Merci beaucoup, c'était un we de rêve dans ce fabuleux endroit.
Wonderful flat, furnished with taste and situated with a view you can't beat.
I wouldn't hesitate to book again.
Très bel emplacement avec vue magnifique. Lumineux et décoré avec goût.
C'est génial de passer un week end sur le Vieux Port.
I don t know if Nicolas exict,I haven t met him, But his apartment is the essence of Marseille. You don t need to leave the apartment just seat at the balcony and watch the harbour. the ships, the people and Notre Dame de la Gard opposite you at different times, morning and sun set.We spend there 5 lovely days and nights.
Nicolas keep minimum contact, and send SMS when he sense you are a bit nervous but I can t comlain ,we arrived, the lovely neighbour waited for us and after that never heard from him again.
But the apartment worth it ,big rooms, big balcony-you can have a view from the bed,nice bathroom,a bit poor kitchen not in the best condition but who cares ? I didn t come here to cook!
As anyone will tell you there are three major factor about any apartment ,and Nicolas s apartment got them all -location,location and location.
This apartment and its view from the huge balcony located on the top floor of a Fernand Pouillon building is amazing! We loved the vivid sounds of the harbour! We liked the varied neighborhood and besides thanks to our late and nicely welcome from the neighbors! We can highly recommend Nicolas's Place!
Nicholas's apartment is stunning. The view is mesmerising and there's always something going on outside. You really are right in the thick of it.
We can't wait to come back!
Un très agréable séjour a Marseille dans ce superbe appartement ultra fonctionnel et surtout avec une terrasse et une vue des plus magnifique de Marseille.
Merci beaucoup a Nicolas qui nous a en plus bien aiguillé pour visiter les petits coins sympas et les belles plages et calanques marseillaises!
I've visited Marseille many times over the past few years for business - so I know the city fairly well. I was amazed to find this apartment available right on the Vieux Port and it certainly didn't disappoint. The apartment was clean, modern and well equipped. You couldn't get a better location in Marseille and the view was stunning. We spent a LOT of time just sitting on the fabulous balcony - it had the best vantage point around. There are plenty of restaurants, bars etc within a minutes walk and also grocery shops and patisseries etc if you want to eat in. I noticed previous guests had complained about the noise...I really don't think you can expect to stay right in the centre of where everything happens in a city and not have noise!
I can highly recommend this apartment - the only thing that would add to it would be air con - but you really can't have everything!
This was my first experience of Airbnb - I'm really impressed, 5-stars for this one.
Pros - 1) amazing, amazing location - can't beat it for access to the prime sights, shopping, rwstaurants, pretty much everything you need. 2) gives you the best view of any Marseilles accommodation, 3) very clean and looks exactly like the pictures.
Cons - 1) can be very noisy as there is a host of restaurants and bars just below and right next to a busy street for traffic in marseilles - bring sleeping plugs!, 2) can get very hot at night, 3) was hard to get in contact with Nicolas beforehand as got ni reply to an email I sent him five days before arriving but it was fairly easy to just call him on the day and let him know when I arrived.
A truly fantastic apartment and exactly what we wanted. Right on the Vieux Port, a huge balcony where you can eat, sit and listen to the sound of the quay and double bed facing the same direction. Our first experience of AirBnB and I couldn't have been more thrilled
very nice couple.
