Architecture and Interiors
Slow Life Architects from Barcelona took inspiration from the traditional architecture of the farmhouses as well as Maison de Vignerons (winemakers’ homes), and created an inspired architecture utilising stone masonry and local materials with interiors crafted by the esteemed Lázaro Rosa-Violan, best known for delivering experience-driven spaces at some of the finest establishments across Europe. Cleverly combining colours, textures, and mood of the Mediterranean, these upmarket residences offer bright and expansive spaces.
Marseillan is thought to be one of the oldest French towns founded in the sixth century B.C. by Greek merchants extending their commercial activities along the Mediterranean coast. This charming portside town has a bustling market and thriving restaurants steeped in history. Romans built the harbour to establish Marseillan as a fishing town.
The Languedoc region, where Marseillan is located, is known for its wine production today and is the largest wine producing area in the world. Thus, LUX* La Baraquette is surrounded by some of the country’s finest vineyards and overlooks the world famous oyster beds of the Thau Lagoon, home to over 700 Mediterranean species including 18 varieties of shellfish, of which the most important of all is the Pink Diamond oysters, a favourite delicacy in this region. In addition to its leisurely Southern France charm, the region benefits from 300 days of sunshine every year.
Hikers and explorers will find many hours of enjoyment in the great outdoors and are likely to stumble upon one of the numerous historic villages, towns and chateaux. For skiers, the peaks of Pyrenees are just a day trip away.
