LITTLE GEM APARTMENT & POOL
My wife and I spent two weeks in late June in this cosy , private and well situated apartment. We can only endorse many of the other reviews posted by previous guests. It is a little gem for 2 people who require privacy and comfort in well equipped accommodation. Derek and Lisa go the extra mile to ensure you are happy and content in the surroundings without in any way being overbearing. As has been said by many previous guests it is an approximate 15 minute stroll to the town of Marseillan with it's plentiful shops and eateries. If you want a special treat try Les Deux M a real quality French restaurant. A little pricey but well worth the experience. Thank you also Derek and Lisa for the pool situated in such a lovely peaceful garden. Guest rating: 5

RELAXING HOLIDAY IN THE SUN !
What a wonderful relaxing Villa holiday we had in this lovely house. Located in the beautiful town of Marseillan but near to wonderful beaches ( and Vineyards ) The house is brilliantly equipped for a great family holiday and Derek and Lisa who are close by were so helpful and had great advice on local things we could do. We had 3 weeks there and were very sad to leave. We will hopefully be back soon.

Guest rating: 5 out 5 Stars
The beds were very supportive and very comfortable. The bathroom was modern and the new kitchen was excellently equipped (a better dish selection than we have at home!). The whole place was absolutely spotless and we very much appreciated that attention to cleanliness. We also loved the sunny peaceful garden and pool together with the barbecue area which catches the evening sun.

Great Holiday Despite Covid !!
We spent a relaxing 14 days in Villa Belles de Mai this Summer. Derek and Lise were most welcoming and helpful during our stay. Our children loved the accessibility of the pool and having 2 patios to choose where to eat every day! The Villa is very well maintained with all the amenities you would need. A delightful 15 minutes along the lagoon took us into the nearby Port and Marseillan centre to visit the lovely Port shops and restaurants. A 5 min bus journey in the other direction is the lovely beach of Marseillan Plage with plenty to keep the children occupied. A car would be a real bonus to get around and see the wonderful area, but it is still easily accessible without one. It is just a shame we never made it to Noilly Prat for that promised cocktail !!

Lovely Garden Apartment
Excellent villa, excellent location
Fabulous holiday home
A delightful and enjoyable place to stay.
"Brilliant place to stay" Review Sept. 2016
Lovely comfortable villa, with relaxing pool and sun patio. Location is excellent for pleasant walk to port, restaurants and town. The villa is situated on a small estate which was very quiet, and the road ended at the vineyard. The owners, Derek and Lisa were great hosts and were very attentive and informative. The visit to Noilly Prat was excellent and Lisa a great tour guide.They also made a fuss of our dog who loved it. We would definitely consider visiting again.

"Holiday - July 2016"
We have holidayed several times in Marsellian but this was our first stay at the Villa. Derek and Lisa were very welcoming and on hand if we had any questions. The Villa was very clean and in good condition and had all the amenities you would need for your stay.The Pool was great ! We had 2 young children and the Villa was well equipped for them too. It was a short walk into the Port, which was a lovely stroll in the evening along the Etang ( Lagoon). Overall a lovely holiday and I would recommend the Villa.

Villa Review Winter 2014 "Relaxing extended holiday"
I stayed at Villa Belles de Mai for 4 months during the winter & found it to be very clean, spacious and comfortable. Derek & Lisa were very friendly & welcoming and extremely helpful during my stay. The pretty port of Marseillan is within a comfortable 12 mins walk along the Etang. I also found plenty of places to visit locally plus trips further afield to occupy me over my extended stay. Bearing in mind it was winter, the weather was dryer & sunnier than I had expected, and temperatures significantly higher than the UK.

"Excellent, Spacious Villa" Review Sept. 2013
The villa was exceptionally spacious and had everything that one would require for a holiday home. We were only 2 people but there would have been comfortably enough room for 6. Marseillan was a fairly short walk and offered plenty of nice restaurants but a car is essential for visits to the beach, and further afield to canoe in the mountains. September offered plenty of sunshine and long enough days with beautiful sunsets. The price cannot be faulted as this represents excellent value for money. All in all I would thoroughly recommend this villa and we plan on going back again.

"Have just arrived home after spending a week in the garden apartment, it was wonderful. The property was immaculate and very well equipped. The pool area and garden were beautiful, a great place to chill out. So much to see and do in the surrounding area but sadly not enough time so will just have to go again.
Perfect hosts Perfect holiday !
Perfect Chill Out !
Relaxing and comfortable stay
Review Submitted: April 30, 2011 Date of Stay: April 2010
is a very pleasant, extremely clean and well equipped property, ideal
for families and couples alike. Everything was supplied, in good working
order and the owners, who are very helpful and pleasant are on hand
to deal with any enquiries quickly and efficiently. Marseillan is a lovely little town with some very good restaurants and bars, especially around the Port, and the whole area is great for those who like water sports, boating
and sailing. A very long, sandy beach is very nearby. Recommended
for: Girls Getaway, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with
Young Children in fact everybody !
"A lovely Birthday present"
Derek and Lisa are perfect hosts, always on hand but not obtrusive in any way, and thanks to Lisa we discovered the wonders of Noilly Prat.
I would highly recommend this accommodation for your holiday in the South of France.

Just returned from a lovely week. Villa is well appointed, has everything you need and is close enough to the pretty port of Marseillan whilst still being a peaceful and relaxing location. The owners are very helpful and accommodating but not at all intrusive. Would highly recommend this villa.
