Very stylish apartment in a fantastic location

5 of 5
My wife and I had a wonderful stay here as part of our honeymoon. 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.

Nice property, good for 6 people. No air conditioning but fans provided. We liked the position about 14 minute walk to the port but up hill on the way back. Good bus route number 57.
