We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful house and hope you enjoy Marseillan as much as we do.

Excellent townhouse in a great location, within easy reach of everything you need
This lovely property is perfectly placed for easy access to the beautiful town of Marseillan. The popular port is a short walk, with a selection of good quality cafes, bars and restaurants even at New Year. The beach (Marseillan-Plage) is a rewarding walk of less than 1hr walk or an easy 15 minute cycle. The supermarket (Carrefour) is also only a short 10 minute walk. Everything you need to experience this gorgeous waterside place, in a cosy well equipped house.
Thanks Mark...really pleased you enjoyed both the house and its position in town. Look forward to welcoming you back at some point in the future. Martin
We had a great time in Marseillan, we liked the quiet and convenience
The house was perfect, the main dining/ living room was spacious and kitchen well-equipped. A bottle of wine as well as coffee and milk were appreciated. The upper terrace was also great. The only caution we would give others are that the spiral stairs may not be good for children or older adults to navigate.
Great home, central to city. We loved Martin's place, and will definitely be here again! Aircon worked great, we could not have picked a better place to stay.
Modern well equipped townhouse in charming village
Another superb stay in Marseillan. 3rd visit and our first choice in Marseillan. Martin is a responsive owner, with obvious pride in his properties and ensuring guests have a fabulous holiday. Clear instructions and lots of local insights. House was spotlessly clean, with everything you need for a stay. Private terrace provides that outdoor space for enjoying the sun. WiFi excellent. Stairs steep. Marseillan has everything you need in a village and a charming harbour side all 2 mins walk from the house and the beaches and bigger towns such as Sète are short car/bus/bike ride away. Book with confidence and you will have a great time.
Thanks Andrew...that's very kind. Glad you you had a great time and looking forward to welcoming you again next time. Martin
Lovely house in a great location
We had a very enjoyable week’s stay in this very comfortable and well equipped house in the heart of Marseillan. The house was very clean and well maintained and the kitchen had everything we needed and more for full ‘from scratch’ meals. Its location is perfect at just a minute’s walk from the local boulangerie and the little supermarket for all the essentials, with plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from all within a ten minute walk. There are plenty of places to visit in the area including the lovely sandy beach at Marseillan Plage with its resort shops and restaurants, pretty ports at Meze and Sete and inland, the the beautiful old towns of Beziers and Pezenas. All in all, impressive accommodation in a great area with something for everyone - highly recommended!
Thank you for your lovely review and really pleased you enjoyed your stay. Look forward to welcoming you back to Marseillan in the future. Martin
Aussergewöhnlich schöne Ferien mit Hund
Wir verbrachten 2 erholsame und interessante Wochen in diesem Stadthaus in Marseillan und in der attraktiven Gegend des Languedoc. Auch unsere beiden Hunde fühlten sich wohl.
Die Küche ist praktisch eingerichtet, die Betten sind gut, das WLAN funktioniert einwandfrei und die Heizung auch. Nicht weit vom Haus hat es Parkplätze, sodass wir jedesmal einen Platz gefunden haben. Das Städtchen Marseillan bietet alles nötige, Bäcker, Gemüsehändler und Metzger (etwas weniger zu empfehlen), alles in Reichweite zu Fuss. Wir besuchten den Markt in den Halles von Narbonne, da findet man alles im Überfluss, eine Augenweide. Auch Bezier ist empfehlenswert und sein Flohmarkt auf den Allées Riquet. In Montpellier nahmen wir den Petit train und Carcassonne (Cité) verzaubert mit seinem mittelalterlichen Flair (etwas turistisch), nicht zu vergessen Pézenas. Es hat kleinere Museen in unmittelbarer Nähe, die sehr zu empfehlen sind: Gallo-röm. Haus von Loupian und das Museum de L'Ephèse (Unterwasser-Archaeologie).
Wir sahen bei "Bouzigues" und "Mas des Dunes" Flamingos, was uns besonders freute, ebenso wie die rosa blühenden Mandelbäume, die vielen Rebstöcke, die Salzseen mit der Austernzucht und natürlich das Mittelmeer. Zeitweise ging ein starker Wind, was etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig war.
Wir haben diese Ferien sehr genossen. Auch können wir die dieses Stadthaus wärmstens empfehlen.
