This is a beautifully refurbished apartment that has been well thought out for guest's enjoyment. It has a wide range of useful facilities within the apartment and provided us with a very pleasant stay. It is in a perfect location for La Ciotat and also with easy access to the road network. There is a stunning view over the Bay from the terrace, which gets the sun all day. The only negative aspect was the garage. Although advertised as "Duplec avec garage" it is an incredibly small garage, not wide enough for our SUV and not high enough for a car with a roof rack. It is also on a busy one way street with difficult access. This should have been highlighted in the advert as we arrived with a kayak on top of the car!! A few things that may surprise English guests: once you have booked you will be sent a 10 page contract (in French) to sign and return, as you have already paid for the apartment there is not much choice about this. On arrival there is a 4 page inventory (in French) of about 240 items in the apartment, that you have to sign, with no possibility of checking it. Finally bedding and towels are not provided. So 5* for the apartment and 2* for the garage and contractual aspects.
