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.

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.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      The apartment is well equipped, neat and tidy and very easy to keep that way. The south facing balcony is a great place to have a coffee or a bite to eat, watch the world go by and soak up the sun. Mme. Fabre is wonderful and attentive to any and every need. Everything one could want is within a short walk - supermarkets, bakeries, fruit and veg. shops, organic food store, local cafe/bars (or ~10 mins to Irish/Brit pub restaurants at the marina), banks/ATMs and of course the beach! Only small gripe is the internet service can be rather patchy, mainly around peak access times (but very good otherwise). I stayed here for just short of one month and wished it was longer - highly recommended!
