Property type villa
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

50 sq.m villa in the heart of a green setting

For your holidays in Provence, we will welcome you in our charming gite. Ideally located between the Marseille and Cassis town centre, we rent out all year long. In the surroundings, you will find a large variety of cultural and sporting leisure activities for all tastes. For those who prefer to stay at home, the pool and its luxuriant garden will offer you a well-deserved rest.

The house is in the middle of a luxuriant garden of 1 000 sq.m, in the heart of Marseille and in a quiet place!

You can enjoy our beautiful beaches (Cassis, Saint-Cyr) or the crystal clear water in the (coves) calanques. You will discover the beauty of Provence while walking around the Sainte-Victoire, the Sainte Baume or the Hills of Garlaban.

Finally, while sipping a Pastis, you will end your day under the shade of a plane tree in a small Provencal village (Gémenos, Allauch Le Castellet, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, Les Baux-de-Provence). And if you have enough energy left, you can try the 'Pétanque'!

You won't miss either the Provencal cuisine and the discovery of our world renowned wines and why not visiting some vineyards.

You will also have the privilege to attend many theatre festivals (Aix-en-Provence, Avignon) and music festivals (Voix du Gaou, La Roque-d'Anthéron).

In one word, our villa offers you rest in a green setting but also many activities for all tastes and all ages.

When you need to buy food, you can do grocery shopping by foot. For your leisure purchases, the mall of La Valentine is 5 min away by car; there you will also find a cinema and restaurants. You can reach the town centre (tram stop 100m away) in 20 min, but also Cassis, Aix-en-Provence, Pagnol's landscapes, Marseille's Calanques by quick access...and let's not forget the training centre at the Olympique de Marseille (15 min away by foot) and the Golf courses of La Salette and Allauch 10 min away by car. This house is also 15 min away from the hydrotherapeutic cure centre of Camoins-les-Bains. The owners' villa is nearby.

The pool is closed on Sunday and shared with the owner.

A catalogue containing all the useful information for your stay is available. Here, cultural, sporting and discovery activities will be offered. You will see that the region offers all sorts of activities and outings, for all tastes and all ages.

A lovely place ideal for families with young kids

  • 4 of 5

Ideal for young families secure clean and with very helpful owners on site. Car parking outside the property but good value for money and access to all areas around Marseille. Cassis worth the visit and use tram underground for the old port. Cheers Deano

What a lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here, and had the most wonderful relaxing time! Not least because the owners are really lovely, helpful and friendly people, and had planned and thought through every little detail in the property so that you had everything you could possibly need. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and the peaceful surroundings. Loads of convenient facilities nearby, with good access by public transport to Marseilles, and by road to the lovely Cassis and the Calanques. Nicolas (who speaks pretty good English too) was very helpful, giving us plenty of really useful advice about the good things to see and do and how best to get there as well as the things to avoid. There were also loads of guides and useful printouts of all the things we could need for our holiday in Marseille.

The place is really well equipped with a very good quality kitchen/diner and shower room. Perfect for a couple (like us) or a small family. Very comfy bed too!

We got a lot more than we expected out of this property and would love to stay here again. We would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful place to stay in Marseille.

Excellent gite, lovely garden and pool.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week here, the weather was excellent and we were really impressed with the gite, the pool and garden. Marseille and the area also have a lot to offer. Coupled with the weather this was a lovely place to stay.

The gite is thoughtfully designed, well laid out and very well equipped. We were there as a couple and so had plenty of room and were glad to find it lived up and even exceeded the photographs online.

The pool and garden are lovely, a real sun trap and not overlooked other than from the owner's home. It is a really peaceful and relaxing place to enjoy the sunny weather.

The owners are lovely, very happy to help if required and great for advice on places to visit and things to do.

Marseille is currently the European City of Culture and therefore has been going through a lot of change. There are plenty of places to visit and it is a great place to be based to explore further afield in Provence. We didn't hire a car and got about easily by public transport which is good value and has great links to further afield.

Overall we would recommend that you seriously consider this a somewhere to base your stay for a sunny holiday.

One week in Marseille

  • 5 of 5

A very nice apartment, new, clean and perfectly equiped, with a wonderful garden and pool. The location is great: Quiet nights but a short way to the city center (15 minutes by tram); tram stop and supermarket only 2 minutes walking. Very friendly owners who provide a lot of maps and informations in the apartment.

excellent family appartment

  • 5 of 5

We are very pleased with our stay in this modern, fully equipped and perfectly clean apartment, in excellent position for exploring the city and visiting surrounding area. Our hosts were very kind, providing all possible information to make our stay more comfortable and better.

We were traveling with two kids, and apartment was perfect fit for our family.

We were not lucky with the weather, so we could not use beautiful pool and the garden, but our impressions are so good that we will have to return to this beautiful place.

Many thanks to Nicolas and his wife for all the kindness, best regards from Milan!
