About this listing
We invite you to come and stay in our comfortable winter residence and place in the sun. Ideal location for exploring the interesting Languedoc-Rousillon region and equally suitable for a family beach holiday in the summer season. Wifi. Aircondition.
Very comfortable and cozy holiday cottage on private holiday estate just 100 m from the large, sandy Blue Flag beach of Gruissan Les Ayguades - halfway between Gruissan village and Narbonne Plage.
One bedroom with double bed (160 cm) and one bedroom with single bed (80cm) on the ground floor plus a double sofabed (140 cm) on the mezzanine level. Very well equipped kitchen, shower room and separate toilet, secluded garden, terrace, and sunny courtyard. The reversible aircondition unit (heat pump), panel heaters and the floor heating in the winter garden make the cottage suitable for all year occupation.
Guests have access to a fully equipped 60 square meters/645 square feet holiday cottage on a small, gated and private holiday estate called Les Mers du Sud. Private parking on the grounds. Storage room with extra fridge, freezer and clothes drier. Two bicycles and some beach equipment.
Interaction with Guests
I do holiday rentals rather than hosting and interacting with guests is through an excellent and multilingual caretaker.
Unique and sought after location in conservation area just 100 m from the large, sandy and child friendly beach. Dead end street with no through traffic. Perfect for a family holiday in high season, the rest of the year ideal for those seeking peace and quiet, for nature lovers, for walkers/hikers, birdwatchers, windsurfers. Many marked hiking trails and plenty of biking paths.
The nearby and lovely medieval circular village of Gruissan is a delight and offers all services, restaurants and a lively market three times a week. Gruissan is one of the few places on the Languedoc coast that is lively all year and can be recommended also out of season.
Narbonne is our nearest town with history back to Roman times and has a superb covered market open every morning.
Small grocer/wine shop/restaurant/bread outlet/take away at walking distance from April till October.
A car is recommended. Very good train connections in every direction from Narbonne.
Easily accessible from airports like Béziers, Carcassonne, Perpignan, Montpellier, Toulouse. Direct high speed trains to Narbonne from Paris Gare de Lyon and from CDG airport. Convenient for a combination with cities like Paris, Bordeaux, Montpellier, Barcelona. Only one hour from the Spanish border and interesting day trips to north Costa Brava are very much possible.

Semi-retired, living in the south of France in winter and north Norway in summer. The best of both worlds ! :)
I love to travel and I am a big fan of home exchange and have made more than 30 successful exchanges so far.
I like the great outdoors, gardening, walking/hiking, cycling, something I now can do year round when spending the winters in France.
I am also fortunate to have a second home in Norway that I can share with other travellers.
