|Minimum Stay||1 - 7 nights|
We are renting the first floor of a recently renovated beachfront family house. It is located in a private and sunny dead end which benefits from a panoramic view of the sea and the bay in direction of Marseille-Cassis-la-Ciotat-Bandol-Sanary. There are openings on each corner of the house; two open onto the beach (one of these is a loggia) and the two others open onto gardens planted with trees. There is a terrace and a barbecue on the ground floor, as well as a parking space (important). There are two beaches in front of the house, the first one is a fine sand beach for families (it is perfect for children), the other one is a white gravel beach which is more quiet. The latter is surfers and kite surfers' favourite spot.
The pre-war house has a soul. The standard of living is comfortable, simple, and Mediterranean; you will want to spend your whole holidays here. The popular atmosphere is mixed with a high-range interior finish which is not ostentatious and keeps typical features of the traditional houses of the south. Couples will love it, families with children even more.
It benefits from its location: 72 steps away from the beach; you will not even need your car. There are many activities available nearby: diving, sailing, tree climbing, a Provençal market, big game fishing, etc. The house is only 300 m away from the pier where you can take a boat to go the île des Embiez (Embiez island), Paul Ricard's island, many coves, as well as the famous island of Gaou, a protected site where concerts featuring international artists are organised in a hamlet called Le Brusc. It is located in a picturesque little fishing harbour in Le Brusc, on the foot of the Massif de Sicié and the hill of Fort in Six-Fours. Le Brusc was destroyed and rebuilt many times over the course of History, for example during the Saracen invasions and the second World War. Nowadays, the fishermen try to keep the artisanal coastal fishing traditions alive as well as the Provençal customs.
One of the very good accesses to the beautiful sceneries of the region, from Marseille to Bandol and from Toulon to Saint-Tropez.
My family (4 adults) spent three nights in this beautiful apartment just off the beach, which has a great view from the windows -- there's no visual obstruction by the one house in between it and the sea. Oddly the pictures only show one of the two bedrooms -- there are in fact two full bedrooms with large beds, we were slightly afraid it would be a fold-out couch as the second bed, but everything was better than expected.
Really the location can't be beat. It's at the very end of Six-Fours-les-Plages so it's much less crowded than up towards Sanary-sur-Mer, but it's still close to a small commercial center (a bakery and a small supermarket are within a 5 minute walk, plus several restaurants). It's right across the street from a kayak/standup paddle rental, and convenient to the beach, with both a pebble beach and a sand beach within 150 meters. The beaches are cleaned every morning at around sunrise so everything is very nice. There's parking available on-site which is fairly essential at a place like this. We had planned to do day trips in the area for our three days here, but we ended up spending 2 days just at the house, and then one day in Cassis, and I have to say, the beach here was far nicer than the one in Cassis!
We did not actually meet Pauline, who was on vacation during our stay, but we had no trouble in any case. If we ever come back to the south of France for a beach vacation, we would come to Six-Fours, and we would stay at Pauline's house if it is available!
Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable dans cette charmante maison. La proximité de la plage est un atout non négligeable surtout avec nos enfants en bas âge. De plus les propriétaires sont des gens très sympathiques qui se donne beaucoup de mal pour que les locataires soient satisfait.
Nous espérons revenir très prochainement.
