Wow! What a most fantastic experience in Marseille staying here! First of all, Eloi is a fantastic host and made us feel very welcome from the minute he opened the front door for us. Very helpful with where to visit and how to get there. He also made dinner reservations for us at some excellent restaurants.
The apartment is very large with high vaulted ceilings and beautiful architecture and design. There were six of us there. My wife and I with our 2 young kids and my inlaws. We all had a great time there. The kids loved the kid's playroom and the 2nd floor beds.
The location of the apartment is very central. The port is a 15 min walk away. We were also able to walk to the old town, fort, museums and jardin du pharo for immaculate views of the port and city.
Marseille is such a beautiful, gritty, historic city and you can see it in the people and buildings there. We loved the walk on La Canabiere where you see all walks of life in Marseille.
Will definitely be back in the future to stay at Eloi's and see more of Marseille.
Eloi was always available for us whenever we needed anything. One of the best hosts and people I have ever met. Great guy. His place is highly recommended. Merci beuacoup, Eloi! :)
We stayed in this wonderful apartment the second week of July 2015. It's really a nice place. The owner, Eloi, goes out of his way to make sure you have everything you need and that you have a great stay. It's location is perfect for taking in all of Marseille. We had a car for the week that we were there and there is a car park right below the apartment which is very convenient and free of charge with the pass that you receive from the owner. The apartment was very comfortable, yet spacious, for our family of 7. It has a very great feel to it. We loved our time there so much that we extended our stay an extra day. Everything you need is very convenient and within a short walking distance of the apartment. I would recommend this property to anyone staying in the area.
From the moment we booked this fabulous apartment we felt we had a friend in Marseille. Eloi, the owner, emailed to let us know he was available for any inquiries leading up to and during our arrival. He became a fantastic resource in town and was a great host (there was even a handwritten note on my arrival)! The apartment is as great as it looks in pictures--even better. Well appointed, clean and with this fantastic mix of old-world architectural details, combined with a perfect blend of industrial, modern and classic furnishings. The kitchen has everything you'll need, plus some...and for those American travelers, please cook something on the induction cooktop. I promise it will make you convert from your gas range. All the bedrooms were comfortable and cozy. Given that we were there in the middle of winter (we've now experienced le mistral!) it was great to have individual temperature control in every room. I truly cannot say enough nice things about Eloi or the apartment. He will give you the best local recommendations and be available to you for any questions before and during your stay. If I were to return to Marseille, I would not hesitate to book this apartment...though I'm pretty certain he'll be booked solid for years to come.
Upon arrival, we entered this apartment and we heard wows. Our Family who travelled from Ireland entered this traditional French apartment with a touch of modern class. This incredibly spacious feeling with high ceilings and windows made us feel like we really had arrived in France. The pictures do not show how beautiful this apartment is. I don't think we have ever had as much space in an apartment, especially not in a city! Eloi met us upon our arrival and was very helpful. He was very informative and knew everything about the area. The little touches of luxury like the Nespresso machine, for example, really made our stay so comfortable. We loved coming home to this apartment every evening after a long day of outings and activities. Finishing our evening with a class of wine in this beautiful apartment was the cherry on top of a great holiday in Marseille.
Nous avons passé 6 jours très agréable dans cet appartement spacieux et proche de toutes les commodités bien qu'il soit situé dans un quartier populaire
L'appartement est tel que sur les photos ce qui est super. Mes petites filles étaient enchantées par le grand sapin de Noël!!!
Nous avons visité Marseille et déjeuné en terrasse sous un soleil radieux ce qui n'est pas toujours le cas chez nous en Eure et Loir en ce moment
Merci Eloi pour votre gentillesse, vos appels et vos petites attentions à notre égard ( bonbons pour les filles et jouets à disposition) : on se sent à l'aise chez vous
En bref, appartement à recommander
Schöne, sehr zentral gelegene Wohnung in stimmungsvollem Altbau. Das Objekt bot bequem Platz für sechs Erwachsene (zwei separate Räumlichkeiten mit Doppelbetten und ein Zimmer mit zwei Einzelliegen, dazu zwei Bäder). Trotz der innerstädtischen Lage erstaunlich ruhig.
Absprache mit Vermieter verlief weitgehend unproblematisch. Vielen Dank an dieser Stelle noch einmal für den wunderbaren Restauranttip (Bistro au Cours, Cours Juilien 13, fünf MInuten zu Fuß). Fazit: Empfehlenswerte Unterkunft in quirligem Viertel, bestens geeignet, um eine tolle Stadt zu entdecken.
