Description en Français en bas de page !!
This recently renovated apartment in the 7th district of Marseille is close to all the shops and restaurants right in between the the Vieux-port and the beach of the Catalans. Bus and railway station nearby. You will be close to the old port (3 minutes) where you can find a fish market, many restaurants, nightclubs and bars and from where you can take a boat to visit famous islands (Frioul, etc).
Kitchen with refrigerator, ceramic hob and oven, bathroom with separate toilet and shower, convertible sofa. The apartment can accommodate 2 adults. Towels are included (not beach towels). No animals allowed and smoking is allowed only in the balcony.
The apartment is 3 minutes walk away from the beach of the Catalans and the the Pharo Castel. The port is just 10 minutes away where you can catch the ship over to the Frioul Islands ! You may be able to park your car for free in front of the apartment, but mostly places are occupied. There is, though, a parking not to far away. The street is calm, you might hear cars pass or the cleaning services on the street in the morning, but it is not a disturbing noise.
Television with HD channels and internet are available although I believe you will not need this, because there is so much to do in Marseille and surrounding! (the interne connection is a 1MB speed, ou will be able to check emails, book a ticket or even download up o 100Kb/s).

The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Marseille is one of the cities that could not be missed during a travel in Provence or on the South French coast 'COTES D'AZUR'.
It is a city with a lot of things to discover and a number of attractions to see.
The flat is located very close to the beach LES CATALANS and to the port VIEUX-PORT. The basilica NOTRE DAMES DE LA GARDE is also at 5 min walk. It is very well connected with buses and big supermarket ans FISH market are very close.

"Great Location and awesome host"
Spent a great time in Marseille! The apartment is really close to the beach and you can walk to the city center in no time. It is a good value for what we received, a great kitchen to cook and public … More

This is a nice choice for the price. You have a handy location with a nice stroll into town or a very short walk to the beach
It was clean but possibly could do with a nicer bed/settee
I enjoyed watching the traffic and crazy drivers from the balcony :)
Marseille itself is a lovely place where we felt completely safe, I'm not saying there isn't pickpockets etc but we didn't see anything bad

"Great Trip to Marseille!"
Fantastic liaison with the host Bilel and his family. I stayed in Marseille for just under a month this March and cannot stress how accommodating and kind they all were. It was extremely easy to organise collecting/leaving keys and Bilel himself was always on the end of the phone for any queries or questions. The apartment itself was perfect for me, I was very busy during the days with work but the evenings in the flat were fantastic and the closeness of a peaceful beach was idyllic! I would definitely look to do business with Bilel in the future should I ever have the opportunity to return to Marseille.
