Marseillan, a former Phocaean city, has retained the authentic charm of a fishing village nestled among the vineyards, between the Mediterranean and the Thau Basin.

The old streets of the village and their heritage composed of old bourgeois houses and worked porches testify to this rich past. The village of Marseillan has had an eventful history. It was founded by the Phoceans before being dominated by the Gauls. The Romans then took over until the end of the 5th century.
