Sylvian & Cyril were very friendly and helpful. They had lots of documents for the area and suggestions on the sights as well as local restaurants. The apartment was conveniently located near public transportation, the old port, Le Panier, and MuCEM. It was a wonderful stay!

We had a fantastic time staying in Sylvain and Cyril's apartment. It was exactly as described and both Sylvain and Cyril were very welcoming, helping us with tips on places to eat and sights to see. Marseille is a beautiful city to visit and we would highly recommend Sylvain and Cyril's apartment as a place to stay.

The place is really well located with a great view on the port and Sylvain is a super good host! The place is not super cleaned (there were a bit of dust everywhere, the cutlery were not well cleaned) and it missed little things like new soap for the hands (it was small and used) at the bathroom and napkins in the kitchen.

Perfect position at the end of the Old Port - quieter than the main area but near all the high lights of Marseille. Perfect for a couple - we had a great break here and hope to return

Sylvain's place is nice and functional. The neighbourhood is residential and quiet, but you still get the most amazing view of the Vieux Port, and Notre Dame de la Gard. Note that there are flights of stairs to climb (4 floors), no elevator, but the view is worth it. Sylvain was also very responsive and helpful by providing useful guides and maps. I strongly recommend Sylvain as a host and this place!
