- english, french
As citizens of the world we love France and in particular, Marseille. In addition, we adore travelling and discovering other cultures. We know you will enjoy our home so it is with great pleasure that we invite you to discover our world at the Old Port Resort Marseille.
Why Owner chose 2nd Arrondissement
Because Marseille is an extraordinary city with an long passionate history, archealogical and geological wonders to see as well as a warm welcoming climat for most of the year! To discover and live in Marseille there is no better place to stay than the Old Port. Marseille (originally Massalia) is a city that has delighted and surprised for over 2600 years and the Old Port has been at the heart of Marseille since its founding. Massalia was born on the shore where today you can find the magnificent residence Old Port Resort Marseille – an exceptional apartment. The birth of Massalia in 600 BC did not result from a war or a conquest by force, but from a love story between Gyptis, the daughter of the local Celtic king, and Protis, a passing Greek merchant from Phocaea.

A really terrific experience. Wonderful hosts provided us with a lot of information to help plan our vacation. When we arrived the apartment exceeded our expectations. Simply a lovely place to be. Thank you so much Andre and Georgina.
Beautiful Property & Wonderfull service
In all our travel over the years throughout Europe this is the nicest property we have ever stayed at. Rochelle was wonderful to deal with from the moment we checked in. The only reason I can't give this 5 stars is our vehicle was broken into during our stay in a car park that we were told to use. It was not the fault of the property but we didn't feel completely safe in the area.
We are delighted that you appreciated the apartment and our service. We are sincerely sorry for your rental car. We have never had a problem like this before and are very sad it happened to you.
Fantastic location and the apartment was perfect. It had everything you could think of and the view of the old port was perfect. We will definitely stay here again when we are in Marseille
Thanks for being excellent guests and it would be a pleaure to welcome you again.
Fabulous view, fabulous location!
We liked the views depicted in the listing, but they paled in comparison to the view we saw as we walked in. Rochelle met us when we arrived and gave us a tour of this beautifully designed apartment. It exceeded all of our expectations!
Thank you we are thrilled that you enjoyed the apartment
Wonderful location and Apartment
The apartment was so wonderful you almost don’t want to leave! The view is breathtaking no matter what time of the day! So many things just outside the door. Georgina was great w responding back to my questions. Rochell was so helpful too! We would come back to Marseille just to stay in this place.
Thank you for the super review and for being such good guests. It was a pleasure to host you and we would welcome you back whole heartedly.
Absolutely Fantastic Apartment!
You see the photos and wonder if the place could possibly measure up in real life -- it actually exceeds expectations. The apartment is spotless, tastefully decorated and comfortable. Rochelle, the property manager, is a delight, and the location is fantastic, with tons of restaurants, ice cream shops and cafes and fun shops. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Ideally located on the Old Port, the apartment is less than 15 minutes’ walk from the MUCEM (the main museum) and is at the foot of the Panier where you can enjoy life in Marseille.
Nearby, there are many varied restaurants offering great food at excellent value for money.
The old port is of course a permanent wonder to behold! Nonetheless, do not forget to go to the outdoor fish market where local fishermen offer you their nights catch. You will find it on each morning a few minutes’ walk away at the top of the old port in front of the Canebière. Close by is the Ombrière (a covered area made of reflecting material), where the ferry shuttles leave for the mythical Château d’If and the Frioul islands.
Do not miss the Mucem, where you can not only see exhibitions but also visit free of charge the magnificent architecture of Rudy Ricciotti and stroll along the ramparts of Fort Saint Jean where you can watch displays and discover the incredible views.
Go to the Panier, a neighborhood with typical winding streets, artists and the museum of the Old Charity.
Opposite the Resort across the Old Port visit the abbey of Saint Victor, the palace and gardens of the Pharo , and of course, Our Lady of the Guard church.
The best shopping centers in Marseille are 5 to 10 minutes’ walk from the Resort: the Center Bourse mall is where you will find the FNAC and Galleries Lafayette
The Les Docks is a mall composed of Boutiques and designer shops as well restaurants. Les Terrasses de Marseille is a large mall containing major brands and restaurants and Monoprix for everyday shopping .
In addition, the apartment is at the foot of the Panier shopping district, which is overflowing of boutiques and local designers.
