About our home

Our house is very easy to live in and with all modern equipments, on one floor except for two sleeping rooms on the first floor. It has a large terrace communicating with the kitchen and living room oriented south but with tree shade in the summer (very important here as sunny weather is not an issue but a fact), with a large and deep heatable outside pool fully secured for children (fences, sonar movement detector, top) with a small sauna inside the fences. The dining room, living room with home cinema and kitchen are in a semi open space; in the summertime we live on the terrace near the pool. On the main floor, separated from the main living space, we have two children rooms with 90 cm wide beds, one room with a double bed, and a playroom with TV and a foldable 140 cm wide couch . In this same room a mezzanine with ladder access with a second 140 cm wide bed, for a teenager or young adult. On the first floor, a master bedroom with a 160 cm wide bed, AC, office corner, shower room and adjacent baby room with a child single bed. Far into the back of our pine-forest-garden, a pergola (wide tent with mosquito net) in which it is possible to spend a night in the forest with an inflatable bed on the wooden floor inside the tent. Ping pong table under pine trees also, hammacks, .... we have an inflatable kayak to explore the coast. We try to be eco friendly with solar and photovoltaic pannels, veggie garden and compost.
We have a dog, an Australian Sheppard and cats who live mostly outside during the summer time but need to be fed.

More about us

  1. We are a relaxed family with three children aged 9, 7 and 4. we might travel with our nanny as well. Our house is safe for children and has all the necessary utilities for kids (bicycles toys ping pong and two neighbors aged 7 and 4 next door). Mother and father , in their forties, into medicine and software planning. we are lucky to be able to feel on vacation in our own house six months a year. We have exchanged four times in Ireland and the USA and it went really well. We will do our best to treat your house as we would like ours to be treated. We have a family volkswagen touran. As for the pets we would like to take our dog with us, who is nice and not aggressive in the least and accustumed to staying outside all the time and sleeping outside. Experience shows that it is difficult to have him babysat so we would like to bring him with us in your garden or leave him in the garden in our home. Because our children are still small we do not wish to go to a big city but rather to a cooler seaside or countryside location, thank you!

Where is it?


We live in the outskirts of Marseille, the capital of Provence on the seafront, second largest french city, in exceptionnal surroundings with a beautiful and still quiet view. Our garden is 5000 m2. the area is still quite rural with farms and is one of the last areas of marseille free from excessive urbanisation. Our house is at the end of a dead end small private road, dominating the pine tree landscape, with a view on the Sainte Baume mountain. We guarantee your tranquility in our home. Two friendly neighbors on each side (but with privacy). the pathes of a national reserve of hills dominating the Marseille bay pass Right next to the back of our garden, perfect for hiking. True Provence is all around us, and easily accessible by car, you can find Aix en Provence, Var and its beaches, famous Cassis and its southern fjords ("calanques") 20 minutes away with clear deep blue water, Lubéron, Camargue, the Verdon gorge and lake and springs, and farther away cote d'azur. Central down town Marseille (second biggest city in france) is of course 15 km away . Our house can offer easy access to Marseille and its bustling downtown and beaches, or a relaxed day near the pool, in the hamacs or in the hills in the greenery at walking distance. A small village is at a 5 minute walk with a small grocery and bakery store; a huge american style mall at a 10 minute drive, and highway access is 10 minutes away. Typical three-time -a -week Food Market in the small town nearby .
