Journey back in history and let the authentic beauty of the seaside city of Marseilles captivate your heart. This bustling city is one of France’s oldest and second largest, with more than 1500 years of history. It is a melting pot of diverse cultures and heritage, resulting in an explosion of colour, tastes and pleasant scents. From anywhere in Marseilles, travellers are within close proximity of the serene seaside, where the sky is a display of iridescent colours, on sunrise and sunset strolls.
With the introduction of swanky new museums like the MuCEM, Marseilles is a vibrant city, just waiting to be explored. Marseilles finds its appeal in the busy Vieux Port (Old Port), where a stroll along this ancient harbour gives travellers a taste of its thriving Mediterranean atmosphere. Treat yourself to a scenic escape to the beautiful city of Marseilles by booking a stay at one of these top Airbnb vacation rentals.
Each waking day at this charming hideaway will be filled with views of Marseilles’ vibrant marina. The rental features large doors and is tucked on the fourth floor of a building with a lift. It even has a balcony so you can enjoy the vistas leisurely. The interior is similarly excellent as it comes with modern fittings such as free Wi-Fi and an HDTV. The kitchen is pretty minimal, but it’s nicely furnished for everyday use.
It is also a great option if you plan to discover what’s in store in the lively downtown area. The metro and maritime shuttles right at the foot of the building come in handy for your excursion.
