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.

As we booked our trip very last minute Geraldine was very quick with confirming our reservation and sending us the info and also calling to check we were ok with everything - thank you Geraldine for the lovely tip of the new wine bar which we loved. We absolutely fell in love with Marseillan - I cannot recommend the village, the port, the wine, the food, the beaches enough... we absolutely loved all of it and we will be back.

The location was great, only 100 yards around the corner from the market square, situated amongst the local community in the heart of the town. All the shops, bars and restaurants and stunning marina were all within walking distance from the property as stated in the description. We were never short of things to do and places to visit. Lots of markets and fairs going on during the week, cycling to the beach and visiting the neighbouring town of Sete as well as relaxing in the local bars and restaurants. Also enjoying the fabulous food on offer from the restaurants and eateries in the square. Our favourite being the delicatessen situated next to the church where we could experience great service, fantastic fresh food and relax with a glass of wine whilst watching the world go by. We were able to contact the owner, Martin, easily and at short notice via telephone and email and also his local representative who was available to sort out any problems that occurred during our stay. We have been very impressed with the service and customer care they have provided, being only too happy to help. Marseillan is a beautiful place and the people are very warm, welcoming and friendly. We would highly recommend this property to our friends and family as a great place to stay, with everything you need at your fingertips. It has been like home from home for us and we will definitely return in the future.

Just a short walk from the historic port and Marseillan village. A beautiful apartment & very comfortable, home from home and is well equipped to a high standard. It is an open planned layout, has a fully fitted kitchen with fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, hob & oven and a microwave. The dinning area and lounge are fitted with TV/music player, leading out through patio doors onto a beautiful patio and a small garden with sun loungers, seating with low table, outside table & chairs with parosol. The garden is a real sun trap and for those wanting to keep an eye on the temperature, there is an outside temperature gauge. The garden is also equipped with a BBQ. The bedrooms are spacious with plenty of storage space. Bathroom has a bath & shower, separate toilet across the hallway. All bed linen & towels are supplied. A private secure car parking space is located to the back of the property. There is plenty to do in and around the area, depending on how active you want to make your stay. There are an abundance of restaurants around the port & also in the village, there is a cuisine for everyone from pizza to fish restaurants. We have been told that it is best to make reservations during July/August. With the apartment located where it is, a short walk (10mins) from the port takes you where the Oysters & Mussels are landed.
