Practical base with pleasant terrace

4 of 5
After a surprising start when Alexandre had to take us to a different property while waiting for previous clients to check out of this one, we eventually got here about 6:30 pm. Well-modernised and well-equipped flat in uninspired neighbourhood, without attractive bars or cafes nearby, although handy mini-marts and patisserie in walking distance. Double bed against the wall, so I decided to use the sofa bed rather than scramble in and out around my wife - a bit undignified in my 70s! Sofa bed really only OK as single bed (imho). Small corner shower a bit of a let down, unless you like wrestling with a wet shower curtain! City transport excellent, with metro, trams and buses including the 83 round the coast and 60 up to Notre Dame de la Garde. Mixed success with meals in various street cafe/restaurants, but all with pleasant ambience. Sadly 60 mph winds one day meant we could not do planned boat trip to the Calanques, one of our reasons for visiting Marseille. But blue skies and warm sunshine always appreciated at this time of year. And thanks to Alexandre for ferrying us to and from the station (and his other apartment).

Could not have asked for a better trip!

5 of 5
Sarah and Frank were wonderful hosts! Frank was waiting for us with cold beers and everything you could need for a self-catering holiday. They were also on hand with information about everything! The apartment is full of character, very clean and wonderfully furnished. It is a perfect location for anyone looking to be closer to the beach (Plage des Catalans is very nearby) and a nice walk into the centre of Vieux Port (it only took us around 20 minutes). There are also lovely shops and bars nearby and a beautiful smaller port less than 10 minutes away with the famous Chez Fonfon! We highly recommend this apartment and all of Marseille. We are already planning another future trip. Thank you both so much again!
