The Languedoc-Roussillon / Herault region
The Languedoc-Roussillon is one of the most fascinating areas of Europe, bordering the Mediterranean Sea to the east and the Pyrenees Mountains to the south. It benefits from an exceptional climate and has an unusually rich wildlife, a spectacular coast, and surprising history. Things to see include mountains, rivers and lakes, ancient cities, towns, villages, thermal springs, abbeys, and cathedrals, châteaux and castles, notably the famous mountain fortresses popularly known as Cathar Castles.
In recent years it has become a popular French holiday destination, with long sunny days, Mediterranean beaches, tourist facilities, thousands of miles of walks, and rides, National Parks and wildlife reserves (such as the Camargue and the Cevennes), thermal springs and spas, grottoes and caves, and vestiges of the Languedoc's long history, including dinosaur bones and eggs, prehistoric human remains, dolmens and megaliths, geology, archaeology and palaeontology, Greek and Roman architecture, and everywhere reminders of the the Cathars, the papal Crusade against them, and the Papal Inquisition that followed the crusade.
Things to do in the Languedoc-Roussillon include a range of holidays, including naturist holidays and activity holidays. Sports include a wide range of land sports, water sports, air sports, mountain sports, winter sports, golf, hunting, shooting, hawking, and fishing. There are also numerous cultural activities, along with French regional food specialties, and Languedoc wines. Local festivals range from bull-running to the Fecos in Limoux and from sea-jousting in the north to celebrating la jour de St-Jean in the south by fire-jumping.
The Marseillan area
The Marseillan area
Marseillan is located on an inland salt water lake called the L'Etang de Thau, served by two canals linking it to the Mediterranean on one side and the atlantic on the other,.
The L' Etang is a great place for fishing, sailing, canoes or even swimming
You can hire a boat and go into the lake or the Mediterranean sea in Marseillan plage or Cap D Agde for a very reasonable cost
The house is perfectly located on the main square in the centre of town, with secure parking in the garage or parking outside the house
Two minutes walk from the house you may sit at one of the many port side restaurants and watch the bustle of the harbour, with everything from simple fishing boats to canal barges arriving and leaving. In the port area there is the distillery of Noilly Prat, a famous Vermouth. There you can enjoy a guided tour of the whole production process and a tasting afterwards.
The house is next to the bakery, chemist, butcher and spar supermarket, we are opposite Table D' emily which is the best restaurant in the village and the area too!
Every Tuesday there is a market in the centre of the town, just look out your 1st floor room and you can see it!, with fabulous displays of fruits, vegetables, raw and cooked meats, English books, cheeses, olives, soaps, clothes and gifts - something for everyone.
The famous Capelet or "greasy pole" competition is held on the 14th of July in the port. Every Friday night during the months of July and August, a street market is held in the centre of town. When you've finished shopping, sit and have a drink as you people watch.
Within 4 km of the house is the stunning beach of Marseillan plage, which is a 12km long stretch of beautiful golden sand. There is ample parking and numerous restaurants to enjoy. There's even a bouncy castle playground for the kids towards Sète.
Take a trip into the beautiful surrounding countryside, with vines as far as the eyes can see, and enjoy trips to some of the local vineyards. This region has now been awarded new wine appellations so there are some excellent wines to try
Only a short distance from Marseillan and you will find numerous beautiful and historic places to visit, including castles, abbey's such as the Abbaye de Vallemangne, spectacular gorges around the Pont de Diable, grotto's such as Les Grottes de Demoisselles and caves.
Some of the beautiful and historical cities in Languedoc include Beziers, Narbonne, and the walled city of Carcassonne. The nearest large town to Marseillan is Sete, which is the second largest fishing port in France and the largest on the Mediterranean.
After all the sight seeing, market shopping and lazing by the beach, sit and relax at one of the cafes and bars in the port, with a cool glass of wine, this is a protected port so it is like something from the 1950s
