Interaction with Guests
We love to invite to have a drink and to schau Marseille from our balcony with a very nice vue auf le Vieux Port!
small boutiques, bars, very typical old residential area.
Quite a lot of busses at 5 min walk from the place.
A direct bus connection from Notre Dame de la Garde (5 min walk from our place) to the Mucem (new museum).
Not smoking place!
Calm that's all!
The appartment had a perfect location, right between the vieux port and the Notre Dame de la Garde, and Claire was a very nice host. We can surely recommend it!
Claire was exceptionally nice, understanding, gave us our privacy, and was even kind enough to call us a taxi when we left since we did not have working phones.
As for the apartment, it was clean, nicely furnished, great kitchen and despite the place not having air conditioning it still felt cool enough during the summer because of the amount of windows (with sea air) and fans. You do have to keep the window shutters locked at night due to the wind.
The only kind warning I would give is that this apartment is that it is on the second floor (i.e. one floor above ground floor) with slightly steep steps. It is also on a street with a pretty steep hill. Marseilles is a very hilly city, so if you're traveling with lots of heavy luggage or have a bad knee, that's a good thing to keep in mind. The climb can definitely be worth it, the apartment has a gorgeous view of the sea!
Claire and Michel were gracious hosts that ensured we were comfortable and had many tips on things to do in the area. Their place was centrally located which enabled us to walk to most destinations!
Great stay at Claires appartment! Super location with safe (payed) parking in neighbourhood... Even in hot weather we were able to keep the place quite cool thanks to airco. Will come back if visiting Marseille again!
Claire' apartment has a stunning view of the ocean and the port. The location is really close to the beautiful Cathedral on the top of the hill. We arrived late, but her husband waited us at home to give us the key. They are nice persons! After years construction Marseille becomes a marvelous tourism destination! We have a good time in Marseille and this apartment provide everything we need.
Appartement idéalement situé dans un quartier calme a 2 pas du vieux port. Spacieux et propre. Merci à Claire pour les guides et autres conseils sur les adresses du quartier ! Un coup de coeur pour la vue mer !
Very nice apartment and very nice host in a great city !
hope to come back soon
