An introduction to Casa Youm

Please describe Casa Youm in a nutshell.

In the beginning, it was a house of painters. Paul Cezanne lived here for six months. We are the third owners and wanted to create a place where guests would want to spend the entire day. This is why we named it “Youm”, meaning “day”.

What is the story behind Casa Youm, what was your inspiration to create it?

I am from Tunisia and my husband is half-Italian/half-French. For the last 10 years, I have worked as an engineer with luxury brands in Paris while my husband has experience in restaurants.

Since I was young, I dreamt of creating some kind of hotel or guesthouse with high-end services. After Covid, it happened. My husband was already living in Marseille and I wanted to move there, so we decided to open Casa Youm.

In Marseille, there are mostly big hotels. We wanted to create something smaller where you could be in the pool with not a lot of other people.

How would you describe the atmosphere and the interior design of Casa Youm?

We were inspired by places in Tunisia and Italy, so the property has a Mediterranean feel. A lot of guests tell us they feel as though they are in Ibiza or Spain. There is an Andalusian aesthetic. It’s very quiet and with a lot of spots where guests can relax, read and chill.

To you personally, what is so special about Casa Youm?

It’s located in a quiet and calm part of Marseille that used to be an artists’ enclave. Before, people from Marseille didn’t often come here as there weren’t many restaurants and cafes. Now, we have a lot of local people coming to escape the noise of the city. There are views across Marseille but you don’t hear the cars and the noise. You feel as though you are far from the city, even though you’re not.

Breakfast is included in the rates and includes coffee/tea, juice, eggs, yoghurt, croissants and bread. Almost everything at breakfast is homemade and we always get a lot of compliments about it. We also have a drinks menu so guests can enjoy a drink by the pool throughout the day.

If guests want to dine at the table d’hôtes, they need to make a reservation the day before. It’s a three-course menu and is always a surprise, taking into consideration guests’ dietary requirements. Many of the dishes are inspired by our Tunisian and Italian backgrounds. Unlike some table d’hôtes, guests have their own table and don’t have to eat communally.

On request, we can arrange yoga and pilates classes, massages and a laundry service, as well as book taxis, car rentals and private drivers. We have a concierge service and after we receive bookings, we always contact clients by email to explain everything and check if they need anything. From restaurant bookings to a bottle of champagne in their room, they can ask for it.

Things to do in Provence & Marseille

  • Art / Culture
  • Shopping / Markets
  • Massages / Treatments
  • Yoga classes
  • Boat trips

Casa Youm is located on two acres of land, so guests can walk to the top of the hill to watch the sunset and enjoy views across Marseille. I’d also recommend going to the Calanque de Niolon to swim or hike along the Côte Bleue.

Many of our guests like to cruise into Marseille, with boats departing a 10-minute walk from the hotel. From May to September, there are boats every 30 minutes and the journey takes around 40 minutes. There are no boats in the wintertime.

The location of Casa Youm

Casa Youm is located in an area known as L’Estaque, which is around 15 minutes’ drive from downtown Marseille and Marseille Provence Airport. Five minutes’ walk from the house is the L’Estaque train station, which takes you to Marseille-Saint Charles in eight minutes. From there, it’s a 10-minute walk to the downtown area.

If clients are arriving by train, I can meet them at the station and assist with luggage as there are a few stairs. Alternatively, guests can take a taxi between Casa Youm and the downtown area for around 25 Euros.

Five minutes by train in the other direction is the Calanque de Niolon, which is a nice place to go swimming and dine out. In L’Estaque, there are a few restaurants but it is mostly a residential area.

When is the best time to visit Provence?

In the summer (June to September), there are a lot of people around as the city is full of tourists. It’s a good time to visit if you want to go swimming and enjoy the Calanques. I really like Marseille in April/May and September/October when it’s quieter and not too hot. Both May and October are usually still warm enough to swim.
