|Year property purchased||2008|
|Why this location?||I bought the house of which Studio du Lac is part in 2008, and originally used it as a holiday home. I discovered Marseillan when I used to travel several times a year to the area to visit the international antiques fairs at Montpellier and Beziers. I was entranced by the relatively unspoilt nature of the town, and enjoyed discovering the area's amazing wines and delicious seafood.|

Two opportunities for outside living
From the privacy of your front terrace you can enjoy panoramic views of Sète's Mont St Clair, which appears island-like across the lagoon, and the yachts of Marseillan marina.

Marseillan is a sea-food lover's dream........enjoy oysters straight from the Etang du Thau (raw or gratinated); a 'brasucaude' (mussels barbequed over a fire of vine wood, usually in a piquant sauce); sea bass, sea bream, sardines; stuffed squid and 'tielles' (pastry pies filled with a tasty mix of sea food in a tomato-ey sauce) which are the local specialities of Sete.
The whole area around Marseillan is renowned for its world-class wines. There are 2 wineries within a few minutes walk of the Studio, and many, many others a just a short drive away. Probably the most famous of the local wines is Picpoul de Pinet - a delicious white wine which is a perfect accompaniment to fish and seafood. All the wine producers offer free tastings.
The vermouth distillery Noilly-Prat is also within a few minutes walk......here you can have a tour of the distillery with tastings of the white, red and ambre vermouths.
