Sara and Jeff welcome you on your arrival and you are immediately struck by the care, artistic flair and attention they have lavished on the house and on the apartment. It is stunning. Every detail has been attended to. Sara's artwork and other unique pieces decorate the walls. It is very comfortable and feels like a home. The kitchen is very well equipped and it is a good sized area. The lounge is also a lovely area to relax. There is potential for 3/4 people to stay here. The bathroom is also generous in size and well equipped. All the furniture has been carefully selected and the bed is very comfortable. We came in the winter and the apartment is very warm and cosy. You are on the doorstep to the village amenities and a stone's throw from the port. Sara and Jeff offered for us to park in their garage but there is a cemetery just up the road where we parked and had no concerns about the security of our car. In summary, lovingly restored and renovated apartment done with exquisite taste. Very welcoming. What a treat to stay here and we will definitely return. A great place from which to explore the stunning landscape.
We had a short, 4-night stay at the apt. Barral. We were welcomed by Jeff and Sara in this beautiful and well-equipped appartment. We were taken great care of ,with towels, beach towels, information about the environment and neighbourhood, and an air-conditioned bedroom!
It is only a short ride to the beach and a short walk into town with restaurants. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at apt. Barral.
One point for improvement: it would be great if we could pay in euros through Tripadvisor. Perhaps this is something you could arrange?
A great apartment, full of character, in a wonderful location in central Marseillan. Great air conditioning, a very comfortable bed, fast Wi-Fi, UK TV and all self-catering facilities if you want to eat in :)
The owners Jeff and Sara are very friendly and helpful. They know the area well, and have lots of useful suggestions for excursions. I would highly recommend this central location with easy parking. Many local restaurants and bars within a few minutes’ walk from the apartment, with amazing fresh oysters a specialty!
There is plenty to do and see in the local area. The attractive port and town, local beaches, wine tasting, plenty of local entertainment and great restaurants. I would highly recommend this apartment if you are looking for a relaxed holiday in the region at a great price.
If you bring or rent a car there is much to see outside Marseillan, within a short drive.
Highly recommended and we plan to stay again :)
We really enjoyed staying here . The apartment is very spacious situated on the top floor of a lovely old house centrally located in the beautiful old village of Marseillan. Lovely views over the village. We loved it as it was completely private, although Sara and Jeff were very friendly and always around to give advice on the area if we needed them.
Loads of wonderful restaurants and bars all within easy walking distance.
We will definitely return!
My partner and I came to stay here as I was visiting my mum who lives in the village. I know the village well and this property is a perfect fit to its surroundings. Staying here felt like coming to my own home each night. I love how Sara and Jeff have decorated the rooms and the bed is particularly comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need and the shower is fantastic.
Their guide and history on Marseillan is expertly done especially if you haven't been before.
As for the hosts, Sara and Jeff, what can I say. They were very welcoming and always helpful, perfectly lovely people and I will be booking my further stays with Maison Barral.
