About Enzo Ascenzi

I am an Italian Veterinary Surgeon working in Northern Ireland. Born and bred Italian, and I worked on small animals in Italy for a short time before moving to Kenya (Amboseli National Park) where I deepened my knowledge on behaviour of African wildlife, especially wild cats and elephants. I then moved to England where I worked for the Department of Agriculture before making my last move to Northern Ireland were I also work for the Department of Agriculture. Here I met my partner Katherine who is Irish and she introduced me to the Languedoc a few years ago. Since then I never looked back and last year we decided to buy a property there. I love the local culture, that reminds me a lot about Italy, and attitude. I love the food, the wines and, most of all, the lifestyle.

Enzo Ascenzi purchased this house in 2014

Why Enzo Ascenzi chose Agde area

The house is really charming and traditional. We loved it from the first viewing and we are very happy about it. It is located in one of the traditional narrow streets which are characteristic of the old Marseillan town centre. Our plan is to keep it as traditional as possible, avoiding excess of modernity.

Ideally located, quiet and well eqipped townhouse

  • 5 of 5

This charming house provides a base from which you can walk to local shops (bakeries,butcher,greengrocer,pharmacies, small supermarket and fresh fish stalls in the covered market).

The harbour is a few minutes walk away and has several restaurants and cafes where you can observe marine activities while you eat or have a beer or aperitif.

Sandy beaches are only a 10 minute drive (or a bus ride) away.

A great place for a relaxing holiday.

Lovely homely, well located little house

  • 5 of 5

This charming 1 bedroomed house was in a quiet pretty street, very central to everything in Marseillan. The owners gave us very good directions and had left us extras like bottles of drinking water, soap, washing up liquid, cooking oil etc. Very useful and thoughtful. Could definitely recommend this house.

Beautiful Marseillan

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 4, with young children, the house offered us an ideal base in Marseillan. Everything is within walking, close to kids play park, the lagoon, the baby ski shack, boulangaries and many different restaurants, the market, butchers, blue and white striped Coquille stalls, caveaus and the port itself.

The village is very much untouched and traditional as is the townhouse but with every modern convenience, found amongst the winding cobbled lanes just off the centre of the village square. We found the house homely and serene after our packed days in Langedoc.

The sun terrace in the evenings is a lovely place to star gaze, lit by the lights from the nearby church.

We have already booked our next holiday there and can't wait.

A second home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the stay in Marseillan in this cosy little house. In a quiet little street but closed to all you need - shops, pharmacy, restaurants and port. We definitely will come for another holiday.

Thanks to Enzo and Katherine for the very good comunication and although to Angie.
