"I can't wait to go back"
The apartment was more than you caould want for a week or two away. It has everything. Good size, 2 bedrooms and super kitchen/living area with all you could need, washing machine, dishwasher, cooker, TV and more. It is more like an aprtment to live in than just to holiday in. It also has a very new and clean feel to it.
It is right in the centre of the village with walking access to lot's of Cafes and restaurants as well as good supermarket. There are plenty of little Vegetable shops and boulengiers around as well.
Marseillan is a gem of a place. What I loved about it was it's laid back atmosphere and it is completely not commercialised. If you want shopping, this is not the place for you though Mountpellier is only a 50 minute drive away and it has plenty and has a beautiful town centre.
There are also some great restaurants and for you fish lovers out there you will truly be spoilt.
The East beach in Marseillan is beautiful and not too far away you have water parks and a dinosaur land which my kids loved though I could have done without all the "how did they become extinct" questions afterwards. Other interests are the amount of wineries around, this being a Languedoc village.
I could not recomment Marseillan enough, sitting back at one of the cafes and having a coffee or beer at 5 or 6pm after a day on the beach is something I missing like hell this week.
Not only would I recommend Marseillan and "Chez Olive" to a friend but I guarantee I will be going back.

"Light, airy, comfortable, clean and recently modernised centrally located apartment."
Although compact it's and incredibly spacious apartment with fans and large windows to cool the August heat. You are literally on the doorstep of a great fruit and vegetable seller, numerous patisseries, bank, paper shops and restaurants. There is a new Carrefour (supermarket) less than ten minutes walk but in the opposite direction. We spent five days exploring; hiring bikes from the harbour and cycling from Marsillian along the Canal du Midi to Agde (twice because it was so wonderful) as well as along the mediterranean beach path to Sete -finding great places to either picnic or lunch along the way. We also drove as far as the spectacular gorge to bathe just by Saint-Guilhem-le-desert where we found the artisan shops, later driving around Lac de Salagou and then finding Chateau du Jonquieres where we tried their five wines. We ate a lot of local shellfish from oysters in Bouziques from the lake: Etang de Thau, mussels and everything else at Le Ferme Marien -where all the locals dine.
The area has so many more interesting places; Chez Olive is a super location that's decor and fittings really make you feel you are staying somewhere special. I would return.
