THIS is the place to stay. Absolutely the best.
This home should be your next vacation spot! I love researching properties on HomeAway and have done all the work for you. This has been our favorite. My husband and I and our three teenage boys stayed here for a week this August. We woke to stunning views and walked five minutes to buy warm chocolate croissant. We walked two minutes to the tiny harbor and jumped into the sea several times a day,, even in the evening. We ate at fabulous local restaurants but mostly ate simple food on the patio and drank a glass of wine while looking out at the spectacular view. Each bedroom was comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and we loved shopping at the local market. The house was immaculately clean. The owners were responsive and helpful. We walked into Marseilles (20 mins) or took the bus. We jogged along the coastal road. We took a day trip by boat to the calanques. On the last day, we fantasized about returning to this house every summer. What a magical spot. We feel so lucky to have experienced the local, relaxed feeling of this small neighborhood. A perfect rental for a family with older children or two couples or a group of friends. We will dream of these days during our cold winter in Boston.
Thank you for your feed back
Amazing views of Chateau d'if!
Hosts are very helpful and gracious.
Great for families.
A spacious house in a nice neighborhood with panoramic view of the sea. Enjoyable patio dinning area and a kitchen with everything needed for cooking and dinning. Nice and friendly owner.
Fabulous villa overlooking the Mediterranean!
Probably the best sea view in Marseille from a wonderful villa on the coast in the old fishing village of Malmousque. The villa was very comfortable and well equipped, and the two terraces perfect for relaxing and taking in the views across the bay. Local amenities were excellent with a small supermarket, Boulanger and several bars and restaurants nearby. The local 83 bus was perfect for trips into the city and to Plage du Prado just along the coast. For a vacation in Marseille this really is the perfect place to stay - thank you Mathilde!
A perfect trip to Marseille!
We have just returned from one of the most enjoyable and pleasant weeks of holiday our family has experienced. This gorgeous 3 BR Villa is absolutely stunning in it's presentation. The upper and lower balconies look out onto the Mediterranean and the lsle of If with chateau d'if (Count of Monte Cristo) prominently featured. Madame Mathilde greeted us on our arrival and was a perfect hostess. She even hiked a KM to help us with our bags as we arrived the afternoon of the Tour de France (and vehicle access to the property was limited that day).
We considered many other areas of France before deciding on Marseille, and we are glad we did. The city is vibrant and authentic and it's people were so polite as we attempted to communicate with our limited French.
This villa is located in the quiet fishing village of Malmousque, a 10 minute bus ride from city center via the 83 bus which costs 2 Euros and runs about every 10 minutes. We spent the week exploring the area's of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region of southern France. We had a day trip destination for each day (If interested, I strongly recommend considering the team at Tours by Locals - we spent a week with Fabrice "Brice" and enjoyed everything immensely).
In addition to several fantastic restaurants, there is a small market and a wonderful bakery that we visited everyday. The villa has a full kitchen, 2 BR upstairs, and a 3rd on the main level. There are 2 separate "water closets" (toilets) in addition to 2 showers and a bathtub. The main balcony has an outdoor grill and covered table (and several dozen plants to provide a traditional ambiance). There is also a beach about a 15 minute walk, or you can just stroll down to the water from the villa for a swim.
All in all, I wish I could rate this higher. We have enjoyed many VRBO rental properties, but this has set a new standard for us, we are already looking forward to our return!
Thank you Mathilde and Pierre!
Charming home with spectacular views!
We spent seven June nights in this nice house that is filled with character. It is located in an area that was established many hundreds of years ago, with beautiful narrow alleys and streets with corresponding challenges in driving and parking. The views from the two levels of large balconies decorated with a multitude of lovely plants was spectacular! Unobstructed views of pleasure and commercial boats, fun lining locals swimming, and islands like the famous Chateau d'If of Count of Monte Christo fame. The bedrooms were good sized and the bathrooms small to medium (nice large tub in master, 2 showers). Kitchen was huge and my sweetie loved the vast assortment of cookware and spices. No microwave but we easily adjusted. Parking was hard to find but we always managed to find a spot. All spaces are free in the area. We took day trips to Monaco, Nice, Cassis/Les Calanques twice, Arles/Pont du Gard, and walked over to Vieux Port (old port) and took the tourist train to Norte Dame. We tried five close local small restaurants and a meat market on the Main Street about 100 meters away. Each one had very delicious food. We made daily visits to the local supermarket and the patisserie along the same strip. 😊� We had a great time with everything and Mathilde was the perfect host!
Visit the port of Malmousque who kept a typical and authentic side. You will come across colorful characters! Push your visit to downtown Marseille.
Feel free to test the baptism of scuba diving or rent a small boat for a boat trip in order to try to cross the dolphins!
