About this listing
Our flat is located in the heart of Marseille only a few steps away from the railway station Saint Charles. You will easily walk everywhere: 2 minutes to a big shopping center, 5 minutes to the old Harbour and 2 mn to the famous avenue de la Canebière... The flat is located in a cosmopolitan and authentic district that reflects the spirit and the culture of our city... The district is lively in the day (thanks to its people, not to the car trafic that is limited) and extremely quiet at night!
This sunny flat has been entirely renovated this January 2013; it can sleep up to 6 guests as follows:
- a large living room with an open kitchen, fully equipped, and a convertible couch that can sleep 2. You also get a flat screen TV, a videotape reader, a CD Player, free WIFI, radio...
- 2 very quiet bedrooms, each with a bed for 2. The brand new sheets and covers are furnished.
- a bathroom with the towels furnished
- toilets are separate.
The flat is on the third flood. There is no lift but the owner will carry up jour luggage when He welcomes you!
It will be our pleasure to host you in our beautiful and unique City. We will tell you everything about Marseille so that tour stay becomes exceptional.
Merci de prévoir votre arrivée entre 14h et 20h
Le départ vers midi si un autre locataire doit arriver.
Pascal and his wife were extremely helpful and welcoming throughout our stay in Marseille. The apartment was spotless, well decorated, and homey. A detailed visitor guide to the city was awaiting our arrival and extremely helpful. We used the recommendations Pascal and his wife gave us and had a lovely time exploring the area. Pascal and his wife met us as soon as we arrived and could not have been more welcoming.
We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone staying in Marseille! The apartment was one of the highlights of our stay!
Fantastic apartment in perfect location. Near to St Charles station and the port, shops, restaurants (all walking distance). The apartment itself is a delight, everything you need and more! Marielle and her daughter gave my friend and I a lovely, warm welcome and spent time explaining the best places to visit. Pascal provided a log book which contained all the info you could possibly want. Nothing to fault at all and would love to return :-)
Hôte très accueillant, chaleureux et arrangeant.
L' appartement est parfaitement situé pour profiter de Marseille. Nous reviendrons avec plaisir chez Pascal lors de notre prochain séjour à Marseille. Merci :-)
Pascal nos encontrou na estação de trem conforme nossa solicitação. Foi muito atencioso e prestativo. Tirou todas as nossas dúvidas com relação à posição geográfica do local , onde e o que comprar. Mostrou de forma organizada os principais pontos turísticos e estava disponível para qualquer dúvida ou incidente durante toda nossa estadia. Foi um ótimo anfitrião. O apartamento todo equipado e com os utensílios completos para uma boa estadia. Grande e confortável. A proximidade do apartamento da estação de trem, metrô, ônibus e o Porto Velho é excelente.
Accueil chaleureux dans un appartement similaire en tout point aux photos, très agréable, bien décoré, propre et fonctionnel. A quelques minutes de la gare à pieds mais également proche du vieux port. Nombreux petits commerces à proximité et quartier vivant, sans bruit de voiture. Pascal est un hôte souriant et attentif.
Pascal met us from the station at 11.30pm at the train station and took us to the apartment - helping us up the stairs with our cases! He talked us through his log book of everything to know about Marseilles which was very helpful. His English was brilliant even at this late time. He had some breakfast things in for us too which was very thoughtful as we arrived too late to buy anything.
He checked up on up half way through our stay to make sure everything was alright and said just to call him if we had any problems.
The apartment itself was really nice - lots of interesting things collected from Pascals travels are on display. Other reviews have mentioned the lack of air con but there are fans in the flat and we found they did the job just fine. Pascal also has a great music collection in there - we listened to some of his CDs whilst cooking in the apartment one night.
The neighbourhood was not touristy but was really close to the station. It's not far to walk to the lovely district of Le Panier and the other sights like the Vieux Port etc.
Pascal is an excellent host. He gave me clear instructions about how to get to his flat and the description of his flat is accurate.
Location of his flat is less than 5 minutes from train station and 5 minutes to old port. It's of very good size and maintained to a very high (website hidden) and internetare provided.
Despite the lack of air condition, there's good ventilation with windows opened.
Staying there is just like home away from home.
