Lovers' getaway


Between the Mediterranean Sea and the Thau lagoon... Between the Bagnas reserve and the Canal du Midi... Marseillan sometimes takes on the air of the Camargue, but above all of a romantic town with its wealth of activities dedicated to lovers.

If you need to find yourself with your partner or simply offer him a beautiful stay, go to Marseillan to see the sun set on the lagoon by boat, to satisfy your taste buds around a glass of wine and a plate of typical oysters, to live your first time (or not) on horseback or simply to relax your feet in the sand.


Sail'in Project

To get an idea of what awaits you during your romantic getaway in Marseillan, we suggest you start your stay with a boat trip.

You can trust Ludovic, the owner of Sail'in Project, to guide you on the boat and on the itineraries to do in the surroundings. For example, you can explore the Thau lagoon and meander through the oyster beds to Sète.

Alternatively, you can wait for the sun to set and go on an adventure in the lagoon. On the way, don't hesitate to take a swim before relaxing with a glass of local wine.

The Richemer cellars

Love is also about good wine, but always in moderation. If this philosophy inspires you, then come and coo at the Richemer cellars over a glass of wine, and more precisely at the Cave de la Plage.

As the name suggests, you will find it on the outskirts of Marseillan-Plage, but apart from the enchanting and perfectly romantic setting, we chose this domain for the diversity of the activities it offers.

Sit down at one of the available tables and let the owners guide you in the choice of your beverage, but especially in the choice of the tapas that will accompany your delicious nectar.

Don't miss the opportunity to extend this gourmet experience with a "Wine and Senses" or "Winegrower's Secret" workshop to learn more about wine (and incidentally about the history of the region).


Tip: If you can't part with your bike, good news! The Cave de la Plage, in addition to being labelled "Vignoble & Découverte", has the "Accueil Vélo" label.

You can therefore get there in complete tranquillity, but also venture out into the surrounding area, as it is the ideal starting point for trips to the Thau lagoon, the Port cellar, the Bagnas reserve, the Maraval estate, the viewpoint of the Criée d'Agde, the Canal du Midi...

The Bulle des Sables spa 

Steamy water, the scent of herbal teas, dimmed lights... This is the setting that awaits you at the Bulle des Sables spa if you decide to combine the pleasures of the body with your romantic getaway in Marseillan.

It is on the seafront that you will find this little paradise dedicated to relaxation and that you can bask in the hammam, the sauna, the indoor swimming pool... Extend this moment by having a treatment or a massage and why not a tailor-made one.

The little extra: the establishment provides the bath sheets... So you don't have to worry about anything (except your swimming costume).

The Saint-Barth

After your wellness break at the Bulle des Sables spa, savour the iodine air along the Rieu beach and then head for Le Saint-Barth to taste the region's seafood specialities.

Between the water and the sky, step onto the pontoon overlooking the area and try to guess the oyster beds facing you in the lagoon. The best part is to experience this discovery at sunset.

Continue to enjoy the view of the lagoon from the terrace, but this time with a plate of oysters and a glass of white wine. You can (re)discover the unmissable Bouzigues oyster or prefer the sweet, nutty taste of the special Tarbouriech oyster. Don't miss the chance to tantalise your taste buds with a mussel brasucade.

When it comes to romance, a ride in a horse-drawn carriage is a must. That's why, for this new idea, we suggest you trust

You will have the choice between several tourist circuits (we'll tell you more in a few moments), but above all combine this moment of relaxation with the discovery of local products.

As for the walks, you will have the choice between going through the vineyards and the Thau lagoon from the port of Marseillan. Then continue to the Domaine de la Fadèze where you will have a tasting of local wine.

If you prefer to extend your discovery of the seafood of the Thau lagoon, choose the "mas ostreicoles" (oyster farms) walk where, still leaving from the port of Marseillan, you will walk through the vineyards, on the edge of the lagoon with a gourmet stop in a mas. There, you will learn the particularities of the profession before, of course, tasting oysters accompanied by wine.
