My bright and airy double room in a 3 bedroom house with large garden in Martigues, the Provençal Venice, is available as I am now a permanent resident in the UK!
The house is located in a quiet neighbourhood and has a balcony overlooking the coast on the South side. It is close to all amenities with a supermarket and gas station within 10 minutes walk, cinema and bowling within 5 minute drive. The town centre is also within walking distance. Marseille is only 35km (21 miles) away ans is reachable within 30min. Martigues is surrounded by Carry-le-Rouet, Sausset-les-Pins, Ensuès-la-Redonne and Niolon, which are amazing spots for relaxing days out on secluded beaches far away from the crowds. Martigues has its own beach, La Couronne, which is only a short drive away but can also be reached using public transports. The town council organises a cultures' festival over 2 weeks in July and night street markets showcasing local "savoir-faire" every Wednesday night in July and August.
The room features a comfortable double bed, a chest of drawers, a bed-side table and built-in storage. The room has a view on the back garden. There are no vis-à-vis and the luxuriant garden ensures privacy when having breakfast, lunch or dinner on the terrace. The house also features a large kitchen, ideal for those of you who enjoy cooking! We have a BBQ in the garden which is perfect for late summer dinners - the hosts will be happy to help you set it up! We have WIFI in the house and the garden and the log-in and password will be given to you upon arrival.
We also have a single room available most of the time should one other person need to be accommodated.
HOW IT WORKS: Breakfast is included in the rate. Unlike most hosts, we do not work on a self-service basis and you will find breakfast ready for you every morning when you wake up. Do let me know whether you have any preferences or restrictions upon booking and we will make sure to match your preferences. We also pride ourselves in providing a hotel-like service. Should you need any food for lunch and dinner, there is a large supermarket 10 min walk away from the house and we will make room for your shopping in our fridge.
For further information and availabity, please do not hesitate to contact me. Please note the whole house can be rented when the hosts are away on holiday.
All we ask is for guests to be considerate, responsible, clean and quiet. Please treat our home like you would like guest to treat your own place.
Smoking will only be allowed in the garden and on the balcony and will not be permitted anywhere within the house. Please do not throw your cigarette butts in the garden or next door, south of France is very dry and hot over the summer and fires expand really quickly!
All cutlery and dishes are available for your use.
Picking up from the airport can be arranged upon request.
We stayed at Myriams parents’ house for 6 nights during the last week of August 2014.
They are very caring and lovely people and they made us feel very welcome. As excellent hosts they provided us with tourist information and even more. Every morning they provided us with a nice French petit déjeuner, by night when we came back with the car, they let the carport gate open. We hardly speak French and they hardly speak English but that was no issue. Even Myriam offered to help by phone if needed. The room and the environment are identical to the pictures. We had a marvellous time at Martigues and it was a perfect starting point for trips to Marseille, Camargue or just a lazy day at the beach, etc. We can recommend this accommodation for short and long stay.

Although Myriam was not there, her parents welcomed us friendly. Nice hosts and comfy bed. The only thing we could complain about was the cleanliness, especially the toilet. When you charge a cleaning fee of 20€, one should expect a clean place. But the breakfast in the garden was nice and it was all in all absolutely okay for a stop-over.
Les parents de Myriam nous ont réservé un accueil exceptionnel. Leur maison est très agréable et bien placée pour profiter (même en bus) des plages alentours.
My best friend and I decided to take a trip to Biarritz. A stop halfway was necessary so we stayed at Myriam house. It was definately a surprise...we found a family! The room and the house is so nice and Myriam's parents are so kind, available and lovely. Unfortunately we stay there only for one night but I hope to come back soon and stay longer!
Los padres de Myriam fueron muy amables y acogedores y nos ayudaron en todo incluso transportandonos a nuestro sitio de partida.
The house is in a great location only ten minute walk to the town centre. The hosts who were Myriam's parents made us feel extremely welcome and went out of their way to ensure we got everything we needed. The breakfast was varied and generous, Myriam's mum really made us feel at home. The facilities within the house were good.
Notre temps etait cagreable.. La famille est tres gentille; si on a des questions elle est toujours pret à aider.
On a recu un bon petit dejeuner tous les matins.
La chambre n'est oas grande, mais ca suffit pour dprmir.
Unsere Gastgeber waren sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Allerdings sollte man Französich sprechen.; da die Gastgeber kein Einglisch können; was für uns toll war, Das Frühstück war für frz Verhältnisse sehr reichlich und gut. Auf Wünsche wird eingegegangen.
Das Zimmer ist mit dem Photo im Internet identisch. Aber es reicht völllig zum Übernachten. Wir waren tagsüber immer unterwegs.
Wenn man sich tagsüber länger vor Ort aufhalten will, sollte man eine Ferienwohnung buchen.
Preis Leistung war fair und in Ordnung
