The Languedoc-Roussillon region
This part of the Languedoc has a warm Mediterranean climate tempered slightly by the proximity to the sea and the mountains. It can be hot in summer but there is often a breeze. In general there are ample amounts of sunshine from early spring to late autumn. Now the 3rd most visited region in France by British people, the Languedoc offers something for everyone. Miles of long, sandy beaches, coastal lagoons, vibrant cities such as Narbonne and Montpellier, historical sites such as Carcassonne and the Cathar castles, fabulous scenery, great cuisine and vineyards, vineyards, vineyards.
Marseillan is divided into three parts: the lovely historic port area, the village and the beach resort. It's just a very short walk from the apartment to both the port and the village which have shops, restaurants and the very interesting Noilly Prat distillery (featured in Rick Stein's French Odyssey TV progamme). Its well worth a visit.
Marseillan is a truly delightful spot and a real favourite of Joie de Vivre. The local beach is of fine sand and is about 10 minutes away to the south by car or there is a regular bus service to the beach in the summer months. Larger cities and towns in the immediate area include Beziers, Agde/Cap d'Agde, Pezenas and Sete.
Sports Facilities: A wide range of water sports is available at several coastal resorts in the region e.g. sailing, scuba diving, wind surfing etc. If you like to play a round of golf, there's a fine golf course at Cap d'Agde. Walking and cycling are both very enjoyable pursuits around here.
Activities: There's a wealth of things to see and do in this area for example in Sete you can see the nautical jousting tournaments in July and August. Alternatively you can hire a boat at various locations on the Canal du Midi, visit the ancient and interesting city of Agde, museums, abbeys and churches. Further afield: Narbonne, Carcassonne, Beziers and even a day trip to Spain is easily possible.
A lovely day out would be to visit to Pezenas, a fascinating place full of history and interest and where Moliere wrote his plays. For nightlife and nightclubs - visit Cap d'Agde.
Markets: The market in Marseillan is on a Tuesday morning. Sunday is the day for the flea market at Marseillan Plage.
Restaurants: There are many lovely restaurants for you to enjoy in Marseillan Port and you can find more details of these at the Reception desk. Seafood is a local speciality and should be enjoyed with a glass of the local wine or a cool beer!
Supermarket: There are many small shops in Marseillan including a supermarket. For a larger supermarket, you'll find one in Agde or in Sete.
