Stunning apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great two weeks stay in this lovely apartment. From the first contact Apolline was a pleasure to deal with. The apartment proved to be even better than we had hoped. Comfortable, stylish and well equiped with a simply wonderful view. We particularly enjoyed the different sunsets every night and watching the boats sailing in and out of the port. It was so good to be staying in a city and be able to sleep so peacefully at night.

Marseille has a lot to offer as a holiday destination and it is easy to travel further afield by public transport. We would particularly recommend a boat trip to see the Callanques and bus trips to Aix en Provence and Martigues.

We would have absolutely no hesitation in staying in this apartment again in the future.

Fantastic spot for old and young alike

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this amazing apartment for 5 days in late October and I can't recommend it highly enough! We are a family with a 4.5 year old and an 11 mo. old. The apartment was perfect for our needs. First, let me say that Apolline went above and beyond before we had even arrived in France! She had a safety lock installed on the balcony door to ensure that our kids could not open it without adult supervision (the apartment is high enough that this could be a concern with small kids). She met us there when we arrived, tired and jet lagged, found us a parking spot(!), and welcomed us like family and with a pre-stocked fridge with items we needed for the kids. The apartment was spacious and clean, with every amenity we could have imagined. There is one bed, and then a separate alcove where we were able to set up a travel crib for the baby and a floor futon for our older child. Restaurants in Marseille open much later than we are used to, so having a fully functional kitchen was key to our happiness (there is a grocery store a few blocks away). Making dinner and watching the sun set from the apartment was perfect. We also appreciated the full bathtub and laundry machines. We parents even managed to get the kids in bed with enough time to enjoy the lingering sun rays and some wine by ourselves out on the balcony one night! :-)

Our 4.5 year old especially liked the view of castles on the islands as well as watching the large ferries that come and go from the harbor - the view out the windows was always changing and always interesting. The windows are amazing, so our older son never even needed to go onto the balcony to enjoy the view. Also, there is an easily accessible kid-friendly beach right below... and the old wooden elevator in the building was a huge hit. What more can two small kids want?

The location was perfect. We came to Marseille to attend a scientific conference that was being held at the Palais du Pharo. The venue was only a couple minute walk from the apartment, and had amazing views of the city's harbor, as well as a fun playground for the kids and beautiful garden space. Walking in to sightsee in town was also very easy to do (although is far enough to require a baby carrier and/or stroller). The bus system was fairly easy to navigate, and there was so much to do and see downtown!

We loved Marseille, and this apartment, and would stay here again in a heartbeat if the chance ever arises! Thank you Apolline!

Owner's Response: Merci à Rebecca pour ce très élogieux commentaire. Je suis heureuse que cette famille américaine venue de l'autre bout des Etats Unis ait apprécié. Il était normal qu'avec 2 petits enfants toutes les conditions de sécurité et d'accueil soient renforcées pour les rassurer après un si long voyage.!! Qu'ils gardent un beau souvenir de leur séjour à Marseille et de notre appartement est pour nous un grand plaisir et une belle récompense. Merci à eux. Apolline

Pure Dead Brilliant

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I arrived from Glasgow Scotland at 8.15 pm to the most enthusiastic warm welcome from Apolline. The apartment was beautifully prepared and romantically lit. Apolline provided groceries to enable supper and breakfast without stress.

The description of the apartment and amenities is totally accurate but does not do the apartment justice. The décor and furniture is tasteful and elegant and all equipment is of top quality. We were able to take advantage of local produce and cook in the fully equipped kitchen. Catalans beach, a full 3 minutes from floor to sand is excellent and has showers and toilets. In the apartment there is all you need for a day on the sand – beach mats, umbrella, cool box, and “toys”. Within 2 blocks there are shops, bars, restaurants; but if you want more choice a 15 minute leisurely walk [or 3 minutes by bus] takes you to Vieux Port. The bus stop outside the apartment will take you all over Marseille. The bus drivers are very helpful and friendly.

We had a wonderful relaxing stay and particularly enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the swimmers, the yachts, the ferry boats and the swallows at sunset – sunsets to die for.
