Overview

About the property

2 bedroomed apartment and plunge pool opening on a garden

A comfortable and welcoming ground-floor apartment in an original wine-producer’s town-house. The accommodation opens directly on to a sunny terrace, a plunge pool and a typical Mediterranean walled garden. It is the perfect spot for relaxing with a coffee or a glass of wine before or after some adventures in the town, on the beach or beyond.

The apartment sleeps four people in two bedrooms and is equipped with all you will need for your stay … whether for a weekend or for longer.

The house is located in a quiet part of the old-town centre and is an authentic ‘vigneronne’ … a property typical of the region with its long history of wine production.

We are a short walk to the old port (4–5 minutes) where you can while away some hours at your leisure having breakfast, lunch or dinner ... or just a coffee (or something stronger) ... on the terrace of one of a selection of diverse restaurants and bars. It is a true pleasure to sit and take your time to watch the yachts and canal-barges languishing in and out of the harbour and to simply enjoy the hum of contented people strolling past your table on a warm Mediterranean day or evening.

The historic towns of Pézenas, Sète and Agde are but a short drive and are fascinating for their art and antiques, markets and shops. (You should visit some vineyards along the way and test their wares …)

Activities are numerous. Take a relaxing stroll along the étang de Thau or a cycle along the ‘Voie Verte’ ... a dedicated cycle-path which runs along the beach all the way to Sète. Or indulge yourself in sporting fun such as golf, sailing and fishing and maybe try kite-surfing and wake-boarding.

The airport at Béziers is just 20 minutes by car/bus and we are further served by the airports at Montpellier, Carcassonne and Perpignan.

About Valérie

The house owners, Valérie and Éric, are a professional couple who have lived in Marseillan for 20 years. With a great deal of experience in both hospitality and property, they are ideally placed to ensure your holiday stay is relaxed, comfortable and trouble-free. They know the town and the region intimately and will be happy to help with any queries you may have. Both speak English.

Why Valérie chose Marseillan

We have lived in Marseillan for 20 years. We moved here for the climate, the culture and the conviviality of the people. We previously had another lovely house nearer to the port, but we decided to move into the centre of the town when the opportunity arose to purchase this super 'vigneronne'.

Although plump in the heart of Marseillan, the house is a relaxed haven from the daily bustle of life in a small Mediterranean town and the walled garden is private and peaceful.

We are happy to be here.

Superbly located spacious appartment with lovely garden. Great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Marseillan. It is just a short walk to the town centre and port but the enclosed garden with pool gives the

property a very private feel. The accommodation is comfortable and well equipped and the appartment is

spacious and light. The owners Vallerie and Eric were very helpful and welcoming. We hope to return some time

soon.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week in Marseillan. Lovely private garden and free parking. Handy for the town and port. Owners live above but friendly and discreet. The pool is quite bracing but good for a refreshing dip. NB the main bedroom has no door (just a screen) and second bedroom door has to be kept open for ventilation. Marseillan is charming - don't miss the English guided tour on Wednesday mornings.

Perfect place for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this property and we were not disappointed! Since our last visit Eric and Valerie have installed a beautiful pool next to the apartment which was very welcome on hot days and a lovely place to sit with a glass of wine in the evening.

The property is located near the centre of town but is totally private whilst being close to bars and restaurants. It is a short drive from the supermarket and the beach at Marseillan Plage.

Our hosts were very helpful and attentive and the apartment is very clean and well equipped.

We have already recommended this property to a number of our friends and intend to return there ourselves very soon.

There are a number of excellent bakeries nearby and our favourite restaurants are Dai Long (Vietnamese), Pizza Bella and the Chateau Du Port. Belem bar is also a great place to sit and watch the world go by!

Thank you Eric and Valeriefor a brilliant 3 weeks!

Modern, spacious, cool and comfortable. At the centre of the village close to amenities yet private

  • 5 of 5

Valerie and Eric were very welcoming and the property was very comfortable and cool. We liked being in the centre of the village so we could pop out for bread and anything we needed. We could stroll to the many restaurants and bars yet the property itself was very secluded and quiet. The pool was lovely and refreshing and the garden had shade and glorious sunshine. Marseillan is a lovely village with lots to see and explore but not too busy. Beautiful beaches are 15 minutes drive away avoid Marseillan Plage unless you like it busy with lots of other holiday makers. We'd like to go back and would very happily stay here again.

A great 1 Week family Holiday in Marseillan

  • 4 of 5

The property was within close walking distance of the harbour, with a handy bakery just across the adjacent parking area. Marseillan itself has a more traditional feel than the nearby Marseillan Plage, which is MUCH more touristy (although fun to visit the fun fair and the beach). There are some lovely local restaurants and a good market too.

The pool at the apartment (only just built prior to our stay) was wonderfully maintained and a definite benefit in the hot weather. It is only small, but it does have a water jet which you can switch on and swim against if you want to exercise. With the patio area outside the doors to the apartment and the shaded area near the pool it was a great area for us to relax in.

The owners live upstairs (with a separate entrance) but keep themselves to themselves whilst being very friendly and helpful when we did have any questions. The apartment is pleasant and cool, and whilst it's simply furnished and kitted out, it was more than adequate for a family of four and we very much enjoyed our stay. We would recommend this for a family of four (as long as your children are happy to share a fairly small room) and we would definitely consider returning there ourselves some time.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This property occupies the ground floor of an old town house set in a walled garden. The apartment was clean, chic and well equipped and the owners Valerie and Eric are the perfect hosts and are always on hand for local information whilst maintaining guests privacy. The property was ideal for us as a couple and would certainly recommend it to friends and family as its location is well suited to all tastes. The port area and all its bars and cafes,the town and it's authentic taste of French life, the caves for local wines and of course the miles of sandy Mediterranean beaches. Merci Valerie et Eric pour notre sejour avec vous, nous esperons retourner l'anne prochain!
