France continues to ease the lockdown restrictions.

All travel restrictions within France have now been lifted and travel to France from other EU countries is now possible.

We are once again offering a full service taking on new mandates and organising accompanied property viewings with those clients who are able to travel. Please note that we are following government guidelines on all security measures to be taken to ensure your safety and our safety.

If you are not able to come out for viewings we can put together a property list, send you available information and material on your preferred properties and accompany you on live virtual tours. In addition we have an e-signing facility for all legal documents

With our best wishes to all our clients from the France Property Angels Team

Marsillargues

This village of Languedoc Roussillon is situated on the Vidourle River 20 km before it flows into the Mediterranean Sea. Marsillargues lies at mid distance between Montpellier and Nimes (35 km from both these large local towns) in the departement of Herault. The Southern part of the commune is part of the swampy lands of Petite Camargues. Just 4 km North West of Marsillargues, the little local town of Lunel offers many cultural activities as well as all the necessary facilities.

Marsillargues was made into a fiefdom by Philippe le Bel in 1295. The castle today has a magnificent Renaissance style façade, quite rare for this part of the Languedoc. The village also has old Catholic and Protestant Churches, as do many of the villages in this area of Languedoc Roussillon.

 

The production of wine was and still is one of the important activities for the village that has one of France’s largest wineries. The local tradition of bull farming and bull games is also extremely present in Marsillargues. The village has an interesting bull arena built in the middle of the village shaped to adapt the position of the houses and streets.

Marsillargues has a population of 6000. It has schools, some shops and services. The close-by town of Lunel also offers useful facilities including several weekly markets, a covered market, cultural activities, restaurants and cafés.
