Make an apartment in 2nd - Panier District your home away from home

Marseille is the second-largest city in France after Paris, and the largest French port on the Cote d'Azur, where HomeAway has a wide selection of accommodation available. Understandably, it attracted 4.1 million visitors in 2012. Apartments in the 2nd - Panier District put guests right on the seafront by the huge marina of Veiux Port, convenient for all the attendant facilities in place to cater to the sailing population. 2nd - Panier District accommodation is also convenient for some of the cultural treasures of Marseille, including the city's Romanesque/Byzantine cathedral, La Vieille Charite Museum, and guided walking tours around the district, which explain highlights of the city's 2,600 years of history in both French and English.

Most 2nd - Panier District holiday rentals come with fully equipped kitchens, laundry facilities, and internet access. Of course, with their urban locations, 2nd - Panier District rentals have convenient access to host of restaurants, bars, shopping and cultural attractions. Marseille also has its own beaches to the south of the docks.

Things to do

Beaches: The beaches in Marseille are mostly backed by the urban sprawl, which allows for great city views and access to food, drink and watersports equipment. For larger beaches with more peaceful and natural surroundings, the villages of Cassis, La Ciotat, and Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer have beaches about 15 miles to the southeast.

Food and drink: There are two traditional dishes that simply have to be tried in Marseille: bouillabaisse seafood stew; and seafood and vegetable aioli – both preferably washed down by the daylong Provencal staple, diluted pastis, an aniseed liquor as common in the south of France as tea is in the UK.

Outdoor pursuits: Marseille is surrounded by the hills and mountains of Provence, which are great for hikers and bikers to explore. Of course, with 2nd - Panier District villas offering unparalleled access to the sea, watersports are a big part of the outdoor possibilities. This part of the Mediterranean coast has a lot of Calanques, the distinctive cliffs that provide a dramatic backdrop to boating trips.

Shopping: With Marseille's status as the largest city on the Cote d'Azur, the shopping is unparalleled. With its history as a cultural melting pot, shopping is equally eclectic, with funky New Age alongside classic fashions and discount shops next to exclusive boutique department stores. Marseille's olive oil soap is a popular souvenir to seek out.

Culture: The 2nd - Panier District is home to the Marseille Cathedral, a wonderful example of Roman/Byzantine architecture. La Vieille Charite Museum is also located here, as is the Chateau d'If of Count of Monte Cristo fame, on an island a couple of miles off Veiux Port.

Weather in 2nd - Panier District

Marseille is subject to the Mediterranean climate, which typically consists of hot summers and mild winters, moderated by the sea and the cooling Mistral and sand-laden Scirocco winds, the former from the north, the latter from the south. Summer temperatures usually top out in the high 20s °C, while the winter usually sees the mid-teens. Most of the rain falls in October and November.

Travel to 2nd - Panier District

Marseille has its own airport 15 miles to the northwest of the centre of the city, which is where the 2nd - Panier District is located. There are three airlines with direct flight options to the UK: British Airways, EasyJet and Ryanair. Marseille is also one of the major ports on the Mediterranean, with ferry links to Corsica, Italy and Algiers. Marseille is also driveable from the UK, of course, with the trip taking around two days of fairly easy driving. Rail links through Paris are also possible in around eight or nine hours.

Lovely apartment in an excellent location, perfect for couples

4 of 5
My partner and i arrived late on a Saturday night and required a late check in which wasn't a problem for our host who met us at the entrance of the apartment to hand over the keys. There are 4 flights of narrow stairs to climb which didn't bother us but may be a factor to consider for others as there is no lift. The apartment was clean on arrival, we both loved the decoration of the flat and the artwork. It felt very spacious for the 2 of us. Being on the top floor has its advantages, the view is nice from the balcony, on one side you can see a glimpse of the harbor and notre dame de la garde, the other side directly in front is where people can come to play boules in the afternoon. We enjoyed both views. There are some lovely restaurants and cafes close to the apartment. It has everything you would need within a couple of minutes walk. Shops and restaurants are close enough to be handy but not close enough to cause noise annoyance. We found the apartment quiet. The location of the apartment is great for exploring the old town and all its surroundings. It's also only 5-10mins walk to the vieux port. Getting around is easy and we were happy to be on this side of the harbor. I had to contact the host to ask how to obtain hot water, he replied very quickly to answer any issues. Overall the apartment was perfect for us as a couple and it was fantastic to have the balcony. If i could suggest one change it would be the addition of a fan for the bedroom. We endured a few hot nights while we were there and this would've been a welcomed addition to the room. This is the only reason that i'm giving 4 instead of 5 stars. I would give 4 and a half stars if i had the option. The loft bedroom is lower than some may expect and the stairs could be a little tricky for some. I imagine this would be very warm at night in the summer too. It looks great and adds to the unique decor of the apartment, making the most of the space available in the apartment. I'm sure young adults and teenagers would love it. We would stay here again and would recommend to others who are visiting Marseille.

Great Vacation rental

5 of 5
We arrived in Marseille on the afternoon of the French Music Festival where everyone comes out playing music and dancing in the streets. Lucky for us, right under our window to watch and enjoy.. The apartment was very clean and everything we expected it would be based on our communication prior to booking it. Moreover, it was well stocked with everything from coffee to olive oil, paper towels to toilet paper so an immediate trip to the grocery was not necessary. It was located very conveniently to grocery store, the waterfront, fabulous restaurants and many little shops of local artists.. There was no air conditioning, but although the apartment was warm during the day, cross ventilation through the apartment at night provided very comfortable sleeping with the windows open. The greeter was quite pleasant, accommodating and offered very helpful information for getting around town. We would definitely stay here if we return to Marseille. Joe P Rochester NY

Fantastic apartment

5 of 5
Myself and 5 other guys stayed here for 4 nights. Was left in immaculate condition and has all the amenities needed. All the locals were friendly and only a short walk into the main port. Owner very helpful, answering any questions asked. Would stay here again without any hesitation.
