The apartment is part of a renovated embassy on a tree lined boulevard, that does get traffic at times but we face the top of the trees with alot of birdsong, it is not a shopping street but there can be streetlife associated with the centre of a city, however it is safe and the building is well lit and secure
Lots of very convenient transport, the main station (St Charles) is 10 minutes walk, the metro, tram and buses (Canebiere) 5 minutes, the old port (Vieux Port) and its boat services 10 minutes and Cour Julien and its nightlife and restaurants 10 minutes walk.

Amazing place! Exactly as pictured: stylish, charming and with a lovely light airy feel. It was impeccably clean, and felt like a real home from home. Communication with Mark was quick and easy. Mounira was prompt and very helpful (and spoke very good English to compensate for my poor French). Being so central, it is noisy (I was glad I'd taken earplugs, and the balcony is more for watching the whirl of a modern city than relaxation) but the building itself feels very secure. It's an easy stroll to the station, Old Port and the markets.
Die Kommunikation mit Mark verlief völlig einwandfrei. Vor Ort wurde das Apartment von Mounira übergeben. Auch der Kontakt zu ihr war problemlos. Die Unterkunft liegt in zentraler Innenstadtlage und Marseille kann gut zu Fuß erkundet werden. Eine Station für Mietfahrräder befindet sich direkt vor dem Haus, die Anbindung an den öffentlichen Nahverkehr ist sehr gut. Das Apartment ist interessant aufgeteilt und mit allem für einen mehrtägigen Aufenthalt ausgestattet. Ich habe mich sehr wohl gefühlt.
Siamo stati accolti da Mounira e l'accoglienza è stata semplice ed efficiente. L'appartamento è molto bene organizzato e curato. Nell'angolo cucina c'è tutto quello che puoi desiderare. La posizione dell'appartamento è ottima, a 5min dal porto vecchio, ben servita da metro e bus. Lo consiglieremo agli amici.
Logement parfait pour visiter Marseille, les Calanques et l'arrière-pays, sans besoin de voiture, grâce à la localisation centrale. L'intérieur de l'appartement est propre et pratique, confortable et fonctionnel. Nous avons passé une super semaine!
What a great time!
I stayed 12 days at this lovely apartment. The communication with Mark before and during this time was helpfully, competent and fast.
The welcome of Mounira was punctually and she showed me all the necessary things.
If you can do it, start at the beautiful staircase at the main station and you will see the beautiful city of Marseille and reach the apartment in 5 minutes on foot.
The lovely flat is like the picture it shown, and right in the heart of Marseille.
You will not miss anything in this beautiful light-filled apartment, everything is very well equipped.
I felt home! Thank you so much.
Appartement très bien situé. L'accueil de Mounira était parfait. Deco surprenante mais plutôt agréable. Calme et pratique. Excellent séjour.
Mark's apartment is beautiful. He really supplies everything you need - the big things like a bed and couch of course, but also the little things like laundry detergent. His assistant Mounira made sure that I felt comfortable calling her if I needed anything. The location is really convenient. It's right in between the train station and Vieux Port, so you can travel easily and also get to all the restaurants and shops. I definitely recommend staying here!
