Our spacious, cozy flat (90 m2), situated in a quiet neighborhood only a few steps from the beach “Les Catalans” and the "Vieux Port", can easily accommodate 4 people and a baby.
Our lovely apartment (90 m2) has a bright and spacious living room with a small balcony, 3 bedrooms (two of which are furnished with queen size sleeping accommodations, and one is furnished with a baby bed), a fully equipped kitchen (gas stove, electric oven, microwave, dish washer, fridge and freezer) with a small sunny terrace equipped with a table and chairs and view on a cute back yard, a bathroom (shower, laundry) and a separate toilet. We have unlimited WiFi, but no TV.
The apartment is on the third floor, i.e. 2nd floor according to French definition, without elevator.
The immediate neighborhood is quiet, as the apartment is located in a small side street close to the Avenue de la Corse. The neighbors are quiet and friendly.
We don’t have pets, but a few plants that need to be watered occasionally. Pets are accepted in our building as long as they don’t disturb the neighbors.
Smoking is ok on the balconies, of course, but we prefer no smoking in the apartment.
We, Philippe and Irene, are a French-German couple in our mid-30’s, originally not from Marseille, but we have been living in the beautiful area of Marseille and Aix en Provence since 2005 with a two-year living and working experience between New York City and Marseille. We are now getting settled in Marseille, Phil as a mid-school teacher (History/Geography) and Irene as a researcher in Earth Sciences. We have a lot of travel experience, are uncomplicated and respectful towards other people’s property and privacy. We have sublet quite often our former apartment in New York.
