Typical house near the sea and the city center of Marseille

Our house is old (but renovated!) and typical from the area and especially Marseille.
Three levels: at the first floor, you can find the kitchen and the living-room, the second one has main bathroom, toilets, Rafaël and Antoine's bedrooms, with two single beds. At the third floor, attic floor, there are Colin's bedroom with a large bed, and parents' one, with large bed too, and a private bathroom. Separated toilets on this floor.
The house has a little courtyard, where breakfasts are pleasant. It is cool and shady in Summer, like house.
House is situed in a little street, with stairs, very quiet and typical. District and neighborhood are very nice and safe.

Marseille is a great and nice city, with a lot of cultural Mediterranean influences.In the south of the city, you can also discover the National Park of Calanques. In 2013, Marseille and surroundings was European Capital of Culture, with a lot of new cultural places.
The city is ideally situated : half an hour to Aix en Provence and Sainte-Victoire, mountain loved by Cezanne, one hour to Camargue, to Alpilles and their little villages, to Avignon and his great summer festival, two hours to Alps, or Nice.

French
Notre maison est ancienne et de construction traditionnelle marseillaise. Elle est répartie en 3 niveaux : le rez-de-chaussée qui contient cuisine et salon, le 1er étage qui abrite salle de bain, chambres de Rafaël et Antoine, et enfin, le second étage qui est occupé par la chambre des parents et sa salle d'eau, ainsi que la chambre de Colin. Le second étage est mansardé.
La maison dispose d'une petite cour, très agréable pour prendre le petit déjeuner au frais ! La maison elle-même est fraîche et ombragée en été.
La maison est située dans une petite rue très calme au pied d'escaliers, très typiques.

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: Marseille-Provence - 25 minutes / 26 km

Our district is very close to downtown (15 minutes from Vieux Port). It's easy to use common transports.
The Catalans beach, a sand one, is closer: only 5 minutes by feet from home. From here, you can also hike on the Corniche (road upon the sea), Notre Dame de la Garde (church symbol of Marseille), and a lot of little charming streets, full of stairs and flowers. A little bit further: the Calanques, National Park into the city!

Notre quartier est situé très près du centre-ville de Marseille (15 mn à pied du Vieux-Port et des rues commerçantes). Il est desservi par de nombreux bus.A proximité : la plage des Catalans, plage de sable, à 5mn à pied de la Corniche : route qui surplombe la mer, Notre Dame-de-la-Garde, église symbole de Marseille, qui domine la ville... Et beaucoup de ruelles fleuries à découvrir en flânant...Un peu plus loin, les Calanques, massif de montagnes qui plonge dans la mer et qui est un quartier de la ville !

Lifestyle

We love travels, and for us, swaps are perfect to discover a country, a city, like an inhabitant.
Pierre, Colin and Antoine like outdoor sports like paragliding, scuba diving, BMX, ski... I like outdoor too, like hiking and ski touring, and also art, and urban culture. I love cooking and discover new recipes during travels! And Rafaël is open!
