Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Marseillan, France your home away from home

Marseillan, known locally as ‘Paradis sur Terre’, is a beautiful place to take a holiday rental in France. Located on the coast of Languedoc-Roussillon on the Cap d’Agde in France, Marseillan is an ancient fishing village, whose history dates back centuries and whose charm is absolutely irresistible. Greek in origin, the streets of Marseillan are filled with fascinating monuments, hideous gargoyles and ancient houses which give the village its charming, timeless appeal.

Things to do in Marseillan, France

Marseillan villas looking out over the Etang de Thau (a 20km inland sea) are beautiful. The views from any balcony in Marseillan are ones that will stay with you for a long time. The oysters and mussels farmed in the Etang de Thau are possibly the finest tasting in the world, and there are plenty of little restaurants and cafes along the seafront in which you can form an educated opinion! The town is wonderfully understated, with only small shops and restaurants in which to eat, and the quality of restaurant is absolutely fantastic. The Noilly-Prat wine is common throughout Marseillan, produced locally, and providing the ideal accompaniment to local dishes, there is no doubt that plenty will be enjoyed from a Marseillan villa!

Wandering the streets of Marseillan, there are many things that you must not miss. The ancient covered market halls are a real highlight of the town, and the Church of Saint John the Baptist is certainly endearing. However, the biggest attraction in Marseillan occurs on the 16th August each year, when the Capelet festival takes over the streets. Capelet is fantastic fun, and the most ancient tradition in Marseillan. Two hats are placed on the end of a slippery pole, and contestants must walk out across the harbour and try to retrieve the hats. Of course, the larger the fall, the larger the cheer from the baying crowd!

The nearby Canal du Midi is an activity haven, allowing excellent fishing, wonderfully peaceful canoeing and some of the most enchanting routes for walking, cycling and riding in the Herault region. The many ancient monuments of Herault are all within easy reach of a Marseillan property rental too, including the amazing Roman monuments of Nimes.

Travel to Marseillan, France

If London is not a suitable departure point, there are plenty of options for flights to Carcassonne and Nimes, both of which are well within an hours drive. A hire car is by no means essential when you take a Marseillan holiday villa, but if you would like to explore all the attractions of Herault and Languedoc-Roussillon, it is made much easier by having the use of a car.

It was beautifully clean. The kitchen is well equipped but doesn't have a washing machine or dishwasher. The beds were comfortable. It is in the centre of the town but is very quite, although parking is a bit tricky and you may have to park a few minutes walk away. We would definitely stay here again.

The apartment is lovely and has all the conveniences of home and so many unexpected extras. It is tastefully decorated with a real French feel to it. This made our stay so enjoyable. Marseillan is a delightful town with lovely inexpensive restaurants and plenty to see and do. We will be back.

Great views towards Sete over the Bassin de Thau from extensive balcony. No washing machine in apartment, but two new general use machines in property garage. Secure parking not included in rental, however plenty of street parking available in immediate vicinty of property. Easy walking to all that Marsellian has to offer, a very pleasant stay in a well appointed property. Our thanks to Virginie.
