Lovely apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This top floor apartment, with lift, is beautiful - tasteful decor and sparkling clean. There's everything you could need for making meals and coffee, very convenient shower room/toilet and delightful terrace at the rear. Wifi is fast and reliable and air-conditioning excellent. Restaurants, bakers, supermarkets and places of interest are within easy walking distance on each side of the Vieux Port - all totally convenient.

Victor gave us a warm welcome, and it was great to meet his parents,Helene and Roland, at the end of our stay - thank you so much for a wonderful trip - we hope to be back!

excellent flat

  • 5 of 5

we stayed one week in this really confortable flay. Everything was as we expected; the flat is very clean,neat and cosy, very true to the pictures.It'svery bright, the bed is very confortable.

It's very quiet too, but at the same time so close to the harbour!

let's not forget the terrace , we used even though it was February!

so as you can understand we really enjoyed our week there and we recommend it.

last but not least the owner is very pleasant; she let us stay in the flat until we took our TGV back home .

Fabulous Harbor View Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Extremely enjoyable stay at this charming top-floor apartment (with elevator! :-) above the Vieux Port (Old Harbor) central district of Marseille. The balcony views over the harbor are stunning day & night while the large garden terrace at the back of the apartment affords calm & quiet right in the heart of this bustling city center. We loved going to the traditional fish market on the harbor quays in the morning! Many cafes, restaurants, art galleries, shopping options are on its doorstep as well as the Opera House. Walking down the harbor, you will also find within minutes from the apartment the Haussman-designed city boulevards such as Rue de la République with its Paris-style building and many stores & eateries, the recently opened InterContinental in a wonderfully renovated grand landmark building (the city’s former central hospital… if I remember correctly :-), the original and very pittoresque central district known as Le Panier with its Vieille Charité museum and, sitting above the sea at the end of the harbor behind a concrete lace covering the entire structure, the MUCEM museum: both museums are superbly curated and well worth the visit; also the MUCEM is built around an ancient fort that is open to the public for the very first time. The Notre-Dame-De-La-Garde church with its towering gold statue of St Mary sits above the harbor overlooking the city. A top notch location for a very smart apartment that has been carefully renovated and decorated to stylishly incorporate all comfort and mod cons. It definitely made our first visit to Marseille a must-see in a must-stay apartment that we would definitely recommend and book again!

My stay in Marseille could not have been better spent at another address. In fact I am trying to rent it again and it is very unfortunately booked during the dates of my next stay. It is such a comfortable, well-appointed, perfectly located stylish apartment that I am trying to change the dates of my stay to make sure I can rent this apartment again. The owner is extremely helpful and pleasant: thanks to her, I discovered great restaurants & cultural spots I would not have thought of going to.

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

The owner of the apartment most helpful and it is in the best possible location in the heart of Marseille right next to the Vieux Port. There are shops and restaurants in every direction.

The apartment is beautifully furnished with every appliance that we could have needed during our stay. The bedroom is very comfortable and is quiet and cool with air conditioning and shutters to ensure a peaceful nights sleep. The view of the Vieux Port from the balcony is stunning and the terrace garden on the other side is a great place to have breakfast - we often had our coffee and fresh croissants out there from the little patisserie across the road. We would definitely stay here again next time we visit Marseille.
