This exceptional beachfront villa in Marseillan Plage has one of the most desirable positions, right on a sandy beach and with impressive views. The house was built in 1950 and has been renovated to provide a comfortable holiday home that is well equipped and perfectly located for its guests.

The entrance hall has 17 wide steps leading to the upper ground floor, which is beach level and also accessed via a large, gently sloping ramp to the side of the property. There is a huge, circular, open-plan living room with a high octagonal ceiling, three different seating areas and a vast fireplace. Most of the rooms enjoy fantastic sea views and from the living area, large glass doors lead out on to a covered terrace. The living room leads on to the dining room with a large table and then through to the well-equipped kitchen.

There are 11 bedrooms in total, some of which have air conditioning. They all offer simple interiors but provide a comfortable place to relax after busy days with the family.

The large, covered terrace is the perfect spot for dining al fresco as you gaze out to sea. There is a Weber gas BBQ and plenty of tables and chairs. With a fence that stretches around the whole 5000m² garden and features a remote-controlled gate. With a fully fenced and gated residence and relatively shallow waters on the beach, this property and location is very safe for families with children.
