Very charming, peaceful and leafy oasis in central Marseille

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the loveliest and well appointed apartments we have stayed in around the world over about 30 years of travelling and we have stayed in a lot. Having air conditioning and a lift made a big difference in the hot weather. Fred and Christine were very amiable and helpful hosts. We would definitely stay again if they would have us. It is probably best not to have a car while staying at the apartment since parking is a hassle but the Metro, tram and St Charles Gare are all very close by as is the Monoprix supermarket.

Spacious, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apt. for 4 nights in September. It is large, comfortable, and well appointed. Perfect location- walking distance to all the major sights but also on public transportation when you're tired. Lots of huge windows opening onto a planted courtyard -a real treat in the middle of a big city. The air conditioning worked perfectly as we had a bit of hot weather. The owners were very pleasant and easy to deal with. We would definitely stay here again on another visit to Marseille.

Spacious, comfortable, well-equipped, convenient to metro, bus and trams and a lift.

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed staying in this apartment. It was spacious, well-equipped with dish washer, washing machine, modern cooker, excellent bathroom and shower facilities, and air-conditioned. There were ample pots, pans, dishes, cutlery etc, and both 'fridge and freezer. Our only complaint was the lack of cups for tea as the only cups (apart from very delicate China ones) were tiny espresso coffee cups. It was within reasonably easy walking distance of the vieux Porte but the bus, metro and trams were close by - about 100 yards or so. There were two small supermarkets nearby and an excellent, larger one about 500 yards down from the apartment! there was an excellent boulangerie/ patisserie on the way there. There was also a small but efficient lift in the building.

The owners, Christine and Frederic were very pleasant and helpful and took time to show us how the different equipment worked. I would recommend this quiet, property.

A Superb Bathroom

  • 5 of 5

A typical old fashioned Marseille flat has been beautifully renovated with all modern appliances and furnishings. We were all four most comfortable and marveled at the speed with which the electric stove top heated the water. Fred and Christine were most accommodating as hosts and ensured that our stay was memorable. We would like to return some day. (I asked them where they would live whilst we were staying at the flat and they responded "in our caravan". I asked whether they would park it in the street somewhere. No, they responded, in the woods nearby),

A spacious oasis in the heart of Marseille

  • 5 of 5

We truly got more than we could have hoped for when we rented Fréderic and Christine's lovely apartment. They stayed up to welcome us as we arrived in the middle of the night, to show us around the flat, hand over the keys, and leave us with all the information we needed to make our stay a great one. My son (who is almost two) and I enjoyed daily baths in the large bathtub. The views are picturesque and full of character, the kitchen is well-equipped. There are hundreds of books, CDs, and DVDs, and lots of magazines and brochures to give you ideas of how best to spend your time in Marseille. They even left us a bottle of rosé and sparkling water. Highly recommended!

Oasis in Marseille

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I found this to be a phenomenal rental, having rented different apartments across France. This is exactly what we were looking for in a vacation rental - lots of space, well-located, quiet and stylish unit, and very well equipped. The hosts were extremely welcoming and accommodating, and we would happily stay here again. It was also a fantastic rental for travelling with our young son, with excellent kitchen and bathroom amenities. Spotless, spacious, and really gelt like home for the few days we were able to be there!
