hmm, should I really give away this secret? I discovered le Marijas on a trip to Provence in 2009 and have been back every year since. Ideally situated in a triangle between Marseille, Aix-en-Provence and the beaches of Cassis, this little bed and breakfast exudes tranquility and charm. All the best sights are accessible within a 20-40min drive. There are only 5 bedrooms, all unique and tastefully furnished, each with an en-suite bathroom, so you will never feel crowded. The charming hosts Anne-Sophie and her husband Michel will make you feel at home from the minute you arrive - whether taking an aperitif before dinner, enjoying a wonderful breakfast (fresh croissants, freshly sqeezed orange juice, home-made jams!) on the patio or playing a game of petanque in the garden. Anne-Sophie is very knowledgable and can give you expert advice on where to eat (she will also help you with reservations), were to buy the best cheese, where to shop away from the tourist crowds and which sights to see. You will also meet interesting and friendly fellow guests from all over.
The garden is lovely and the large pool invites lounging and relaxation. If you like to hike or jog you can just run out the back of the property where there are many trails through the adjacent forest. In short, if you prefer small, personal and unique hotels le Marijas is superb. Chances are, you will find yourself returning time and again and extending your stay every time....!
