Easy home base and lovely owner

  • 4 of 5

I am not quite sure if we met Joelle or not, but the lady that welcomed us and checked us out was lovely. She was quite friendly and made sure we knew where everything was located. My advice, do not waste your time eating on the restaurant row behind the apartment- we ate at two restaurants and they were both mediocre at best and the service folks were rude- even by French standards. The only complaint about the apartment- the internet was horrendous. I work while on vacation and need the internet- there were two internet connections to choose from and both hardly worked and when they did it was slow- I realize this is likely not an issue for most on vacation. I know the owner has at least one other property. This place was just fine, there is a free ferry to cross to the other side of the bay.

Owner's Response: It was me, Joelle, who received you at the apartment. Sorry, for the internet, in fact the network was slow. It was a pleasure to receive you Best regards, Joelle

The perfect holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I very much enjoyed our week in the apartment. A short stroll to restaurants and shops and quite spacious provided us with the stay in relaxing week we were looking for.

We would come back to this appartment any time.

Idéalement situé pour visiter la ville, cet appartement à 20 mètres du Ferry Boat, en un lieu où l'activité est intense, est parfaitement isolé avec du quadruple vitrage et nous assure un sommeil réparateur. Climatisé et bien agencé, le confort participe au plaisir du séjour à Marseille. Bravo Joëlle...

Good Localization

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is very close to the Old Port, the inside photos corresponds to the place. It's on the ground floor of an old building. It's near many markets where we bought all things we needed for the breakfast and bath. Joelle gave us many information. The apartment was clean and also were the towels and sheets, but the bed wasn't very nice. There are many good restaurants, pubs, metro near by.

Owner's Response: Effectivement, il s'agit d'un vieil immeuble dont la construction date de Louis XIV. A l'origine c'était des entrepôts pour stocker les barils d'huile d'olive que Marseille exportait. Classé au Patrimoine de la Ville, sa transformation à usage d'habitation est réussie et constitue une surface d'habitation très recherchée.
