Accommodation, hospitality, location all excellent

  • 4 of 5

We spent two glorious weeks at this spacious apartment. The location is fantastic for exploring the Provence area and is within walking distance of a local well stocked supermarket, a boulangerie, butcher, restaurant. The property is spacious, very well equipped and the owners were extremely kind and hospitable, they shared their local knowledge with us and advised regarding buying fresh produce from a local farmer and the food market. They also advised on restaurants, local wines, and places of interest to visit. I would recommend this property of anyone planning to visit Provence. If we return to Provence we would definitely consider returning to the same property.

Beautiful apartment with lovely pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in Provence. The apartment was clean, spacious and well maintained. The property was within walking distance to the local amenities, -Supermarket, Bakery, Butcher and Restaurants.

The owners were very kind, helpful and accommodating-nothing was too much trouble for them.

Although the pool is shared with the owners this was not an issue at all. In fact it gave us the opportunity to pick their brains on occasions.

We would have no hesitation in recommending this property to friends and family. Excellent!

The picturesque village of Velaux sits in the perfect spot to explore the Provence-Côte-d’Azur region of France and there is so much to see and do in the area around the house. Surrounded by lush nature, olive groves and vineyards, the village enjoys peace and tranquillity yet is within easy access of popular Provençal tourist destinations.

Golfers can tee off at Golf d'Eguilles, 14km from the flat, while Côte Bleue beach, to the North West of Marseille, beckons with sunny swims in the Mediterranean just 35km away. Other activities near the apartment include water sports, fishing, horse riding, cycling, tennis and beautiful, scenic hikes. The nearest bar and supermarket are 500 metres away and the nearest restaurant is at 1km.

Don’t miss the stunning “calanques” between Marseille and Cassis (rent a kayak or hike to best explore these rock formations, dive into the turquoise sea and enjoy the beaches along the coastline), spend a day exploring the historic monuments and museums of the port town of Marseille (35km away) and sip coffee in one of Aix-en-Provence’s (at 16km) shady town squares. Also well worth a visit are the towns of Salon-de-Provence, at 18km, and Ensuès-la-Redonne, 29km away.
