Fantastic location and great apartment

5 of 5
We loved this place - a perfect location for exploring everything about Marseille! We spent a week in this delightful home from home and would highly recommend it. Easy access from the airport and no need for a car. The apartment is exactly as the pictures - with great attention to design detail. Very comfortable large double bed and sofa bed. And great shower. With the windows closed all is calm and relaxing; open the windows and you are right in the middle of the sights and sounds of Marseille - the lively Vieux Port, the splendid view of the Bonne Mere, colourful markets, street artists - and the little balcony provides a great place to watch the world go by. Right beside the apartment are cafes, restaurants, supermarkets, tabacs, museums, the Metro, the tram, bus stops, le Petit Train and boat terminals for trips to the Calanques, Chateau d'If or the Frioul islands... all a very short walk away. And everything you could need for a perfect holiday! Helene & Paul have provided a really comprehensive & useful file, detailing many things to see and do in Marseille and the surrounding area. We particularly loved the charming Panier district just behind the apartment; l'Opera & Cours Julien just on the other side of the Port; boat trips; a bus journey along the Corniche to the Beach; Vallon des Auffes; and the most fabulous Palais Longchamps. Still lots more to see and do - and we hope to be back soon :)) Thank you Helene and Paul for sharing your home with us. You were perfect hosts - always friendly, informative and quick to respond to any queries. A bientot!

Excellent location. Quiet except when windows open. Kitchen very well appointed. Very clean.

We loved Marseilles, the location of the apartment, the restaurants, the ease of getting around (metro, busses etc). Even the weather was kind. The apartment itself was almost perfect - location, facilities, comfort. We will definitely revisit in 2019. Peter and Marilyn Davies
