Make an apartment in 7th - Vallon des Auffes your home away from home

Holiday apartments and villas in 7th - Vallon des Auffes are located on the southern jaw of the historical entrance to the Old Port of Marseille, where HomeAway also offers holiday accommodation. 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.

The urban nature of 7th - Vallon des Auffes accommodation means it's typically more modern than elsewhere on the Cote d'Azur, with a higher number of rentals in 7th - Vallon des Auffes coming equipped with internet access and mod-con-equipped kitchens.

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.

Weather in 7th - Vallon des Auffes

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. This is largely due to the northerly Mistral wind which tends to clear away cloud during the winter. High temperatures in the winters hover around the low teens, and most of the rain falls in the autumn.

Travel to 7th - Vallon des Auffes

Marseille has its own airport about 15 miles to the northwest of the city centre, which has direct flights to and from the UK with British Airways, EasyJet and Ryanair. The whole city is linked by a metro and bus system, and a new tram system adds an additional cool way to get around. To get out into the mountainous hinterland, however, a car is recommended.

Additional service fee may apply.

A little gem in marvellous Marseille

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay so much we aim to return in 2017. 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....

Relaxing stay in clean and convenient apartment

4 of 5
We had a lovely trip to Marseille. Sandrine was very helpful and accommodating, even before we arrived as she let us know all the transport we would need. The apartment itself is really well situated - in a lovely part of town, just a few minutes from the beach, very close to a decent supermarket and a range of boulangeries, fruit and vegetable shops and nice restaurants, including the restaurants in the beautiful Vallon des Auffes. She provided us with lots of information about Marseille and the surrounding area on our arrival, and a lovely bottle of rose - what a treat! The apartment was a very decent size for a couple - although the kitchenette could have done with a few more cooking and cutting utensils. The only other thing is, if you are tall, the toilet may be a bit of a squeeze - it's in a very small room. That said, we really did have a lovely stay and everything worked well, was comfortable, nicely arranged and clean. Thank you Sandrine for making our stay so nice - we had a brilliant time!

The apartment was perfect, a real home from home. The views were amazing and I would recommend it!

5 of 5
We had a wonderful holiday in a perfect setting. 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.
