Mediterranean cottage on marina – This charming purpose-built fisherman’s cottage stands on the Port du Roy Marina at Aigues Mortes, a lively, historic walled town on the border between the Languedoc and Provence, affording spectacular views over the Camargue. Part of a new development within the Marina complex, La Maison Occitane boasts several traditional features, a fully equipped kitchen and furnishings in the local style. The views from the balcony are stunning and the terrace provides an ideal chill out spot for dining or enjoying a dive in the plunge pool whilst enjoying the yachts passing by along the canal.
The enviable location of this house means you can stroll into Aigues Mortes with its many shops and restaurants, and is ideal for touring the canal system with many organised boat trips or with an individual daily boat hire. For tennis, sailing and windsurfing you can go to one of the many sandy beaches nearby, which also offer miles of open, totally undeveloped walking space, enclosed by pristine forests and sand dunes. The canal paths provide excellent car free trekking and cycling routes.
You may decide to explore the amazing Camargue countryside to see its famous white horses, black bulls and pink flamingoes, or sample the delicious local food and superb variety of wines in one of the many beautiful villages and marinas scattered throughout this region. Neighbouring Languedoc, once called Occitane, offers some of the best sandy beaches in France, in particular those around Sete, just 50 minutes away. The amphitheatre and archaeological collections in Nimes will delight history-lovers, not to mention the history on your doorstep - Aigues Mortes was the departure point for the Crusades!

The Local View
This is really a very special place historically and full of interesting regional activities. La Maison Occitane is just a short walk from the amazing ancient walled city of Aigues Mortes, full of restaurants and bars to suit all tastes. Try Les Arcades near Place Saint Louis for local creative cuisine. Le Café de Bouzigues on rue Pasteur is very barocque and colourful and try Chez Papy Moise, if seafood and oysters are your thing.
