Beautiful Detached Holiday Home/Pool In Marseillan. Open-Plan, Architect Design

Overview

Property

Updated: 16-Oct-2016
House in Marseillan, Nr. Agde, Herault, Languedoc-Roussillon, France - Quiet Cul De Sac, 5 Mins Walk To Town Centre And Port, 5 Mins Drive To Nearest Sandy Beach

'Maison Helene' is a detached house, situated in a quiet cul de sac, a stone's throw from Marseillan town centre and port. It has a stunning open plan layout downstairs, looking out of kitchen window to terrace and private pool, with a large folding glass door giving access to the patio area. Maison Helene has been completely remodelled internally by an architect, to advantage open plan living and to optimise the space between the inside and the terrace and the pool, making it the perfect place to enjoy hot days and warm evenings.

The house benefits from seating areas front and back, with a lovely fig tree and palmier in the back garden and spruce in the front patio area. Parking on property and opposite the house. Completely new kitchens and bathrooms fitted in 2013.

The lovely beaches of Cap d'Agde just 10 minutes away and many children's attractions: water parks and leisure activities available in the area.

Great House in the South of France

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the house in August 2016 and had a lovely time. It was very spacious inside, well designed and modern. It had a nice big kitchen/diner, big bedrooms, toys to entertain our children and a big TV with some kids DVD's for when it got too hot. The pool is lovely and the owners had left inflatable toys and balls that the children could use. There is an outdoor BBQ and a nice area to dine outside.

Marseillan doesn't have a beach in the town so the closest one is Marseillan Plage which is approx 5km away (you would need a car). Marseillan Plage is more of a resort where as Marseillan (where the house is) is more like a typical french town with a nice a harbour and good restaurants. There is also a large supermarket which is a 15 minute walk away that has everything you could ever need. There are some beautiful beaches in the area, we drove to Sete one day and had great fun at the beach. There are lots of facilities there including nice beach restaurants and things for the children to do. On the drive to Sete there is a very long beach which we also visited (might be 7 miles long?) that was beautiful and also had a few good beach restaurants.

BEAUTIFUL HOUSE SURPASSES OUR EXPECTATIONS.

  • 5 of 5

We could not have expected a house to fit our personal requirements quite so perfectly. It was everything that the previous occupants have said. Ten of us aged between 7 and 70 years of age loved the house, the pool, the availability of good restaurants virtually on our doorstep, shops including Carrefour, banks, doctors, markets, boulangeries/patisseries,the public transport and a reasonably level 5 to10 minute walk wherever we went. The only omission from Helen's extensive and accurate information was a very good family-friendly restaurant at the port - 'Entre Ciel et Mer'

My family would love me to book again for our next big celebratory holiday.

It's not a bad idea!

Thank you Helen for all you did for us.

Fantastic modern villa with pool in great location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was brilliant and met all our expectations and more. Located in a very peaceful cul de sac about two minutes walk from the town centre. It was clean, modern, spacious, light and airy. Everything was spotlessly clean. The decor was fresh with none of the heavy wood furniture favoured by some French rental properties. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you could possibly need on holiday. It had a lovely big American fridge to keep all the ice creams, and fresh crevettes and mussels in. There was another fridge in the utility room for chilling the wine and cold drinks. Having a washing machine and dishwasher made life easy, and the clothes dried outside on the line in an hour! The pool was fabulous, and great on days when it was too hot to go to the beach! Helen couldn't have been more helpful and provided us with lots of information on activities to do. There is a brilliant cycle path that runs from Marseillan to Sete along the side of the beach. It is about 10 miles each way and vey flat. The whole family cycled this every morning so we could justify eating all that delicious seafood in the evening! There are some very good restaurants in Marseillan Ville which is very unspoilt, and not touristy like Agde. We can thoroughly recommend Chateau du Port for a first class meal. The weather was fabulous for the whole two weeks, above 30 most days. If you are looking for a modern well equipped and maintained villa in a beautiful location then this is the one for you.

Amazing Villa!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is an absolute gem, with lots of different social seating areas, and all mod cons, a definate home from home. I was with a group of friends, but you easily have a few families here in this space. The villa is a short walk from the centre ville with local shops and bars. The Port been an amazing spot to sit have drinks and eat amazing fresh food.

Superb accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with friends in this wonderful villa. Spacious, spotlessly clean ,plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, amazingly equipped , contemporary but homely and conveniently located . 2 minutes to the local supermarket and a 5 minute walk away from the lovely port with its authentic markets , traditional shops and bars and plenty of places to eat. Although my children were not on this trip I wouldn't hesitate to rebook this villa with my entire family . Well done and thank you Helené -our break to your lovely home was perfect.

Wonderful and genuine Languedoc experience

  • 5 of 5

Two families for 2 weeks, total of nine people. We had a wonderful time in this very well equipped and maintained house. Really felt like we were living in a proper French village rather than the packaged tourist experience. Wine was plentiful and cheap, pool large and well heated. Also a great running/cycling path locally. Marseillan village is beautiful with many restaurants and only 5 minutes walk away. Helen was very helpful, particularly as our group included one special needs child. I would highly recommend.
