The space

Great location! Seriously in the middle of an awesome spot in Marseille.

My friend and I had a wonderful stay in Maxime's place. It was easy to locate, the communication was easy and unstressful and the apartment is adorable, just as pictured. Oh and the air conditioning! It was so lovely to have during those 30+ degree days. I would recommend this place and stay there again.

This flat had been recommended by a friend but even so I was pleasantly surprised. The Creative Quarter is covered with artwork and interesting shops so makes a great location to stay. Also only 15 minutes to walk from The docks and the station. The flat was everything you could want, with decently stocked kitchen (with most cooking basics) and a comfy bed and bathroom. I had a friend stay one night and the sofa bed was also more comfortable than most. Maxine and her daughter was very friendly making check in and out very easy. This was my first stay in an AirBnB and I must say I was very impressed.

Maxime was a wonderful host! She always answered our messages promptly, and we only had positive experiences with her. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a tour of the studio and recommendations on local sights and restaurants. When we asked (on very short notice) to remain another day, she kindly extended our stay and was flexible with our check out as well. The studio itself was very bright and as pictured. The area is quiet at night and we never had trouble falling asleep on the comfy bed. In addition, the studio is in a great location near the metro and plenty of cafés. We walked almost everywhere and absolutely loved our time at Maxime's in Marseille.

Our stay at Maxime's place was great. Everything was exactly as advertised and the contact with (super friendly and nice) Maxime was excellent! Took a while for us to realise you can use an airco as a heater but then it was just right (: There's no direct sunlight, but if you're in Marseille to be outside like us, it doesn't matter at all. Still a cozy studio.

Maxime is a wonderful hostess, very flexible. The flat was clean and silent, even if it is situated in the district with a lot of cafes and restaurants. The subway and tram stations there are also not far away from the flat. We will definitely book this apartment again and recommend it.

My daughters have now left Marseille and I remain here with lots of great memories, tons of books and toys… as well as a couple of studios!

It wasn’t easy but I finally managed to get my 3 muscles to work and with great help from friends and family, we renovated the studios so that they could welcome you like your own home.

The studios are located at the heart of Marseille, in a very cosmopolitan neighbourhood which is very well connected to other parts of town.

The area, which is without a doubt my favourite one in Marseille, is famous for its coffee shops and restaurants, with sunny terraces almost all year long. It offers a perfect mix of animation and tranquillity.

You can choose to stay at the 1st, 2nd or 3rd floor, overlooking the rooftops or hidden behind them:
Le 1 du {8} : https://www.airbnb.fr/rooms/5079627
Le 2 du {8} : https://www.airbnb.fr/rooms/5079670
Le 3 du {8} : https://www.airbnb.fr/rooms/5079686

I don’t speak English perfectly, but both my daughters could answer all your questions in English, German and Spanish. And I would be more than happy to practice with you… if you speak slowly :)


Mes enfants ont quitté Marseille pour voler vers des contrées plus ou moins lointaines.

Il me reste des souvenirs plein la tête et les oreilles, des photos, des livres, des jouets, mais aussi des studios.

J'ai pris mon courage à deux mains, sorti mes 3 muscles et sollicité mes amis et leurs enfants. J'ai cassé, peint, nettoyé les murs et les sols.

J'ai repeint de mes petites mains malhabiles les meubles des enfants (éco durable pour faire plaisir à petite chérie, à la planète et à mon portefeuille). Des achats de meubles et accessoires neufs (literie de qualité) pour assurer votre confort… les lieux sont prêts à vous recevoir.

C'est ici, au 1er, 2ème ou au 3ème étage, sous ou sur les toits :
Le 1 du {8} : https://www.airbnb.fr/rooms/5079627
Le 2 du {8} : https://www.airbnb.fr/rooms/5079670
Le 3 du {8} : https://www.airbnb.fr/rooms/5079686

Les studios sont situés dans mon quartier préféré, Notre Dame du Mont, le Cours Julien, la Plaine... Vivant, animé, cosmopolite...

Je ne suis pas très douée en langues étrangères mais, mes enfants peuvent répondre à toutes vos questions en anglais, allemand et espagnol.
Moi, je me ferai un plaisir de travailler mon anglais... If you speak slowly :)
