We stayed here for a week in August and had a really lovely time. Zoe was quick to respond to emails and very helpful when we were organising our travel plans, and, living close by, it was good to know that there was a contact point should anything come up. She met us on arrival and showed us around and had thoughtfully provided some toys for our young son to play with. Overall, she helped to make the holiday a very happy experience.
The photos of the apartment are very accurate and there is plenty of space for a family. Everything was beautifully presented and clean and we enjoyed our time there enormously. The apartment is close to all the amenities one might need and a 10-minute walk both to the beach and the centre of town. La Ciotat is a very lovely spot and we loved the quiet pace of life and the un-touristy feel. There are lots of restaurants to choose between and it's very handily placed for day trips to Marseille or Aix-en-Provence. Our big tip to anyone staying here though is to take a day-trip to the island of Embiez, a beautifully unspoiled, tiny island that you can walk end to end in an afternoon and find some excellent spots for paddling or swimming. Well worth a visit.
Thanks to Zoe and family for making our stay such a good one and we hope to be able to come back soon.
We received a lovely welcome despite being late due to delayed flight and car hire problems. The apartment was lovely and clean and has everything you need for a stay at La Ciotat. The location was excellent being situated a short walk from the beaches on the left and a short stroll to the harbour on the right with all of its restaurants, street markets and delightful boats.
La Ciotat puts on lots of events for tourists in August and we enjoyed fireworks, raft races, street markets, boat parades and musical events.
The local area is beautiful and part of a national park with all the local places to visit equally lovely as the last. During our stay we visited: Bandol, Sanuary Sur Mer, Nimes, Arles, Hyeres, Casselet, Cassis and Marseilles.
This is truly a wonderful holiday destination! We cannot wait to visit again.
