Luxury! Absolutely fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

I had an excellent stay, I wish there was an option for 6 stars! The loft is even more beautiful than in the photos ( its much Better than 5 stars hotel). Stylish( very tastefully), clean, beatiful and charming home in the heart of city! The shopping, restaurant, bars, was very close( GREAT location), but very quiet at the night so no problem sleeping.

The beds and pillows were high quality! Patricia was an IDEAL host!

I would highly recommend staying at Patricia home. I would love stay there again. Vikki & Y.

Superb location and elegant apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the apartment that was only minutes away from the old port.

It is very quiet, has a generous lay-out and is elegantly decorated.

The host is very friendly and accommodating.

We hope we can return soon.

An absolutely amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

I really cannot say enough about how wonderful this apartment was!!! My wife and I spend a week there and we both agree we could not have made a better choice. The apartment is quite spacious and well laid out. In fact we could have easily brought two couples to stay with us. There is ample light, a fully equipped kitchen and all needed amenities. Location was also a plus - only a couple of minutes from the old harbor. Patricia was awesome and offered us so much needed help. We will certainly stay there when we visit Marseille in the future - hopefully soon!!!!

Light, elegance and convenience!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem of an apartment that was!!!! My wife and I stayed there for a week. We wished we had another couple or two of our friends staying with us. Space was certainly there. The apartment is nicely laid out on two floors and had a fully equipped kitchen, the most modern washing machine and dryer we have ever experiences. It was a 5 min walk from the beautiful old harbor and the metro line. Patricia was most welcoming and helpful. She responded to our questions promptly and did all what she could to accommodate our needs. We would love to go back, hopefully soon.

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.
