About Enzo Ascenzi

I am an Italian Veterinary Surgeon working in Northern Ireland. Born and bred Italian, and I worked on small animals in Italy for a short time before moving to Kenya (Amboseli National Park) where I deepened my knowledge on behaviour of African wildlife, especially wild cats and elephants. I then moved to England where I worked for the Department of Agriculture before making my last move to Northern Ireland were I also work for the Department of Agriculture. Here I met my partner Katherine who is Irish and she introduced me to the Languedoc a few years ago. Since then I never looked back and last year we decided to buy a property there. I love the local culture, that reminds me a lot about Italy, and attitude. I love the food, the wines and, most of all, the lifestyle.

Enzo Ascenzi purchased this house in 2014

Why Enzo Ascenzi chose Marseillan

The house is really charming and traditional. We loved it from the first viewing and we are very happy about it. It is located in one of the traditional narrow streets which are characteristic of the old Marseillan town centre. Our plan is to keep it as traditional as possible, avoiding excess of modernity.

wonderful town house

  • 5 of 5

we loved our holiday here, everything you could wish for was there, the house itself was charming, the roof terrace much larger then we thought, location was brilliant, we could not fault it at all, the one and only negative was we arrived early hours of the morning all shops were closed it would of been nice to have had a bottle of milk or water left in fridge, but no way would it stop us using this house or recommending it, brilliant

A fabulous rental in a fabulous town.

  • 5 of 5

3rd visit to Marseillan and best rental yet.

Lovely quiet street, traditional house with the terrace being the best bit.

We spent most of our time on the terrace when we weren’t at the beach or elsewhere. It is very private and, although the stairs are tricky for carrying food and drink, eating outside on the private terrace was fabolous.

The property has all you need and with air conditioning and shutters it is easy to regulate any noise or heat.

Super little house in good quiet location

  • 4 of 5

The house was charming; very clean, well equipped and had a super comfy bed! Lovely new towels, tea towels and bed linen. The shutters kept the heat and light out of the bedroom at night, so we slept very well. The roof terrace was great, although the stairs were a bit perilous, to be navigated with care, and there wasn’t much of a view. It was lovely for a glass of wine at night or lunch in the shade. Lots of restaurants to choose from, and super bakery and deli close by, in walking distance, as well as a large supermarket a few minutes drive away. It’s handy for walks by the lagoon, the Canal du Midi, beaches at Marseillan Plage, and even a trip to the Camargue. Great house for two people.

An ideal holiday home in a 'normal' village.

  • 4 of 5

Small but it had everything we needed. The shutters were a novelty and protected us from a thunderstorm which roared most of the night - we heard nothing! There were some interesting touches, the mirror in the bathroom and the crochet curtains in the bedroom.

The shower was very efficient but we had a few accidents/leaks through the plastic curtains!

It was comfortable and clean and an excellent base when exploring the area.
