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.

Apartment on 4th floor hence view but no lift. The apartment is in need of some refreshing although does now have a shower in the bath and had all the basics. Some confusion over paying since, despite giving a credit card number with the booking, we needed to pay cash. Also parking and bed linen were extra.

Lucky for us, right under our window to watch and enjoy.. The apartment was very clean and everything we expected it would be based on our communication prior to booking it. Moreover, it was well stocked with everything from coffee to olive oil, paper towels to toilet paper so an immediate trip to the grocery was not necessary. It was located very conveniently to grocery store, the waterfront, fabulous restaurants and many little shops of local artists.. There was no air conditioning, but although the apartment was warm during the day, cross ventilation through the apartment at night provided very comfortable sleeping with the windows open. The greeter was quite pleasant, accommodating and offered very helpful information for getting around town. We would definitely stay here if we return to Marseille. Joe P Rochester NY
