|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Ideally located in a residential area in the south of the city, near the Mediterranean sea, very close to two beautiful parks, the National park of the Calanques, a marina. Located in a very calm area, 500 meters feet to the typical village of Mazargues which has nice small stores.
Born inhabitants of marseille, we really love our city and region. We enjoy hiking and climbing in the Calanques (amazing creeks very close to our house) and we'd love to share our passion and to give advices on the differents activities, places to visit. We work in art which also helps to give some good ideas of cultural visits.
This is a lovely studio, highly recommended by someone that is not normally easily pleased. I stayed here for 4 weeks in July, visiting Marseille for work and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is well-equipped, spacious, easy to keep clean, shady, with practical modern furniture and a lovely patio for al-fresco dining. It is located in a quiet cul-de-sac, very close to nearby "village-like" Mazargues amenities (banks, shops, supermarkets, brasseries, etc) and bus stops to city centre or the plage. There are also two "le-velo" bicycle stations nearby, very handy for those late night returns after the last metro/bus. The place is run by a restless but very friendly and very discrete couple, Cathy and Philippe who live next door. They were very responsive and made sure above and beyond that my stay was enjoyable. I cannot praise them and the studio enough and will definitely return here.
two great excursions :
- the typical and well known small town of Cassis with a beautiful marina (19 km from our house.)http://www.cassis.fr/
- the sea shuttle from the marina close to our house (about 10 mn car away) which will take you to the center of Marseille ( to the Vieux port / the old harbour, to the MUCEM : new museum http://www.mucem.org/).
