The space

Albatross Villa "La Petite Maison"

Although from the outside the house appears to be very small you will find once you step over the threshold that you will feel somewhat like Alice in Wonderland as the house gets bigger once you are inside. Like a lot of the houses in the Center Ville the outside is often a bit of an illusion and you are almost always pleasantly supprised.

We have installed a Mitsubishi Air Conditioning /Heating System on each floor to add to your comfort throughout the changing seasons.

The Roof-Top Terrace designed by Swedish Architect, David Gölen is the perfect place to chill out in the shade of the specially designed UV Protection sail. If you prefer to sunbathe with a view over the rooftops of Marseillan Ville lay on loungers on the raised deck area.

A Weber Gas BBQ has been installed to cook your evening meals and if you feel like Pizza there is a Pizza stone to try your culinary skills on.

In the kitchen there is a gas stove with an electric oven beneath.
We have w-ifi in the house from SFR

We welcome you to share the experience by visiting our new home in the South of France. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us .

Best Regards,

Anita & Janne

"Marseillan is like St Tropez before Bardot. Staggeringly pretty, one of the most unspoiled ports in France."

Sunday Times, London

Can you imagine yourself taking breakfast whilst sat on the rooftop of a centuries old petite maison du village or better still enjoying a glass of wine at the end of a day that was filled with as much or little activities as you would like? …. Be it a Romantic Getaway for Two or a Break away from Routine for the family, whatever it is, we can help make it happen in our little house set in the heart of Marseillan Village. La Petite Maison sits in a maze of narrow streets amongst a mixture of restored and unrestored, back to back, mainly 3 storey, very old, terraced houses, many origionally dateing back to the 16th and 17th Century's. If you want character and authenticity then you will find it in an abundance.

Guest access

You can use everything in the house.

Interaction with guests

We do not live in France but have an excellent housekeeper called Carolle and we are always available via internet or telephone.

Other things to note

Great Local wines and food. Many festivals in the summer which should not be missed. Fantastic Beaches to enjoy. Marseillan has it all! Please have a look on this blog.

Beautiful three storey house in the middle of an old fishing village with added luxury of a secret roof terrace.

This is authentic French living. Great character village house. Close to the centre of the village with all you need and 5 minute walk to the port and seaside restaurants. You can spend hours on the roof top deckk, so relaxing. Jane has a new beautiful B&B just around the corner if you are looking for something upscale!

Had a great stay at the villa. Roof top terrace is wonderful - even though it was windy during our stay. Janne met us the day we arrived and told us all we needed too know. Villa is very well equipped with all the incidentals you might need. 2 en-suites - perfect No natural light in downstairs bedroom as mentioned in previous review - didn't bother me - very cosy with very comfy bed. Location is excellent - minutes from the centre of the village. Highly recommended - but may be difficult if you have mobility issue as 2 flight of stairs to kitchen + another spiral stairway to access terrace. No trouble parking a few minutes away.

Janne was there to meet us and was very friendly. He was working locally and was very responsive to emails and messages. The cheese and wine in the villa were also very welcome! We loved the roof terrace. The location was great - literally a minute's walk away from the main square, but also very quiet. We were also able to park within a couple of minutes of the villa. Marsellian is a lovely village and we plan to return!

We are an international family, Janne from Sweden and myself from New Zealand. We both enjoy travelling and meeting people, eating good food and wines and our family and friends. As we both love to cook the only problem can be who is the boss in the kitchen! We met in New Zealand in 2004 when Janne was sailing around the world with his friend Carl on their yacht S/Y Albatross, which took them three years to complete. Since then we have lived in Sweden and after a holiday in Marseillan two years ago we bought our little pearl of a house.
