La Baraquette, in the Languedoc region of the South of France is the Mediterranean’s most exciting new property development. The location of the land is unsurpassed, with magnificent views over the Thau Lagoon and the Mediterranean sea beyond.
Unlike other ‘gated’ communities, La Baraquette has been built as an integrated extension of a lively port village. Between the elegant, modern villas, attractive vinyards weave their way into the daily life of the resort, and produce delicious wines.
Light, spacious, natural and local, the waterfront villas, patio villas and apartments all combine a traditional, French elegance with sleek, modern comforts.

Rising gently from the sea, the plot on which La Baraquette is being built produces arguably some of the most spectacular views in all of the Mediterranean. Situated on the northern edge of Marseillan, a charming and bustling port-village, the villas, apartments and 5-star hotel of the La Baraquette development will occupy land once carpeted in vines. The estate boasts a unique position that has been designed to be an extension of the village of Marseillan, helping to ensure visitors never feel cut off from the richness of the local culture.
Sitting in your garden or terrace with a glass of rosé, you’ll see the oyster tables stretching across the still, pearlescent waters of the ‘Etang de Thau’ (a salt-water lagoon). The protected salt-water lagoon, with crystal clear waters, is home to flocks of flamingos and white herons, as well as the ‘Bouzigues Oysters’, said to be the finest in France. Beyond them the twinkling lights of the port-town of Sète rise from the sea and up the hill of Mont St Claire. Further along the coast lie the pretty villages of Mèze and Bouzigues, both famed for their delicious seafood. Directly across the crystal-clear waters of the lagoon stretch mile upon mile of sandy beaches, peppered with chic beach clubs serving superb food and evening cocktails.
The nearby Canal du Midi is an undeniable jewel in the region’s crown. Built to connect the Atlantic Ocean with the Mediterranean, this ‘World Heritage Site’ flows under a canopy of plane trees, from Toulouse and Carcassonne in the west, through the rugged Minervois and Corbières wine regions to the Etang de Thau.
La Baraquette is just a short drive to where the canal meets the sea, and visitors can enjoy a day’s cruise, complete with lunch and plenty of rosé.
La Baraquette is ideally situated in Languedoc, in the southern region of France. Green with vines and scented with lavender, the south of France is an ancient and unspoilt area of blue skies and dramatic landscapes, nestling along a 200 kilometre stretch of golden beaches, from the Côte d’Azur to the Spanish border.
With over 300 days of sunshine, 200km of coastline, mountains, rivers, canals and lakes, Southern France is a truly special region. The area is home to a thriving arts scene, with the Montpellier ‘Opera Orchestra Nationale’ being widely considered one of the finest in France, and the city also hosting the Montpellier Dance Festival, one of the biggest in Europe. In nearby Sète, the ‘Jazz à Sète’ festival attracts famous names from all over the world. Each summer every village and town in the region throws an annual ‘féte’ with an opportunity to mix with the locals, dine on local fare and enjoy the fireworks and festivities. With fiestas taking place seemingly every other day, the vibrancy of life in the region is tempered only by devotion to an unhurried pace of life that is unmistakably and quintessentially Mediterranean.
Fast being discovered by holidaymakers and property buyers alike, the region offers tremendous diversity: sandy beaches, wooded mountains, ancient market towns, thriving fishing villages and vineyards of international notoriety. The region’s history is most evident in its vineyards. Once the world’s largest wine-producer, in recent years local wine-makers have cut production in order to improve quality, with spectacular results. The region is currently viewed by many as the most exciting wine-growing region in the world.
La Baraquette is ideally situated in mediterranean southern France and easily accessible by air, road and rail. It is closely located to several large towns and cities, making it the ideal holiday destination.
Few areas of Europe are as well served by flights, trains and road networks as this region. Marseillan is in easy reach of eight international airports, all within a two hour radius. The nearest airport to, Béziers-Cap d’Agde, is only 20 minutes away, and offers flights to England, Ireland, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, Sweden and Norway. Montpellier is within a 40 minute drive and the remaining six international airports are all within two hours’ drive, offering mostly low-cost flights to cities across Europe.
Train connections to the region are similarly impressive. On the high-speed TGV, the cafés and galleries of Paris are only four hours away. A new TGV line, direct to Barcelona, will mean access to the Port Olympic in less than two hours. With connections as fast as that, a day trip to Barcelona becomes a very pleasant experience. Motorways in France are also excellent, and the A9 autoroute connects the area around La Baraquette with the rest of France and Spain.
