Sausset-les-Pins is a commune in the Bouches-du-Rhône department in southern France.

Location[edit]

It is very close to Carry-le-Rouet, so much so that up until 1908 the two villages were not properly demarcated. Further, it is 35 km away from Marseille, and 42 km away from Aix-en-Provence.

History[edit]

In 1855 a castle was built.

In 1924 the first municipal elections were held.
