Make a holiday rental apartment or self catering villa in Marseille, France your home away from home

The Marseille region of Provence is a wonderfully unique area, whose origins lie with the Greeks. Marseille is actually the oldest city in France, with many eras wrapped up in the streets, alleys and squares that make up this astonishing destination. Those who take self catering accommodation in Marseille, France always return, whether for the truly remarkable history, unique folklore and culture or the glorious coastline.

Things to do in Marseille, France

Of all the things to do in Marseille, it is the Marseille beaches that usually get mentioned first. There are more than 20 excellent sandy beaches to choose from when staying in a self catering Marseille apartment or villa. Water sports thrive in the area, with the shingle beaches of Escale Borely and Playa des Planchistes reserved as windsurfing hotspots. There are many excellent Marseille beaches to choose from, especially along the rocky calanques region, which is the Spanish equivalent of the Norwegian Fjords.

Marseille, which is a huge cultural centre, is awash with festivals and events throughout the year, but especially during the summer months. Taking self catering Marseilles accommodation in the summer means that you will never be lost for entertainment if the cafes and nightclubs of Marseilles cannot hold your attention. La Fiesta des Suds is a magnificent celebration of the cities multicultural music and art, whilst the more famous Festival de Marseille in July is an international festival of music, theatre and dance. Information on Marseilles festivals and events are readily available from the Marseille tourist information offices.

Surrounding the town is some of the finest walking, hiking and mountain biking country in the Bouches-du-Rhone. The coastal paths are renowned for their beauty, whilst the Massif des Calanques are known to have some of the most inspiring routes you can find to walk. Cycle races are often fought out in the roads and lanes around Marseille, but if you would like to tour the area slowly, taking a bicycle from a Marseille villa is an excellent choice.

Places to stay on holiday in Marseille, France

Marseille itself must be visited from any of the self catering villas in Marseille’s surrounding area. There are so many things to do in Marseille throughout the year that you cannot miss out. The Cathedral of the Major, Notre Damn de la Garde, Jardin des Vestiges and many palaces make for essential viewing, and the nightlife is fantastic for those who want to stay in the city at night. There are more tourist attractions in Marseille than you could possibly explore in a single holiday from a Marseille apartment, but if you visit the city once, you shall almost undoubtedly be back!

Cassis is a beautiful fishing port on the Cote d’Azur. The port is a sensational place to simply sit in a café and watch the world go by. The village attracts many artists who try to capture the beauty of Cassis on canvas, and those wishing to relax on a quiet beach are right at home. Marseille accommodation in Cassis is also vastly popular with rock climbers looking to conquer the climbing routes up the surrounding cliffs.

The village of La Ciotat is one of the oldest villages in the region, steeped in history yet perfectly modern and comfortable. All water sports can be enjoyed to the highest level from La Ciotat, especially scuba diving, and the rock climbing opportunities are quite phenomenal.

Comfortable, Clean and Great Pool

5 of 5
The villa was in a perfect position for walking into Cassis, which had many good restaurants and shops. It had everything you needed and the secluded garden and pool were exceptional. The villa was perfectly positioned for visiting the local villages, as well as Aix-en-Provence and Marseilles.

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....

Nice Apartment

4 of 5
Nice apartment, very conveniently situated about five minutes walk from town centre. Beautiful view with a big, well furnished sunny balcony. Well appointed , clean and tidy living/ kitchen area..( new cups please! )...Bed was low but comfortable. Owner was very helpful and kept in touch by text during our travels..Lots of information in the apartment which informed us of the best things to see in the surrounding area. Cassis is a lovely setting for a relaxing holiday. Amazing views....The railway station is quite far from centre of town , but accessible once we sussed out the local bus service.
