My wife and I returned to this part of France after 15 years. What a change! La Ciotat has grown up! Valerie and Guy have a really fun place and keep a tight ship. The room on the first floor was spacious and clean. The large bath dedicated to the room is across the first floor stair landing with a... More

We couldn't have picked a nicer place to stay in La Ciotat located just a short walk away from the harbor. Valerie was very welcoming and comfortable to be with. She was helpful when it came to exploring on foot as we did not have a vehicle. Her guidance ensured that we had many wonderful experiences during our stay including... More

Took my oldest Son to celebrate completion of his GCSE exams and what a great few days we had. The B&B was absolutely excellent and the owner could not have been more welcoming despite the fact that we caused a few problems arriving late due to a train strike. Breakfast (I recommend the homemade yogurt) was perfect and the pastries... More

Our family of six, we spent two nights and occupied two rooms, one on the ground floor and one on the first floor. The rooms were beautifully decorated and clean. The beds were very comfortable. Valerie, our host, is such a friendly and helpful B&B owner. Her breakfast was the best with a table full of fresh French pastries, bread,... More

We stayed 2 nights with Valerie and Guy in Sept, and really loved it. Our rooms were clean, quiet, and creatively decorated. Breakfast was perfect, with Valerie's homemade yogurt included! The house is about a block from the water and they were able to recommend (and book) some fantastic restaurants. They went out of their way to help us in... More

After 3 exceptional weeks in France, we give the jeweled crown of FANTASTIC to Le Rayon Vert of la Ciotat on the Cote d'Azur. Valerie and Guy are DELIGHTFUL hosts. They are "real" people w/ a clean, cozy B & B on a quiet street only one block from the quaint harbor, a superb location. Both rooms are on the... More

My family of five adults stayed at this wonderful bed and breakfast. It was my parents first time traveling out of the United States and Valerie was the most helpful host. Breakfasts were good, very french style. She recommended restaurants and helped us plan our daily activities. Both rooms were very large and tastefully decorated. We loved our stay here... More

What a great place for a break! Valerie the owner, gave us great advice about where to park our car, literally next door to their B&B. 25€ for a week's parking! After a warm welcome we discovered our gorgeous ( and very big!) room with a lovely ensuite bathroom. The house itself is beautiful and it was lovely being so... More

Spacious and clean room, tastefully decorated in a house located on a pedestrain road in the city center (parking can be problematic). The only thing that sort of ruined the great atmosphere was the owner, who is not really charming and didn't provide many useful tips. She was about to leave for dinner when we crossed her at the front... More
