Overview

Photos and Description of this holiday studio in 2nd - Panier District - Le balcon du Lacydon

Studio with view of the Old Port

A 3-star studio for 2 people, ideally located in the heart of the lively Marseille, at the entrance to the Panier neighbourhood and of the Old Port.

The Old Port is the starting point to every kind of sports, cultural or relaxing places of interest.

This studio with view of the Old Port has a little South oriented terrace with table and chairs. There is also a kitchen equipped with a dishwasher and a washer/dryer.

This all comfort carefully decorated studio has been fully renovated in March 2014. You will find a room with a large bed (160 x 200 cm), a fully equipped kitchen (with 2 induction hobs, an extractor, a dishwasher, a traditional/microwaves oven, a refrigerator, and a washer/dryer), a shower room with walk-in shower, and separated toilets.

You can also easily visit the Saint Victor abbey, the oldest abbey in Marseille, as well as Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde, our 'Holy Mother', overlooking the whole Marseille and watching over us (small train or bus 220 m away). And you can go to the MUCEM (Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations), the Fort Saint Jean, the Pharo Palace, Marseille Cathedral, and the Panier neighbourhood (the oldest area of Marseille). Marseille offers a lot of great wonders to be visited.

To relax, you can go straight by bus to many beaches along the cornice, or take a boat from the Old Port and head to the calanques, to the Pointe Rouge beach, to L'Estaque, or to the Frioul wild islands and stop at the Castle of If, made famous by the novel 'The Count of Monte-Cristo' from Alexandre Dumas.

Free services included in the price:

You will have access to broadband Internet, free telephone, cable TV with cinema channels and possibility to record films, a DVD player, a hi-fi stereo system, board games, card games and to many books and guide books on Marseille and the Provence region. The sheets and towels are supplied; beds will be made upon your arrival.

Additional services available upon request and reservation:

A welcome basket, massages and beauty care, baby-sitting, cot, high chair, safety car seat, and airport transfer.

The apartment has been rated 3-stars by the City of Marseille.

Lovely flat in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This modern studio has everything you could need for a wonderful stay. It is very clean and very well equipt. The location could not be better with plenty of places to eat nearby. Lovely to sit on the balcony watching the world go by with the bonus of the view of the port. Claire is a wonderful host and nothing was to much trouble. From the booking process to picking us up and dropping us off at the airport, everything was easy, which is just what you want from a holiday. She gave us loads of information which was most helpful. We really enjoyed our week in Marseille and will definitely return. Thanks again Claire for all your help, it was lovely to meet you.

Wunderschönens Appartment mit super Blick auf dem Vieux Port:)!

  • 5 of 5

Das Appartment war super ausgestattet zum Kochen. Auf dem schnuckeligem Balkon hat man einen wunderschönen Blick auf den alten Hafen. Die Wohnung ist sehr gepflegt und modern eingerichtet. Claire hat viele hilfreiche Tips geben über Marseille. Somit hatten wir einen unvergesslich tollen Urlaub! Wir würden jederzeit wieder kommen 😄

A perfect base for exploring Marseille

  • 5 of 5

Despite its size, this studio is beautifully decorated, very well equipped and perfect for a couple. It is situated just behind the Vieux Port and, even though it's very near all the bars and restaurants, it's surprisingly quiet. Claire gave us a very warm welcome and provided lots of really useful information and a map which was well-worn by the end of our week! We'll definitely be recommending it to others!

Un avis ? Y revenir.

  • 5 of 5

Ce studio, parfaitement équipé, est agencé avec goût. Chaque m2 est optimisé et on s'y sent vraiment bien. Il est évident que tout a été pensé pour le confort et le bien être des occupants. Une localisation idéale permettant de découvrir en flânant le Panier, le Mucem, le Fort St Jean ou de rejoindre rapidement l'embarcadère pour les ballades en bateaux. Claire est une hôtesse agréable et disponible. Mon point de chute Marseillais est tout trouvé !

Location exceptionnelle

  • 5 of 5

Le studio est conforme à la description , très bien équipé et agencé , dans un quartier calme extrêmement bien situé : depuis le balcon on voit, entre les immeubles , le vieux port qui est à environ 200m , le MUCEM est à moins de 10 minutes de marche ..

A noter : la plupart des transports en commun passent à quelques minutes à pied du studio ce qui permet de se déplacer très facilement dans la ville qui est assez étendue( si vous restez plusieurs jours n'hésitez pas à acheter un " transpass" très pratique et peu onéreux si vous vous vous déplacez souvent , pour cela il vous faudra remettre à la régie des transport une photo d'identité ) .

Claire est une hôtesse chaleureuse, toujours à notre disposition pendant le séjour. Ses conseils sur Marseille sont pertinents.

En résumé : une location à conseiller sans modération .
