Things to do

Beaches: The beaches of Marseille are on the doorstep of the majority of accommodation in 7th - Vallon des Auffes, but are typically very busy in the summer. However, there are plenty of other larger and emptier beaches within easy driving distance of the city.

Food and drink: Marseille is the capital of Provence, and thus the epicentre of its cuisine, with several dishes unique to the region. Don't forget to partake of pastis, an incredibly common aniseed liquor, as strong as whisky but mostly drank diluted to taste.

Outdoor pursuits: With the beaches and a proliferation of marinas so close by, the choice of watersports is extensive, with fishing and boating being particularly popular. The mountains and hills surrounding Marseille make for great hiking, horse trekking and mountain biking.

Shopping: The main shopping areas are in central Marseille, which the 7th arrondissement borders. With Marseille's position as the 2013 European Capital of Culture, much pedestrianisation work was undertaken, creating great shopping concourses among the boutiques and markets of the Old Port.

Culture: Again with the 2013 appointment, Marseille upgraded and refurbished many of its museums and theatres, so cultural tours have become even more appealing. Not to be missed in the 7th District are the historic St. Victor's Abbey and the two forts guarding the harbour mouth: St Nicolas and Fort Saint Jean.

Property owner and organisers were very welcoming and made us feel at home away from home! Giving plenty of information for the bus routes, trains and even the ferry! It's a great little place to stay for a group of friends or a small family, very close to the port, supermarkets and small bakeries :) It's been a pleasure staying with you and would definitely stay here in the future! Many thanks

Close to the sea for that cool down swim and chill with a short walk to the shops and a great little cafe bar. The property itself was spot on very comfortable and homely, lovely garden and patio area with a great view ,very quiet except for the seagulls and local dog. The host were brill , even helped carry our cases up the steep hill to the property. Great place Great people....

The apartment had everything we needed, it was clean and we were more than comfortable. We were welcomed by Gabriel de Portillo and his lovely wife and they made our stay in France one of the best ever. They had thought of everything and on our arrival there was fresh fruit in the fridge, wine, water, beer, fruit juice, home made apple tart..and the list goes on. I can honestly say they are the kindest, most hospitable couple I have ever met. I have no hesitation in recommending this apartment and would love to return. Thank you so much to the Portillos, you are a special couple with an amazing home.
