About this property

Stunning Views over the Water from the Sunny Terrace. This apartment is in a coastal setting.

Lovely waterside property, with air con, good wifi and large bathroom with bath. 2 bedrooms (double and twin) plus large, sunny, south-facing terrace for dining/sitting in sun watching boats and strollers. Overlooking Marseillan old port and boat marina. Ideal for couple or family.

Last summer availability: September 21 (1 week) then November onwards. Watch the world strolling along the waterside, watch the yachts and barges come and go or take a couple of minutes stroll to the many cafes, restaurants and bars on the port

Sitting in the property you will be delighted at how close you are to Marseillan's pretty marina with its excellent choice of waterfront restaurants and cafés. The views across the waterside constantly stun and the evening sun allows you to enjoy a glass of something cool and look at the yachts coming in.

The property has a spacious living, dining and kitchen area. New large bathroom with relaxing bath and shower over! As the property is new everything within is sparkling e.g. fridge with freezer, cooker with hob and washing machine. Air conditioning and lift. Location is by the waterfront and next to the Port Rives Gauches.

A few minutes walk away from the port is a small local beach, tennis courts and a new selection of stylish but simple restaurants serving smoked moules, oysters and wine. By the beach there is a water sports area where you can paddle board, kayak or learn to wind surf! Also if travelling with small children there is a lovely park and bbqs for all to use. Very long sandy beach about 5 mins drive with beach clubs.

Marseillan is a ‘hidden gem’ with very pretty port and is a stopping point for those travelling along the Canal du Midi. Steeped in history Marseillan is possibly the oldest village in France. The area was originally settled by the Greeks more than 2500 years ago and was a very active Roman commercial centre.

With an old village it is still relatively unknown but once you know about it beware as you will want to keep coming back! There are about 15-20 places to eat, shops selling everything you need - boulangeries, pharmacies, greengrocers, fish, meat and everyday essentials (all within a few minutes walk).

Travel a little further afield and you can visit the old port of Sete, historical Pezenas, Carcassonne, Aigues Mortes, Uzes, Montpellier, riverside villages, mountains, gorges and other waterside villages such as Bouzigues aptly named for a bouzy, fishy lunch.

Getting to Marseillan is easy, many people from the UK drive which takes a day and many people stop somewhere on the way.

Flying there are 4 airports within driving distance. Beziers (20 mins drive), Montpellier (50 mins drive), Nimes (60 minutes drive) and Carcassonne (about 75 mins drive). UK flights are from Luton, Liverpool, Manchester, Bristol, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow and more (depending on time of year). Also you can get a train from London. St Pancras.
