Between Sept and Agde, the small commune of Marseillan, which overlooks both the Mediterranean and the Etang de Thau (the largest in the Languedoc region), as well as the seaside resort of Marseillan-Plage, is located in the Occitanie region of the Hérault. Drained by the Canal du Midi and built in the 6th century, the town has retained its true soul.
