“Fabulous little holiday home”
Reviewed 6 February 2012 for a stay in September 2010

Lovely house, nicely renovated, with everything provided to make for a comfortable, enjoyable holiday. Everything was of an excellent standard with lots of little personal touches to make you feel at home. Loved the situation of the house in it's typically French quirky little street. The proximity to the market square added to the appeal as did the superb, reasonably priced eateries, all within walking distance. The nearby beaches are beautifully clean and there are lots of other places of interest to visit within easy reach. The owners went out of their way to ensure our booking was straightforward and that we had everything we needed for a smooth, stress-free holiday. We would thoroughly recommend Rue de L'Amour and can't wait to visit again.

“Cosy cottage in easy walking distance of loads of great eateries”
Reviewed 22 January 2012 for a stay in March 2010

We had a very pleasant stay at Rue de l'Amour, a cost and well-appointed cottage. We particularly enjoyed the location - only five minutes walk to a shop and a great choice of cafes, restaurants and bars means that you could, if you wanted, eat out at a different place every night.

The cottage itself is ideal for hot weather, having a tiles on the ground floor, and is nice and cosy for an evening in. As long as you can tune out the sound of the church bells, and you have a car for trips further afield, this is a great place for a week away.

“Such Stuff As Dreams Are Made On.”
Reviewed 21 January 2012 for a stay in July 2010

Such stuff - I will give a valid or reasonable impression of this jewel property in a beautiful old town. As an experienced traveller who has stayed in many, many differing properties and hotels, from the bog-standard to luxury, and few places are without fault if you look for them.

I have stayed in this tastefully restyled "town house" in beautiful Marseillan on 3 separate occasions, and still dream to be able to find the opportunity to return again and enjoy the relaxation and authentic atmosphere that this place exudes.

All you need for a wonderful place to chill-out is here. The lovely modern decoration and included facilities help to create a perfect base for easy going days to enjoy the beautiful town and surrounding region. Simple, bright and charmingly decorated bedrooms, a cool modern style living/dining area and adequate kitchen are all that you need to cater for your mediterranean break. The neighbours are pleasant, and will let you practice your french and the narrow street where the house resides is close enough to the Church tower to experience the lovely bells and the ever fascinating swallows that swoop around them. The market square is only a one minute walk away and the regular markets are a charming way to spend a morning, in between coffee & pain au chocolate eating, of course.The property's cleaning lady is impressively french and I have always found her delightful.

It is situated in a narrow street within stumbling distance of the market square, bakery (yum), Cave, essential stores & a few pleasant eateries and drinkeries. All around and about are the winding streets of the 18th century fishing port. A ten minute slow amble further away, is the town's picturesque main Port area with a bigger selection of eateries and places to pass a warm afternoon, watching the world go by. Marseillan is attractive to tourists, but is not touristy. Take time to experience the wonderful seafood, ever present crepes and of course Noilly Prat.

It is a short drive to the busy seaside beach area of Marseillan Plage, and only a little further to the expansive beaches that border the road towards Sete. Further exploring of Herault is easy with good road connections. Local highlights are Pezenas, Sete, the Tarn Gorge, Agde & Aigues Mortes.

I love this property, I frequently long to return there.

“Can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed 17 January 2012 for a stay in May 2010

Travelling to Marseillan is like being a visitor rather than a tourist - you become a guest in the life of the town, and Rue de l'Amour's cosy elegance makes you feel VERY much at home there. Pop round the corner to buy fresh bread while the kettle boils for coffee - this place is right next to almost everywhere but as it's tucked away in a dear little street, the only people passing are your neighbours. It's the perfect place for kicking off your shoes after a hard day's sightseeing or beach-lounging, and rustling up delicious dinners in the well-appointed little kitchen. Finish off the evening there with board games/books/open fire (if the season's right) and much late-night local wine. Bliss. Comfy beds, roomy bathroom - it's like home from home. Only somewhere much warmer. And rather better decorated, she says wistfully.

The wildly eclectic collection of books to read is an inspired friendly idea, and the handwritten guest book is a riot of entertaining stories and invaluable recommendations for (and against) local sights and eateries.

“Great location, wonderful ambience and everything provided for a relaxing break”
Reviewed 12 January 2012 for a stay in October 2010

This was my second stay at Rue de L'Amour. I love the location - so handy for the local shops and market in its narrow side street in the old part of town. Since my last visit a sun balcony had been added to the facilities and this was a boon even in October. I enjoyed cooking of an evening in the well-appointed kitchen and playing board games and reading after a long day seeing the sights. The house has a restful ambience and you can feel 'at home' as soon as the suitcases hit the bedroom floors - the beds are all comfy and everything is maintained to an excellent standard.
