Why Mr Peter Sørensen chose Marseillan
If you want to stay in a original house this is the place. Very spacious and well equipped house in the old part of Marseillan. You wil feel this like your own home. Because this house has facades towards 2 streets it is easy to get it aired. We don't have aircon's in the house but a fan or 2 and in Our opinion it is not necessary and we don't like the look of it :-)

I can confirm a previous reviewer re the condition of the property. The decor is a bit dated and shabby except for the kitchen which is good. It was extremely hot when we were there and would have appreciated another fan as there was only one which was very noisy so useless when trying to sleep and there was little or no through draft to cool us so we had many sleepless nights. The house is in the old historic part which has narrow roads and although there was a limited amount of parking we always managed to get one. Beware though, as we found our hire car badly scratched one morning. It was also very noisy at times with kids on motor bikes in the wee small hours. On the positive side the gite is very conveniently placed for the town and port and the surrounding area and villages around the etang are lovely.
Beautiful house in Marseillan
A beautiful house in Marseillan, very tastefully decorated and well equipped. It is a very large and spacious house over 3 floors with 2 lovely sunny terraces on the top floor. A great position in the centre of the historic part of the town with 2 minute walk to shops yet quiet and peaceful at the same time. Arrival and departure were easy and well organised by the owners who were also helpful and flexible with dates and times. Will definitely return.
Fantastic townhouse restored with the most beautiful attention to detail and respect for its origins. All three floors have a very special atmosphere and you are not sure whether you are in France. Everything works well and the house is very well equipped. Arrival in the house is also very well run and very friendly. Two fantastic terraces where the view over the city´s beautiful crooked roofs and sunset can be enjoyed, The house´s location is really good compared to Marseillan center and the port are both very charming and with many good restaurents and cafes. Short distance to the beautiful Mediterranean Sea and the magnificent beach. The small towns around inside the lake and weekly market in Marseillan and Sete highly recommended.
Lovely House, Bedrooms need an Upgrade
The living areas of this lovely town house are really first rate. The kitchen especially is spacious, atmospheric and superbly equiped. The living room is equally spacious, full of character and very comfortable. The 2 roof terraces are also great. Luckily we only needed to use 2 of the 3 bedrooms as the third smelt so badly of damp as to be unusable. The second bedrom on the ground floor was the best, clean and bright with comfortable double bed and modern wardrobe. The master bedroom was full of character and also had a comfortable bed but there was a slight smell of damp especially in the built in wardrobes even in early September and the wallpaper was beginning to peel. The main bathroom and separate shower room while functional were badly in need of an upgrade of the bathroom suite and decoration. The location was great for both the centre of Marseillan which is lovely with plenty of resturants and cafes. It can get a bit noisy at times but this is only to be expected in a town house. In summary, if the bedrooms and bathrooms are upgraded to the superb standard of the living areas then this will be a truly remarkable property.
We are well aware of the bathrooms needing an upgrade and this will be done next spring. Concerning the damp this is a problem in most houses in Marseillan during autumn/winter.
Still we have this on Our TODO list aswell.
When doing any work in the house it is essential for us to keep the character . This is what we like in a French house.
Sehr nettes Ambiente
Eine sehr gemütliche Unterkunft. Es war alles da um einen gelungenen Urlaub zu verbringen. Der Ort war nicht vom Tourismus geprägt, so dass man sich richtig "wie in Frankreich" fühlen konnte
Thank you Susanne and Peter
Perfekt und komplett ausgestattetes Haus, bei dem wirklich an alles gedacht wurde und das mit Liebe zum Detail.
Wir haben die Dachterrasse sehr genossen.
Das idyllische Marceillan und die Zentrale Lage des Hauses, Bäcker, Spar, Caffes, Obst und Gemüse Läden alles zu Fuß um die Ecke erreichbar, uns hat es sehr gut gefallen.
Die kleinen typischen Gässchen sind nichts für größere Autos, das sollte man bedenken und zeitig einen Parkplatz, max 5 Minuten zu Fuß, suchen
Marseillan is an exceptionally pleasant and attractive small town, one of the few remaining unspoilt harbours of the western Mediterranean, lying close to the sea but not on it. The house is located in the inner part of the town which is very 'picturesque'
As such, it's a marvellous place to relax and an excellent base for discovering the Languedoc 'Entre Mer et Montagne' (with a lot of grapes in-between).
The 'Mediterané' only 5 minutes away by car. On this lovely beach going from Sète to Marseillan you can always find room.
If you fancy walking the Cévennes just 1 hour ride by car. Here you have a lot of tourist attractions.
