The apartment is reasonably spacious and decorated throughout in very stylish, tasteful manner. The balcony allows you fabulous views right across the old port to Notre Dame de Garde and was a brilliant base for exploring Marseille. Hélène was very responsive and helpful.

First of all the owner has been very helpful and did all he could to make our stay very nice. It was the same with the local person who manages the property. The house is spacious, clean with charming interior. We really appreciate the thick walls permitting to keep it fresh all day long (despite temperatures over 39C!) and the gardens where we can find plenty of spots to relax. The house is nearby St Remy which is a couple of km away hence very convenient (I use to run to the town using small roads in the country side) I would recommend the house for anyone who wishes either to stay and relax or visit Provence
