La Bagatelle (H61)
This beach front villa in Rochelongue, near Grau d'Agde has the most enviable position, with steps going down to a long white sandy beach. Few houses in Languedoc or even on the French Mediterranean coast can boast a position such as this. Exceptionally well situated, with sea views to take your breath away - on a clear day you can see the majestic Pyrenees (sometimes still snow-covered in May) and even Cap Creus in Spain, this house is a haven of well-designed tranquility.
The Villa was built in the 50's, and does have that slightly 'Corbusier' feel to it. It was completely re-designed and overhauled in 2007, and has contemporary interiors, as well as a huge wooden-decked terrace floating above the water line. An exposed modern wooden beamed structure with it's high ceilings enhances the already airy living room space.
It has 2 terraces, one of which is accessed via the living room and the other one is covered and has a contemporary outside 'dining-room'.
There is a large garden with some old vines, and the property is gated, so one can park 2 cars inside the property gates.
The 'house beach' rarely gets crowded even in July and August simply because there is no public parking near the house. In June and September it is almost private.
A ten minute walk along the beach will bring you to boulangeries, cafes and restaurants either in Grau d'Agde or Rochelongue.

Location Type: Waterfront
The villa is among a small collection of exclusive detached beach houses, that were built in the 1950's & 1960's and is a far cry from the major development of yacht marinas and holiday flats in Cap d'Agde itself, 2 km down the coast.
You can see the seaside town of Grau d'Agde from the house as the resort is on the far side of a small headland, where there are a range of shops and a weekly market. The stretch of beach by the property is quiet, because the nearest car park and access to the beach for the general public is 400m away.
700m walk to restaurants and there is one right on the beach.
