French Riviera holiday villa rental – Newly refurbished to the highest standards, Pierres et Pins is a delightful family villa, ideally situated on the hills facing the Bay of La Ciotat, along the stretch of coast between Saint-Cyr-sur- Mer and Cassis.
Thanks to its layout where all the rooms are arranged over one floor, this villa lends itself to easy and comfortable living with very large open-plan spaces full of light, and sliding doors to access the extensive teak terrace. Sail canopies and tall pine trees provide pleasant shade over the outdoor seating and dining areas, where guests can enjoy al fresco dinners and spectacular sea views.
A holiday at this villa is particularly recommended for sea lovers who will have the opportunity to explore Cassis and its amazing Mediterranean coastline, known as Les Calanques. Striking views can be enjoyed from the clifftops overhanging deep narrow creeks, which hide charming coves and secluded beaches. Cassis Bay is a great place for snorkelling, scuba diving and sailing, while the old port of Cassis bustles with fishing boats, visitors, shops and excellent seafood restaurants serving the catch of the day. Nearby Bandol is a charming town, known as the Ville Tranquille and, a little further along the coast, Sanary-sur-Mer has a fabulous, bustling promenade lined with cafes and a colourful harbour.
I love this house with its cool, uncluttered and slightly retro look, and the terraces and pool area in wooden decking. For a holiday in this part of Southern France, the location is really great. You have the option of going to the beach or staying at home by the pool with the sea view, if you prefer. There is a cool modern kitchen in the villa but if you decide to give cooking a miss, just two miles away you have the Medieval village of Ceyreste with the restaurant La Table des Maistres, recently refurbished and a must to visit. The chef Giuseppe will serve you wonderful food. La Ciotat and Cassis down the road have lots of cosy restaurants and, of course, there are the famous Calanques (cliffs) with lovely small beaches.
