Overview

About the property

A truly magical home in the shadow of Marseillan's famous clocher belltower, this offers the ultimate in village living - just two minutes stroll from the bobbing masts and swooping seabirds of the legendary gastronomic quaysides of Marseillan's picturesque port.

Despite having more than a dozen restaurants a whistle from the front door, you may not want to leave the house. In the fabulous modern kitchen, you can prepare memorable meals each evening. Monsieur Ricard sells fine oysters from his counter around the corner and the market and bakeries are yards away.

You don't even have to wash up - the dishwasher takes care of the plates.

Dine indoors by a real log fire in winter, dine outside on one of the house's terraces and balconies on a sultry summer night. Cosy up with a good book and glass of Picpoul de Pinet, shutters closed against the outside world, or lean out on the wrought iron railings to hear the sounds of a peña band wafted on a resfreshing evening breeze from the banks of the lagoon.

Inside, the house has every comfort. On the first floor: Two spacious double bedrooms have their own ensuite bathrooms, whilst a third twin bedroom has access to yet another bathroom - this a magnificent state of the art modern wetroom for showers à deux! The master bedroom suite has the ultimate in pampering: not just the spacious bathroom, nor the walk in wardrobe/dressing area, but its own private terrace for breakfast al fresco, or sipping a glass of Herault's finest against the ivy-covered terracotta bullestrade as a special night cap.

  • 5 of 5

"This is a beautiful house that has been very tastefully restored. The large bedrooms and a huge wetroom were more than we could have hoped for the terraces would have been great in summer. However, in the winter evenings we appreciated the big fireplace and the firewood for a cosy aperitif together before walking to the restaurant in the village. Very helpful information pack was personalised to the precise dates of our stay and offered us tips on markets and dining out this month which was a nice touch."

Map

Dozens of low cost flights to six local airports (including Beziers, just 15 minutes away); the Eurostar TGV link from London, Paris and Lille, even an easy drive from Barcelona. Marseillan is 35 minutes from Montpellier and a litte over an hour from Nimes, perpignan and Avignon and just miles from Agde.

Marseillan is a little gem - an historic Mediterranean harbour, tucked away from the brash resorts of the Med. Timeless and charming, the vieux village, with its centuries-old houses, its cobbled squares and its distinctive church tower, is just a blink away from the quayside cafes and restaurant tables of the port - but all is settled on the banks of an oyster rich lagoon a five minute drive from the beaches of the seaside resorts, safely tucked away on the other side of the lake. Of course - one could do more than merely laze away the days over fine food and wine: Nearby one could try Canoeing, Cycling, Fishing, Golf, Hiking, Horse riding, Sailing, Swimming, Tennis... perhaps next time?
