In 2018, Laurence, a mother of 7 children and active grandmother moved into this beautiful, late 19th century bourgeois building, ideally located in the heart of the historic centre. Having lived a busy and eventful life, full of twists and turns and travels, she was seduced by La Ciotat.
“It’s a town on a human scale, welcoming, lively all year round, attractive with its characteristic old port, its long sea-front promenade, its beaches, its calanques, or coves, its varied cultural and sporting activities, the proximity of Marseille, Aix and Toulon. A town in the throes of change, looking to the future but which knows how to preserve its past. Everything is done on foot”
“I was looking for an apartment in the town centre with plenty of space, quiet, not overlooked, two-sided, and bright. As soon as I entered the building, I fell in love with it. It was very different from others I had visited so far. Behind a heavy old door, we discovered a beautiful staircase with patterned tiling and old-fashioned floor tiles. This building is full of soul and history. I recently discovered that one of the most emblematic painters in La Ciotat, Gilbert Ganteaume, lived here. You can see some of his works at the Notre Dame church overlooking the Old Port”
Former owner of a magnificent Dauphine stately home at the foot of the Vercors mountains, « Le Domaine de la Chastellière », a family residence transformed into a guest house over the past 10 years, Laurence now welcomes you to La Ciotat in a charming apartment where you will sometimes feel the soul of the old mansion.
