About Mrs Sandie Boll

English owner, we bought this property 18 months ago, have renovated most of it and will continue to finish it over the next couple of years. The garden will be improved during the winter. This area, where the sun shines every day is the perfect holiday and retirement area.

Mrs Sandie Boll purchased this villa in 2013

Why Mrs Sandie Boll chose Ceyreste

We know the area well and fell in love with the almost rural quality of this cute villa at the very end of a small lane, surrounded by oleanders, olive and almond trees.

What makes this villa unique

Quiet, pretty private swimming pool with large paved area surrounding it. Within very easy reach of shops, supermarkets, beaches, Provençal markets, trains, planes and motorways.

Great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a really lovely holiday in Ceyreste - we have 3 children ranging in age from 6-14 & it worked well for everyone. We drove down from London via the aptly named AutoRoute de Soleil (14 hours door to door!) and Gemma came to meet us. The house was spotless and the beds made up (I was very grateful as we arrived at 10pm!). Gemma was very helpful and showed us round and how the pool cover worked etc. The house was very well equipped, comfortable and had everything we needed (including a fab shower!) We all loved the pool - it's a great size too. There's plenty of garden furniture around for different times of the day & even though parts of the garden are still a work in progress, there are already lots of lovely plants to water - very therapeutic! We walked into the village of Ceyreste pretty much every day (5 mins down, 10 back!) and bought bread, croissants, fruit, eggs or went to the pizza place (very good pizza & they do takeaway too) next to the bar. There was also an open air screening of a James Bond movie in the village square one evening. Supermarkets nearby are the big Carrefour in La Ciotat or there is a smaller Casino on the road up to Ceyreste. Nearby were beaches at La Ciotat (very busy) and St Cyr Sur Mer (we preferred and watersports too) as well as lovely Cassis where as well as going to the small beach and eating out there several times, we took a boat ride one evening to swim in the Calanques which is a must do. We visited Aix en Provence and also went to Aqualand at St Cyr Sur Mer which was brilliant fun and enjoyed by all ages!! The weather was blissful apart from a couple of windy days (we were quite grateful!). The Wifi is brilliant - much better than ours in the UK. Our only request would be a note of emergency numbers (doctors, nearest hospital, etc) & generally some more info on the area, restaurant recommendations etc. Also air-con in all the bedrooms would be truly wonderful!

We'd definitely recommend it and would love to go back & explore this beautiful area further - we had a very peaceful and relaxing two weeks - thank you so much!

Vacances en Famille

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes restés 15 jours avec nos enfants à 6 ... Nous avons passé un excellent séjour avec tout le confort souhaitable. Maison dotée de climatisation ce qui est très appréciable en haute saison

L'accueil a été parfait et nous remercions Gemma pour sa disponibilité et gentillesse. Adresse à retenir pour passer un séjour à la fois proche et en retrait des animations estivales. Nathalie

Merci pour ces formidables vacances!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué cette villa en septembre 2015 en famille et nous y avons passé de merveilleuses vacances! La maison est toute équipée ce qui est un vrai luxe, tout est très confortable et on s'y sent très vite à l'aise. Les chambres sont munies d'oreillers et draps en quantité, les matelas sont très confortables. L'extérieur est très appréciable, la piscine est vraiment super; longue, propre et profonde. La villa est vraiment très bien placée; loin de toute incommodité et proche des plus beaux coins (La Ciotat, Les calanques, le port,...).

La personne qui nous a accueillie (Gemma) est vraiment très à l'écoute et n'hésite pas à venir dans l'heure si il y a le moindre problème. Nous recommanderions cette villa à un ami et serions enchantés de la louer de nouveau durant l'été 2016. N'hésitez pas!

Superbe maison pour passer des vacances paisibles et au calme en famille et/ou entre amis, située dans un petit village à 5/10 minutes du bord de mer.

La maison est très bien équipée, tout est à disposition, les commerces sont proches, donc je vous recommande ce lieu pour vos vacances sans hésiter, de plus nous avons été accueillis et guidés par une personne très sympathique et serviable. N'hésitez pas.

Très belle location !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine de vacances superbe dans cette belle région ! La maison "des lauriers" est très confortable, agréable et fonctionnelle. Nous avons aussi apprécié la climatisation car il faisait très chaud. Le linge de maison et les serviettes de piscine en grand nombre sont un point positif . Le jardin fleuri et arboré ainsi que l'espace piscine sont magnifiques et il fait bon s'y reposer car l'endroit est très calme . Le charme du Sud !!!! Nous aurions aimé rester bien plus longtemps . Merci pour ce bel endroit qui nous a permis de passer d'excellentes vacances en famille. Le village très agréable est proche de toutes les commodités .

Mme Boll a été très à l'écoute et la personne qui nous a accueilli très aimable .

En conclusion n'hésitez pas si vous recherchez une location calme dans la région!
