La Côte Plage is located near Istres, in the heart of Provence.
This charming property is located directly on the north coast of the Etang de Berre.
Swimming pool, trampoline, ping-pong, boules area, etc. are at your disposal.
The Etang de Berre is the largest saltwater lake in Europe, also known as “the Sea of Berre”.
Via Le canal de Caronte at Martigues you will come directly to the Mediterranean Sea.
Surf boards and small boats can be taken free of charge to take full advantage of this huge inland sea.
If there is no Mistral, a sea breeze will be set up every afternoon.
Of course, you can also swim in the lake.
The young children who are not yet able to swim must always walk around with a life vest or wings and stay under the sight of a parent.
The grounds are not suitable for people who have difficulty walking, too irregular and with many small walls and stairs.
The car is essential, we are not well served by public transport.
If you want to come by plane it is very simple and relatively inexpensive. Marseille-Provence Airport is 35km away.
