Cultivating the beauty of each detail and a true sense of hospitality, this is a guest house unlike any other. Ideally located on a quaint street across from Marseilles' Saint Charles train station, and just a short walk from the Old Port, this comfortable bed and breakfast blends the quality services of a hotel with the authentic charm of a maison d'hôtes and a vibrant international ambiance.
Along with the warm, attentive welcome and stylish decor, we have five luminous rooms with retro 20th-century furnishings, lovingly unearthed by your host, an aficionado of the second-hand shops and village sales of Provence.
Each room has its own entrance and a private bathroom and toilet, along with a flat-screen television, Wi-Fi and reversible air conditioning. Breakfast is served in a pleasant communal dining area and can be eaten quickly at the counter or while seated at beautiful Parisian bistro tables.
We have a central and practical location in the heart of downtown Marseille, on a quiet street which is conveniently located and easy to reach. We're just two minutes by foot from the Saint Charles train station (TGV, local trains) and the bus station (Aix-en-Provence; airport shuttles), four minutes by foot to the tramway, the metro, and the famous boulevard La Canebière, and ten minutes by foot to the Old Port and the city's historic district.
