Unique location by the seaside for this traditional villa, with a large garden and direct access to the beach, close to the centre of La Ciotat. Unobstructed views. Full of charm. Sleeps 11.
Sea as far as the eye can see, the sun reflected off the waves, the smell of Mediterranean pines, children playing in the garden – this little holiday paradise is only a short distance from the centre of La Ciotat. This beautiful proud house has a familiar scent, like childhood nostalgia, and a forgotten, relaxed, rhythm of life.
Situated directly on the shore, near the Cap des Moulins, the house has private access to the water, down to the rocks sloping towards the sea, where you can swim at the feet of the villa.
The view from the terrace is spectacular, and the large table installed here lets you eat in a unique setting. The large living room opens onto the terrace. It is bathed in light, with exposed beams, and is decorated in the nautical style. There is a mezzanine with a TV corner.
The tiled kitchen brings to mind the large mansions of yesteryear with its scullery, but it is perfectly kitted out with ceramic hob, oven, and microwave.
The beautiful master suite is on the garden level, has an exceptional sea view, and is equipped with a bathroom with an antique-style bath. There is also a small bedroom with a single bed. The other four bedrooms are on the first floor – one large bedroom with a sublime sea view and a double bed, another with two single beds that can be made into a large double, a third with two single beds, and the fourth with bunk beds for children. Each bedroom has a sink. They share a bathroom with a shower. There are separate WCs on the ground floor.
One of the assets of this villa is the large terraced garden, pleasantly shaded by coastal pines, and bordered by aloes. There are benches to enjoy the view, and a portico with swings for children. As mentioned, this is a real mini paradise, just waiting for you!
Please note: a caretaker lives on the property, with no view on the villa or the garden. He oversees the maintenance of the property.
Linens, sheets, and towels are provided. The beds will be freshly made on arrival. Weekly housekeeping is included with the rental, along with cleaning on departure. You will find toiletries in the bathrooms and a gourmet food basket in the kitchen.
The villa is situated in a cul-de-sac close to Ciotat Port and beach. There are many shops and restaurants nearby at your disposal. Found between Provence and Cote d’Azur, 20 minutes from Marseille, La Ciotat is a beach resort that has managed to stay authentic! Six kilometres from the sandy beach, the natural decor of La Ciotat comes from two majestic coves – Mugel and Figuerolles –sheltered inlets; the Ile Verte several strokes from the coast; and Mugel Park with its rare vegetation.
In many places, chapels and antique doors bear witness to a rich and cultured past in this old town, linking history and heritage. The museum offers a wonderful trip through history.
All sporting activities are practiced here – from water sports in all possible forms, discovering nature and hikes, to champion fishermen and car rallies.
Large festivals and cultural demonstrations are available all year round on eclectic themes such as music, jazz, cinema, and painting… The Provencal artistic markets and small shops offer their wares to visitors.
