For buying and selling property in Portiragnes

Portiragnes - "au fil de l'eau"

The French phrase "au fil de l'eau" translates as "at the water's edge", and is an apt expression to describe the old village of Portiragnes, in the Hérault department of Languedoc-Roussillon in the south of France. Portiragnes lies in a picturesque location beside the World Heritage Site of the Canal du Midi, and just a few minutes from the Blue Flag beaches of Portiragnes Plage.

An authentic French village

Portiragnes is a beautifully authentic old French village, typical of its region with pretty stone houses, a 12th century church, tree-lined streets and a friendly atmosphere. The village boasts a good complement of local amenities, with handy shops, restaurants and bars all within walking distance of the centre. Fêtes and festivals take place there too, adding local colour and fun to life in Portiragnes.

Enjoy the Canal du Midi

The lovely Canal du Midi is very much a feature of the village, not only adding a very pretty dimension but also being a perfect place to take a relaxing stroll, watching the holiday boats passing by or even hiring a boat yourself for a leisurely cruise to the sea.

Learn about the wine of the area

Portiragnes is surrounded by the vineyards that have made the fortunes of the Hérault for many years, and wine tasting (and drinking!) is a favoured pastime for many in this area. There are wine caves in the village and you can visit the wine producers' estates to enjoy guided tours and to discover how the different wines are created.

Portiragnes Plage - lively beach resort close by

Portiragnes is the old, inland village which is sometimes confused with the modern, purpose built resort of Portiragnes Plage, just a short distance away. This means that you can enjoy the best of both worlds, with the charming ambience of the original village yet easy access to the lively beach resort. The beaches of Portiragnes Plage are excellent, and have been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag for cleanliness. There are numerous activities available in Portiragnes Plage, with water sports and beach sports for all ages.

Explore ruined Cathar castles or try canyoning

A little further afield you can visit the historic cities of Béziers and Carcassonne, find the forbidding and mysterious ruins of Cathar castles and beautiful monasteries and trace the fascinating history of this region. The more active or daring can try the exciting sports of white water rafting or canyoning in the dramatic gorges of the Pyrénées, enjoy walking, mountain biking or horse-riding in glorious unspoilt countryside or enjoy the popular sport of golf on one of several good courses nearby.

How to get there

There are a number of airports within reach of Portiragnes, all with direct flights to and from the UK, most offering budget airline flights to keep travel costs low. Béziers is the closest by far, offering flights with Ryanair. Montpellier, Nîmes, Perpignan and Carcassonne are also within reach. The super efficient TGV runs to Béziers and Montpellier, so you can travel by train should you prefer. Taxis and hire cars are available from both stations. If driving, the A9 motorway will take you close to Portiragnes, which is found from the D612.

Property prices and availability in and around Portiragnes

Prices of properties close to the Mediterranean coast are usually higher than those found in more inland areas, as the desirability factor is high. Property in and around Portiragnes is subject to this influence, but is still reasonable in comparison with that found in other Mediterranean areas of southern France. It also has a very good rental potential should you wish to recoup some of the costs of purchase by renting the property to holidaymakers during part of the summer.
