.

Didier Delmas

The villa Cap Arts puts art in the spotlight on all floors. Located in La Ciotat, near Marseille, the house opens its 230 m2 to all the currents of art and all the ideas to create an unusual and colorful decoration. The entire decor changes every quarter and can be rented. An address to follow that we make you discover in pictures ...

We knew the art galleries in real apartments, especially in Paris. Sea side, we also surf on this trend of sharing favorites on the user friendly mode. In La Ciotat, Virginie Seguin, a journalist specializing in the art of living for twenty years, opened the house she has just built to creators from all walks of life, from crafts to photography through to sculpture and painting. His credo? Contemporaryness far from the beaten track.

Cap Arts Villa overlooks the landscape.
