About this listing
Maison de Tamaris is a charming single-story holiday home, located in a closed vacation residence with pool and Tennis court in the small Southern French town of Marseillan, only 10 mins from the beautiful Mediterranean beaches of Marseillan-Plage.
Our holiday home Maison de Tamaris is part of the gated vacation community "Clos de Tamaris" and is located directly at the Etang de Thau, a lagoon that connects the small town of Marseillan with the Mediterranean Sea. Only a short walk from the historical town center of Marseillan, this secured holiday community is an oasis in a beautiful calm and green environment with no through-traffic (a big car park is attached to the residential part of the community). The charming single-story house is composed of a cozy living room combined with a small kitchen, one big bed room, a small bathroom with shower & WC and a sun terrace/patio in front of the house. It's ideal for a couple and cannot accommodate more than two people.
The community offers a big swimming pool, a tennis court and a Petanque playing ground which can be used by all guests. Guests will also have a guaranteed, numbered parking space in the community car park.
Marseillan is a small Southern French town with about 8000 inhabitants and is situated between Sète and Agde on the shores of the Bassin (or Etang) de Thau, one of the many lagoons on the Languedoc coast that are connected with the Mediterranean Sea. Marseillan was founded by Greek sailors more than 2000 years ago. The picturesque town has a small fishing harbor and marina, a historic town center with small medieval alleyways and is surrounded by vineyards. The Mediterranean shores with their 12 km long sandy beaches between Marseillan-Plage and the harbor town Sète are only a 10 minute car drive away.
Nearby airports are Montpellier (45 km) and Beziers-Vias (22 km) which are frequented regularly by airlines as Ryanair, Easyjet, Air France and British Airways. Airport shuttles and/or local trains bring you directly to Marseillan or to Marseillan-Plage from where a bus goes to Marseillan town center. There is a bus stop directly at the community gates. This bus goes to the beaches as well. You can also arrive by car via the A9 (exit Adge if you come from Beziers/Barcelona, exit Sète if you come from Montpellier/Lyon).
Other Things to Note
Garden furniture (table, chairs, sun-chairs) and a barbecue are at the disposal of our guests.
The community has Internet access through a hotspot with SFR Wifi FON for which a pass can be purchased online (free for SFR clients).
You can contact us in English, French & German.
Welcomed by Bettina's friend, Cathy, who did an excellent job of showing me around and also provided some valuable local knowledge.
The house itself, although small, was ideal for a couple as indicated in the advert and had all the facilities one could need. Outside there is a useful patio area complete with loungers and BBQ. It sits within an excellent gated community which has a pool that opens 9am-9pm and also a tennis court & Boules. Les Clos De Tamaris is a short walk into Marseillan village and proved to be a great base for exploring the town and the wider area. I can happily recommend both Bettina's house and Marseillan itself for a wonderful holiday.
