My autumn family holiday in Marseillan


For a successful family holiday, head for Marseillan! The charm of the town, its port and the activities it offers will guarantee you memorable moments with your children.


Cycling routes

If you are a two-wheeled enthusiast, we invite you to visit one of the bicycle rental companies in Marseillan and explore the region thanks to no less than 25 kilometres of cycle paths
You can, among other things, link Marseillan-Ville to Marseillan-Plage, but also go further in the direction of Cap d'Agde, Sète and the Archipelago of Thau.
For families who prefer to spend a more relaxed afternoon, we invite you to go to Marseillan-Plage along the Avenue de la Méditerranée to rent your rosalie and pedal while admiring the view of the Plage d'Honneur for example.

La Camargue Ranch

A visit of the region on horseback... This is the experience that the La Camargue ranch offers you.
Here too, whether you are a beginner or an expert is irrelevant, as several themed rides are offered according to your wishes and level. You can for example :
Walk at pace in the Bagnas nature reserve for 1 hour.
Or you could extend this time in the reserve with a 2-hour walk along the seafront and inland.
Gallop along the beach before enjoying the panoramic view of the Thau lagoon and Agde from the Mont Saint-Loup (3h).
Escape between land and sea to Mont Saint-Loup for 4 hours.

The beaches of Marseillan

We no longer need to introduce you to these 6 kilometres of blond sand on a blue Mediterranean background, it is the essential step of the seaside resort.
But we still wanted to introduce you to the one nicknamed La Plagette. Offering an unobstructed view of the Thau lagoon, it is ideal for children who can enjoy the proximity of a playground and a skatepark; for parents who will find several picnic tables and barbecues.

The Bagnas reserve

Alternating marshes, ponds, sansouïres and cultivated land, this is the ideal place to reconnect with Mother Nature, but above all to observe more than 200 species of birds, 16 species of reptiles, 9 species of amphibians, 30 species of mammals, 25 species of fish and 418 species of insects. 
But it is better to be well equipped (binoculars, hiking boots...) and a good observer to try to spot them on these 561 hectares classified as a National Nature Reserve and Natura 2000 area.

The port of Marseillan

Once a fishing port, then a commercial port (wines and spirits) with the development of maritime transport in the 19th century, it is now a marina which has retained all its charm.
Don't hesitate to walk along the quays and look for the boat of your dreams among the 350 that are docked there. Many restaurants will allow you to enjoy the view while tasting local specialities.
