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 Marseillan
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.

An ideal holiday home in a 'normal' village.
Small but it had everything we needed. The shutters were a novelty and protected us from a thunderstorm which roared most of the night - we heard nothing! There were some interesting touches, the mirror in the bathroom and the crochet curtains in the bedroom.
The shower was very efficient but we had a few accidents/leaks through the plastic curtains!
It was comfortable and clean and an excellent base when exploring the area.
Thank you for your review
Enzo and Katherine
Very charming well equipped house with a lovely roof terrace.
Very charming house, comfortable stay with all the required equipment. The roof terrace especially nice with large table and chairs and sun beds. The house is in a quiet street with very friendly neighbours.

A great place for a relaxing holiday.
Thank you so much for the kind review. We hope to see you again soon.
Lovely homely, well located little house
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.
Thank you so much for the lovely review. Hope to see you soon
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.
