A meandering primer to crab town,
This review is from: Marseillan & a Lot of Languedoc: Lazy France: How to be Very Very Lazy in Marseillan and a Lot of Languedoc (Paperback)
Strangely for somewhere that is only a large village, Marseillan has had a number of books written about it - including several in English. As a resident this would be the one I would recommend to anybody staying specifically in the area and venturing into other parts of Languedoc. Phillips writes with the authority of somebody who was spent many hours sitting in the cafés, wandering the souk-like streets of the old town, picking at shellfish from the Étang de Thau, seeking out local vineyards, enjoying the weather and reading up on the long history. In fact you could throw out your other guides to the region and keep this which is all the better for being discursive, passionate and a little quirky.
