The house is situated in a superb position about 200m from the Mediterranean sea, with the dramatic and colourful Esterel mountains behind. In five minutes on foot (or two minutes by car) you can reach the sandy beach and the shops and restaurants of the village of Agay. In summer months, there are opportunities for various watersports, and on Wednesday mornings year-round the local open air market is in full swing. St Raphael is about 20 minutes drive and has many restaurants and shops, covered market, marina and crazy golf, boat trips along the coast and to St Tropez. The ancient town of Frejus, with Roman ruins and its mediaeval cathedral, is a further 10 minutes beyond St Raphael.

Bed linen and towels are available. The house will be cleaned before your arrival, and we expect visitors to leave it in a similar clean state for the next visitors. Alternatively (or if you want a cleaner to come in the middle of ta two-week stay) a cleaner can be booked (in advance) for an extra 40 Euros.
Please note the house is not a commercial buy-to-let; it's our own holiday house, built in the 1970s, which we are delighted to let others use. We would therefore request guests to look after the equipment and furnishings as if they were their own. Since we do not have a maintenance person coming in between visitors, we ask you please to let us know of any damage or breakages as soon as possible, so that we can inform the next guests. No pets or smoking, please.
The house is at one end of a terraced group of four, within a hillside estate of 28 houses with lower and upper parking areas. We park in the lower parking area. The path from the carpark to the house includes a staircase of about 25 steps up. The footpath from the beach is about 150 m, most of which is up hill.
Private south-facing patio terrace (replaced in 2012) of about 40 sq m, with garden in front and to one side. Sun loungers and parasol available; chairs and a portable table can be brought outside from the salon (but please take inside at night or in rain).
150 metres (3 minutes) down the hill to wide sandy beach. Numerous water sport activities open in summer (eg kayaking, windsurfing, boat trips). Along the coast within 20 minutes in either direction are a great variety of other beaches, sandy and pebbly, popular or secluded, and some good snorkelling off the rocks. At any time of year you can walk along the sentier littoral as far as St Raphael.

Nice property, great views, good location.

This is a very nice house, tastefully decorated, with lovely views of the bay at Agay. The owners are keen to emphasise that this is their longstanding family home, which they are happy to share with their clients. From a holiday let perspective, though, I found the house had limitations. The kitchen is small, although reasonably equipped. The only toilet being downstairs is a nuisance, and could be difficult for the elderly and the very young at night. There is an esoteric selection of music and literature available, clearly reflecting the personal tastes of the owner. In this age, I did find the absence of wifi a frustration. That said, the house was very much as described, and the directions received from the owners were very clear and accurate and there was a lot of useful info within the house. The house was clean, well maintained, with a lovely terrace and pretty garden. Access to the property from the car park was up a flight of 37 steps, more than compensated by the great views of the bay.
Home from home with gorgeous views!

When we first arrived at this lovely property, one of my teenage sons said, "Wow, it feels like someone's home". He couldn't have put it better. This is obviously a well loved family home and we were very lucky to make it our home for a week. The location is fabulous. Only a few minutes from the gorgeous beach, local shops and restaurants. Long Camp beach, or "Tikki Plage" is only a couple of minutes away in the car and very quickly became a family favourite. Our teenage sons also enjoyed Waterworld at Le Dramont, a huge inflatable obstacle course. We did manage to leave the beaches for a day to go to Monaco, where we visited the palace, the aquarium and the marina, an unforgettable day out. Nearly every evening was spent on the terrace, playing cards and watching the sun go down, the sea views from there and the main bedroom are superb. We all loved our time in Agay and would not hesitate to go back again one day. PS If, like us, you enjoy reading, don't fill your suitcases with books (like we did), there are more than enough to read in this wonderful little house.

We had a great two week stay and wouldn't hesitate to return. Its a hidden gem of a place in what can be a hectic bustling Riviera! The accommodation is relaxed and suitable for families. The addition of a wall mounted shower would be great but it wouldn't put us off from staying here again. The view from the patio terrace and main bedroom is just stunning and a real delight to wake up to every morning. The beach is a mere 5 minutes walk down the hill and there are some lovely restaurants and shops along the front. We loved the fact Agay was so relaxed, family friendly and generally quiet. Its a fantastic base to explore all along the coast and we had great day trips to Cannes, St Tropez and the Rothschilds villa in Saint jean cap ferrat. Michael and Sue (the owners) were very helpful and attentive and I would certainly recommend staying here.
Great location, lovely property

Our family enjoyed a lovely week at the house. The views and location were wonderful. Nice and quiet location, but with easy access to the coast and all it offers. We will definitely return for another visit.

We really enjoyed a week in Agay. The house is simply furnished but very practical with 2 decent sized bedrooms.It is ideally located with a fantastic view of the sea from the house and sunny terrace and only a short walk (max 5 mins) to the beach and the shops / restaurants etc just a little further on. We hardly used our car as everything was so close. The sea was very warm - great for swimming and snorkeling.
Lovely sunny holiday
By Marie A on 01-Aug-2015
This was our 2nd stay at the house in Agay and we loved it as much as the 1st time! The house itself has everything a family needs for a relaxed holiday, beach equipment, bbq, various games, a good kitchen, comfy accommodation etc. There is a super view of the bay from the terrace and we found the area to be family friendly with a mix of nationalities (mostly French & Italian) The village and beach are reached with a 15 min walk down the hill and has all the amenities needed - supermarket, café, restaurant, lovely ice cream, bank, beach shops & tourist info. The beach itself is clean and great for snorkelling, especially if you walk around the bay a little. There are lifeguards on duty and it has a safe family feel. There is a market on Thurs am & Sat/Sun eve during the summer and there is a good bus route to St Raphael and a small rail station where you can travel to St Tropez, Cannes, Nice etc. All in all - we had a great time (again) and I`m sure we will return in a year or 2!
