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 2nd - Panier District

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

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.

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!

Tolle Lage

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung liegt zentral und hat eine tolle Aussicht. Wir haben uns hier wirklich sehr wohl gefühlt, auch abends auf den Dach :-) Der Vermieter hat uns noch viele Tipps zu Unternehmungen und Restaurants zur Verfügung gestellt und ist super nett!

Die Wohnung können wir nur weiter empfehlen.

Die Wohnung ist für einen Städtetrip optimal gelegen. Der Ausblick ist so schön wie auf jeder Marseiller Ansichtskarte. Die Ausstattung des Appartements und die Kommunikation/Service könnten nicht besser sein.

Lediglich die etwas abschüssige Dachterrasse mit leidlichen Hockern ist ein kleiner Wehrmutstropfen...(hatten wir anders erwartet).

Zusammenfassend aber jeden Cent wert und sehr empfehlenswert!

Geschmackvoll und sensationeller Blick

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, mit persönlicher Note und sehr funktionell.

Die Sicht auf den alten Hafen ist grandios. Die Schlüsselübergabe hat problemlos geklappt, der Vermieter hat im Vorfeld eine ganze Reihe sehr hilfreicher und umfassender Informationen gegeben.

Der einzige Wermutstropfen ist die 4. Etage ohne Lift, aber dies überwindet man gerne, wenn man sich dann in der wunderbaren Wohnung wiederfindet.

In der Nähe gibt es viele Restaurants, das Viertel ist lebendig und interessant.

Es waren wunderbare Tage, danke,

Michel und Pamela

Merci beaucoup
