“Cap D'agde in late September”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

It was our first visit to Cap, we flew to Montpelier and took the short train ride to Agde, there is a number 4 bus from the station, which takes you straight to the naturist village at a cost of just €1, (however these buses aren't at regular intervals, so you may have a little wait!!!)
The complex is very 1970's, one of the apartment blocks actually looks like a prison from the outside, while another one takes the appearance of a ship!! However once inside the room looks very modern.
On the beach, the average age was 60!! (being the very end of the season), even walking round the village it tended to be retirement age people.
If you are expecting a lively young populated holiday, we don't advise you go in September!! as the season doesn't trail off, it just ends first week in September!
The restaurant prices were above average, but then they have a captured market!! Johnny Wokkers is a Euro pub, where we found the prices to be reasonable, and the owners a husband and wife team were both extremely friendly and welcoming.
Whilst there we visited 2 clubs, Le Jules, which is rather small, but with good music to dance to, and 3 small play areas and a shower, the night we went there were many French Algerian males there, only a few couples. The other club was the sauna club 2et2, which is a great place to visit, very relaxing, modern and clean, they have a large jacuzzi, steam room, small sauna, several modern showers. The play area's consisted of a very large central bed, 2 small rooms, one private with a lockable door, the other with chains covering the entrance. They have a lovely relaxing bar area, with white leather seating and bar stools, Soft drinks are included in the entrance price.
Overall our time spent at Cap was made thoroughly enjoyable by the people we met, very friendly and sociable, if we visit Cap again we will go back in June when all the clubs are open.
Flights from London Luton to Beziere through Ryan Air is the quickest route if coming from the London area.

“An Eye Opener”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

We just returned from our short stay at Cap d'Agde village. We booked our accommodation in a suite in the Heliopolis compound through AGN. The building itself, just like the rest of the village, had a very tired 70's look. Otherwise, the village is kept very clean. This was exactly as described by other reviews we had read. As a result, we decided to pay a little more and get a room that had been renovated which turned out to be a good choice. The room looked exactly as described and illustrated in AGN's brochure and website. So you can imagine walking through the dated hallways of Helipolis, then opening the door to our suite was like walking through a time warp.
We found AGN to be very accommodating as they provide exceptional service when we reported our room safe would not open and the drain in our shower did not drain well.
We didn't try too many restaurants during our short stay at the village as we ate in most days. One restaurant we did eat at twice at was The Mississippi at Port Nature. We found their mussels in curry cream sauce and french fries among the best we have eaten anywhere.
This was our first time at the Cap but not our first time at a nudist resort. Even then, it was quite a liberating experience to eat, shop, and wander all day in the nude. You can be as bold as you want. In fact, we saw a couple wandering the shops while he had his hand on her breast and she fondling his package - all in plane view. Luckily we are not swingers as my partner thinks they are looking for hookup. So if you are offended by this kind of stuff, Cap isn't the place for you.
We really enjoyed the vast expansion of the beach and the sand. We parked ourselves just west of the "adult" area which was quieter and more sparely populated. We wondered a few times over to the adult area and saw groups of men surrounding couples in the act. We didn't visit any nightclubs but we did see many ladies in risque outfits when the sun went down. There certainly wasn't a shortage of shops selling outfits if you so desire. Although we are in our early 50's we found we most others were perhaps older than us, and some to us, looked a little out of place in their revealing outfits. Maybe this was due to the time of year we were visiting. The village is as relaxing or as exciting as you want it to be. If you're into nudism, this is a place you have to visit once in your life. Would we return? Certainly if not for the distance from North America.

The naturist village is like Jeckel+Hyde.By day it is a wonderful and relaxed naturist area with a fantastic beach addorned with every age and gender of naked sun worshiper.By night those telltale flyers inviting you to naughty clubs promising delivery of all fantasies becomes fact .Whether you are hetro,gay,homo,bi,or just voyeur curious.It has to be seen to be believed.Nothing is left to the imagination or sense of humour and this is in the bars even before entering the club of your desires.Enjoy if you dare!

“We Love Cap d'Agde”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

This was our second time to Cap d'Agde. For Americans who want to experience something completely European (and different than anything they will find in the US), Cap d'Agde is a great place to relax and feel free from the stress of the world.

“Better than we had hoped for”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

We had read a lot about the Naturist Village and still were not prepared for its seductiveness. It is larger than we had imagined. We stayed in Sete and took day and evening trips to thee village.
