A Dream Holiday Location Not To Be Missed
Part of me wants to shout from the rooftops how great this place is and part of me wants to hide it and keep it as my guilty pleasure with the guarantee I'll be able to book again with no problem.
The first thing that strikes you is the panorama from the top of the hill where the house is situated. There is a stunning contrast between the vegetation, the Mediterranean in the background, the city of Marseille in the distance and the windy roads, beautiful buildings and rooftops nearby. There is an assault on the senses - the light, the warmth of the sunshine, the smell of the lavender and the sound of the cigales. Even before you discover the property, you meet Philippe and Veronique who are the most welcoming and accommodating couple you could wish to meet. Within 20 minutes of discovering the house and knowing how tired we were having driven 8 hours from Italy, Philippe was in my car and came shopping with me to the local hypermarket so that I could sort out catering, wouldn't get lost and could find my way around easily moving forward. That was very much appreciated as were a lot of other moments throughout the holiday. One of the great things is that Philippe and Veronique live across the road when Philippe's house is being rented out so if you have any questions, they are not far away.
The house itself is simply stunning. It is immaculately clean, stylishly furnished and well maintained. The kitchen is modern and well equipped as is the bathroom. The garden furniture is of a high standard for lounging or dining in the lush garden, overlooking the pool which is the focal point and truly beautiful day or night. From the garden you can see into the distance but you are not overlooked and the pool and garden are very private. This part of Allauch is a sleepy haven of peace and tranquility. There is a welcome shaded terrace on the first floor with access from the bedroom where you can enjoy spectacular views and wind down in the shade on a sunbed or a hammock.
Behind the house is the road to Notre Dame du Chateau which winds up to the summit to afford even better views of Marseille, the Mediterranean and the countryside of Marcel Pagnol.
The village is a short walk down from the house with a wide range of amenities. There is also the local church to admire with it's mosaic covered tower and the windmills that sit not far from the main street.
We had a great time :Great venue, great people and Marseille was a revelation. We will definitely return.
A gem in Marseille
"We loved it. Beautiful modern accommodation, kept immaculate and clean with a private pool and views all the way to the Mediterranean. Staying in Allauch is fantastic if you want a quiet village like ambience just a stones throw to Marseille. It was so nice to return after a day looking around the city to fall into the pool and relax on the comfortable deck chairs in the evening sun."

"Staying here was a joy from start to finish. The accommodation on two floors is of a high standard, modern yet welcoming, beautifully decorated, tastefully furnished and very well equipped. The pool and two large terraces are great, with high quality outdoor furniture. The photos do not really show just how special this place is.
The position overlooking the village, with a distant view of the sea across Marseille, is spectacular.
Philippe gave us a great reception, looked after us extremely well during our stay and has an English sense of humour!
Excellent value - do not hesitate to book it. Like us, you will not want to leave.
The Balinese massage offered by Philippe was wonderful, extremely calming and relaxing. The next day you feel revitalised with renewed energy. It was very fairly priced too for a full 90 minute treatment.

"The house was excellent and everything was to a very high specification. We had everything we needed, including a very well equipped kitchen, speakers which we could plug our ipod into and wifi so we could plan our day trips. With the two terraces and the pool you would never need to leave! The view was also spectacular, and the village which the house is in is very charming. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to anyone."
un havre de paix en Provence
Chez Philippe et Véronique, un petit paradis.
La maison, située en haut du vieux village d'Allauch dispose d'une situation idéale: le calme des collines environnantes, la splendeur du paysage dont la vue porte sur Marseille et la Méditerranée. Au milieu d'un petit jardin pittoresque, disposant d'une piscine privée, la maison offre un excellent niveau de confort et d'équipement et une parfaite intimité. Point fort pour nous, la terrasse aménagée à l'étage qui permet de contempler le port de Marseille.
Le village est lui aussi pittoresque et invite à la flânerie. De très beaux départs de randonnées juste derrière la maison dans les collines de Pagnol. Un accès facile aux curiosités culturelles que ce soit Marseille, Cassis ou Aix en Provence.
Enfin Philippe et Véronique sont des hôtes charmants et disponibles, leur rencontre fait partie du plaisir du séjour.
Pour toutes ces raisons nous recommandons cette location tout en espérant qu'elle ne devienne pas trop populaire afin de pouvoir y séjourner à nouveau l'année prochaine.
A.S. et J. Martel, Pas de Calais. Séjour du 1/8/ 2015 au 8/8/2015
Un petit coin de paradis.
Il s'agit de notre quatrième séjour au Paradou. Séjour tout aussi merveilleux que les précédents. Cette villa est devenue notre paradis, outre l'accueil sans pareil de Philippe et Véronique, c'est le lieu idéal pour se ressourcer et recharger les batteries. La villa et ses ondes bienfaitrices invitent à la sérénité. Le confort y est total, avec la piscine ombragée et la chambre climatisée. Outre cela, le village d'Allauch offre des ballades délicieuses dans un décor on ne peut plus charmant. Nous ne pouvons plus nous passer de ces parenthèses enchantées.
