Enjoy the best the South of France has to offer at this lovely Provencal house with swimming pool with a million dollar view of the Mediterranean sea near the Calanques of Cassis, the beaches of La Ciotat and the many delightful towns of Provence.

The space

The Ceyreston is a charming Provencal family home with a separate Guest Cottage and swimming pool located on a magnificent property overlooking the Mediterranean sea. The house is located in a very private and preserved/protected area in the hills above the Roman town of Ceyreste and the bustling seaside city of La Ciotat and its beaches.

The Main house features 3 bedrooms that sleep 6 people. 2 of the bedrooms are upstairs (a Master bedroom and a smaller bedroom) and 1 is in the basement/ground floor. Each bedroom has its own bathroom/shower. Each are configured differently. Note that there is only one bathtub in the house, which is in the large master bathroom upstairs. There are 2 toilets upstairs and one downstairs.

The Main House has a large open living room /dining room which includes a fireplace and flat screen television. The living room opens onto a long terrace overlooking the pool and beyond that, the sea. The terrace has a dining table that seats 8-10 people. The terrace also has a brand new barbeque. The kitchen is fully equipped and includes a microwave and dishwasher. There is a washer and dryer in the ground floor/basement.

The Guest Cottage includes 2 full size pull out beds each of which comfortably sleeps 1 person, although two children could fit on one bed. The Guest Cottage has its own bathroom and toilet and fully equipped modern kitchen, including fridge, washer and dishwasher. The Guest Cottage also has its own terrace and both indoor and outdoor dining areas.

Both the Main House and the Guest Cottage have wireless internet access and cable television, as well as air conditioning.

The magic of this house and its location is that it is both close to the beach and the myriad seaside towns of la Cote d'Azur as well as the many wonderful surrounding towns of Provence, yet it is extremely private and with its own million dollar view of the sea.

Guest access

Guests have access to the entire property and the pool during their stay.

The house is on an entirely private property and is accessed via a private road. There is ample parking space on the property on the estate.

The Ceyreston is located a good 60 minutes away from the Airport of Marignane in Marseilles. The cost of a taxi from the airport to the house is between 120 and 200 Euros.

The closest train station is that of La Ciotat, which is about 15 minutes from the house.

We recommend that guests rent a car for their stay, as the Ceyreston is located high on a hill above the seaside and a vehicle is necessary to access the house and in order to easily come and go.

Interaction with guests

The Owners will not be present in the area during your stay at Le Ceyreston, however you will be greeted by a property manager, Max, who lives a few houses down on the hill and will be available to assist with any issues.

The Owners can, however, be reached at any time during your stay via telephone and email and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

In the Main House living room as well as in the Guest Cottage, guests will find a drawer containing all sorts of useful information and many pamphlets regarding activities to do and places to visit in the surrounding areas, restaurant recommendations, ect...

Other things to note

A security deposit of 2000 Euros is required upon rental of the Ceyreston, plus 100 Euros for electricity, plus 350 Euros for the cleaning fee.

A copy of the renter's passport will be required at the time of the reservation.

Our host Marie-France was very helpful and answered all our questions promptly by email. She gave very good suggestions of where to shop and eat (we especially enjoyed her restaurant recommendations). The house and guest cottage were perfect for our big group (5 adults and 2 children) and both houses were comfortable and well equipped. We spent most of our stay by the pool, enjoying the stunning views of the unspoiled hills and the sea. We made occasional trips to the beach nearby and explored the Calanques around Cassis.
