The property is located in a residential area on the edge of the charming, Mediterranean harbour town of Marseillan.
Marseillan is one of the few remaining unspoilt small harbour towns of the Western Mediterranean and is between Béziers and Montpellier.
2 minutes drive to the centre of the town. There are plenty of shops to browse and choose between; excellent bread, local fruit and vegetables, and two supermarkets. Local growers and fishermen have stalls in the covered market, open three days a week, and on Tuesdays a typical open market sets up in the squares and streets of the centre. In high summer there is an evening Friday craft market.
Eating out is easy: there are over a dozen restaurants, at all prices, along the port and in the centre of town. Try Chez Philippe's 'cuisine gorgée de soleil' : a must for lovers of serious and innovative food. It was awarded a 'coup de cœur' from France's main foodie magazine, Saveurs.
3 minutes drive to lovely Mediterranean beaches with large choice of restaurants, café bars and beach shops.
Along the quayside of the main port, sit in a waterside brasserie, watch the boats come and go, and wonder how they do such a three-course lunch for such a low price.
And when you have tried all they have to offer, take a drive to the waterfronts of Mèze or Bouzigues, or up to Sète, to the open beach, or the restaurants along the main canal, and taste some more...There's a good choice of take-away food: pizzas and pasta; fresh roast chickens and beef from the butcher; and elegant dishes from a traîteur.
Marseillan is well-known for its Picpoul de Pinet white wine: ideal with shellfish. The Languedoc is the world's largest vineyard.
Just to the other side of the house is the Port des Pêcheurs, and beyond that a newly-opened park and children's play area.
The Étang de Thau is alive with boats - and full of oysters and mussels. If you bring a boat, there's a slipway just by. You can take short cruises across the étang to the oyster and mussel beds on the Etoile de Thau, or go to Sète or Cap d'Agde. Boats can be hired for the day or week: sailing boats in Marseillan, and motor boats along the coast: the nearest is at Marseillan Plage.
The beautiful Canal du Midi, listed as a world heritage site by UNESCO, starts here. It stretches for 240 kilometres, for much of the way under huge sheltering plane trees. The canal path is ideal for walking or cycling on a hot summer day.
Marseillan is on the Etang du Thau, which has a tradition for oyster and mussel farming, providing the area with a rich source for food and wealth. It is possible to take a short tour of the oyster and mussel beds.
The local produce of this area goes hand in hand with the regional wine produced. Try some in one of the many good restaurants in Marseillan - or buy some to prepare back at the house.
Marseillan is also where the Canal du Midi meets the Mediterranean. The canal du Midi is great for walking in the shade of the riverside trees, cycling, fishing and canoeing. You can hire boats for day trips, stopping at many tucked away restaurants along the way.
The surrounding area:
The Languedoc is the largest wine producing area of France with a great number of wines awarded AOC status. Why not visit some of the very hospitable vineyards and taste some of the local produce or to gain more insight into the wine producing methods.
In addition you are 10 minutes drive to the lively seaside town of Cap d'Agde, which has: Beach Bars, Windsurfing, Sailing and Motor Boats, Naturist Area (away from the main beaches), Aqualand Water Park, 18 Hole Golf Course, Boat trips, Tennis courts, Café Bars and Restaurants, Night Clubs.
Why not also visit the medieval city of Carcassonne which is only an hour's drive away. In this beautiful fortified city you can choose to soak up the history by taking a guided walk, strolling freely, or soak up the local wine sitting al fresco enjoying the ambiance.
« We have had a fabulous time at Villa Perdrix!
Sun, pool and relaxation (and of course some lovely wines!) What more could we ask for.
The villa was spotless and the outside area absolutely perfect for our needs.
This was a lovely family holiday and has come to an end far too quickly.
Josephine and Roland were incredibly helpful and accommodating. Wishing you the best of success! p.s. we will be back!! » The Brown and Kelsey family
« We have had a good time at your villa; it was very well equipped and suited our fairly large party comfortably. The pool was highlight - well enjoyed by everyone at every opportunity (the weather was fine throughout our stay).
The location allowed us to explore Marseilles, Agde and Sete with ease (all well worth a visit, despite being a little busy!) and if you have a day spare, a trip to the medieval city of Carcassonne or the Pont-du-Gard (Nimes) is a must! Thanks! » The McAlister and Fox family
« We have had a great week, loved the pool and getting to know the area.
The villa couldn't have been better equipped and there was everything we needed.
Thank you very much. » Susie, John, Hugo, Freddie and Fergus
« We had a lovely stay. Very comfortable villa and quiet nights.... » Fam.Blafard. Vienna. Austria.
« Josephine and Roland, Another lovely stay at your villa. It was so nice to see you both again.
Very hot all the time so the pool was very nice to cool off. We enjoyed every minute of our stay!
Thanks and best wishes » John and Sheila (Hepburn)
« We have had a great time at Villa Perdrix. The children loved the pool and we could not keep them out of it. The weather was great, every day was sunny but not too hot.
There are lots of restaurants about at Cap d'agde, Marseilles and Sete.
Can recommend a boat trip on the Canal Midi and the river beach and swimming at Pont du Diable. In the garden we have seen lizards and bats so don't be scared! Hope you have as great a time as we have. »
« Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely house. Everything was here that we needed and the weather was sunny and hot. The town is so peaceful, lets hope it stays that way and keep the tourists away! The pool was superb. Thank you. » John, Joanne & Siobhan Bage, Sean Bonner
« We had a great stay and a wonderful holiday. » U Eder-Blafard, Vienna
