Interaction with Guests
I'm trying to welcome guests personnally when they arrive out of office hours & like to give them all directions for a pleasant stay. When not available, we have arrangements with nearby shops, or neighbours.
At the same time, I understand some guests like their privacy & peace & quiet, so I'm trying to adapt to people's wishes!
I love taking my coffee on one of the numerous sunny terraces & squares, strolling around the famous Marché de la Plaine, or walking to the old port.
Many markets around: clothes, organic food, flowers...
Enjoy the cafés & restaurants around (French, with "les pieds dans le plat", Indian, Syrian, Japanese...), or go to a concert in one of the many concert venues.
A cinema & a great museum at a walking distance.
Discover the "Cours Julien", and its lively colorful restaurants & bars (5 minutes from the flat) , young clothes designers, and concert venues. Many markets around, for food, clothes...

Merci beaucoup à Myriam et Xavier pour leur accueil très gentil. L'appartement est vraiment super et la vue magnifique, nous avons passé un excellent week end ! Et reviendrons dans cet appartement sans hésiter!
Le loft correspond parfaitement à la description, agréable et totalement fonctionnel... Evidemment la vue est superbe.
Tout était fourni : serviette, draps, produits vaisselle, sel poivre & co donc nous avons pu voyager léger
Myriam nous a accueilli personnellement ce qui a rendu la découverte des lieux encore plus agréable.
Super appart avec magnifique vue sur la ville. Assez bien situé pour tout faire a pied.
Magnifique ! Romantique à souhait !Bien placé ! Une terrasse superbe au calme de la ville , et des couchers de soleils magnifiques sur Marseille !
Superbe appartement avec une vue effectivement à couper le souffle. Très fonctionnel par ailleurs.
Quartier très animé mais l'appartement reste extrêmement silencieux.
Séjour parfait. L'appartement est fidèle au photos et descriptif. Très beau et calme. L'accueil super.
The appartment was the perfect basis for our two week stay at Marseille. We were warmly received by the hosts and made familar with the things necessary to spend a carfree time. Perfectly located in a nice neighbourhood with a beatiful view on the sea, we could not have asked for a better place. The shops you need were nearby, and the apartment itself offered erverything to cater for yourself. If we did not feel like eating at home, there were very good places to eat within walking distance. All in all, we would definetely choose this apartment again, when calling at Marseille next time.
We've lived in Marseille for the last 10 years, and like sharing some tips with our guests. We lived abroad for some years (UK, Singapore), and like to meet people from other places.
