We stayed at this beautiful newly renovated property in Istres in the summer with our family of five, consisting of three young children (one of whom is a toddler). For a relatively small house we found that it accommodated us perfectly. We made the most of the hot climate by barbecuing outside every night and we bought a little swimming pool for the children to use so they could cool down. We can also recommend the two local beaches (jet skiing at the beach is brilliant and well organised). There is fantastic shopping to be found at Miramas. We also used the location to venture further afield into Avignon, Gordes, Les Baux, Aix de Provence, Saintes Maries Del la Mer. All in one week and each within an hour of the house.
We really benefited from the air conditioning in our room too as the temperature was over 35oC.
Our lovely hosts live close by and we found them to be ready to answer any queries about the local area and to help when we needed anything.
We will definitely be going back and hope to explore Marseille properly this time.
Wow, what a wonderful villa. Just right for two people, with a lovely splash pool and garden that’s perfect for breakfasts in the sun. Just the thing we were looking for for a week away from it all. Istres is lovely too, with the lagoon and its cafes etc a 30min walk away. Don’t miss the weekly market which takes over the entire downtown area. At the villa, owners Patrick and Severine made us feel very welcome. Superbe. A+
