Guestbook comments from the owner
Cet appartement est joli , bien équipé donnant sur une esplanade trés calme , plein sud.

Il n'y a aucun bruit de voiture.

Pour des raisons professionnelles j'y ai logé à plusieurs reprises et je peux dire qu'il est confortable été comme hiver.

Le quartier est particuliérement sympathique.

On trouve dans le bas de la rue d'endoume, boulanger, primeur et autre commerce , un super marché est accessible à pied à environ 400 m.

On peut passer de trés bon moments dans les restaurants et cafés environnants.

Traditional French Apartment in a Great Location

  • 4 out of 5
The owner, Paula, was very helpful and friendly from the first day we arrived till the last morning. The bed was very comfortable and the apartment had all that was required for a modern tourist. There were lots of shops in the local area and we enjoyed sampling french food. A short walk and we could enjoy all the Old Port had to offer. Will be recommending this apartment to anyone who might be travelling here.

Perfekte Lage für einen Marseille-Aufenthalt

  • 5 out of 5
Die Ferienwohnung eignet sich aufgrund der zentralen Lage optimal für einen Marseille-Besuch ohne Auto. Wir sind mit dem TGV ab Frankfurt angereist, von Marseille St. Charles bis zum Apartement sind es nur wenige Stationen mit Métro und Bus. Viele Sehenswürdigkeiten (View Port, Notre Dame de la Garde, Le Panier, La Canebière...) sind fußläufig erreichbar, für größere Entfernungen gibt es an jeder Ecke eine Bushaltestelle. So lässt sich z.B. ganz unkompliziert und günstig ein Tagesausflug nach Cassis unternehmen. Auch ein Supermarkt, eine Apotheke, ein Obst- und Gemüsehändler sowie diverse Bäckereien und Brasseries liegen in direkter Nähe zur Ferienwohnung.
Das Apartement selbst ist geschmackvoll und zweckmäßig eingerichtet, das Bett sehr bequem. Einzig die Toilette könnte einer größeren Person Probleme bereiten.;D Paule und ihr Mann sind tolle Gastgeber, herzlich und hilfsbereit.
Fazit: Wir sprechen eine dicke Empfehlung für die Ferienwohnung der Sorces aus und würden uns selbst wieder dafür entscheiden.
