Rental Home
A beautiful and historic stone house that has been lovingly renovated while retaining its authentic French style. It stands in the very best spot on the main square (along with the café/boulangerie/épicerie) in the picturesque Mediterranean fishing village of Bages, situated between vineyards, salt-water lagoons and sea. The house overlooks the village square and rooftops with views from every bedroom and from the roof terrace to the sparkling water of the Étang de Bages (lagoon) and the Mediterranean beyond. We fell in love with the French style and character of this house the very first time we saw it as well as the friendliness of the village and we are sure you will too; it is the perfect place to relax, switch off and enjoy a taste of the very best of France and French village life bu...A beautiful and historic stone house that has been lovingly renovated while retaining its authentic French style. It stands in the very best spot on the main square (along with the café/boulangerie/épicerie) in the picturesque Mediterranean fishing village of Bages, situated between vineyards, salt-water lagoons and sea. The house overlooks the village square and rooftops with views from every bedroom and from the roof terrace to the sparkling water of the Étang de Bages (lagoon) and the Mediterranean beyond. We fell in love with the French style and character of this house the very first time we saw it as well as the friendliness of the village and we are sure you will too; it is the perfect place to relax, switch off and enjoy a taste of the very best of France and French village life but also close to Narbonne, Perpignan, Collioure, Spain and Barcelona and a large choice of beaches plus every activity on land or on water. The house is tucked away in the prettiest part of the village, peaceful and calm but with everything you need on the doorstep; watch the sun rise over the water from the terrace, then pop across the square for your morning baguette and stop by the café to enjoy a petit crème with your croissant. There is every activity close by; fantastic walking, beautiful cycle trails, sailing, windsurfing, kite surfing, kayaking, rowing, fishing, bird watching (the region is famous for its bird life and flamingos), tennis, wine tasting, beaches, historic chateaux and cities – or just sit and enjoy the views and soak up the atmosphere of this friendly and authentic fishing village in the perfect climate of this part of the south of France. This is our second home with all the usual home comforts and we hope that we have thought of everything so that you can really relax. Downstairs, steps lead up to the front door and you come into a cosy sitting room with comfortable sofa, plenty of books and games and TV/DVD/Wifi/ipod dock. From here it is a step up into the large open-plan kitchen and dining room filled with light from the huge windows overlooking the village square. There is a large dining table seating 8 easily and the modern kitchen is very well equipped with a large American style double fridge/freezer, an induction hob, dishwasher, coffee maker, plenty of pots and pans and crockery and cutlery for at least 8 people. There is a separate back entrance into the kitchen from the little lane behind which is perfect for unloading the shopping and there is a small table and a couple of chairs here for another choice of sitting area. There is also an open fireplace in the kitchen, lots of storage and a separate wc. Upstairs, on the first floor, is the master bedroom with double height windows that open to the south with views over the square and the lagoon behind. The room has a large king size bed which can be made into two single beds as required. This room manages to be cool in summer and cosy in winter. There is a large closet area with its own sink. There is a second double bedroom with two sets of windows facing east over the square and views of the lagoon plus a large wardrobe/storage area. Across the hall is a very large, family bathroom with sink, bath and Italian shower plus there is a utility area with washing machine. Upstairs again, on the top floor, is a further double bedroom with king size bed (can be made into two singles) facing south with beautiful views of the village, the lagoon and the surrounding landscape. Next door is a shower room with wc and sink. Also on this floor is our favourite room; the sunny top sitting room with sliding French doors onto the terrace and spectacular views of the lagoons and the sea beyond. It is the perfect place to enjoy an early morning cup of tea, watching the sun rise over the water or a relaxed breakfast as the village wakes up below. Perfect too for an evening aperitif or just a heavenly place to sit and admire the ever-changing, panoramic view of the fishermen at work on the water, the sailing boats, the windsurfers the famous flamingos and birdlife of the region and French village life. Out of the end window, you may even spot snow-covered Canigou in the far distance. Bages is that very rare thing, an unspoiled, authentic and picturesque Mediterranean fishing village in the Languedoc-Roussillon, situated between vineyards, lagoons and sea but utterly untouched by mass tourism. It has managed to retain its traditional feel and way of life despite being just 15 minutes from Narbonne and on one of the most beautiful stretches of the Languedoc coast and also one of the prettiest villages in the region, situated in the beautiful wine-growing area of Corbières, overlooking a vast lagoon, part of the Narbonnaise en Méditerranée natural park and home to flocks of pink flamingos and an extraordinary assortment of birds (350). An idyllic location in a wild, picturesque and lightly populated pocket of the otherwise crowded Mediterranean. More

This is one of the best rentals we've found in ages. The house is very comfortable, warm, clean and well-lit. The kitchen has all modern appliances and is quite spacious. There is a terrific balcony with great views. Bages is ideally located, surrounded by the lagoon and all it's birdlife, with restaurants and cafés literally on the doorstep. Great for cycling, wind surfing, sailing, walking... and Narbonne is just a hop and a skip up the road. We'd go back in a heartbeat.

Ein sehr schönes Ferienhaus in einem angenehm beschaulichen Ort. Perfekt um auszuspannen. Das Haus ist sehr groß, sehr gut und individuell eingerichtet und die Heizung funktioniert super. Was gerade im Winter wichtig für das Wohlbefinden ist. Von den oberen Stockwerken und der Dachterrasse hat man einen tollen Blick auf den Etang und zu den Pyrenäen. Und bei Sonnenschein und Windstille kann man auch im Winter ein spätes Frühstück auf der Dachterrasse einnehmen. Wir haben uns in den zwei Wochen sehr wohl gefühlt und werden sicher wiederkommen. Die Eigentümerin und auch ihre Hausmeisterin vor Ort waren sehr hilfsbereit. Merci beaucoup!

Nadia and Mark's house exceeded expectations, so often are holiday houses better in the details than reality but this was perfect. Super house, lovely style, lots of character, and space. Wonderful views. Bages and surrounding area a real revelation, as was Narbonne. I thoroughly recommend it.

We were pleasantly surprised on arrival at this super pretty house in the little square of Bages, overlooking the cafe des Beaux Arts and the fountain. An abundance of Bourganvillia, cafe tables and chairs, and pretty coloured shutters.....classically French. The house is much larger than imagined, set over 3 floors with a huge open plan living area and very well equipped kitchen. The roof top terrace offers sunrise views over the etang - a perfect spot morning coffee and in fact captured the sun all day. We spent a fabulous day out in Collioure (1hr 15mins) and also took a day trip to Spain visiting Cadaques and the incredible Cap de Creus (2 hrs 15 mins) . The beautiful city of Narbonne is 10 mins away with train links to nearby Bezier for the airport.

A beautiful, spacious and stylish home in a perfect location. The house itself was very comfortable, clean and extremely well equipped. The little terrace area was a bonus - we were able to enjoy a glass in the evening before dinner whilst taking in the beautiful views down to the village square, with a couple of lovely restaurants and across to the lagoon beyond. This is a great base from which to explore the region with it’s gorgeous towns and fabulous beaches. The owners were extremely helpful with plenty of information and recommendations. Highly recommend.

This is a lovely spacious house which has been beautifully renovated and furnished and has everything you need for a great holiday. The views from the top floor terrace and sitting room are spectacular and from downstairs you can watch village life in the square! The large kitchen/diner is very well equipped so cooking at home is easy but we were tempted by the lovely restaurant/cafe, Les Jardins de Bages across the square and often ate there sitting out under the trees. It also has a small shop where you can buy croissant and bread plus basic provisions. Nadia provided lots of useful information about the surrounding area plus some really good directions for finding Bages and when you get to Bages it's easy, just follow the signs to the Mairie which is in the square. All very helpful after a less than perfect Ryanair flight which meant we arrived after dark! We would definitely recommend this stylish comfortable house and we hope to return next year.

Thank you very much for your lovely review, we are so pleased that you loved the house and Bages as much as we do and it would be a real pleasure to welcome you back next year. British Airways fly three times a day from Heathrow to Toulouse airport which is only just over an hour away from Bages if you want to avoid Ryanair next time! Thank you again and a bientôt

We love this part of France and the Mediterranean coast and usually we stay in Collioure but it has become more and more crowded, full of tourists and difficult to park or drive in and out so we decided to try a different village a little further up the coast and we are so glad that we found this beautiful house right in the centre of the charming village of Bages. We loved having breakfast in the café on the square every morning and then walking down to the lagoon. There are vineyards and chateaux all around so we did lots of wine tasting and we also visited Narbonne and Carcassonne and further afield. The restaurant in the square serves wonderful food and, unlike in Collioure, here we didn’t feel that we were paying overpriced tourist rates. The house is in the prime spot in the village and the views over the lagoon are just stunning. We can’t wait to come back.

We had a wonderful time in Bages in this beautiful apartment. The place oozes historic charm and the tastefully decorated rooms with well equipped kitchen really set it apart from the standard type of rental you normally find in France. It's also set in a great position for the beach in Narbonne and some of the stunning coastal villages like Collioure only 30mins drive away. We will definitely return again one day!
