“Airy clean perfection”
Reviewed 31 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The appartement is much larger than expected, with high ceilings and windows, and the impression of space is enhanced by the tasteful and uncluttered decor. The mezzanine is very high up, too high for me who has very very bad vertigo (I could not go on the balcony either), but fine for others.
The place was spotless, the floor tiled so perfect for allergy sufferers, the shower is superb with good pressure even on a fourth floor. The owner is not kidding when he says the linen is good. The bed sheets were properly ironed cotton ones and the bath towels thick and plentiful.
There is all the kitchen mod cons you might need, a dishwasher and a washing machine.
We were there when it was very warm. Yet we did not use the air con as the series of windows and the style of the building with inner courtyards made for good airflow.
The main room gives straight onto the Place des Huiles, a busy venue with many restaurants and some music events. We did not find the noise a problem, as we were high up, more of a pleasant hum of summer city life and in any case, any music ceased well before midnight.
The neighbours were friendly and not noisy at all.
The wifi, a must with teenagers, worked like a dream.
The situation is ideal: buses and the metro are steps away, a small but well stocked supermarket is two doors away, there is the port to the right, decent restaurants across the road, shopping heaven a couple of streets behind with a Sephora and a Nyx store, etc...it would be an ideal base for a shopping holiday.
The area felt very safe, even late at night, the entrance onto the street being with a code and automatic lighting and the street busy.
I am always worried when renting instead of going to a hotel, but I can only recommend this: the handover was easy, receiving the keys too, so book with confidence.

A short break in Marseille and we were delighted with the appartment. Great location and full of character. Very airy property with great views and very hospitable host. Highly recommended. Just seconds from both the port but also all the top restaurants. Staying here will also improve your fitness...It's on the fourth floor ! Thank you Marc :)

“Spacious apartment in a wonderful location!”
Reviewed 7 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We loved the place - super spacious, clean, well laid out and in a great location with lovely views. Check in was simple, as was our departure. The only downside was the 106 stairs from street level to the apartment, although that helped burn off all those three course meals.
