Great apartment, great location, great host!

  • 5 of 5

This modern apartment is well located, a block away from the beach, a short walk to the old port (Vieux Port) as well as many other must-see sites. If a short walk is not your thing, there are bus stops two blocks away with connections to anywhere in the city.

The apartment has everything you would need to make your stay memorable. The living room is comfortable and well laid out, the bedroom has a very comfortable mattress and pillows that ensures a good night’s sleep. The bathroom is modern and functional with a lovely large shower.

There is also a very well equipped kitchen if you enjoy cooking, which we do, and to this end there is a good Casino Supermarket right there on the corner and also a great Carrefour Supermarket just three blocks up. There was even a dishwasher which was an unexpected and very welcome bonus.

And to top this all, the apartment has a lovely long balcony that runs along the length of the apartment with direct access to it from the living room, the kitchen and the bedroom. And by the way, it was on this balcony where we had all our meals, where a gentle breeze is almost always pleasantly present.

The owner, Marie, is a wonderful host, very attentive and quick to respond to any queries. We stayed here for a month and truly had a wonderful time. Thank you Marie, we will see you again soon!

Great apartment, fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is well equipped, neat and tidy and very easy to keep that way. The south facing balcony is a great place to have a coffee or a bite to eat, watch the world go by and soak up the sun. Mme. Fabre is wonderful and attentive to any and every need.

Everything one could want is within a short walk - supermarkets, bakeries, fruit and veg. shops, organic food store, local cafe/bars (or ~10 mins to Irish/Brit pub restaurants at the marina), banks/ATMs and of course the beach!

Only small gripe is the internet service can be rather patchy, mainly around peak access times (but very good otherwise).

I stayed here for just short of one month and wished it was longer - highly recommended!

Awesome experience!

  • 5 of 5

Ms. Fabre was incredible! She greeted us at the time we were arriving with no problem. Her apartment is really great, being only a black coffee away from the beach and very close to the harbor. A couple of really cool pastry and restaurant places either a block away from the apartment or right across the streets. The apartment had everything we needed. The porch was incredible and the sleeping arrangements were great. She provided maps, wine, washer/dryer and beach equipment for us. The city of Marsailles is general is a great coastal town, very relaxing. The people are very nice and treated us great even though our French was very poor to non existent. I would definitely recommend her place and Marsailles.

Excellent place to stay, near the Old port

  • 5 of 5

Very nice apartment with a superb location - just 150 m from the "Plage des Catalans", and a just a 10 min walk away from the old port. Convenient to get in and out of Marseille if you are arriving with a car - like we did. The owner has a garage and you can make arrangements to use it.

A nice balcony that spans along the whole length of the apartment was a place where we enjoyed "al fresco" breakfasts hawing a glimpse of a sea view as well.

The apartment is well equipped and we did not miss a thing.

It has a fully equipped bathroom with plenty of shower room.

There are fans for cooling and you really do not need the air conditioning as the cool breeze is always coming in from the sea and it keeps the apartment air cool enough for the pleasant nights sleep. The owner, Marie, is a great host that has made us feel welcome and we thank her for a war welcome and for taking care of our needs.

We wholeheartedly recommend this apartment for 3 persons stay in Marseille.

Séjour très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Je suis restée un mois dans l'appartement de Madame Fabre qui est idéalement situé, à 200m de la plage. Il est parfaitement équipé pour un long séjour (petit et gros electro ménager, ustensiles de cuisine), avec une grande buanderie très pratique. Le balcon est suffisamment large pour y déjeuner, profiter du soleil toute la journée et du coucher de soleil sur les îles du Frioul. Le quartier est agréable. Madame Fabre, très attentive au bien être de ses hôtes, fait tout pour faciliter et rendre le séjour agréable.

Avec mes remerciements pour votre accueil.
