Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Roquevaire - La Safranade

Haven in natural setting with splendid view and swimming pool

Charming place in Provence!

Come for a pleasant change of scene in the heart of Pagnol's Provençal lands. Enjoy the quiet setting and the large 10x5 m covered swimming pool, which is shared between the guests and the owners.

From the hilltop terrace, you will be offered a splendid view of Marcel Pagnol's lands and the Garlaban Massif.

You will be living in the heart of Provence, among the olive trees, the vineyards, the cherry trees, the lavender, and the thyme.

2 very comfortable and recently refurnished rooms on the same level (sleeps 4). Reversible air-conditioning system. Fitted kitchen (with washing machine and dishwasher). Very large shower.

The house includes a large flowered terrace and parking places in a closed building.

The 5,500 sq.m garden was built over several levels separated by restanques (dry-stone walls). It offers several shaded areas where you can sit and enjoy the splendid view.

It is the perfect starting point to discover the Riviera or go to festivals; you will enjoy relaxing by the swimming pool in the heart of the Provençal nature. It is also perfectly appropriate for children.

All the shops are less than 5 minutes away.

You will be living very close to Roquevaire and Aubagne, which are located between the old harbour of Marseille, Aix-en-Provence, Cassis, many beaches and Provençal villages, many festival sites, and the Sainte-Victoire mountain.

We will help you make your choice among the large range of available sites and activities.

New since summer 2012: the Calanques National Park.

The Park was aimed at insuring a better protection of the Calanques (valleys carved by rivers and flooded by the sea) and investing more in its preservation. The Calanques National Park is the first peri-urban National Park in Europe.

Indeed, the Calanques are unique in the whole world. They consist of limestone cliffs, and host a very rich biodiversity; for instance, the biggest lizard in Europe (the ocelatted lizard) lives there. You will also find many remains of early Human existence, for example the prehistoric paintings in the Cosquer cave.

However, these lands are threatened by the high number of visitors (coming whether through lands or sea), by the water contamination, by the fires, and by the growing urbanization. The cliffs, the Aleppo pines, the evergreen oaks, the marine biodiversity, the coves, the harbours, and the huts must be preserved for the future generations.

The Calanques National Park is the only French park that includes both a marine and a land part. It stands as the perfect example of nature protection near a conurbation gathering more than a million of inhabitants. It aims at preserving the environment while letting people access the area. The goal is to prevent fires, protect the fauna and flora, welcome visitors and teach them eco-friendly behaviours through educational activities.

The entrance is free and the access to some parts of the park will be regulated while making sure not to interfere with the practice of hiking, horse riding, biking, or climbing.

About Gilda et Bernard

We have settle in the southern France a few years ago and we yearn for a great quality of life and enriching exchanges.

We want to develop cordial and even friendly ties with our guests and make sure we all benefit from these encounters.

Gilda et Bernard purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Gilda et Bernard chose Marseille area

We fell in love with this large Provençal house and even more with its location on the top of a hill where we can enjoy the beautiful view of Pagnol's lands and the Sainte-Beaume massif.

The idea of accommodating guests seeking the sun and a change of scene came very naturally to us.

What makes this cottage unique

You will be able to fully enjoy your holidays in the quiet place with a pool and a splendid view of the area. You will experience a real change of scene in this very unique house.

You will be living close to Cassis, Aix-en-Provence, Marseille, the beaches, and the Calanques; there are activities for all tastes.

Lovely house, close to all the sights!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a fantastic holiday at La Safranade with my sister and her family. Bernard and Gilda were wonderful hosts, very hospitable and gave us great advice and local recommendations. The house itself was very well equipped, tastefully decorated, and impeccably clean, as well as had a lovely terrace overlooking the Garlaban (we dined and breakfasted al fresco almost every day!). The swimming pool was great for the children - the cover acted like a greenhouse and kept the water nice and warm. All the sights are within a half hour drive (Marseille, Cassis, La Ciotat, the Calanques), so it was great to see the tourist sights and retreat back to the countryside for some peace and quiet. La Safranade was just perfect for our visit to Provence - we had a family holiday there we will never forget. Merci beaucoup, Bernard et Gilda!

Superbe région

  • 5 of 5

Un très bel appartement que nous recommandons vivement !! C'est un lieu idéal pour passer de jolies vacances ! Bernard nous a donné quelques conseils sur les visites. Tout est conforme à sa description. Très belle location avec toutes les commodités (lave-linge et lave-vaisselle). Les photos correspondent vraiment.

De plus, les propriétaires sont très sympathiques et serviables.

Rien à redire.

Wunderbare Wohnung, schöner Garten, sehr freundliche Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zu Viert in dieser entzückenden Wohnung und haben uns sofort zu Hause gefühlt. Genügend Platz, eine schöne Einrichtung (Modernes mit Altem gemischt) und eine dazugehörige separate Terrasse zeichnen diese Wohnung aus. Den überdachten Pool konnten unsere Kinder noch bis über Mitte Oktober hinaus nutzen. Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit und wir konnten uns mit ihnen auch auf Deutsch (Gilda) oder Englisch (Bernard) verständigen. Das Haus befindet sich in Hanglage und ist über eine sehr schmale Straße zu erreichen. Es ist eine ländlich-ruhige Wohngegend - ideal für einen entspannten Urlaub.

Séjour d'une semaine très agréable, au calme, bercé par le chant des cigales, avec vues magnifiques sur les paysages de la Provence.

Accueil très sympathique des propriétaires, toujours prêts à rendre service, mais très discrets.

Gite spacieux, meublé avec goût, avec tout le confort moderne, et bien conforme à l'annonce, idéalement situé pour bien visiter cette belle région.

Avons bien profité également de la piscine très agréable et sécurisée.

Merci à Gilda et Bernard.

Tolle gepflegte Anlage, Super Lage, herzliche und hilfsbereite Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

Es waren zwei tolle Wochen in denen wir die Gastfreundschaft von Gilda und Bernard genießen konnten. Die sehr gepflegte und schöne Anlage,!

Der Pool und das tolle Wetter trugen zusätzlich dazu bei, dass wir unsere zwei Wochen sehr genossen haben. Durch Ihre Tipps war es uns möglich, neben den Reiseführerempfehlungen, weitere tolle Tagesziele zu erkunden. Gerne kommen wir wieder auf dieses Urlaubsziel zurück!

Super schöne Zeit, einfach klasse volle Punktzahl.
