Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Patricia's loft is extremely well situated, yet absolutely quiet. Spotlessly clean, everything we could possibly have needed for our six week stay was supplied. The loft itself has plenty of space, yet it is configured so that there is an intimate, cozy feeling. Patricia herself is as charming as her loft and even graciously had the piano tuned for our stay. Of course we will want to stay in Patricia's loft when we visit Marseilles again -- actually we would be happy to live there forever!

An amazing loft apartment in a good location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Patricia's loft. It is well equipped, well located and spacious. Patricia is friendly and welcoming, though her welcome talk was rather long, but I think she was just bonding with us!

Also, we recommend asking her to book Billy the taxi man to collect you from the station. (We strongly advise using the direct Eurostar if you're coming from the uk.) He's friendly and helpful too.

The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that the price is very much at the top end of the range for Marseille, so some people might find it a bit 'steep'.

Nevertheless we had a fabulous holiday in this unique, original and modern apartment.

Beautiful apartment. Beautiful city.

  • 5 of 5

Patricia's apartment is beautiful. It is situated in a fantastic location and a perfect base for exploring Marseille and the surrounding area. The apartment is luxurious, very well equipped and finished to a very high specification. Finding the apartment was really easy following the clear instructions we received from Patricia. We were warmly welcomed by Cecile (Patricia was away) at the arranged time and shown how all the amenities (air con, wifi, TV etc.) worked and given some useful suggestions of where to go, restaurants etc. The fridge was well stocked which was a really nice touch.

We hired a car for the last few days and parking is really easy in the Monthyon car park which is just across the road from the apartment. Buses and the Metro are easy to use but we mainly walked as the apartment is so centrally located.

I cannot recommend the apartment highly enough.

We had an amazing holiday in Marseille. Thank you Patricia and Cecile.

Fabulous fully-equipped loft

  • 4 of 5

Once inside, the loft is a haven where we didn't mind hanging out for a day of relaxation rather than site-seeing. We've stayed at many vacation rentals over the years, and this one by far is one of the best equipped. The kitchen was incredible - it would have been nice to host a large party. The bathrooms came with spa amenities that added to the luxury. The only downside was the entry path from the street, which is a bit obscure. After figuring it out the first time though, it was manageable. Highly recommended.

Excellent flat, great location

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented this loft in the Opéra district for a long weekend in early November. Patricia's attention to detail and the setup of the property made the flat ideal for a group of friends looking to explore Marseille and the surrounding region.

The location of the flat is ideal, as the loft is a quick five to ten minute walk from the Vieux Port: close enough for easy access, but quiet enough to be outside of the hustle and bustle. Extremely close to lots of shopping and dining options, and the Métro station is a short walk away as well.

The flat itself is well configured for small groups, between the two bedrooms in the upstairs, the Murphy bed near the kitchen, and an additional bed near the laundry. At no time did we ever feel like we didn't have enough space. The place is tastefully designed without sacrificing practicality or comfort. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, and having a pre-stocked refrigerator was convenient.

Patricia was attentive to all of our needs, from the booking process up through checkout; very responsive and easy to work with. Her flexibility helped to ensure that we didn't need to focus on the logistics of our visit, and rather could focus on our time in the great city that is Marseille. Would highly recommend to friends, family, or associates visiting the region.
