Our unique stilt chalets are located directly at the beach on an ever-growing alluvial sand space near Gruissan on the Mediterranean Sea. Built on stilts to bear up against constant flooding, the 19th century chalets used to serve as fisherman’s houses until their destruction during WWII. Rebuilt according to their original design, the chalets now make for exceptional and truly ecological holiday homes. Arranged diagonally along the coast line, all chalets offer an unobstructed ocean view. Interiors ranging from simple to sophisticated allow you to choose a vacation home according to your comfort needs.

Gruissan & its surroundings

Gruissan is a seaport located directly at the Mediterranean Sea, in France’s Languedoc-Roussillon region, in the Aude department, approx. 10 minutes from Narbonne and 2 hours from the Spanish border. The town has a population of 2,000 and is made up of several districts: Le Village (historical centre), Le Port (port district), Les Ayguades (natural beach area), and Gruissan-Plage (Gruissan Beach), where the beach chalets are located.

Gruissan is blessed with a well-preserved native environment. An extensive bike path system allows you to explore its beautiful landscape without relying on a car. Be sure to visit Gruissan’s historical town centre which has been voted among “France’s most beautiful villages”. A traditional fishing and wine village, Gruissan is famous for its farmer’s market. Held three times per week, the market offers a huge variety of local specialties such as fish and seafood fresh off the boat, Mediterranean vegetables, olives, cheese, bread, meat and sausages – a great place to shop for fresh produce or simply chat with the locals! Wine lovers may follow the “Corbières” wine route to visit organic winemakers in the region and taste their extraordinary wines. A visit to Narbonne will allow you to discover the city’s rich cultural heritage, including the Roman horreum and the Archbishop’s Palace.

Gruissan Plage is a perfect place to spend your family summer holidays, allowing your kids to bathe, swim or snorkel in the clear, shallow water, build sand castles, or go fishing. Teenagers will find a variety of water activities at the Etang de Mateille, while the lagoons are a great location to relax and observe flamingos. You may also enjoy exploring the oyster park and the saline eco-museum, located right at the end of Gruissan Plage. We recommend visiting Gruissan during the off-season, thus enjoying the sea and the surroundings in peace and quiet.

How to get there

We recommend a low-carbon train ride by TGV (high-speed train) to Narbonne via Paris or Lyon and Montpellier. From there, you can take the bus or a taxi to Gruissan-Plage.

The closest airport is Béziers (domestic flights only), or Carcassonne.

If you're travelling by plane, please consider offsetting your carbon emissions, for example through the atmosfair programme.

Reviews for Gruissan Beach Chalets

Das gemietete Haus in Gruissan vom 10.-17.09.16 entsprach unseren Erwartungen, denn wir waren schon einmal dort und konnten die Pfahbauten somit einschätzen. Die Lage dieses Hauses war super, in der ersten Reihe am Strand. Das Bad leider nicht in bestem Zustand, die Dusche konnte man nicht schließen und wir improvisierten. Zur Schlüsselübergabe beim Makler mussten wir leider sehr lange warten, auch nach Anruf dauerte es eine ziemliche Weile, bis jemand vor Ort war (wähernd der Öffnungszeiten). Man zeigte uns nicht das Haus, wir erhielten nur eine Skizze. Die Rückübergabe am Abreisetag war dagegen sehr gut, pünktlich zum vereinbarten Termin und freundlich. Wir würden wieder dorthin reisen.
