MarseillanFrance

Wind, wine and waves: Marseillan flutters between life's pleasures as it sways between nature and history, and land and sea.

At Marseillan, the Canal du Midi opens into the Bassin de Thau, a lagoon with water the colour of the sky. Graus, small natural channels, connect the spectacular untouched wilderness of this 29 mi² body of water to the Mediterranean. The banks of the lagoon are home to a wide variety of wildlife. If you're lucky, you may even see some flamingos!

This unusual environment, between salt and fresh water, allows Marseillan to produce oysters, mussels and clams with a unique flavour. Dive into a platter of seafood at one of the lagoon's restaurants with your toes in the sand and the sea on the horizon. And why not wash it down with a glass of local wine? As a result of the exceptional sunshine averages, Marseillan produces Merlot, Chardonnay and even Shiraz among others.

The vineyard is an essential stop on your visit. Discover the unique collection at Domaine de Vassal, which boasts 2,250 varieties of grapes. History buffs will be in their element while discovering Marseillan's past in the market place, which was covered in 1310 and whose arches are made from black basalt lava stone from Agde, as well as the Théâtre Henri Maurin, the region's last Italian-style theatre and the Marianne statue which is the oldest in France.

Marseillan is also a hotspot for water sports. What with the Les Glénans sailing school and the Cercle de Voile de Marseillan sailing club, how can you resist the call of the sea? For those who prefer to relax on the Mediterranean beaches, Marseillan-Plage offers a long stretch of fine sandy beach.

Why not combine your holiday to Marseillan with a trip to the nearby towns of Agde and Sète? Whether you visit as a couple, family or in a group of friends, this Mediterranean seaside resort has all the ingredients for an unforgettable stay.
