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.

There is a restaurant at the bottom of the stairs which was perfect when none of us wanted to cook. The terrace at the top and the balcony were lovely additions so you could enjoy the views of Marseille and look across to Calanque. The beach is so well located, such a short walk and the supermarket is a long walk but a short bus journey. Everywhere is so accessible from the property, buses take you both ways and not difficult to use. The whole week was excellent, my friends and I wanted a nice relaxing holiday and that is what we got. The old port was a short distance away (even shorter by bus) which was ideal if you wanted to go shopping or venture out for a few more restaurants and the Notre Dame de la Garde was a little walk away (uphill) but the views were incredible. We could not have asked for a better property and a better time!! Thank you for a wonderful holiday!!!

The property is spacious and well laid out and would comfortably cope with 4 adults for a short stay. The views are as good as anywhere we have been previously. The photos on the site do not do it justice. Monique is very welcoming and helpful. We will definitely book again when we return to Marseille.
