A family home: convenient, comfy, and designed for the whole family
Our flat is 5 minutes walk from a young and lively neighboorhood with numerous small restaurants, bars, and local creators boutiques (quartier Notre-dame du Mont ou Castellane). A good bakery and some groceries stand downstairs.
There is an organic market on wednesday mornings 5 minutes from home (by feet), and a big market close too that takes place almost everyday (La plaine or Castellane).
More exotic neighboorhood Noailles is 10 minutes away (asian, indian and african products - Marseille being an antique port, it's a city still rich with this kind of goods).
By tram, you can go to MuCEM and its surprising architecture (it'sthe new museum that was built since Marseille had been a cultural capital in 2013). Closest beach is accessible via a direct bus line 3 minutes from home. Otherwise, railway station is not far either, which can be a very nice way of visiting l'Estaque and all côte-bleue's calanques, finding little spots to swim or eat fried calamars under a pergola.
Apart from the interest of the city itself, staying in Marseille is a a way of visiting Cassis and Aix-en-provence, and the numerous interesting places of Provence (Arles, Nîmes, Camargues, Avignon, Luberon...).
