"The Look Out" Modern apartment with lagoon views: only 200 yards from the waterfront, and a comfortable walk to the port and village itself.
2 bedrooms; 1 bath, 1 wc. Sleeps 4
2 chambres, 1sdb/wc, 4 couchages
This is a two-bedroom apartment between the village and the waterfront.
Named for the Vigier or Look-Out on the masts of the pirate ships that once found safe haven in Marseillan, the appartment has its own vantage point for gazing across at the sails of today's ships plying the waters of the lagoon, and the Med beyond.
From the dining terrace, look over evergreen trees and terracotta rooftops to the silver waters of the Etang de Thau.
Spot the dinghies from Les Glenans sailing school by the lighthouse setting out across the bay, toast the fishing boats returning from the oyster beds and raise a glass to the white holiday boats plying the maritime waters between the Canal du Midi and the Canal Rhone-Sete.
Le Vigier is a modern purpose-built appartment designed for making the most of Marseillan.
The bright living room, with its own dining space, comfortable sofa and TV , opens out onto the terrace and segues into a stylish new kitchen - which even boasts a dishwasher to give you more time to gaze at the moon over a late night digestif.

Save the wheels for another day's adventure, exploring neighbouring ports and villages or discovering the gloriously unspoilt natural parks of the arriere pays.
So why not simply stroll into town...
The Promenade de la Belle Scribote, with its lakside path, is just at the bottom of the street.
La Belle Scribote is Marseillan's own swashbuckling seafaring heritage: a tale of derring do and romance, of the local boy who battled brigands on land and sea to rescue a Marseillan lass (Marie, known as the Scribotte) from a foreign harem; and a story retold in song and light in the port in past summers by a cast of over 100 singers and dancers (DVD of the muscial on sale in the village and tourist office)
The lighthouse at the mouth of the canal at les Onglous just a few hundred yards away.
Walk a little further, discover the flamongos on the lagoon or the Bagnas nature reserve, home to egrets and kingfishers, herons and countless other waterfowl.
From Le Vigier, it is an easy saunter along the rue de l'Occitanie to the Champion supermarket and the village boulangeries for freshly baked baguettes and warm buttery croissants at daybreak.
On a Tuesday morning, forage in the market for herbs and olives, fresh fish from the lagoon and fine cheeses to prepare in your kitchen and savour on your terrace.
