Niolon is one
of the best-kept secrets of Provence: a village hidden away in the steep
rocky valleys, or calanques, on the Blue Coast just west of Marseille.
Niolon is tiny
but wonderfully diverse. If you like sports, you can scuba-dive, go
kayaking, snorkelling or fishing, hike, rock-climb or take a boat out
for the day. Food-lovers can pop over to the restaurant next door to
taste a typical Marseille bouillabaisse and local wines. For night life,
take a boat across the bay to buzzing Marseille. Or just relax in the
sun and enjoy the view.
Our two flats
are both ideally placed, high up where the view is best (the larger
apartment, Le Grand Bleu, looks out on to the Bay of Marseille), and
have been recently refurbished with luxury and taste.
