Parfait en Marseille / Perfect in Marseille

  • 5 out of 5
I just returned after spending a week in this Marseille apartment, and continued on to 2 other VRBO properties in France the next two weeks. This apartment was the best, and the location could not have been better. Parfait, Perfect, Superbe, Superb!!! Gwen could not have been more welcoming and helpful, and the apartment could not have been more perfectly located. Exactly what I was looking for. Where most apartments similar to this location might have only the two front windows, this being a corner unit, had to windows on the scenic side street as well, giving the apartment a nice, open feeling and plenty of light. I walked everywhere from this apartment, the Old Port, Cathedral de la Garde, the old town, the MUCEM, Cours Juliens, rue/marche des Capuchins, the train station, and the metro (very close). The next time I return to Marseille, this is will I will stay. There is no reason for me to look anywhere else. Many, Many Thanks, Gwen!!!

The apartment is perfect in every way. You couldn't ask for a better location. The flat is clean and very well equipped--better than described. And the view is worth the price alone. Gwen couldn't have been more helpful--even arranged for my cab to the airport. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. So should you.

What a location!

  • 5 out of 5
This comfortable apartment has a magnificent view of the Vieux Port, and immediate walking access to hundreds of restaurants and eateries in and around the water front. It is clean and well equipped with necessary amenities (though a new kettle will make the experience perfect). The apartment is well located with easy transport by bus, metro or ferry just a skip and a hop away, all along the foreshore. And the shopping strip is only a 10 min walk away. What more can one want! The owner is very helpful and responsive making the experience all the more pleasant. We will stay here should we visit Marseille again.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from our short stay of 4 nights at this amazing apartment in Old Port Marseille. The view from the 4th floor apartment is outstanding! You can watch the boats, the events in the main square, the fish market, and the people. Day or night the view was captivating. It is a corner apartment with two huge windows that open wide to overlook the port and two windows on the side that overlook the side street. There is an elevator from the first to the fourth floor. The apartment is bright, modern, extremely clean, and very well laid out. It is within a 5 minute walk to metro, buses, boat tours, tourist info centre, a vast selection of restaurants, fish market and old town. Gwen (the owner) was easy to contact prior to and on our arrival. He was very helpful and pleasant and provided us with contact info during our stay should we need to reach him for anything. This neighborhood felt very safe, we were never concerned. We would highly recommend this property for a stay in Marseille and we hope to come back when we can stay for longer

Amazing apartment on Old Port

  • 5 out of 5
From the moment Gwen opened the windows we knew we were going to have an amazing time in this apartment. As a corner apartment, it has four sets of windows which give it great natural light. Two of the windows overlook the Old Port and you can spend hours just looking out the window as the light changes throughout the day, entranced by the constant activity on the port. While it is right on the port and in an area that is safe but lively, the apartment is remarkably quiet. Its location is superb and there is huge range of activities within walking distance, including boat trips, museums, bars and shopping. It's right in the middle of an enormous number of restaurants so eating out is easy. The daily fish market takes place at the end of the port, a 2 minute walk. Additionally, there's a supermarket and bakery a block away. A metro stop is close by, as is the helpful tourist office.

It's a cleverly renovated place that makes excellent use of space. While it's not huge, it is more than adequate for two people and the layout makes it feel bigger than it is. The kitchen is fully equipped and well appointed and the bathroom/toilet is clean and new. The whole apartment is tastefully and practically appointed and spotlessly clean. Gwen and his wife were extremely helpful and great hosts. We would recommend this apartment without reservation.

Despite its bad press at times, we found Marseille to be a safe and friendly place, certainly in the areas around the Old Port. It has a fascinating history and is quite beautiful and full of things to do. It has an interesting cultural life with outstanding contemporary museums.
