Facing the Mediterranean Sea and overlooking the entire harbor of Marseille, Sausset-les-Pins is one of the seaside resorts of the Côte Bleue.

Accessible from Marseille and Miramas with its emblematic train, surrounded by the garrigue and its many hiking trails, Sausset-les-Pins does not lack charm. Its port is overlooked by the Charles Roux castle, an imposing XIXth century residence that serves as a landmark for sailors. The small pedestrian streets, the stores, the café terraces, the lively market, everything here encourages conviviality, and gives Sausset an authentic atmosphere, far from the glitter of the French Riviera.

Eight kilometers of coastline made up of beaches, creeks and inlets, spread out along its coastline. For the amateurs, sand and pebble beaches have been developed on the side of the cornice. True to its tradition, Sausset is a major fishing center: “sardinades”, “thonades”, fishing contests animate the port all summer long while in January, sea urchins and shellfish are celebrated.

This old hamlet, which attracts people with its dream environment near large business areas, has developed enormously in recent years. The hills facing the port have been invested by high-end real estate programs, while on the cornice, the beautiful villas stand under the shade of the pine forest, sheltered from prying eyes.
