Overview

Roquevaire Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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 2012

Why Gilda et Bernard chose Roquevaire

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.

Traumhafter Urlaub in Frankreich

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen wunderschönen und erholsamen Aufenthalt in Roquevaire bei unserer Gastfamilie! Vor allem aber die netten Gastgeber unserer Ferienwohnung haben uns mit einem ganz besonderem Charme beeindruckt und waren zu jeder Zeit äußerst gastfreundlich und stand mit jedem Rat zur Seite! Die Unterkunft hat unseren Urlaub in Frankreich perfekt gemacht; das Interieur war mit Liebe zum Detail und mit allem notwendigen Equipment eingerichtet. Das Anwesen befand sich an einem traumhaften Ort mit vielen Ruheoasen, einem sehr schönem Pool und einem traumhaften Ausblick zum Garlaban! Jeden Abend haben wir den Grill/Plancha mit Gemüse und/oder Fleisch aus der Region bestückt und konnten beim Abendessen den traumhaften Blick zum Gebirge Marcel Pagnol genießen! Schöne Ausflugsziele wie die Calanques und Cassis etc. waren in Kürze zu erreichen, wie auch diverse Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Die Unterkunft würden wir immer gern weiterempfehlen!

Auf den Spuren Marcel Pagnols

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten eine wunderbare Woche im "La Safranade" und fanden alles noch schöner, als auf den Bildern und in der Beschreibung angegeben. Gilda und Bernard waren tolle Gastgeber, und Bernard hat uns mit vielen hilfreichen Tipps sowie Info- und Kartenmaterial versorgt. Das galt besonders für seine Wegbeschreibung nach Marseille, wo wir direkt im "Vieux Port" problemlos in einem sicheren Parkhaus unseren Wagen abstellen konnten, um von dort die Stadt zu Fuß zu erkunden.

Über Ausstattung und Komfort der Wohnung, sowie den herrlich warmen Pool ist ja in anderen Bewertungen alles gesagt worden, was uns zudem besonders gut gefallen hat, war das sehr bequeme Bett mit einem richtigen, vernünftig bezogenen Oberbett. Im Übrigen fanden wir es weder besonders schwer, das Haus zu finden, noch war die Zufahrt problematisch. Wozu gibt es schließlich Navigationssysteme? Den Weg auf den Berg hat sogar unser kleiner "Luigi" (Fiat 500) geschafft. Wir kommen wieder!

Un havre de paix

  • 5 of 5

A notre arrivée, nous devinons que cette semaine restera longtemps graver dans notre mémoire

La Safranade dégage un doux parfum de sérénité, le temps s’arrête…

Notre appartement bénéficiait d’un très bel agencement et le must, une terrasse avec une vue exceptionnelle sur les montagnes de Pagnol !!

Quel bonheur de prendre les petits déjeuners et les repas face au mont Garlaban

La région est magnifique, de belles ballades à faire tout autour de la villa, la ville d’Aunagne et son marche typique et un bord de mer qui vous tend les bras (Cassis et ses calanques, Bandol, La ciotat)

Enfin, un grand merci à Gilda et Bernard pour leur accueil très chaleureux à notre arrivée après 8h de route, nous avons apprécié leurs bons conseils et leur disponibilité

Nous reviendrons !

Stadtnahes Paradies im Grünen

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben nun schon zum zweiten Mal zwei Wochen Ferien bei Gilda und Bernard in der Safranade verbracht und uns bereits fürs nächste Jahr wieder angemelde. Die Kinder (6 und 9) schätzen den riesigen waldähnlichen Garten und den warmen Pool. Wir, die Eltern, freuen uns über die Ruhe des Anwesens, Gildas und Bernards Gastfreundschaft und die Lage: ländlich, doch Marseille und Aix-en-Provence sowie herrliche Strände liegen vor der Tür. Besser geht's nicht!
