Marseillan property

Property for sale (houses and apartments) in or near to Montpellier, Languedoc

 

Marseillan is changing fast, from sleepy traditional fishing port to one of Languedoc's chicest places to buy a house. The Marseillan property market has grown substantially in recent years, with up-market developers lifting the profile of the town with their Rive Gauche development, and many other houses being 'done up' by the bourgeoisie of northern France, the UK, Ireland and northern Europe. The centre of Marseillan still retains the old houses that make Languedoc property so desired - with plenty of Maisons de Vigneron, Maisons de Maitres and smaller Maisons de Village for sale.

The real hotspot for Marseillan property, however, is along either side of the port. This is where property in Marseillan is most expensive, as many houses for sale in this part of Marseillan sport views of the Etang and port. They also offer easy access to the new restaurants, wine bars and cafés that have sprouted up along Marseillan's port. (You can find great Marseillan restaurants in our Restaurant Reviews section.)

 

Marseillan sits on the western side of the Etang de Thau, a giant sea-water lagoon that also hosts the port of Mèze (a smaller, slightly less up-market version of Marseillan) and Bouzigues (where France's best oysters are harvested). So wonderful beaches are only 10 minutes' drive away (Marseillan Plage, Robinson Plage, Cap d'Agde nudist beaches), Béziers is 20 minutes away, with its increasingly good shops and restaurants, and mighty Montpellier is only about 40 minutes' drive north.

 

Marseillan property: Prices & property types

 

In terms of prices, Marseillan property is slightly more expensive than the norm. A fully-serviced apartment overlooking the Etang and sea at a property development such as Rive Gauche will put you back at least €250,000, but for the same money, and if you're feeling adventurous, you could buy a large Maison de Village in Marseillan. These tend to be on three floors - with a garage on the first (which you can always convert, or partially convert), living spaces on the first floor, and an empty attic space on the second, which offers huge potential for adding further bedrooms.

 

Finding houses for sale in Marseillan with gardens or any type of outside space can be tricky. Few centre-village houses in Languedoc have much outside space to speak of, and councils are cracking down on the building of terraces. If you're looking for Marseillan property with some sort of terrace or garden, then you might want to look further out of the centre of the village, where houses are more modern and more likely to have gardens. bear in mind, however, that Marseillan property further from the centre will offer less character and convenience.

 

Also bear in mind that the coastal areas of Languedoc are less pretty than the areas further inland, where the terrain starts to undulate and is less built up with roads, shopping centres and industrial zones. Marseillan is certainly very pretty, and looks like it will only get prettier, as more money flows into the town, but beyond it, much of the surrounding areas won't offer the unspoilt countryside you'd get just north of Pezenas, say.
