la Cote Plage



In the late 1960s  my father  goes with a boat via rivers and canals to southern France.

So he comes on the Etang de Berre.. loses his heart to Provence and creates «La Côte Plage».

A wonderful place right on the water, on average 3000 Sun hours per year (Yes, Yes, really.. thanks to the famous Mistral!), what more could you want, I follow his example in 1981 and live now -together with my children Mike and Marc- also between the "cigales".


"La Cote Plage" is a charming private small resort in the heart of PROVENCE, 3km north of the attractive town "Istres', opposite the authentic fishing village of" Saint Chamas. " 

4 holiday houses in total, in the middle of nature, built against a hill, each with private terrace and stunning views over the Etang de Berre, the largest saltwater lake in Europe, which opens onto the Mediterranean Sea is at Martigues, also called "La Petite Venise".

 Swimming pool, trampoline, ping pong, barbecue, etc. are available to you and your children.

Of course you can also swim in the lake. You can even take your windsurfboards or your own boats.

For golf lovers, beautiful golf courses are nearby.
