About Clare and Charlie Calderwood
We (Charlie and Clare) are an English couple and we spend our summer months in our lovely family villa in the charming and historic town of Marseillan. We are cycling, kayaking and outdoor enthusiasts and can often be found paddling down the local rivers, cycling through the pituresque vineyards and surrounding countryside, or simply relaxing with friends and family on the beautiful golden beaches or at one of the many portside restaurants. We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful house.
Clare and Charlie Calderwood purchased this Apartment in 2002

Lovely comfortable apartment with every facility and walking distance to the port
We three friends spent two weeks in June 2018 in this Marseillan apartment and had a wonderful holiday, thanks to owners Clare and Charlie who were so friendly and helpful but never intrusive. The apartment was a few minutes’ walk from Marseillan town and port and we were also able to enjoy visits to nearby towns and villages such as Agde, Pézenas and of course Marseillan beach, which was just a few miles away. Our ground floor apartment with access to the garden was spotless, spacious and beautifully furnished with everything provided including dishwasher, washing machine, English TV and even items for the beach – in fact nothing was missing. We would certainly have no hesitation in visiting again.Thank you Clare and Charlie for making our holiday so enjoyable. Frank, Joan and Kathleen, Bletchingley, Surrey
We have recently enjoyed a wonderful stay in this beautiful 'home from home' apartment. The apartment is perfect...absolutely everything you could possibly need for a thoroughly enjoyable stay, including Wifi and British television. There is an outdoor table and chairs to enjoy the sunshine and a nice glass of wine in the evening!
The apartment is within easy walking distance of Marseillan's enchanting port and excellent bars and restaurants. Marseillan Plage is a short drive away, which has a lovely sandy beach and more bars and restaurants.
Clare and Charlie were the perfect hosts, so nice and so helpful...really going above and beyond to make our stay the best it could possibly be, without being obtrusive.
We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this as an excellent place to stay for a holiday in Marseillan!
Wonderful relaxing break in beautiful apartment
We had such a wonderful time, eating and relaxing outside on the sunny patio garden. So close to walk to the lovely village with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants, and near the beach too. Lots to do, but peaceful enough not to need to either and the apartment was immaculate. Clare and Charlie are wonderful hosts, very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. On hand to help with anything, but at a discrete distance. A very friendly unspoilt place on the coast, we will definitely be returning!
A holiday in Marseillan
We stayed at this property for two weeks in August. This is a delightful apartment, extremely clean and well maintained and very well equipped. The owners provided a warm welcome and good instructions and information even though, on this occasion,
they could not be there to greet us themselves. Clare and Charlie arrived during our second week and are a friendly but not in any way intrusive couple, allowing their guests privacy. There is a broad range of equipment provided in the apartment which would benefit anyone flying to the location. The apartment is only a few minutes walk to the pretty port town of Marseillan, the cycle paths, and the Etang du Bassin. The beaches are clean and easily accessible. The property is also ideally situated for longer trips out to explore this wonderful part of France. We would recommend visits to Beziers, Pezenas, Sete and other smaller villages in the location. Alternatively, relaxing in/outside the apartment is a real pleasure.
Thank you Clare and Charlie for providing such a great holiday home!

A real gem !
We had a wonderful 2 weeks in the apartment -joined for a week by our 2 sons who flew to Beziers ( 20 min drive and also bus from airport into Marseillan ). The apartment is spotlessly clean , the bedrooms really spacious with plenty of storage , and the kitchen modern and really well equipped with everything you could need -we cooked in for half the time .English TV channels so we could watch Wimbledon ! There is a great laundry room and storage room where we were able to store golf clubs . There is a large Carrefour for large shops only 10 minute drive away .
Charlie and Clare are fantastic hosts , with a warm welcome when we arrived and were available provide any information needed for local sightseeing and eating out.
We played golf 4 times at Beziers and Cap D'Agde -good inexpensive holiday golf .There is a 'golf pass' for the area which can be purchased at each local club for an overall reduction on green fees. We also visited the Noilly Prat distillery -highly recommended - toured the oyster fields with a boat trip from the harbour, and had a tour of' ' Jean De Mas ' the Oyster Farmer who provided a plate of oysters on the sun deck overlooking the Etang after the tour . Our sons did some wake boarding and the beaches are an easy drive away.
Marseillan itself ,only 5 minutes walk away is a real hidden gem. There are weekly markets , and a selection of traiteurs , boucheries and boulangeries accesible on foot each morning . In the evening the main harbour has a wonderful selection of restaurants to eat out at by the water after a game of Boules en route ! We are hoping to return to this bit of France as there was so much else that we didn't manage to do
We recently returned from a week's stay in Marseillan and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were a party of 2 adults and 2 small children. The apartment was spacious enough for us all and everything we could possibly have needed was provided. The kitchen in particular has everything provided and it was quite possible to cook a full meal - something that is certainly not the case in most rented holiday properties. The location is super and a few minutes walks takes you into the centre of Marseillan and the small port. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from and it's the location of the Tuesday market which we enjoyed a walk round.
The owners, Clare & Charlie, were very friendly and most welcoming. For sure we shall return!
