Domaine de la Mandoune, Marseillan

Domaine de la Mandoune

A very exciting new development has just been launched, Domaine de la Mandoune, Marseillan.

Le Domaine de la Mandoune stretches out over almost 45 hectares. Seen from the outside, the buildings call to mind a typical Southern French village, with small courtyards and alleyways viewed from the park. There is no standardisation and each apartment is unique.
A perfect retreat, where you can either enjoy listening to the slow ripples of the water breaking on the shore, reading a good book on your shaded terrace or just experience the relaxing environment of the pool…
The variety of the landscape is exceptional. In front of the property there is a park of 100-year-old trees featuring pines and other such Mediterranean trees. Alongside are vineyards, an olive grove, vegetable gardens and a range of bushes and grasses. Around the estate, shoreline vegetation extends out of sight – reed beds, wild orchids and sea daffodils. Everywhere, the scents of pines, sea, thyme and rosemary mix together in the air.
Le Domaine de La Mandoune will be the perfect place for taking that exceptionally good "breath of fresh air".

More compulsory surveys for Languedoc property

Rather like the now obsolete HIP pack in the UK, French properties being sold have to have (by law) a raft of compulsory surveys which, since Jan 1st have just grown in number.

As of this year properties being sold with sceptic tanks (Fosse septic in French) now have to have a survey to confirm they are up to scratch.

This survey forms part of the sales contract and any irregularities must be put right at the seller's expense.

There are now 8 compulsory surveys (dependent on the age of the property) including;

Natural risk assessment (flooding)
Electrical Performance Certificate (DPE in French)
Sceptic tank

If you are selling or thinking of selling a Languedoc property and would like more info on this subject then email us and we will do our best to help.
