Hotel and Restaurant in Gémenos, near Aubagne in Provence

The hotel restaurant La Magdeleine in Gémenos invites you to a unique natural setting where the spirit and art of living in Provence are revealed. This splendid 18th century bastide is nestled in the centre of Gémenos in the heart of the Bouches-du-Rhône in Provence. Between the land - the Sainte Baume and the Garlaban - and the sea - the creeks of Cassis twenty minutes away and Marseille only fifteen kilometres away.

In turn, it was the seigneurial residence of a marquis, a hospital or an orphanage, and has continued its tradition of hospitality by becoming a hotel. Among its regular guests, Marcel Pagnol made it a regular stopover and the establishment gradually became a real local institution. In any case, as soon as you set foot here, you can't escape falling in love.

A property with character

"A beautiful place, for beautiful moments around a beautiful table"
Mathias Dandine

A family house

Mathias Dandine and his wife Christel are the masters of this house which they have reinvented in their own image, with a motto: "A beautiful place, for beautiful moments around a beautiful table".

La Magdeleine naturally inspires a family spirit in every corner and through all its services. The smile, the attention, the involvement and the attention to detail are found in every employee, whether they work for the hotel or the restaurants. The care taken, quite simply, to ensure that everything runs smoothly, immediately evokes the feeling of entering a unique place where everyone feels full satisfaction in receiving and pleasing.

Families are also at the heart of the couple's thinking. Their house should benefit everyone, whatever their age. If on Sundays, everyone gathers around a traditional meal, games around the pool or under the trees, a game of pétanque or a film in the park should be options to create small moments of unforgettable happiness.

A large Park with Terrace

It is one of the most beautiful assets of La Magdeleine and a must, at any time, as soon as the weather permits. Here, you can enjoy the vast panorama of the park, sip an aperitif in the setting sun or enjoy a rejuvenating tea-time. A perfect symbol of the Provençal art of living, the terrace of the bastide is an essential step in understanding the heavenlyhappiness of this house.

In the heart of the vegetable garden, which transforms itself throughout the seasons and tells the story of the beauty of a nourishing nature, the Chef has imagined an exceptional ephemeral table, which a few privileged people can enjoy for a unique experience. Picked the same day, vegetables and fruits compose recipes and accompany, for example, some products cooked on a wood fire for bucolic moments where the disconnection is total. It is a time for sharing and exchange, in an obvious and joyful simplicity.

La Magdeleine also proves to be a place of life open to a number of events, inviting more than just its own customers and regularly creating surprises to assert itself as a real driving force in the heart of the village of Gémenos. Thus, the park of the bastide lives to the rhythm, each week, of an appointment around, for example, a musical evening, an open-air cinema session or a piano concert under the stars. Not forgetting the 14th of July, a festive and gourmet garden party that cannot be missed. Soon you can even imagine a yoga retreat in this marvellous park during a complete stay oriented towards peace and well-being. Each new visit is certainly a happy discovery...
