Perfection in the Sun on the Med

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived and seeing the Garden Apartment and meeting the owners, Derek and Lisa, we knew we were in for a grand holiday. The apartment and grounds, including the lovely large swimming pool were first class. Very high standard and well maintained. Everything worked - which is a change! And you could tell, speaking with Derek, that keeping the property and grounds to a high standard was important to him. The apartment and surrounding area was quiet and within an easy flat walk along side the Etang waters too the lovely port village of Marseillan. We spent two weeks at this excellent Garden Apartment and already plan to return.

Our son and his wife and two small children rented - at the same time as us - Derek's other villa which was just opposite our Garden Apartment. This villa was also excellent and has its own swimming pool. Both properties were gated and well secure. For our son and his family, this was important to keep the children within the grounds of the villa.

It is hard to think of any minus points to include in this review, and we cannot imagine anyone not enjoying this rented property and of course the port village of Marseillan. This was our second visit to Marseillan and it certainly will not be the last.

Wonderfu! What's not to like?!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We found the apartment to be clean, well decorated and equipped and attractively furnished. The outside area has trees for shade if required, two tables and chairs give a choice of whether to sit in the sun or shade. There is a sturdy built in barbecue. The pool, which was checked and treated every morning, was a real bonus. Walls and hedges shelter it from the wind.

Derek and Lisa were welcoming and helpful; their local knowledge very useful

The location is ideal, just a short distance from the lagoon and an easy and attractive walk along it’s edge to Marseillan. Marseillan Plage is about 4km away.

Marseillan stole our hearts. To sit in one of the lovely restaurants on the port is a joy. The town is clean, well maintained and free from the usual tourist/beach shops, with the exception of one small gift shop. The majority of buildings in the centre are traditional. There are several squares with trees giving shade if you just want to sit and watch the world go by. When we visited in September it was just busy enough to give atmosphere without being too busy. Perhaps it’s the Mediterranean and living in such a lovely place, which makes ‘the locals’ so friendly.

We took bikes with us and used them almost every day. There are dedicated cycle tracks at the side of the lagoon. To cycle along in the sunshine overlooking the Lagoon and the boats on the Canal is not to be missed.You can also ride along side of the Canal Du Midi. The track here is just soil and quite narrow in places, but well worth riding to Bagnas, a UNESCO World Heritage Site for wild life. There is also a lock on the canal here. The plage is about 4km away, an easy bike ride on mostly dedicated cycle tracks.

Boats, kayaks, paddle boards, fishing rods, bikes and motor boats can be hired on the port by the lagoon.There is also a kite surfing school. Boat trips to the Oyster beds are available.

We would not hesitate to recommend both the accommodation and Marseillan.

Fantastic holiday at The Garden Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The flat is even better than the description, and we have spent several happy holidays there.The flat is really comfortable, and the private pool a fantastic luxury. Derek and Lisa are both very helpful, and Marseillan close by with all the restaurants and culture you might want. Something for everyone, and we hope to return in the future.

Lovely apartment in good location

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in many self catering places in France and in our view this was one of the best - bright and well equipped, plenty of outside space and great location. It was very hot for the whole week we were there, so we spent a lot of time in leisurely lunches on the spacious shady terrace, cooling off every now and again in the pool. The sunloungers were extremely comfortable. In the evenings we strolled into Marseillan, a pleasant 10 minutes away along the lagoon. We were surprised how nice it was - a bustling little harbour with a good choice of restaurants and shops but without the crowded feel of the big seaside resorts. There was plenty to see in the area - Sete, Cap d'Agde, the Canal du Midi, a trip into the vineyards, and a real highlight was the VIP evening tour of the Noilly Prat works in Marseillan hosted by Lisa. We've brought back a bottle - together with happy memories of our week in Marseillan.

Great base

  • 4 of 5

This little ground floor apartment was very comfortable for two. The King size bed was really great and just what you needed after a hard day at the beach. However, although the bed suited my 6' 4" frame the shower was a bit snug!!! The apartment was clean, tidy and well stocked. Our hosts Derek and Lisa was lovely and provided us with a complimentary ticket to the Noilly Prat distillery which was well worth the visit. Derek was very knowledgeable about the locality and where we could hire bikes which was the perfect way to get around. The apartment was 10 minutes walk from the town where there were some fantastic restaurants and a beautiful marina. All in all a lovely break and we would not hesitate to recommend the garden apartment to others (as long as they don't book when we want to go!)

Owner's Response: Hello Mark & Tracy Many thanks for your humorous review of the Garden Apartment and Pool ! We trust the large Pool, patios, gardens and other generous facilities more than amply accommodated your very large frame ! We look forward to seeing you here again as planned next year !

Happy Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

We chose Beau Jardin as we wanted a small Gite for 2 with a pool, which was crucial for us. The apartment was very comfortable. We've been to so many where the chairs and bed and cheap but Derek and Lisa have kitted it out as though they were living in it. The patio area offered much needed shade and pool is fabulous and secluded. The local area and towns were full of character and, as well as our mission to 'generally chill out and get as much sun as possible' we mooched around Agde, Marseillan and Sete and loved it. Each restaurant we went to served great food but if we were to pick one then Chez Philippe offered best value with stunning tasty food. We didn't use the beaches until meandering back along the coast road to Montpelier on our way home and found some great ones to laze around on. Our week was truly a great holiday and honeymoon and Beau Jardin proved a perfect place to stay. We felt relaxed from day one. Thank you Derek and Lisa for a great holiday.

From the Owner

We first came on holiday to Marseillan in 1995 and fell in love with it’s timeless French charm and the beauty of the surrounding countryside and beaches etc. Marseillan Ville is a picturesque, unspoilt old harbourside village located on the Etang de Thau (a sea water lagoon off the Mediterranean) which is famous for oysters and seafood. It is often likened to St. Tropez 50 years ago ! The Canal du Midi starts at Marseillan, which was originally built in the 17th century to serve the transport of the local abundance of wines via the Canal up to the Bordeaux Atlantic Regions of France. You may have seen Marseillan featured on Chef Rick Stein's recent TV series where he travelled down the 'Canal' sampling the local culinary delights here!
