La Ciotat crew accommodation
Zoe was gracious and welcoming. She organized a driver for us, and calmly rescheduled him when our arriving flight was delayed. She suggested restaurants and activities only when requested. She was very responsive to any questions we had. Highly recommend!!
Delightful home and lovely patio
The actual home is better than the pics! We had a wonderful stay in a well-appointed garden level home...lovely to have a generous Welcome basket and items like Olive oil and spices to use!
Zoe was really easy to communicate with and once we got the hang of the narrow driveway, it was a fun adventure!
La Ciotat turned out to exceed our expectations and the Sunday market was busy and inviting!
Overall lots of good memories and fun times!
Charming Apartment, Helpful Host, Great Spot
We stayed here for a week in August and had a really lovely time. Zoe was quick to respond to emails and very helpful when we were organising our travel plans, and, living close by, it was good to know that there was a contact point should anything come up. She met us on arrival and showed us around and had thoughtfully provided some toys for our young son to play with. Overall, she helped to make the holiday a very happy experience.
The photos of the apartment are very accurate and there is plenty of space for a family. Everything was beautifully presented and clean and we enjoyed our time there enormously. The apartment is close to all the amenities one might need and a 10-minute walk both to the beach and the centre of town. La Ciotat is a very lovely spot and we loved the quiet pace of life and the un-touristy feel. There are lots of restaurants to choose between and it's very handily placed for day trips to Marseille or Aix-en-Provence. Our big tip to anyone staying here though is to take a day-trip to the island of Embiez, a beautifully unspoiled, tiny island that you can walk end to end in an afternoon and find some excellent spots for paddling or swimming. Well worth a visit.
Thanks to Zoe and family for making our stay such a good one and we hope to be able to come back soon.
Thank you for such a lovely review! It was a pleasure to meet you and your family Daniel. Please come back to La Ciotat anytime.
Gorgeous Place with Amazing Hosts!
I have stayed in hundreds of hotels and vacation rentals but have never had such a top notch customer service experience like we did at Zoe's place. Her and her family were so very welcoming and helpful. From recommending wineries to help us navigate the medical system when our son was ill, she really stepped up and made us feel like part of the family!
Their suite is the perfect mix of modern amenities with French charm. There are elements that make you feel the history of french interior design while also having satellite TV and a microwave! The back patio and outdoor dining table are marvelous for watching the sunset and hearing the birds. The apartment is sparkling clean, extremely well organized and prepared for guests and has all the comforts you need! The rooms are big, well lit, have comfy beds, soft pillows and linens and fans to help keep you cool.
The best part is the location. The suite is walking distance to the beaches, grocery stores, weekly markets and stores, the old town, port and more! The great part is it is just far enough away from the hustle and bustle that it isn't too loud. You feel like you are in the countryside but are just a few minutes away from everything you need.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Zoe's place. We felt at home with everything we needed. The hospitality was top notch. The suite was perfect. When we come back to La Cioatat in the future, we will definitely book this place again!!! I highly encourage you to book here when you come to La Ciotat!
Kent, you and your lovely family are welcome back anytime. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting you. We are truly grateful for the appreciation you showed whilst in La Ciotat of our holiday apartment, and now with your review.
Hope to see you all again sometime in the future.
La meilleure location que nous avons connu. Un appartement avec terrasse en "rez de chaussée" de maison charmant, spacieux, parfaitement décoré avec goût par les propriétaires. La sensation d'être chez soi dès notre arrivée. Nous avons découvert des prestations inhabibuelles, comme la mise à dispositon de serviettes de plage. Zoe Davies la propriétaire a des attentions d'accueil qui donnent au locataire la sensation d'être un invité. L'appartement est très bien placé à cinq minutes à pieds de tout , le marché, les supérettes, les plages, le port, le centre...
Merci Pascal pour vos mots. Je suis ravi que vous et votre famille aiment beaucoup notre appartement.
Revenez à La ciotat bientôt !!
Charming rental in a great location to explore
The property is wonderful-spacious, full of character, and beautifully decorated. Zoe and her family are so kind and helpful, providing great tips and recommendations. We stayed for 3 nights and felt the apartment was perfectly located for exploring the region-Cassis, Bandol, and even Saint Tropez. Would certainly recommend this place, especially in May when the area is still fairly quiet but weather is nice!
It was a pleasure to have you stay! Thank you so much for your lovely review. Come for longer next time...
Situated in the seaside town of La Ciotat, a popular French tourist resort for many years, with numerous beaches, restaurants and bars. The famous 'calanques' (coves) between La Ciotat and Marseille can be explored by frequent boat trips in the summer. Water sports including surfing and kite-boarding are popular activities as are cycling and fishing. The wine region of Bandol is just a short drive away, as are the other seaside towns of Bandol and Cassis. 30 minutes by car will take you to either Aix-en-Provence, famous for it's connection to artist Cezanne, or the bustling city of Marseille, the second biggest city in France. There are several theme parks located within a short drive, including Aqualand. La Ciotat has several smaller attractions for children and a fair during the summer holidays.
Other Activities: kite-boarding
