The Waterside, by the Marseillan waters-edge, is a gorgeous, stylish, architect-designed property with air conditioning on the waterfront, now taking bookings for winter and 2019. Newly converted from an old Marseillan wine warehouse it enjoys stunning views across the marina and port from the sunny south- facing terrace.
The property has 2 bedrooms (a good double and large twin). If you like the sun this is the property to book as there is a large terrace (as in the pictures) which faces the south and gets sun from morning until sun down in the evening, for dining/sunning and overlooking Marseillan old port and boat marina it is ideal for a couple or family.
Watch people strolling along the waterside from the terrace, see the yachts and barges come and go or take a stroll around the corner to the many portside cafes and restaurants.
The terrace gets the sun until the sun goes down and has a table for dining with 4 chairs and two lounging chairs. The views across the waterside constantly stun.
This attractive, new property has a spacious living, dining and kitchen area:
Air conditioning included - a must for June, July, August and September.
New large bathroom with relaxing bath and shower over!
Fridge with freezer and washing machine.
Satellite TV. Weather can affect reception sometimes.

Just a few minutes walk away from the port is a small local beach.
By the beach there is a water sports area where you can paddle board, kayak or learn to wind surf!
If holidaying with small children there is a lovely park by the beach with brick BBQ s for all to use.
Just past the park and local beach is a new selection of stylish but simple waterside restaurants serving smoked moules, oysters and wine.
Marseillan is a lovely port and 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 short walk).
Travel a little further afield and you can visit the old port of Sete, historical Pezenas, Carcassonne, Aigues Mortes, riverside villages, mountains, gorges and sweet villages such as Bouzigues aptly named for a bouzy, fishy lunch.
Getting to Marseillan is easy fly to 4 airports within driving distance nearest is Beziers (20 mins drive), Montpellier (50 mins drive), Nimes (60 minutes drive) and Carcassonne (about 75 mins drive). UK flights are from Luton, Stansted, Liverpool, Manchester, Bristol, East Midlands, Edinburgh and more (depending on time of year). Also you can get a Eurostar train from London.
