Photos and Description of this holiday studio in 1st - Old Port (Vieux Port) - Le balcon du Lacydon
Studio with view of the Old Port
A 3-star studio for 2 people, ideally located in the heart of the lively Marseille, at the entrance to the Panier neighbourhood and of the Old Port.
The Old Port is the starting point to every kind of sports, cultural or relaxing places of interest.
This studio with view of the Old Port has a little South oriented terrace with table and chairs. There is also a kitchen equipped with a dishwasher and a washer/dryer.
This all comfort carefully decorated studio has been fully renovated in March 2014. You will find a room with a large bed (160 x 200 cm), a fully equipped kitchen (with 2 induction hobs, an extractor, a dishwasher, a traditional/microwaves oven, a refrigerator, and a washer/dryer), a shower room with walk-in shower, and separated toilets.
You can also easily visit the Saint Victor abbey, the oldest abbey in Marseille, as well as Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde, our 'Holy Mother', overlooking the whole Marseille and watching over us (small train or bus 220 m away). And you can go to the MUCEM (Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations), the Fort Saint Jean, the Pharo Palace, Marseille Cathedral, and the Panier neighbourhood (the oldest area of Marseille). Marseille offers a lot of great wonders to be visited.
To relax, you can go straight by bus to many beaches along the cornice, or take a boat from the Old Port and head to the calanques, to the Pointe Rouge beach, to L'Estaque, or to the Frioul wild islands and stop at the Castle of If, made famous by the novel 'The Count of Monte-Cristo' from Alexandre Dumas.
