La Ciotat by Les Marseillaises
With its rocky creeks, the revival of its town centre and its maritime history, La Ciotat is a destination that combines the art of living, a natural landscape and new locations that are overflowing with history. In the town that has can be considered the birthplace of cinema and pétanque, you are sure to find some very good reasons for visiting! We are talking about La Ciotat, this typical Mediterranean town with magnificent beaches and creeks, where the noise of the shipbuilding yards ceased to exist a few years ago. Today, there is not only the coastal scenery to enjoy there is also the renovation of the ancient district of La Ciotat – or the "Coeur de ville" (the heart of the town) as it is lovingly known by the locals. We suggest visiting some of the new shops as well as some of the beaches and creeks.
