On the coast


There's no getting away from it, the coast is hot and crowded in August and beggars can't be choosers when it comes to finding a hotel at short notice. At first glance, basic facilities on the Vieux Port at La Ciotat seemed less than enticing. Rob reminded me (after I'd presented him with the fait accompli of the booking) that La Ciotat was the blot on the St Cyr bay marked by vast industrial port cranes.

But we arrived to find our rooms were a few steps away from this view...

 
...on this pretty street...




...I think you could say we struck lucky...

Un été chaud et enchanteur... Et, j'imagine, rempli des senteurs que tu sais si bien décrire.

Envie de me faire une petite visite ici : http://monddo.blogspot.fr/

A bientôt

You definitely struck lucky! I was trying to book a night in Cassis for the middle of September and everything was booked! September!!!

You were lucky and I hope you enjoyed it. We usually go on holiday in France out of season for that reason. Corsica again this year end of Sept.

Enjoy La Ciotat Deborah! I have just realised that I haven't been to the South of france for the whole summer. I am starting to miss it.
