    Apartments in 6th - Notre-Dame de la Garde are located in a coastal arrondissement of Marseille, a range of urban holiday accommodation to contrast with HomeAway's more rural selection across the rest of the Cote d'Azur. Marseille's history stretches back 2,600 years, and over that time it has functioned as France's main trading port. This has given the city an eclectic atmosphere, as the confluence of cultures evolved into a melting pot of cuisines, customs, and ideologies. Villas in 6th - Notre-Dame de la Garde are very convenient for the cultural attractions of Marseille, especially the dominating Basilica Notre-Dame de la Garde, a huge neo-Byzantine church built on the highest natural point in Marseille – and recently meticulously and extensively restored.

    6th - Notre-Dame de la Garde holiday accommodation is centred around an important bus and metro exchange, which makes for getting around Marseille easy. As might be expected from urban holiday apartments in 6th - Notre-Dame de la Garde, fully equipped kitchens, laundry facilities, and internet access are the norms, and a few even have access to a pool and barbecue area. For those without a pool, however, the warm waters of the Mediterranean are usually no more than a short walk away.

    Food and drink: As the capital of Provence, Marseille probably has the best access to its produce and cuisines, and the masses of restaurants run the gamut from affordable and homely to the exquisite and exclusive, with many dishes unique to the region, generally fusions of the various Mediterranean influences.

    Outdoor pursuits: Being close by Vieux Port, sailing, fishing, scuba diving and boat-orientated activities are very popular. Of course, the hills and mountains of Provence beckon from the city limits, where much fantastic hiking, biking and horse trekking can be found.

    Shopping: In addition to the elevated level of shopping one finds in a major metropolitan city, there's a local products and artisan market held every Thursday and Friday in June and the first two weeks in September, and every day during July and August. It's located in the newly pedestrianised Old Port right by the 6th District.

    Culture: Marseilles has 24 museums and 42 theatres, which is more than enough to satisfy even the most dedicated cultural enthusiast. This includes the magnificent Opera des Marseille. Also check out the Prefecture, the fountain of Place Castellane, and of course the district's namesake, the Basilica Notre-Dame de la Garde.
