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.

Quiet without being secluded. Flat basic but clean and charming with all the necessary amenities. On the down side, a little steep before reaching the flat but if you follow Mrs Larcheron' s wise advice (if you are walking with a heavy luggage that is) best to use the Dardànelles street. Mrs Larcheron is a very attentive, thorough and helpful landlady and will do all she possibly can to be of assistance to you. Last but not least her charges are most reasonably priced considering the flat and its lovely location in the well sought after Vallon des Auffes.
