A very special home by the waterfront - now with an extra bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor, for guests who prefer living on one level.

Kinvara is the home of the Marseillan sunrise - every morning the dawn brings a new combination of colours to the lagoon outside your front door.


Silver and gold, peach and cream, red velvet or shimmering orange. These are the colours of dawn over Kinvara.


When the sun rises above the Mont St Clair across the bay and the early morning light catches the shimmering wake of a fishing boat slipping across the waters, the dawn chorus announces another special day in Marseillan.

With its patios close by the banks of the Port Tabarka, a comfortable living room, well equipped kitchen, three good bedrooms and two bathrooms, Kinvara is the end of terrace house by the water that makes a perfect Marseillan home at any time of the year.

Now boasting a new master bedroom and bathroom/wc (featuring a proper bathtub with shower under the skylight) on the ground floor, this is fast becoming a favourite home for couples wanting to enjoy the South of France lifestyle - without having to use the stairs!


And with the other two bedrooms and a shower room and wc on the first floor, two couples travelling together can each have their own space.

The French windows of the living room open to the south-facing year-round sun-trap terrace.

The extra outdoor "room" open to the summer skies of Languedoc.

High walls and a pergola for privacy outside, this terrace has a table seating for 4 for sharing breakfast croissants and coffee under clear blue skies, or perhaps enjoying an early evening aperitif al fresco watching the swallows and house martins swoop around the eaves.

Sit outside with a good book and your holiday shades to hand whilst southerly sunshine streams into the house.

This main terrace is very much an extra room, perfect family space from early spring until late late in the year.

For several winters past the sunshine on Christmas Day has made a south-facing terrace in Port Tabarka a very special place to enjoy Christmas lunch, before an afternoon mooch along the beach down at Marseillan Plage. Only saving your sleeves and jackets for when the sun goes down and the chill winter evening entices you out or a cup of hot milled wine and roasted chestnuts at the evening market in the village.

In the other direction, the front door opens out to the driveway leading to the port itself, where day-boats gently bob and sway, and the waterfront park and plagette.

In front of the house, is a shaded porch and a second terrace where you may either park your car, or decide to sit outside and enjoy the view from the bench

Tabarka's resident ducks may decide to join you, to protect their ducklings in the shade.


Or you may close your eyes, pour a glass of Noilly Prat Ambre and take a good book and simply listen to the birdsong, swallows, gulls and those ducks from a comfortable seat behind the strong walls of the other south-facing patio...

Inside is a very well fitted-out lounge and dining area. Comfortable sofa and chairs and a dedicated dining space, in front of the kitchen counter.

 The dining table is designed to seat four, but expands to accommodate 6 people when required. 

The kitchen is cleverly organised with fridge, dishwasher, oven, hob and microwave, food mixer, plunge cafetiere and lots of pots, pans, plates dishes and glassware in the kitchen itself and the clever storage units in the dining area..

A door behind the kitchen leads to the new ground floor suite with a washing machine in the bathroom and a double bedroom overlooking the front patio. This extra space turns a 2 bedroom home into a 3 bedroom house.

TV, with international channels, the wifi hub and music system also to be found in the main living room.

In the winter you will appreciate the remote controlled electric fire, for turning up the heat without leaving your comfy chair.

Up the wooden stairs to two double bedrooms and a shower room.

The main bedroom has wide double bed and plenty of drawers and space for your clothes.

The second room has another double bed.


The view from the back bedroom is fabulous, looking out across the park and over the waters, beyond the boats in the port and the harbour wall to the lagoon and the silhouette of the headlands of Sète, gateway to the Mediterranean itself.

Gulls swoop and ducks gather, the oystermen head out to the lagoon to check their crop, Marseillan fisherwomen land their morning catch on the quays outside your window, before heading to their stall in the village market, and drying their nets in the field by the water.

The house is in one of Marseillan's most sought-after locations. Close enough to the centre of things, yet a space apart for getting away from it all.

Outdoor types will love the park opposite the house.

Here are plenty of activities for the young and energetic, a basketball court and skatepark, picnic areas and the Kithau kite-surf and watersports centre with its zipwire and cafe.

For those in search of more sedentary diversions, then the nearest winery is around 90 metres from your front door.

Keep walking along the lagoon road and within a couple of minutes you will find yourself at the fishermen's shacks serving a light lunch of 6 oysters and a glass of wine for just 6 euros. 2 minutes in the other direction and the main pleasure port is lined with a dozen great places to dine.

And you are still only a gentle 5 minute wander into the village itself with its bustling Tuesday morning market, enviable choice of restaurants and excellent shopping.

In peak summertime, the concerts, sports and celebrations in the main port are all walking distance away, yet you come home to a gentle residential quarter, where every bonsoir and bonne nuit brings the promise of tomorrow's special sunrise.
