Valras Plage - a beautiful destination to book a holiday villa in the south of France!

This bright, airy villa, built in 2005, is situated in an established, beautifully landscaped private residence of just 32 properties which overlook an attractive private swimming pool with sun terrace and tropical plants.

It is situated about a 7 minute walk from the Valras Plage beach, close enough to access all the amenities of the resort easily but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet.

The resort of Valras Plage is a classic French Mediterranean resort situated about 15 miles south west of Cap d’Agde. It enjoys some of the best weather in France with plenty of clear, dry days. During July and August, temperatures along the coast average around 28°C (82°F).

The beach offers 4 kms of fine, clean sand with patrolled bathing areas during the season as well as beach activities such as volleyball, swings and zip-wire to entertain children.

At the mouth of the river Orb you will find Valras Plage harbour, a safe haven for small leisure and commercial craft.

Around the harbour and along the promenade in Valras are many fine bars and restaurants. These offer a full range from morning coffee, lunch of gallettes or crepes, ice creams, moules frites or just about anything else you might fancy for lunch or evening meal.

Some also have live music during the evening. While in the harbour area why not sample one of the 70+ flavours of ice-cream from the parlour there.

Situated at the other end of the beach about 8 minutes’ walk from the villa is the casino which, as well as one arm bandits offers poker, roulette and black-jack. On Saturday evenings during the season, and less regularly out of season, it hosts regular cabaret spectaculars which are accompanied by diner.

In town you will find an excellent selection of shops, restaurants, cafes, banks, a post-office and a well staffed tourist office which can give advice on local attractions and activities.

There is also a fish market which sells the days fresh catch in the late afternoons and an open air market on Monday and Friday mornings at the Theatre de Mer near the harbour in the summer or town centre off-season, offering local food produce (vegetables, sausage, cheese etc.) as well as the local brightly coloured Mediterranean ceramics.

As well as the local shops in the town Valras Plage, the area is serviced by a large Hyper-U at Sérignan, just 2 minutes drive out of the town towards Béziers.

Various seasonal excursions are available from the harbour either for fishing or sight seeing. Sailing is available from the beach and there is a go-karting track just outside the village. Horse riding is available at nearby Portiragnes Plage and crazy golf at Vias Plage.

Situated about 10 minutes drive from the A9 peage, Valras-Plage is an ideal base for exploring the Languedoc-Rousillon region including the Parc National du Haut Languedoc for beautiful mountain gorges and hiking, the Corbières wine region with its Cathar castles or the many fine beaches in the area.

Budget airlines fly regularly to Carcassonne, Perpignan, Montpellier, all within 50 miles with Nimes and Toulouse also easily accessible. Béziers/Vias airport,20 minutes from the villa, is now open with Ryanair fying regularly from Stansted and Bristol, and from Luton during the winter.
