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.

The Neighborhood

The local town people are very friendly and we have lovely neighbours. The house is a few minutes walk away to the Bakery, Butchers and the Local shop,which sells everything from Eggs to Wine! One of the great advantages of living in the center of town is that everything is closeby.

Getting around

The bus stop is 5 minutes walk away, next to the harbour were you can take a bus journey to Marseillan Plage - a little like Benidorm with lots of people, inexpensive food & drinks ...Karaoke Bars and even a Fairground!

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!

  • Vi hade en mycket bra kommunikation med Janne o Anita. De svarade snabbt på alla frågor vi hade både före och under vår vistelse som var fantastisk. Allt fungerade utmärkt och de har tänkt på allt för att gästerna skall ha det bekvämt och mysigt. Köket var välutrustat med allt husgeråd man behöver och mer därtill. Sköna sängar med fräscht sänglinne. Terassen är verkligen jättemysig och ger en känsla av att befinna sig på ett lyxigt båtdäck. Istället för hav blickar man ut över taken i Marseillan vilket är en annan stark upplevelse. Vid skymning fylls luften av svalor som seglar och dyker efter insekter. Plötsligt drar de bort och luften är tom igen.
    Befolkningen i byn hälsar vänligt och man känner sig snabbt hemma. Det finns flera resturanger som håller hög klass till bra (website hidden) åt mycket gott. Den som gillar ostron är på rätt ställe. Ostronodlingarna ligger (website hidden) köpte ostron direkt från odlare som var outstanding
    Stranden / stränderna är 5 km bort med blått klart vatten där vi frusna nordbor tinade upp oss i solen o badade i. Det går att åka buss,cykla el ta egen (website hidden) besökte vingårdar, kloster, medeltida byar, marknader (website hidden) märkte att det finns oändligt mycket mer att upptäcka i (website hidden) kommer definitivt tillbaka och kan varmt rekommendera Janne o Anitas hus

  • My wife and 6 yo daughter have just spent a month in Janne and Anita"s house in Marseillan. Firstly the hosts were terrific to deal with. Although we have not met them in person they were in contact regularly making sure all was well with our stay. The house is exactly as described. We found it very comfortable and very quickly felt at home. They have done a great job renovating a very old house in the middle of the village. It looks ( and is) tiny from the outside but is quite roomy on the inside. The kitchen had everything we needed and being in the middle of summer the roof top terrace was fantastic . There is no parking at the house but we parked in a free car park about a 5 or 6 min walk.
    Marseillan has some great eating places and plenty of places to visit in the area. We loved the Minervois wines and had some great times hunting down small wineries and wines'
    We were told Marseillan is the oldest village in France
    Not sure if that's right but a month in the centre of this beautiful village was an unforgettable experience .
    Thanks so much Janne and Anita

  • Janne and Anita's house is the perfect French village house you want to stay in when visiting the south of France. There was a bottle of wine and essentials at the house when we arrived late in the evening so we didn't have to rush out until the next morning for groceries. Marseillan is a good village to be based in and there are numerous places nearby to visit. We will definitely stay here the next time we are visiting that area.

  • Ne vous fiez pas à la photo, la maison est plus grande qu'il n'y parait.
    Au calme dans une petite impasse, à deux pas des commerces et 5 mn à pied du charmant petit port et de l'étang de Thau, la maison est typique du style du vieux Marseillan : 3 niveaux plus une terrasse sur le toit très agréable pour y prendre les repas . L'intérieur a entièrement été rénové avec goût en préservant le cachet ancien de la maison.
    Idéal pour un séjour en oubliant la voiture. Les rues de la vielle ville sont très étroites, garez votre voiture dans une rue avoisinante (nous n'avons eu aucun problème 3eme semaine d'août) et déplacez vous à pied ou en vélo. Le canal du midi commence ici, les plages sont à 15-20 min en vélo.

    Une semaine très agréable!

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.
