Top floor with terrace and cachet

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Rue Sainte, Marseille, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur 13001, France

The Space

Our apartment is on the top floor of a typically "marseillais" 4 stage building without elevator. So you'll use your legs to reach the apartment and you'll be rewarded !
The apartment has some very good "cachet" (mansion mansard original volumes, south exposition with terrace, good isolation, traditionnal tiles floor, luminous due to its south expo).
Since 1 year we’re here, we try to upgrade it keeping in balance its original cachet with some new arrangements.

“Rue Sainte” is famous for its restaurants, and lively vincinity with all you need at a very short foot distance. Bars from the Cour d’Estienne d’Orves, Vieux Port with fishermen and all cruising tour options (Frioul, Les Calanques). We use to make all our food-shopping in rue Davso which is one street above where you can find bakeries, coffee maker, butcher, vegetables, supermarket.

In terms of transport, everything is between 2 and 5 minutes walking.
Metro (Vieux Port), Bike renting such as “velib”, Bus Lines, Ferry Boats for Frioul or Les Calanques.
If you like to walk we are 15min from Notre Dame de La Garde, 20min from Train Station (but 5min if you take the metro) 10min from Noailles market....

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The price was a bit high for the value as the house is a bit old but sufficient (I booked it very last minute and was grateful that it was available). On nice days, the terrace is fabulous to relax and feel the oceanic breeze. However the 5-6 flights of stairs were a challenge, especially with my older parents and their many suitcases...
    I never met David but he was nice and responsive on the phone (he was away). The location of the place is prime (in the very centre of town) and I'd highly recommend for friends/young couple looking for a convenient, friendly place in Marseille.

  • David was very quick with his replies and answered all our inquiries.
    The apartment was really lovely. Boheme and beautiful and the terrace is lovely. As for the location, we could not have asked for a better place.
    We definitely recommend!
    Thanks David!

  • Everything was made at last minute but worked perfectly:) David replied really fast and it we arranged everything in a few hours. The flat itself is really nice and is situated at the best place of Marseille. You can't get anything better then this. We really loved it staying at his flat. Thanks.

  • Our stay in David's flat was very nice! The apartment is very true to the pictures on the site and is in a very central location to forms of transportation (metro, public bike system, boat, etc). He was very flexible with our late arrival and late departure, which was very helpful to us. The terrace is very nice although we didn't stay long enough to truly enjoy it. I highly recommend David's apartment :)

  • The apartment was very charming and in a great location. We loved the little outside terrace and had dinner there one night. We would definitely come back for a return visit! Lots to see and do in Marseille, and we barely scratched the surface!

    June 2012
  • David's appartment is really lovely and very well-located (2 min from the "Vieux Port", supermarket and bakery in the same street). We really appreciated the terrace, and the building is really calm (especially during the week end, because you have only lawfirms as neighbours!). The kitchen is fully equiped.

    David gave us every information we needed to enjoy our stay and he was very flexible about check-in/check-out (we changed our train on the very same day, but we found a solution without any problem).

    I recommend David as host and his flat is a really nice place to stay for a few days in Marseille!

  • David was a great host. I requested to stay in his apartment approximately 2 days before I was due to arrive in Marseilles. David got in contact with me very quickly, and we were able to arrange everything, even though he was on holiday on the day we were arriving!

    The apartment is lovely. In total, 4 of us stayed and the apartment felt spacious, and was a very pleasant atmosphere. The location is excellent - it is very central, and easy to find. When we arrived, we found that the apartment was well prepared for us, and very clean. It was a perfect place to stay, and we all felt that the price was very fair.

  • We spent 4 great days in David's very comfortable flat. Fantastic location, which made visiting Marseille with 3 young kids very easy. Right on Vieux Port, we walked to Mucem, Le Panier, 2 minute walk to take boat to Frioul, 5 minute walk to take mini train to go up to Notredame de la Garde. Great city, great flat!

  • David & Florian's place in Vieux Port is a terrific terrace on Marseille. the place is in a perfect location for acceding to all the cultural and sightseeing attractions of the city centre. the house is ideal if you are traveling in large groups. big up for all the breakfast goodies and if you are hungry in the morning, the closest Boulangerie & Patisserie is at the corner. definitely recommended for spending your days in the radiant Marseille

Floriane & David, nous sommes installés à Marseille depuis 2 ans de retour du Brésil. On voulait y trouver un bon mélange de cultures, de paysages et d'options pour être heureux, on est pas déçu. Souvent en bateau, en kayak, à la nage, avec des copains, des barbecues et autres. On sera ravis de partager nos bonnes adresses et notre façon d'aimer Marseille avec les gens de passage.
