They showed us around the apartment and told us about the city and places to visit. A supply of coffee in the cupboard which was greatly appreciated and a lovely bakery just on the corner for breakfast. Overall a great apartment and stay, thank you!

                                                                                                      The accommodation is perfectly located to explore the Marseille area. It is far enough away from the busy city to be able to relax, but is across the road from the ferry port which has regular ferries into Vieux Port. It is also a very short ferry or drive into the beautiful Calanques. The property itself is modern and well presented. It feels very secure, with a locked gate into the property and an alarm if required. We took our 8 month old daughter and Olivier and Ingrid were very accommodating, providing everything we needed such as a high chair and bath etc. The welcome gifts were also very kind and make you feel welcome in a way you don't get from a hotel etc. We would thoroughly recommend staying here if you visit Marseille. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Thanks again Jeremy, Katie and Chloe
