About Michel Cerdan

I was raised in Marseilles. I now live in Paris but I still find Marseilles is one of the most fantastic cities in France. When I found out this apartment, I literary fell in love with this old authentic building. I decided to completely renovate it with traditional Mediterranean materials only in order to have a cosy place. I love to share with my hosts my enthusiasm about the city, its history and its modern development.

Michel Cerdan purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Michel Cerdan chose Hôtel de Ville

I know Marseilles very well and I think it is an ideal spot to explore the city with its super central location. A few steps away from le Vieux Port, the historic Old district (le Panier). Also close to the new must-see museum MUCEM.

Why don't you go and treat yourself with a drink at the Intercontinental Palace?

Easy access to the beaches, to the lovely Calanques and Frioul Island.

What makes this apartment unique

- Perfect location in the heart of the Old City

- Quality and charm of the apartment

- Wonderful view

- Sunny rooftop terrace

- Local stores

Very central with an amazing view!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in this lovely flat for a week in July with my two children. It is comfortable, well-equipped and clean. Absolutely charming! On the plus side, there were separate sleeping areas for parents and children, great Wifi and a washing machine and dishwasher. On the minus side, the main bathroom smelt a bit mildly and it is on the forth floor with no elevator. However, the owner told me about the elavator ahead of time, so it was my bad luck I sprained my ankle and had to drag my luggage and myself down those steep and tricky stairs! Overall, we had a beautiful stay and the convenient location of this flat makes it superb value for the money.

Great home base for Marseille

  • 5 of 5

Lots of character and all the comforts we needed. Our host was very helpful. The location couldn't have been better, 5 minute walk to the old port. Incredible view. Would definitely stay here again.

Nice Apartment with a Wonderful View

  • 4 of 5

We stayed three nights at the apartment while visiting with our daughter who lives in the south of France. The view is exactly as noted here and along with the history of the building and location is a major plus. You are steps away from Vieux Port and taking the stairs adjacent to the building leads you into the older neighborhoods of Marseille. The apartment is updated and in great shape in an older building. We did not prepare much food in the apartment because we tend to want to sample the cuisine of the area, but the kitchen area was adequate for the purpose. The beds were comfortable. A wonderful place to wake up to in the morning and gaze out onto the port and city at night, just be prepared to climb for that view.

We live in a suburb of Baltimore, MD, in Perry Hall.

A Gorgeous View

  • 4 of 5

This a a good apartment if you appreciate history and the sights of Marseilles! But, be prepared to climb 4 flights (as Monsieur Cerdon warns)! It would be difficult for families with young children !

It is not easy to slip out for lunch or some groceries and return...so you should prepare your schedule ahead of time!

The kitchen was lacking in utensils for food preperation, but had lots of flatware and dishes, etc.

We loved exploring the Panier district (oldest in the area) and had a great lunch there!

We also took the bus to Notre Dame de la Gard...the cathedral you see from the window of the apartment!

There is lots of history to learn in this ancient city!

appartement central et charmant avec une vue magnifique sur le vieux port et Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 6 très belles journées à Marseille dans cet appartement ultra central et où il fait vraiment bon vivre!

La vue est magnifique et l'appartement est arrangé avec beaucoup de goût et d'âme. De là, on peut visiter tout le centre à pied et on se sent très vite intégré dans la vie marseillaise!

Michel, le propriétaire, est très engagé et se donne beaucoup de peine pour nous conseiller et rendre le séjour encore plus agréable. Nous ne pouvons que recommander l'appartement!

Wir sind sehr zufrieden!

  • 5 of 5

Eine sehr schöne Wohnung, tolle Lage, fantastische Sicht über die Dächer der Stadt bis zur Notre Dame de la Garde. Die Kommubikation mit dem Anbieter von der Kontaktaufnahme bis zur Schlüsselübergabe sehr angenehm. Würden wir hier nochmal übernachten, wenn wir wieder in Marseille sind? Eindeutig ja!
