About the property

calm and full of sunshine in the heart of Marseille, near metro and tram

In the center of Marseille (La Plaine / Cours Julien) here is a romantic hideaway in quiet. 2 small rooms (one room with a double bed) and a beautiful wooden terrace await you as if you were just in the countryside. The terrace overlooks the gardens and south. The apartment is on the first floor in old building with 2 floors at the bottom of a garden.

Metro (line 2) and Tram (line 2) are a short walk uphill and just one block you are already at La Plaine with its market and café terraces. The friendliest neighborhood in Marseille, bustling tourist hubbub but rejected the Old Port.

The apartment is ideal for a small break for two to discover Marseille. Or to find refuge after a day of work on the go. And we are at your disposal for any information (which discover in Marseille, where to eat, what walks, what beach ...)

nearby Metro 1 (Cours Julien) & 2 (locker) and tram (Eugène Pierre);

near shops (80m), restaurants, creators of the district (Cours Julien / La Plaine)

Rental three days, weekly, biweekly, and in low season, in the month.

Gays and lesbians are simply welcome.

Being of German, I speak fluent German, English and of course French.

About Fr. Plei

I am German and I came to Marseille the first time 25 years ago. And I felt in love with this chaotic town on the Mediterranean Sea.

Since we could buy this charming apartment, I am happy to welcome foreigners and I try to help as good as I can that you'll have a lovely stay in Marseille.

I also like to say: gay&lesbians are welcome!

Fr. Plei purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Fr. Plei chose 5th

When I saw this apartment the first time, I was totally charmed. A little jewel in the heart of Marseille, but quiet, so quiet that you are astonished when you sometimes hear from far away a car or a motorcycle.

The apartment was at this time rented by a good friend of mine and we spent marvelous moments on the terrace.

In 2003, the apartment underneath was to rent too and as I always dreamed to live in this part of the town, I moved in.

And better, when in 2006 he sold, I didn't hesitate to buy one moment. It is so rare to find an apartment with a big terrace (not a balcony!) in Marseille. And the view is on gardens.

And so we, my husband and me, are the happy owners and having the big pleasure to welcome people visiting Marseille.

What makes this apartment unique

The quarter Cours Julien / La Plaine is the quarter the most alive in Marseille with his markets, the cafés and restaurants and a lot of places to go. But is not the touristic center, it is really mixed.

The advantage of the apartment is, that you'll find this Marseille live by feet at five minutes, but the apartment itself is really calm.

You can reach quite everything by feet, but bot métros are near and the tram N°2 also. From the railway station is is only two halts.

Wonderful Appartment in Marseilles

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for the wonderful time we had staying in your appartement in Marseille. We loved sitting outside on your terrace enjoying the sun.... and this in January!!!

I also wanted to thank you for recommending the 'European Capital of Culture 2013'. We had a great time and will return.

Écrin de verdure au cœur de la ville

  • 4 of 5

Appartement atypique, plein de charme, fidèle aux photos et bien situé. Ce n'est pas le grand luxe, tout n'est pas parfait et sur certains points, il manque de praticité mais voila, on s'y sent bien ! Et cerise sur le gâteau, cette terrasse, juste improbable en plein centre ville ! Pour finir, merci à la propriétaire pour ses conseils, sa gentillesse et sa disponibilité.

Traumterrasse im besten Viertel

  • 5 of 5

Kontakt zur Vermieterin unkompliziert, sehr entgegenkommend bei An- und Abreise. Vielen Dank! Die Wohnung ist der Hit, die Terrasse einfach wundervoll und entspannend, Supermarkt 2 min. zu Fuß und die Wohnung im für uns allerbesten Viertel: wie der Prenzlauer Berg mit einsetzender, aber noch erträglicher Gentrifizierung. Wer Lust hat, kann ganz Marseille von hier aus zu Fuß erkunden. Internet prima, Küche winzig (aber vor der Tür gibt es zu jeder Tages- und Nachtzeit Essen in allen Preisklassen), Bad gemütlich. Zwischen den Stadterkundungen konnten wir auf der sonnigen Terrasse entspannen und uns sonnen. Draußen leben mitten in der Stadt. Absolut empfehlenswert.

Appartement douillet au cœur d'un quartier sympa

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cet appartement bien aménagé, décoré avec goût. Anne, la propriétaire, est particulièrement chaleureuse et disponible. Notre seul regret : ne pas avoir profité de la jolie terrasse en raison d'une météo capricieuse.

Ruhig, idyllisch und zentral

  • 5 of 5

Unsere Erwartungen aus dem Inserat wurden positiv übertroffen. Eine sehr zweckmäßige und geschmackvolle Ausstattung erwartete uns vor Ort. Die wunderschöne und große Terrasse ermöglichte uns, auf "unserer" Morgenbank den ersten Kaffee zu uns zu nehmen, mittags im Liegestuhl zu sonnen und abends am großen Tisch im Schatten bei romantischer Beleuchtung zu dinieren.

Die Betreuung durch die Vermieterin war vor und während des Aufenthalts, sowie bei der Abreise ausführlich, informativ und angenehm. Besonders entgegenkommend wurden wir bei unserer späten Anreise und sehr frühen Abreise behandelt.

Nur aus Selbstzweck, da wir gern bald wiederkommen würden, würden wir diesen besonderen Tip nicht gern zu häufig weiter geben. Aber das Appartement ist als Domizil, um Marseille und Umgebung zu erkunden, äußerst zu empfehlen!

Die Plätze in der Nähe bieten interessante Wochen- und Flohmärkte, wo man auch gut zum Kaffeetrinken, Croissants essen, zum Mittagessen oder abends auf ein Bier sitzen kann. Aber auch das arabische Viertel (Metro Station Noailles) hatte es uns mit all seinen köstlichen Kleinigkeiten sehr angetan.

Zentral und trotzdem die Ruhe pur

  • 5 of 5

Ein sehr besonderes und charmantes Appartement mit einer ebenso charmanten Vermieterin. Wir sind sehr herzlich empfangen worden und haben uns vom ersten Tag an wohlgefühlt. Die beiden Zimmer sind hell und freundlich. Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet. Und zu allem Überfluss gibt es eine wunderschöne und große Terrasse. Wir haben dort wunderbare Tage verbracht. Es war sehr entspannt und ruhig. Das Appartement ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt, um Marseille zu entdecken. Zentraler geht´s fast nicht.
