Why Mr Graham Moses & Dominique Schwartz (French) see further details. chose Marseillan
We bought this property after spending many years enjoying family holidays in Marseillan Plage. We love the quite location but also the easy access to the bustling holiday town that is 10-15 mins walk around a lovely port. We love the beach but also the many local attractions and amenities. We love to visit Mareillan, Sete, Agde and Cap'd Agde

Lovely spot right on the beach
We really enjoyed our stay, lovely quiet location right on the beach. Nice apartment and great communication from the owners and hosts. Thank you!
Thank you Amy for taking the time to post a review. I am so glad that you enjoyed your holiday and hope to see you again sometime in the future.
Lovely we'll equipped villa
This was our second visit to the villa - not disappointed! Superb sea view with direct access to beautiful sandy beach. Everything you need is provided for. Lots to do in the surrounding area. The owner is quick to respond to any enquiries, and the property manager is very friendly and helpful. She even collected and dropped us back off at Agde railway station. Will be back for another visit. Would highly recommend.
Beautiful Beach - Bliss!
The property is set within a small, tasteful complex with direct access to the beach.
The contents have been well thought-out and include such items as a shoe rack, a corkscrew and a bicycle repair kit, to go along with the bikes.
The owner is friendly and responds to any questions very quickly. His agents are extremely welcoming. Nicole helped me to organise a birthday cake for my daughters birthday. Not such an easy task, out of season and during local holidays!
We thoroughly enjoyed our 'out of season' experience. We would definitely recommend it to anyone who's looking for peace and quiet. Generally, we had the beautiful beach to ourselves.
We took the children to the Reserve Africaine de Sigean. Expensive, but well worth a visit.
We also took a trip to Meze Dinosaur Park. Another delight.
A lovely little house, pictures are up to date, house is modern, clean and well equipped. Everything is as described, but the views of the beach and easy access are under-sold. Had a fantastic time sightseeing, shopping in local markets and long, long walks on the beach which was never crowded. Internet access was an added bonus. Thanks to Nicole for her warm welcome & Graham for the loan of his holiday house
That’s right, people! We are back for our second trip to Marseillan Plage, and what better place to stay than in this lovely villa where Nicole and Dom make you feel like family (our review was last posted in July 2009)
On our first day, Nicole and Dom met us at the villa and brought fresh figs from their garden, and when we realized there was no parasol to use on the beach, Nicole and Dom drove back later in the day to loan their parasol to us. Their hospitality is commendable!
We enjoyed everything as much as we did during our first visit in 2009, and even more.
A new bike path
There is now a paved bike path from Marseillan Plage to Sete, and there are sections where cars are not allowed. The path winds its way along the beach, by what appears to be part of an old castle, through a campground, and then into a winery. I jogged it every morning and cycled it every evening.
The new bikes are a fantastic addition to the villa! My husband and I rode everywhere. After jogging the bike path each morning, we’d ride bikes into the village and buy a flute and two almond pastries. We’d ride back and have breakfast on the back patio, while watching the beach.
Paved back yard
Unfortunately, we had three windy beach days, and sitting on the beach was almost impossible (unless you don’t mind cleaning sound out of every crevice on your body!). Fortunately, Graham recently paved the back yard, so my husband and I would sit on the loungers in the back yard and sun bathe until the wind subsided.
Thanks again to Graham, Dom and Nicole for a lovely visit to France. We hope to be back again!
We stayed in this property during the off-season and knew we wouldn't be able to go in the water, but it was so wonderful to see and hear the sea everyday! The stormy weather made for a wonderful water show and the shells we found were amazing!
We were welcomed at the train station by Dominique and Nicole, local overseers of the property, and they were a God send! They helped us to get to our rental car office, showed us to the beach house and explained how things worked. They were also available when we had questions.
The property itself is perfect in size and amenities. Ample closet space, very warm bedding and nice pillows. We ran out of hot water twice, but think we were probably using too much. The garden area was perfect for little explorers to search and dig. The stairs were a favorite of my sons so I was on my toes all of the time.
We rented a car to explore the other cities and it was really a necessity. We visited many cities from Montpellier to Carcassone and the drives were easy and not too long. We enjoyed getting to know the area by car and feeling like we didn't need a map anymore by the end of the holiday.
We liked the feeling that we were almost the only visitors in the area with the town closed down. Although we could imagine the bustle of people there in the summer. We met some local shop owners and felt as though we knew them by the end of our visit.
I would recommend this location and hope to visit again soon!
Thank you Graham, Dominique and Nicole.
The villa is close to the traditional towns of Marseillan and Florensac and the ancient town of Pezenas. It is also a short drive to Cap d'Agde where a superb water park can be found for all the family. International Golf course also nearby. The town of Sete has some great bars and restaurants as well as night clubs. There are two night clubs within easy walking distance of the villa. Numerous water sports available on the beach and nearby Canal du Midi. There are some very good restaurants the owners agent can provide advice. For retail therapy Montpellier is 50min drive away, with large well stocked super markets less than 10mins drive. The medieval town of Carcassonne is just over 1 hr away, Perpignan is a similar distance. Five Airports, Beziers (30mins), Nimes (1hr 15mins), Montpellier(45mins), Carcassonne and Perpignan(1hr 20mins). Narbonne train station 40 mins away where fast trains to and from the north of France can be found, together with overnight trains to Calais.
