'Fabulous holiday home'

Derek met us on arrival and went through everything we might need to have a great holiday. The house is super.It has wifi sky TV plus everything else you need like fridge cooker washing machine etc. A short walk to lovely harbour and short drive to fantastic beaches.

I can not say enough about the place it was lovely and my wife daughter and her boyfriend and I had a great time.The house has loads of room and a lovely pool which was spotless.A wonderful holiday in a lovely part of France.

Even now sat back home thinking of what to say we cannot recall anything about the property that was not exactly as the listing described. Our stay was well into the season but the apartment and all of its facilities were in tip top condition .

The stroll into town is flat with the lagoon offering something new every time and most evenings there were free events around the port area.

The more I think about it,the more Id like to tell you, but if Idid there would be

no slots available at Derek & Lisa for us to return!

Review Submitted: Sep 5, 2015 Date of Stay: Aug 2015"Brilliant Place To Stay"

Lovely comfortable villa, with relaxing pool and sun patio. Location is excellent for pleasant walk to port, restaurants and town. The villa is situated on a small estate which was very quiet, and the road ended at the vineyard. The owners, Derek and Lisa were great hosts and were very attentive and informative. The visit to Noilly Prat was excellent and Lisa a great tour guide. They also made a fuss of our dog who loved it. We would definitely consider visiting again.

About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Derek Callender

Lisa and I have been living in Marseillan for over 13 years now successfully operating our self catering holiday Villa and Apartment which keeps us very busy in between occasionally sampling the local beverages!<br/><br/>I am retired from business but keep very busy running our bookings and maintaining swimming pools etc. Lisa works part time locally as a guide/ interpreter for a well known winery here.

Year property purchased 2003
Why this location? Marseillan is a very picturesque harbour side village on the sea water lagoon (connected to the Med.) called the Etang de Thau. It is full of Mediterranean charm with bags of French atmosphere and lots to do and see and lots to eat and drink!
Often likened to St. Tropez 50 years ago !
Our properties with pools are located on the vineyards, 300 metres from the Lagoon, 800 metres from the Port and approx. 3kms from the long sandy Med. beaches running between Sete and Cap D'Agde. Both are within easy safe level walking distance (day or night) alongside the lagoon of the harbour side restaurants and town centre.
Marseillan is famous for it's locally grown Oysters and shell fish which are especially delicious washed down with the local Picpoul White wine.
The Canal du Midi starts at Marseillan which was originally built in the 17th century to facilitate transport connection with the Atlantic and Bordeaux
Unique benefits of property Our properties, both with private swimming pools are located on the vineyards, 300 metres from the Lagoon, 800 metres from the Port and approx. 3kms from the long sandy Med. beaches running between Sete and Cap D'Agde. Both are within easy safe level walking distance (day or night) alongside the lagoon of the harbour side restaurants and town centre.

Enjoyed our stay in Marseillan and Derek was very friendly and welcoming.
Superb location and plenty to enjoy.

Villa was clean and tidy and pool was very enjoyable after a day in the heat.

Would return most definitely.

We were delighted with the villa. Very clean and comfortable. Highly recommend hiring bikes to make full use of the great cycling lanes in the area.

We had a great time at the villa, a very comfortable house, excellent facilities and the very clea pool. It is a great location from which to explore the region, taste the oysters and to soak up some sun on the beaches. Marseillan is a great little village and the Portside restaurants are a must in the evening as are the various bars and cafes.

The house was well maintained and very clean on arrival and Lisa & Derek were very friendly and welcoming, the bottle of Prosecco as a welcome gift was particularly refreshing after our long drive.

The region has much to see and a visit to Montpellier & Pezenas are a must,. We spent some time on and walking the superb beaches which run from Cap d'agde to Sete.

This is our second stay at the villa which wont be our last !

The location has a natural charm the mix between locals and tourists seems to flow with ease. Plenty of opportunities to tour the area or you could simply enjoy the locale. The Villa was clean and tidy and had all the home comforts you needed whilst on holiday. The hosts we’re helpful and on call should you need their assistance. Would we consider returning to the area and staying in the same Villa? The answer is simple. A bery big YES!
