Perfect family house or two spacious apartments, just yards from the market square, yet close to the port, park and la plagette, lagoon summer beach. 4 double bedrooms and a children's room with bunk beds, 4 shower rooms (2 ensuite). A grand roof terrace for lazing under a Languedoc sun and toasting the stars on a summer night, 2 kitchen dining rooms - space for a family to be a family.
La Cachette is a place to hide your secrets, and this delightful and versatile house in one of Marseillan's oldest streets has a very special secret of its own - it may become two independent apartnments, to be rented seperately or together.
Ideal for groups of friends or family travelling together, this house may allow each generation the freedom to enjoy its own lifestyle - one holiday home for the night owls, another for the early birds.
Perhaps the upstairs apartment La Terrasse, where a late night diner in the port or an evening dancing by the plage may be rounded off with a digestif served under the stars of a Languedoc night to the fragrance of the Mediterranean sea air and the echo of the church bell chime on the breeze.
Maybe Le Salon apartment would be your choice, a short walk to Eugene's artisanal bakery on the corner for freshest crusty loaves, a different style each day of the week, to enjoy in the first floor breakfast room.
Whether you stay in one of the twin apartments or enjoy the run of the entire house, La Cachette is an ideal home for exploring the charms of the oldest village in France and the pretty port with its quayside tables.
Open the simple front door to the delightfully tiled hallway of La Cachette and climb the stairs to discover the house for yourself.
A second front door on the first floor opens from the staircase into the hallway of what may be selected as the three bedroom Le Salon apartment. Pass a double bedroom, shower room and wc and a twin bedroom (with bunk beds), then enter the well equipped kitchen (with fitted cooker, fridge and microwave) and morning room with its dining table and tall windows looking out over the street across a juliette balcony railing. From here, walk through to the seperate living room. Many original features including the mantelpiece over the fireplace and the traditional tiled floor. A comfy sofa and a pair of armchairs by another sunny south-facing window make this a charming den for a quiet evening chatting over a glass of local Merlot or just watching TV to unwind after a day at the beach. From the living room, discover the master bedroom suite with its private shower room and wc.
Up the old staircase to the second floor, and a bright two-bedroom roof-terrace apartment. The master double bedroom also has an ensuite shower and wc. The second double bedroom (under the eaves) has original beams across the ceiling and a window looking out onto the terrace. The main living and dining room, with an L shaped sofa (which converts to become an extra bed for overnight guests) is open plan to the kitchen - well equipped with oven, hob, microwave and fridge). Original stone walls and roof beams are a feature of this family room with its glass wall leading out to the terrace. The loft conversion into an outdoors dining area has an abris shelter so that you may enjoy life al fresco even in the midday sunshine. A marble-topped table for enjoying memorable meals at sunset, comfy chairs for simply lazing outside underthe mediterranean sun.
Whether you enjoy the luxury of the whole house, or opt to stay in one of the two apartments, the ground flooor laundry room, with washing machine and drying space also has space for storing your bicycles should you decide to follow the Tour de France in July or take a cycle path around the lagoon or along the Canal du Midi any time of year.
The main sandy beaches at Marseillan Plage are an easy 5 minute drive away. The Plagette by the lagoonside park, just 5-10 minutes stroll. A one-euro shuttle bus meets all flights at Beziers airport, so no need for a car!
