Stayed at Port Nature through Peng France who have a web site and were very helpful via emails in booking the accommodation with them. Stayed between the 10/05/2013 and 13/05/2013 in block 6 on the third floor, with sea view. The staff at Peng France speak good English and via emails and face to face was not an issue.
I booked the flights with Easyjet and a car which I collected at the airport. On arriving after going through arrivals the car hire office is just across the road. All the car hire companies are in the same place so you could book your car on arriving at Montpellier airport, which a lot of people were doing. The drive to Cap d'Agde takes about an hour and you have to pay at one toll, which cost 4.70 Euros.
On arriving at Cap d'Agde you need to stop at main entrance at the security office and collect your car pass, before driving the short drive to the Peng France office in the parade of shops near to the harbour area. The staff were very helpful and we choose to clean the apartment our self which items for the cleaning were provided in the pack. There was an allocated car park space, but the parking was very tight and another car was already parked in our space. We were not going to worry about the car park space so parked in the shop area and left the car there, which there was more room to park the car.
The accommodation block is accessed via a secured door using a door security tag on the keys. The tag is used to gain entry and use the lift. Use the tag to swipe when calling the lift and again when inside the lift use the tag to make the lift work. The apartment that we had booked was for two people with a sink with mirror, shower and toilet. In the main room was a very comfortable double bed. There was a mirror in the main room and a side table with two tall chairs. The storage area for clothes was very useful with a variety of shelved space. This was modern looking and on the wall was a TV. The glass doors open wide with two of the panels moving to the side to allow a big walk way onto the balcony. The balcony had a table and two chairs and hanging rail for tails. We found this room to be a good size, modern and clean. The toilet is small , but this is because all space has been used to fit in as much as possible. There was a hanging area between the toilet and shower, which was a good use of space. There was a broom, dustpan, bins and a very well stocked kitchen. The shower was good and great after a day on the beach to get the sand off or out your hair. We did not have any complaint about the room, much better than I had expected. There is a shutter which is electric and used at night to keep out any noise and light in the morning. We were near to a couple of the bars and were never disturbed by the noise.
On site are a number of bars and restaurants and shops catering for all. The pastry shop was a daily visit for breakfast with fresh croissants to start the day off. You are able to have your food sat outside in the sun if you like or take away. The staff were very friendly and there was a choice of breads, cakes, pastry's and drinks. Well worth a visit. The general store selling most items that you will need for your stay are sold there. We only took hand luggage so could not take shavers or large liquids. We bought all of our shavers, gels suntan lotions from the store, which was not much different in cost if we had bought it at home. There is a GOOD selection of wine and alcohol also sold. All staff were friendly.
There are a number of shops selling clothing, which was more geared towards the glamorous night life that takes place each evening. Sex toys and joke type items can be bought in some of the shops, but most are selling very sexy outfits for the night life / dressing up clients requiring these. We bought some which is a must to be seen when there.
We ate in three of the restaurants, calypso which is on the beach front and serves great food and the staff were very friendly and the price was well priced. Restaurant Oasis Tropical which is in the small parade of shops near to the beach, is small and friendly. The food at the Oasis is what made this small little restaurant very enjoyable. The place was full with French people and we could see why, the food was great. On first impressions the Oasis does not look much of anything, but so happy we went in and the price was also good. The Waiki Beach restaurant was much more expensive, but everyone seemed to go there and the reason why was the food and how nice the place looked. It seemed to be a hangout for the sexy people starting the night, before moving onto the clubs. Food and service get a 10/10, but you pay for this and well worth it. We drank a couple of times at Johnny Wokkers which is ran by a English speaking couple (so not to offend John comes from Scotland). Nice and friendly very basic pub with a nice atmosphere.
The beach was great and you have loads of room to get a place on the sand with a few beach front bars and restaurants, which like everywhere you are more than welcome naked, but bring a towel to sit on. The sea was calm and the tide does not go out much at all and on our stay the wind did blow a bit, but the weather was hot. There are couples engaging in sex on the beach at one end and this is something that individuals have to decide if they wish to sunbath in that area or more to another part of the beach. We did sunbath in this area and there were sexual acts taking place, but we were not bothered and watched some of this. If you go into the sand dunes you will expect men that walk around looking and masturbating, but do not go there if you don't want to be pestered.
We had a great time here and will be coming back again to enjoy the nakedness of it all. Port Nature in my view was the better looking part of the result and seemed to have a great vibrant feel about it.
