The location of 7th - Vallon des Auffes holiday rentals is equally convenient for the beaches of the city and the shopping and restaurants of its central districts. The extensive marina frontage, overlooked by the impressive seaward fortresses, is great to walk down, shop in, and take a drink at one of its harbourside bars or cafés, checking out the boats or watch the world go by. The historic St. Victor's Abbey is well worth a visit, as is the Basilica Notre Dame de la Garde, which sits on the cusp of the 6th arrondissement, with its own selection of HomeAway holiday homes – further from the beaches, but closer to the shopping areas and concentration of restaurants.

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.

Temperatures in the long summers typically top out at around 28-29°C, with evenings around 19°C; Marseille is officially the sunniest city in France, with over 2,800 hours per year.

From the first contact Apolline was a pleasure to deal with. The apartment proved to be even better than we had hoped. Comfortable, stylish and well equiped with a simply wonderful view. We particularly enjoyed the different sunsets every night and watching the boats sailing in and out of the port. It was so good to be staying in a city and be able to sleep so peacefully at night. Marseille has a lot to offer as a holiday destination and it is easy to travel further afield by public transport. We would particularly recommend a boat trip to see the Callanques and bus trips to Aix en Provence and Martigues. We would have absolutely no hesitation in staying in this apartment again in the future.

We have a 17 and 18 year old and the house was ideal for relaxing, lots of separate areas to chill out on your own with a book or socialise. Three different ares to eat, the terrace, the kitchen and garden with its lovely plants and trees. Marseille is a great city, we visited the museum of Contemporary Art, the Mucem, Unite d'habitation, the port and fish market, we went to the Basilica Notre-Dame de la Garde, at sunset. We tried a few different beaches and liked them all, although we got a bit lost looking for the bathing area at Malmousque. We had a great stay in the house and hope to return to Marseille sometime.
