About Gillian Harris

We live in the gorgeous South of France. Loving the area with its wealth of history, architecture, and not forgetting the fabulous wine! The Languedoc is renowned for its wine growing and certainly lives up to this. We have seen on a daily basis the love, care and attention the vines receive, and rightly so! The most amazing area to visit with so much to see and experience.

Gillian Harris purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Gillian Harris chose Agde

The Mare Nostrum apartment is located in a quiet residence but very central for all there is to see and do in Cap d'Agde. Between the main marina and the sea, there is lots to offer here, from relaxed cafes and bars to lovely restaurants and small clothes and shoe shops. Just a few minutes walk to the beach, and not far from other beaches too. A very well maintained pool is on the residence, open May to September, only used by residents of Mare Nostrum. The apartment benefits from wifi, air conditioning and fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher and washing machine.

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is in a super location for so many reasons. So near the beach, so near great restaurants and shops. There are many typically "French" and very beautiful towns and villages a short distance from the apartment. Sete, Serignan, Marseillan, Bessan, Pezenas to name a few. Their traditional architecture is something to marvel. The larger towns and cities are well worth a visit, Carcassone, Montpellier, Beziers. There are a variety of activities available, Golf, Aqualand, all the water sports you could imagine, and of course lazing on one of several beaches! Lots to do for children, Mole beach a short walk from the apartment is a favourite. The Isle de Loisirs has an abundance of rides and kiddy treats, also animal parks and aquariums. Unlimited wifi, dishwasher and washing machine.

Clean comfortable accommodation in great location

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed at Mare Nostrum Apartments from 6-12 September 2017. We were met at Beziers airport by the owner Nigel and driven to the property after a quick tour of the locality. Nigel also dropped us back at the train station at Agde for our rail journey to Paris. He charged €50 in total for this service which we considered good value and saved us rhe hassle of finding the accommodation.

The apartment is located within easy walking distance of the Flanerie which is a pedestrian street full if clothes,food shops, supermarket, pharmacy and restaurants. At the end of the Flanerie was Mole Plage and more restaurants. Also within easy walking distance was the Marina with more great shopping and selection of restaurants.

Most restaurants offer a meal deal of 3 courses ranging from €14.95/€19.94/€23.95 . These represented excellent value as the meals were invariably very good. Quality wines could be picked up from €15 -€20. All in all excellent value.

We were keen to use the facilities of the Village Naturiste and there was a bus stop a 10 minute flat stroll from the apartment. There was a flat fare of €1 for each trip which was ridiculously cheap. Nigel gave us a pass to enter the Village Naturiste which saved us a considerable amount of money.

Our hosts Nigel and Gillian could not have been more helpful and the accommodation was exactly as described and fully met our needs.

I have no hesitation in recommending Mare Nostrum and your hosts Nigel and Gillian for a fun filled, carefree relaxing stay at Cap d'Agde.

Smal but clean and functional. OK for a couple

  • 3 of 5

A little on the small side but clean and functional. OK for a couple. The building has no sound insulation so you could hear ever noise from the surrounding flats. The local services. i.e deliveries, bin collecting and cleaning (which are obviously required) start to happen from 6.00am which is also very loud.

Owner's Response: After reading this short and negative review we are completely shocked at its content. It’s the worst review we have received in 11 years on any of our apartments. It bears no comparison to any of the previous reviews on this platform or even any of the other platforms we are on. Is it the same apartment! The guests arrived before the previous guests were due to vacate at 10am so we collected them from the airport and took them shopping to kill time. We brought in extra cleaners to turn the apartment around so they could check in 4 hours early. With no charge to the guests! The apartment has the benefit of double glazing to reduce any noise and retain heat. It is fully equipped – we even provide coffee for the machine, sugar, a bottle of cold water and a nice Rose is chilling in the fridge. There is a freezer block for the beach in the freezer. A full size dishwasher with tablets, rinse aid and salt is provided. Beach towels, beach mats, parasol and beach chairs are also provided. As we only cater for two, then the apartment is completely functional for couples – we don’t cater for families. Managing people’s expectations is always difficult, and based on this review and score they are obviously very high. The guest should have chosen a villa which would have matched their expectations, however, they would have paid double to triple the price. There were villas available when they booked last November and there still are villas available at £4-£5,000.

Tres Grand et Excellente Studio!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Beziers airport less than 48 hours after our daughter's wedding. Needless to say, we were looking for a relaxing and restorative trip for our 5 day holiday, having spent the past 3 months organising the wedding.

We are happy to say that is exactly what we got!

Nigel picked us up from the airport [and dropped us back] - he was friendly, helpful, informative and gave us a tour of both the apartment and the local flanerie a few seconds walk away, where there are 2 supermarkets, a boulangerie/patisserie plus many other shops and restaurants. [Just a note to remember: The supermarket's close between 1pm - 3pm, not sure if this is the same in high season also]. There is also a fresh fruit, vegetable and bread market every Friday and Sunday just at the entrance to Mole Beach which we used, as there wasn't an abundance of fruit and veg in the 2 supermarkets.

The apartment is equidistant to the harbour and the beach [both 3-5 minutes walk away] and would thoroughly recommend a round trip on Les Coches D'Eau [water car], to fully appreciate the marina and it's landmarks.

The apartment is the best stocked holiday let we have stayed in considering it's size. There was nothing we needed that wasn't easily found in one cupboard or another. We have stayed in large villa's with private pools which have been less well stocked.

All in all, it is an excellent base for those wanting a quiet, slow paced holiday without the need for a car. There was a bike hire place which we will make use of on our return to Cap D'agde to explore the area more fully. We rarely decide to make return trips to holiday destinations but this is now firmly top of our list!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased our guests enjoyed a quiet break after their hectic family celebration. They had very good weather and enjoyed many of the various activities in the area, enjoying both the marina and beach. Lovely guests, who are very welcome to make a return visit.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a perfect location for the port and also le mole and roquille beaches, the flanerie (which links the port and le mole beach) is 20 seconds from the apartment block and full of little shops. Although it is so close it is still a very quiet area. The apartment itself was perfect, every little thing we could think of was included and more! The communal swimming pool was never busy and was one of the nicest pools I've ever been to. Gil and Nigel couldn't have been more helpful, taking us from the airport straight to the door and showing us the amenities. Overall I would thoroughly recommend the apartment and the area for all types of people.

Absolutely brilliant

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant time! The weather was very kind - we managed 2 days on the beach in October! we loved the local shops, the marina and the location. The owners had a lovely travel cot which we hired for our 1 year old and we were very comfortable in the apartment. The apartment is spacious and modern. As we have a family the separate kitchen with all it's facilities was perfect. We would love to visit again and use the on site pool, that mixed with the beach only a couple of minutes away would make for the perfect family holiday. Everything you need within walking distance and good bus routes to visit places further afield. We used beziers airport, which they picked us up from and it's only a short journey to the apartment. Definitely recommend whether for a couple or small family. The main double bed can be closed off with sliding doors making it like a separate room. There is also a double sofa bed in the main room. The modern bathroom is lovely and they provided all the towels, including beach towels, and linen which was great.

A Grand Studio

  • 5 of 5

The property is very accurately exactly as it

says on the tin. This really is a Grand Studio....shut the bedroom

area off during the day and you still have a nice living space and

a completely separate kitchen. Nice hallway, bathroom and a small

balcony complete the scene. We were the first guests after a big

refurb.....complete with new air con, the whole place is furnished

and decorated to a very high standard. Beautiful grounds and

swimming pool to the rear of the property and the the Mole beach a

short stroll away as are the shops and restaurants in the

Flannery. A little further to the Marina area with all the shops

and restaurants that it has to offer. We had a great time,the

owners cannot do enough to ensure all is well......they enquired

after a couple of days if everything was ok, I suggested a bedside

light would be was fixed the next day !! We are a

retired couple so did not test out the additional beds that are

are available to make the Apartment sleep 5. All in all a very

nice stay for us, the Apt has a lift so no accessibility problems.

We will return for a another holiday. Michael and Chrissie

Owner's Response: We are so pleased this lovely couple enjoyed the apartment, grounds and local area. Its true!! Our Mare Nostrum apartment is so near the beach, also small shops and restaurants. The marina, which they enjoyed so much, is a short walk away and I know they spent some time browsing and strolling along the promenade. Some super shops and stopping points for coffee, wine, beer or a snack or meal. The residence is of a high quality with the most well kept gardens, pool and tennis court. The pool is so clean, safe and sunny! We hope to see these super guests back again for another holiday.
