The house 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 round 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.
Upstairs 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.
Special price for Winter weeks starting at £200 - please look under 'prices' for latest prices.
Private parking space for one car is available in the car park behind the house. Wifi can be arranged on request. There is FREE WIFI at the local Marine Bar if you need to keep in touch.

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)
