village during the season.
Walk or cycle along the Canal du Midi or simply watch the boats negotiating the lock at Portiragnes village. There are also lovely walks around the nature reserves situated near the beaches. Flamingos, golden orioles, nightingales, serins & turtle doves name but a few of the birds seen on our walks near the fields alongside the Canal du Midi.
During the season, dancing, concerts, exhibitions etc are arranged both at the beach and in the village.
All the usual beach activities are available - volley-ball, horse riding, mini golf, water slide, sailing schools.
It is certainly worth taking an early morning stroll along the beach to see the sunrise and buy fresh fish from the night catch.
