A great adventure !
We had an incredible stay in Agde. The house was as described in the VRBO advertisement. Our hosts did an excellent job in responding to our requests. They helped me arrange to rent a bicycle for 5 weeks, which was necessary transport to get to my culinary classes.
I could walk to everything that I needed, from the grocery stores to the barber shop. 3 bakeries are within a block of the house. The Thursday market is literally down the lane from the house.
I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for accommodations in Agde. The train service was very convenient for travel to Spain and southern France.
Historic house in quiet location
We had a great stay in the historic centre of town. Easy access to buses and trains and we made several trips. Very convenient having a shop nearby as we mostly self catered.
Not so convenient that the bathroom is not on the same floor as the bedrooms, but perhaps not possible in the modernisation.
A must for lovers of old world charm. Cool down in the fabulous private courtyard or sunbathe on the roof terrace with its superb vista of the Old Town, and in the evening dine on one of the pontoon restaurants on the river. Visit the historic cities of Narbonne, Montpellier, Nimes or Arles on the fast, punctual and cheap trains, only 10 mins from the house, or drive to the coast at Cap d'Agde.
The booking process was simple and Nira and Allan were very helpful and made us feel very welcome. A holiday here is highly recommended.
Fantastic accomodation and wonderful holiday
The accomodation was first rate and just as described in the advertisement. It was amazing being in the centre of so much history. Service provided by Nira was excellent and all who stayed there appreciated her help.
Would definitely recommend this property to anyone.
Excellent restaurants within walking distance, with huge variety.
Traumhaft schönes Haus
Wir hatten einen wunderschönen Urlaub. Das Haus ist traumhaft gelegen in der Altstadt von Agde. Parkmöglichkeiten sind zwar nicht direkt am Haus, aber sehr nahe dran. Im Innenhof kann man morgens super frühstücken und das Haus ist so groß, dass die Kinder sich gut darin verstecken konnten. Außerden kann man von dort aus viele Ausflüge unternehmen und der Strand ist auch nicht weit entfernt und gut anfahrbar. Wir würden immer wieder dort unseren Urlaub verbringen!
We stayed at Maison d'Estella in summer 2011 and had a fantastic time. It is a truly unique property, full of wonder and charm. A beautiful and well-equipped house and we definitely intend to come back at some point in the near future.
We received excellent service from the owners, and Agde is a very atmospheric city. Overall I cannot fault a thing.
Thanks for your visit, glad you enjoyed
