                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    The flat has been sensitively converted in order to offer a large dining space (with view over harbour) and a roof terrace. There is a modern kitchen and two bedrooms. It's ideal for a family of four - our children who are 12 and 14 were quite happy with the bunk-beds, and indeed the WiFi ... The roof terrace involves a climb up a narrow staircase and the trap door access is quite hard work. Although there is a fence on the terrace I'm not sure we would have been comfortable with the children being up there when they were, say, 8 and 10. The owner rightly encourages you not to leave the children unaccompanied. The flat is located in a very narrow street in one of the old parts of the town. The area is charming and it is a matter of minutes (actually seconds) to get to the beaches, the port and all the butchers, bakers, fruit shops, cafes and restaurants you will need. Parking is a problem - but this is not an isolated issue and is even worse in Cassis. There is a big car park, which is free in the evening and overnight, but it gets expensive to feed the meter for a day. After quite a bit of trial and error I found a free surface car park at La Petanque (nice walk back to flat past wine shop ...). Just in terms of the beaches we preferred to walk a bit and tended to go to the Lumiere beach - better for swimming as no rocks underfoot. You can also walk to the calanques on the other side of the harbour which are amazing for swimming, although a bit cramped if you just want to lie around. The main street through the centre - Rue des Poilus - has everything you need in terms of food and it is worth saying that everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. My son has multiple food allergies and they checked ingredients very carefully. In terms of restaurants we tended to avoid the moules frites joints around the port. They are certainly good value, but I'm not sure I'd want to eat mussels which were cooked in the morning, or quite possibly the day before. We ate well in the Tete d'ail (one of the waiters lives in the same block) and in the Vietnamese place near to it (see Trip Advisor). Also a great burger at Burgers du Sud! We visited the museum, watched a film at the Eden cinema, went to Marseille and had a great sea-kayaking expedition (organised by expenature). La Ciotat was a real find (at night there is a big craft market) and it is genuinely French. If you don't know French many of the shop owners have English, but why not learn French???

                                                                                                    5 of 5

The villa itself was very clean, functional and modern, with good sized rooms (particularly kitchen and lounge) and plenty of communal space. There were only three of us for most of the stay as we had cancellations, but you could easily fit 6 people in the 3 double rooms, plus 2-3 in the mezzanine and bed under the stairs. Outdoors there is a gas powered barbecue and good sized pool. The train station is only 15 minutes away, so although a car is preferable, there are options with public transport (we went into Marseille on the train a couple of times and it was pretty smooth). I can't be positive enough about the host, Janat. As well as answering numerous queries on the area and the accommodation, she cooked a fantastic meal on our first night so we didn't have to pop to the shops! And provided wine and beer. She was incredibly thoughtful and went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable,
