We regret that the property has not been designed for people with mobility problems, and the steps leading up to the front door plus those to access the Pool, or the narrow patio gate onto our Terrace sadly preclude safe wheelchair access.
Notes on accommodation
We regret that the relatively easy access from our patio directly onto the small beach-road makes it unsuitable for very young children so we cannot accept bookings for children under 6-8 years old, and there is no provision at the apartment for cots or highchairs etc. Equally, we cannot accommodate or accept any pets/animals and the apartment is a strictly non-smoking property. Lockable iron gates protect the loggia and all windows/patio doors also have electrically operated security shutters.There is a detailed 'house manual' (in English) at the property covering how all the equipment works so you can safely enjoy all the facilities ; this includes updated notes about the various Bars, Bistros, Shops etc and we always welcome additional comments about these from our visitors.
In the nearby towns of Grau d'Agde and Agde you will find an excellent selection of shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. There is a daily market in Grau d'Agde on the opposite side of the river which you can reach by the little ferry boat which goes back and forth every day in the summer until midnight.
Just a minute's walk away are a number of bars, restaurants and shops for your everyday needs including a bakers and supermarket.
The apartment is an ideal base for exploring the Languedoc-Rousillon region including the Parc National du Haut Languedoc for beautiful mountain gorges and hiking, the Corbières wine region with its Cathar castles or the many fine beaches in the area.
La Tamarissière is very much an under-developed seaside resort and even in high season during July and August, is mainly populated by French.
The 5 café/bistros which are just a few minutes walk away are moderately priced with moules & crites for 9.50 euros, steak and chips for 14 euros or various salads for around 7-9 euros.
There is a restaurant in Le Grau which we recommend called L'Ardoise, it's a super place for lunch or dinner and located in a street close to the Voilis Hotel.
There is another upmarket restaurant over on the other riverbank called Adagio's plus quite a number of other lively mid-market bistros so you get a pretty good choice. Make sure you book ahead for Adagios or The K'Lmar during the busy July/August season and make sure you are at your table by 8pm latest for faster service and tables with the best view.
During August the small river ferries operate up until midnight and they are just 80 yards walk away from the apartment so very convenient.
The ferries can be used to get you across the river to the small daily market in Grau d'Agde.
There are superb sandy beaches just a minute's walk away.
Sea-angling, river fishing, sailing.
Further afield are :
Béziers (30 minutes), historic town and capital of wine producing and rugby. Especially vibrant in August and during it’s famous Féria. Perhaps the best flower market in the whole of the south on Fridays in the beautiful tree-lined main boulevard.
Canal du Midi which links the Atlantic with the Mediterranean, miles of flat walks along the shady tow-paths. A choice of boat excursions can be taken.
Carcassonne castle is well worth a visit, especially on jousting days!
Golf courses nearby at Béziers and Cap d'Agde
Bassin de Thau - a calm inland sea teeming with fish. A breeding place for oysters and shellfish, producing over half the oysters consumed in France. Villages, such as Bouzigues and Meze, have many restaurants serving sumptuous platters of fresh shellfish.
Haut-Languedoc Regional Nature Park - gorges, Lac de Salagou.
Pézenas - City of Molière with an exceptional architectural heritage. Numerous arts and crafts artists with workshops open to the public. Large market every Saturday morning.
Spain - an hour's drive to the border.
Barcelona - approximately 3 hours' drive.
End of stay clean included, optional mid stay clean at additional cost

Previous Guest Comments:
"Just back from a lovely week in La Tama - two grey days, but great weather otherwise, and very relaxing. As seasoned renters of holiday apartments, villas and gites over the years we reckoned that this was one of the nicest properties we have ever stayed in! My husband is incredibly fussy, and even he could find virtually no fault!
- lovely aspect with the river and terrace, and great to have secure parking
- very well equipped, maintained and beautifully clean
- good shower with decent water pressure (a common irritation!)
- a very welcome 'Welcome Pack' with good quality products
- English TV - Freesat was great
- nice touches like providing hairdryer and towels
- plenty of nice quality cutlery
- lovely pool, great for swimming
Regarding eating out, we did venture to Chez Phillipe one evening, and thought it was excellent. Menu is now 28 euros, with wine from approx. 25 euros. Great French food, beautifully presented. The desert in particular was spectacular - neither of us normally bother, but this was superb (pyramid of red fruits with chocolate wafers and blackcurrant sorbet).
We also thought the brochettes at 'La Tama' were rather good at 13 euros -lot of french people eating there, which is always a good sign."
FERRYS - they usually continue running on until mid/late September but this can depend on the weather staying warm and sunny and if there are still a decent number of people around. By mid-September the ferrys start up later in the morning and finish earlier in the evening so you need to check with them on the day and agree a last boat time.
