The property sits by the little local port and as you sit outside in the morning on the sunny terrace enjoying a coffee and croissant you can watch boats coming in/out and the comings and goings of local port life.
By the terrace is the living room with a large table for indoor dining. If you are taken to cook at home instead of strolling to one of the many local restaurants enjoy the cool of the evening on the terrace. The sitting area has a comfy sofa and chairs, radio and tv.
There are 2 bedrooms, one double with fabulous water/ port views and one twin (beds can be pushed together for 2 doubles). On a sunny morning guests have commented that they can start their tan in bed. There is a wc with a good size basin and shower on this floor also.
22 weeks have already been booked out in 2015 to regulars who come every year and love the proximity to the boats, water, shops, cafes and restaurants. It is a quiet area apart from the ducks that quack and a little upmarket due to proximity to the Port Rives Gauches apart-hotel and stylish new apartments which were finished in September 2014.
Private parking space for one car is available in the private car park. Also parking with boats/trailers at the front. Wifi included and there is also WIFI at the local Marine Bar if you are out having a drink/coffee.

Marseillan is one of the oldest villages in France and was founded around 535 BC.
Marseillan became the entry port for the Canal du Midi in 1681. Oysters from the salt-water lake are famous throughout France, and make up 10% of all oysters consumed in France.
If you like to be on the water, sailing can be arranged from the local Marseillan marina on a beautiful yacht with skipper (with or without lunch)
Historical places to drive to include Pezenas, Carcassonne, Sete, Nimes and Montpellier.
Lovely villages to drive to include Bages, Peyriac sur Mer, St. Guilhem le Desert, Uzes, Aigues Mortes and Clermont-l'Herault.
If you can drag yourself away from Marseillan and its lovely restaurants (portside restaurants just a few minutes walk), village life, boating activities and nearby beaches, within a short drive (minutes away) are some fabulous massive sandy beaches with beach bars and resaurants galore. Also a little further are wonderful towns such as Pezenas, Sete and Montpellier with many cultural activities.
Just over one hour away is the town of Carcassonne. A drive along the Cathar route from Bezier is delightful as is a light oyster or mussel lunch with local wine in the aptly named nearby village Bouzigues!
Or stay in Marseillan and enjoy a day out sailing on a yacht (with a qualified skipper) or take part in watersports from the local beach (kayaks, paddle-boarding etc)
