About Christine et Marc
Being both from Marseille, we know the city pretty well and will be glad to answer any questions so that you can make the best of your stay. We are always available by phone or email and we can suggest you the best tips ( restaurants, visits, hiking...).
Why Christine et Marc chose 8th Arrondissement
The house is 2 minutes walk from the great public park Pastré with its 112 hectares : fitness circuit, sports areas for kids, tree climbing, riding school, wonderful gardens where dogs are welcome... and there is a local producers market too where you will find all locally-based products ( olive oil, vegetable, meat, fish, cheese...).
What makes this House unique
The bus-stop is 300 m from the house. Oneway to go staight to the city center of Marseille and the other way to travel through the Calanques. We highly advise you to take the sea shuttle to go to the island of Frioul : Wonderful ! Complete exotic place and great restaurant on the spot !

A comfortable gem
The charming house is well and accurately described . We were glad to find a washing machine in addition to what was mentioned.
The garden is lovely and private and the neighborhood very quiet and pleasant. We were there the 3rd week of June and never felt too warm inside the house. The bakery and closest market are lierally within 5 minute slow walk and both are good quality. The house is more than well supplied with linen, pots, dishes and hot water.
We didn't get to meet Marc but were beguiled by Christine and her friend who are down to earth , funny and creative. Christine suggested that if we didn't want to have a long, hard hike into the Calanques we could reserve at a restaurant and thus be allowed to drive in. This was a great suggestion for us lazy septuagenarians.
We spent about half of our week in Marseille and half in or near the calanques. As others have said it's a good balance. The ferry from Pointe Rouge into the Vieux Porte is great and we really enjoyed our 8 calanques boat tour from Cassis. Thabk you Christine and Marc!

We loved every aspect and element of this beautiful house. Felt at home.
Christine and Marc were exceptionally organised and lovely.
I will stay here again definitely.
Peaceful, charming house
A traditional home with great cooking facilities and a lovely garden to enjoy. The charming decor is carefully chosen to suit the house. Nearby are green grocers, bakeries, fishmonger and butchers. The kitchen was well equipped with basics like salt and pepper, oil, sugar, coffee, tea. Christine and Marc are wonderful hosts. They are very kind, generous and gentle people, helpful with information and quick to respond to questions. A great "city beach" experience. The only downside to the location is the time to city centre--not due to distance, but due to traffic. Transit is good, but there is only one route into and out of Montredon, so on warm weekends the traffic is fierce. Which actually just means we stayed close and enjoyed a relaxing time. Merci Marc et Christine. C'était très agréable de vous rencontrer.
Excellent, quiet location near a number of beaches
A great spot and really cool owners. A car is recommended; however there is easy bus access 2 blocks away with connections to the Metro. The mass transit system is very good - clean and on time - it's better than driving into the city. Close drive or bus to Les Goudes, which is sort of the beginning of the Calanques - beautiful sunsets and hikes. Easy day trips to Sormiou (nice beach and hiking). The house is 1 to 2 blocks from markets for fresh fish, baguettes, vegetables and meat. Montredon is a bit out of the city center but it really worked for us. The house was fully equipped for cooking meals - it is as shown in the photos. Loved Marseille - just the right amount of funk, culture and the sea. Highly recommended.
A big, big, big thank you for your very nice review. See you soon with big pleasure ! Best regards. Christine and Marc
Gemütliches Haus mit allem Urlaubskomfort
Wir waren mit der Familie und unseren Hunden Anfang Oktober hier. Es ist ein gemütliches, schönes Haus und mit allem ausgestattet, was man für die Ferien benötigt. Sehr zentral zu den Wanderwegen der Calanques. Mit dem Bus ist man in kürzester Zeit mitten in Marseille. Die Strände sind fußläufig erreichbar. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt es in der Nähe. Wir haben uns dort sehr wohlgefühlt! Die Vermieter, Christine und Marc, sind sehr freundlich und nett. Wir würden das Haus jederzeit wieder mieten. Vielen Dank!
