We have just returned from a very happy week at Belle Villa.

It is a pretty villa set in a lovely garden with a good size swimming pool. There is plenty of outside space including both a covered and outside dining area. Inside, the villa is spacious, comfortable, very clean and well equipped. Shuttered windows and ceiling fans kept us cool even on some quite hot days & nights.

Portiragnes is a very quiet village/town and only a few minutes’ walk into the centre. The Spa supermarket was very handy for small food shops and there is also a tourist information and a small museum close by. A few more minutes’ walk takes you to the beautiful Canal du Midi where you can hire bikes.

The beach is 10 minutes in the car. Parking is free and right by the long golden sandy beach. Good day trips were to Narbonne and Beziers. All in all, we had a delightful and relaxing week in the villa and the area.

Although not an issue for us, it’s worth mentioning that the villa is on different levels internally and there are some open steps/drops leading from the living area and in the upper bedroom which anyone with mobility issues or with very young children should be aware of.
