Marseillan – not to be confused with Marseille – is a port in the South of France with protected heritage status, and when you visit, you’ll see why it is so revered. The commune sits on an island in the Etang de Thau, and is the location of holiday homes for numerous well-off French families who want to holiday somewhere chic and refined. In short, it is an excellent place to come for a holiday if you want that classic French break full of excellent cafes, fine wine, and tree-lined avenues.
This excellent country house is so much more than just four walls and a roof; with a garden that measures more than 2,000 square metres (21,527.82 sq ft), and an outdoor sun terrace with dining and sunbathing facilities, it’s a perfect holiday accommodation. By car, you’re just ten minutes’ drive through sumptuous countryside from the beach, and also from a cinema, bowling alley, and discotheque. Visit in August and you’ll be able to take in the Feria de Beziers, a horse-riding festival of note; while if you visit at any other time you can avail the equine facilities at Beziers yourself. It’s an ideal spot if you’re travelling with a baby, too; the owners offer any and all items for baby care.
