Make an apartment in 1st - Old Port (Vieux Port) your home away from home

1st - Old Port (Vieux Port) holiday villas and apartments are located in the 1st arrondissement of Marseille, the historic old port buffered from the sea by the 2nd - Panier District, where HomeAway also offers a range of luxury holiday accommodation. 1st - Old Port (Vieux Port) accommodation puts visitors right in the heart of the city, the setting for Alexander Dumas' The Count of Monte Cristo, along with the Chateau d'If a mile or so away by boat. Marseille's legacy as the 2013 European Capital of Culture saw the area develop as a pedestrian area with additional parklands under development slated for completion in 2020.

1st - Old Port (Vieux Port) holiday rentals tend to have the facilities one would expect from urban accommodation: internet access, full kitchen and laundry facilities, while lacking more rural accoutrements, such as pools and barbecue areas. Parks and public beaches can allow for the latter, however, and seafront swimming and sunbathing spots are plentiful.

Things to do

Beaches: For cityscape beaches, accommodation in 1st - Old Port (Vieux Port) is hard to beat. What they lack in peace and quiet, however, they make up for with facilities. For a quieter beach experience, villages to the southeast, such as Cassis, Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer and La Ciotat offer more rural alternatives.

Food and drink: Marseille is home to two particular dishes that simply have to be tried here at their source: a garlic aioli over fish and vegetables, and bouillabaisse seafood stew. Of course, the organic wines, olive oils and charcuterie of Provence also feature locally, as does the Provencal tipple of choice, pastis.

Outdoor pursuits: 1st - Old Port (Vieux Port) holiday homes have extremely convenient access to the marinas of Marseille, allowing for virtually unlimited watersports, particularly fishing and boating. Hiking and biking are also very popular in the surrounding hills and mountains.

Shopping: The main high street of Marseille, La Canebière, is often referred to as the city's Champs-Elysees. Only a kilometre long, it is lined with restaurants and bars, and provides a broad selection of shops. The Old Port's recent pedestrianisation projects have also helped improve the shopping experience.

Culture: As the urban centre of the Cote d'Azur, Marseille is predictably the cultural capital, as demonstrated by its many museums, galleries and theatres. Chief among the latter in the Old Port is the Opera de Marseille, which has been in operation since the 18th century.

Weather in 1st - Old Port (Vieux Port)

Marseille has a Mediterranean climate, which makes for beautifully hot summers and surprisingly mild winters, with summers highs averaging 28-29°C. Winters generally hover around the mid-teens, but can drop lower under the influence of the cold north wind known as the Mistral.

Travel to 1st - Old Port (Vieux Port)

The Old Port's urban nature, the metro system, and central train station being located right in this district means holidays here can be quite easily accomplished without a hire car. Of course, a car is still advisable to get up into the surrounding mountains. Marseille has it's own airport 15 miles to the northwest, with several direct flight options.

                                                              Really pleased with our choice

                                                              A bright and airy appartment situated in a lively, characterful square just a minute from the Old Port. Very well designed living space with an elevated, very well equipped modern kitchen within the main living area. It was a pleasure to prepare food (not being shut away in a little kitchen) with the windows open to allow the hubub to filter in from the bars and restaurants below. Communication with the owner was very good. Would very happily come to stay here again.

                                                              Bright, fresh property, spotlessly clean. Wifi and French TV channels. Could be improved with a few items such as a DVD player, and especially a fan as not air conditioned (and a working kettle!). The down side of the property is that it changes from a quiet little side street to an extremely noisy one at night! As there is no air con/ fan it is necessary to have the windows open so it makes sleeping difficult. Very central location.

                                                              Patricia's apartment is beautiful. It is situated in a fantastic location and a perfect base for exploring Marseille and the surrounding area. The apartment is luxurious, very well equipped and finished to a very high specification. Finding the apartment was really easy following the clear instructions we received from Patricia. We were warmly welcomed by Cecile (Patricia was away) at the arranged time and shown how all the amenities (air con, wifi, TV etc.) worked and given some useful suggestions of where to go, restaurants etc. The fridge was well stocked which was a really nice touch. We hired a car for the last few days and parking is really easy in the Monthyon car park which is just across the road from the apartment. Buses and the Metro are easy to use but we mainly walked as the apartment is so centrally located. I cannot recommend the apartment highly enough. We had an amazing holiday in Marseille. Thank you Patricia and Cecile.
