The History of Casa Delauze

After 3 years of construction, Henri Germain Delauze inaugurated a magnificent stilt house in 1981: the Casa Delauze.

Located in an exceptional location between the Sofitel Vieux-Port and the Fort Ganteaume, the Casa Delauze is unique to Marseille.

Its interior, modeled after submarines, is as fascinating as the story of its owner: diving equipment, corals and souvenirs of exotic travels make it a museum in itself. The place offers a deep dive while still remaining on dry land!

Henri Germain

Thanks to his passion for technological challenges and his personal commitment, Henri Germain Delauze, founder and president of Comex, enabled the creation of a new industry. Who contributed to the renown of Marseille across all oceans.

This action man continued to search for elements of the underwater heritage until the end of his life with a small submarine and two support ships of his own design. He thus maintained the strong bond he had woven for seventy years with the « Grande Bleue ».

« This house is my grandparents’ house. And it’s so beautiful that I didn’t want to keep it for myself. Everyone asked me: “But why don’t you live there?” But why? So that only I could benefit from it? No. I want it to be open to everyone as much as possible. For people to realize what my grandfather did. »
