1st - Old Port (Vieux Port) Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom (4 Sleeps) Duplex Apartment with breathtaking vew.

Nestled between the Opera house and the harbor of Marseille, this prime location offers every imaginable convenience: transportation, walking areas, a fish market, direct access to the islands of Frioul and Chateau D’If, numerous shopping, and some of the city’s most noteworthy restaurants.

Located in the Vieux Port district, this sunny and sprawling duplex apartment is approximately 1240 square feet and currently configured as 2 bedrooms with an upper level and an outdoor balcony offering a breathtaking view of the harbor and the Central Plaza, a charming Italian square. With a brand new bathroom, a well-equipped kitchen with top line appliances, a dining room with soaring ceilings, Provençal floor tiles and large beams, this space was designed to be luxurious and theatrical.

We have focused on every detail: from softness of the pillows, to the comfort of the couch, to the richness of the bath towels… While the apartment is modern, great care is put into the décor reflecting a Mediterranean style.

One last word… a welcome guide awaits you in the apartment, all with the intent of ensuring that your stay in Marseille is enjoyable and memorable.

comfortable, bright, great location

  • 5 of 5

So pleased as we walked in the door. Spacious, clean with beautiful open living area. Two separate bedrooms with comfortable queen size beds and good storage for clothing. Well appointed kitchen with all you need and a nice bathroom.

Great location within an easy walk to the metro, ferry and all the vieux port sights. Nice bakery a few doors down for a simple morning coffee and croissant as well as a small store for a quick grocery shop. Restaurants are plentiful just across the Cours Jean Ballard and many places to stop for an afternoon break and sit outside.

We would also enjoy a late afternoon break sitting in the comfortable living area with the sun shining in the open windows that lead to balconies. Nice view from this 4th floor duplex. That means 5 flights of stairs so would not work for someone who would have difficulty with this. For us it was not a problem and we enjoyed the view. Getting suitcases up and down upon arrival and departure was an effort but we were offered help.

We also appreciated the many guide books and maps that were in the duplex.

I would absolutely stay here again!

Ideal for family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had an idyllic family holiday at Marc's apartment for 11 days, my husband and I and our six year old twins. It is airy and bright, with lots of open floor space for playing, building of forts and driving matchbox cars. The fully equipped kitchen meant we could prepare most of our own meals (with fabulous ingredients from the Lafayette Gourmet grocery 10 minutes stroll away). The sunsets were magnificent over the Notre Dame de la Garde, and the harbour. The location of the apartment itself is superb, utterly walkable area, and not even 3 minutes to the Metro station. Once on the metro, you are 2 stops away from St Charles train station and can easily do day trips to the Calanques, Cassis and Aix-en-Provence. We would highly recommend this property and look forward to a repeat visit.

Great location, clean apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was in an excellent location in Marseille with beautiful views of the port and the streetscape, which was great for people watching and listening to the street musicians. The windows were nicely sound proofed so we could shut out the noise when we wanted. Parking was conveniently right across the street. The apartment was clean and well furnished, except during our stay the washing machine was broken so we couldn't do laundry. The stairs up to the apartment were indeed difficult with our suitcases, but we knew that when we booked. Marc was great to work with and provided good customer service. We would recommend this apartment providing you are healthy enough to climb four flights of narrow stairs with your luggage.

Many steps up-but a stunning view when arrive!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a short three-night stay in this lovely apartment. The location is perfect, in the heart of the old port with easy access to restaurants, shops, tours etc. This spacious apartment had more than enough room for our two couples. One important thing to note with this apartment is that it is a four-story walk-up, 108 steps, with no elevator. This may not be important to some people, however, if you are a senior citizen, with or without a fifty-pound suitcase this might be a consideration. The view is fantastic when you get there with large picture windows overlooking a large busy square. There is a wonderful patisserie just below where we enjoyed French pastries and coffee every morning. Sophie & Mathieu were very responsive when we needed something as well as Marc the apartment owner.
