Car: Recommended

The village of Marseillette is close to Carcassonne in the southern Minervois region of the Languedoc. It sits between the Canal du Midi and the river Aude. A typical French village with a population of around 700, following alongside the Canal du Midi which is extensively used by hired boats & privately owned yachts and barges. It's a fabulous location for seeing the area or if you need your batteries recharging then you don't need to travel too far to see authentic French life. We have a wonderful Boulangerie, bar, hotel & hairdressers in the village.

The property is at the edge of the village and virtually surrounded by vineyards. The local industry is wine making!! Plenty of picturesque places to visit close by and historical sites. If you like walking, sight seeing, bird watching or wanting to just sun bathe then everything is here.

Trebes close by, offers all the necessary facilities such as; Grocers, petrol, supermarkets, chemist, newsagent, banks etc. All major stores and supermarkets are found in Trebes & Carcassonne. There is a mini supermarket in Capendu only 2 kms away open 6 days a week and sells most items. Marseillette is a great base for exploring the beautiful countryside and discovering new local wines. Cathar history, Beziers, Minerve, Caves / Grottos, Narbonne & the Mediterranean Sea, Spain are all close by.

Golf: Carcassonne has a beautiful 18 hole Par 71 - 5,758 metre golf course playable all year round with views of the Pyrenees and which is only a 20 minute drive away.
