Sailing, surfing, tennis… Marseillan holiday guests have many options. Kids will love the large playground just a 5-minute walk away from the apartment, while the town itself is situated on Étang de Thau, an 18 km long lagoon preceded by the long, sandy beaches of the Mediterranean coast (Plage de Marseillan). You get there by car, bike (on an almost continuous bike path) or by bus. In town you have restaurants and bars within walking distance; the nearest supermarket is 2 km away.
This region has a plethora of sights on offer, one of the main ones being the city of Sète, located on a narrow tongue of land between the Mediterranean Sea and the Étang de Thau lagoon, about 30 minutes from the flat. Virtually surrounded by water, Sète is also referred to as the "Little Venice of Languedoc" and boats Mediterranean-style houses with a strong Italian accent.
