Description

The space

"Le panier" is the historical center of the city; during the commercial port gold age this was the living place of stevedores and sailors families. This is located above the "quai du port" were the first greek vessels berthed to build the city. The place is a concentrate of african colonies style and fragrances mixed with the typical french life. You will wake up with the sound of bells and will smell the "savon de Marseilles" parfume all around the streets. This is a quiet place without trafic (most of the quarter is for pedestrian only) , as a village in the middle of the city.

Guest access

I usually live in this flat but I always give full access to all rooms and parts of the habitation. Airbnb is based on confidence!!

Interaction with guests

After few year in Paris, I have the pleasure to be back in my home town;
I will be happy to share stories from my grand parents (living in the quarter during the war) or any historical info about Marseille which remains my heart place! I can also recommend you few adresses for dinner or "things to see/to do";

The neighbourhood

How could I fill this section... Maybe we could say "Le Panier" is the equivalent of Montmartre for Paris! Nothing more authentic, quiet, and better located in the city!

The apartment is well situated for access to the train station and the old port. It is very spacious - especially for two people - with a nice selection of furniture. Romain is very welcoming and flexible with arrival/departure times...even when we were slightly later getting up to leave he was friendly enough to make us a coffee and chat with us for nearly 30 mins whilst we got ready to depart! I would definitely stay there again if i had the chance, its only a shame that i was only there for less than 24 hours!

The apartment is spacy and clean. Although the bed sheet has some cigaratte ash on it but we changed the clean one by ourselves.

My Boss enjoyed the stay in your apartment and hte perfect location. He was surprised though, that there was no room for his belongings, wether in the closet nor in the bathroom. He was spending two weeks there and he was expecting some space left open for clothes etc. Other than that it was a joyful experience.
