Destination guide

Experience Marseille from holiday lettings

Holiday lettings on the French Riviera are especially satisfying when you stay in a city like Marseille. The motto of the city roughly translates to, ‘The city of Marseille shines from its great achievements’, and that statement is no exaggeration. Historical buildings, pristine shorelines and breathtaking natural formations are prominent throughout the area, which is why it’s consistently one of the top destinations for travellers. You can explore everything it has to offer for yourself on your next holiday.


Historical sites near your Marseille holiday rental

As a historical French port, Marseille is packed with sites from centuries past. The Old Port area is still active and is guarded by two forts on either side. Fort Saint-Nicolas and Fort Saint-Jean are 17th-century structures that have been remarkably well preserved and you’re free to explore them on your own. You may also want to visit the Marseille Cathedral of Sainte-Marie-Majeure. The sprawling Romanesque Byzantine Revival building was built in the mid 19th century, but the old cathedral nearby dates back to the 12th century.

How to get around

Transport to Marseille holiday homes

Arriving at holiday homes in Marseille is easy thanks to Marseille Provence Airport. This international airport is one of the busiest in France, so catching a flight straight to your destination shouldn’t be a problem. If you’re already in France, there is an extensive network of motorways connecting Marseille to other major cities, and there’s railway access as well from Gare de Marseille Saint-Charles. To travel around Marseille itself, you can take the tramway system or bus rapid transit to get virtually anywhere in town. The roads are easy to traverse as well, so a car hire is a valuable option as well.

Food & drink

Taste Marseille’s signature cuisine near holiday cottages

Marseille has a culture of its own that’s unique compared to the rest of France. With that culture comes a variety of food you can’t really find anywhere else. Among the most popular is bouillabaisse. This seafood dish consists of local fresh fish, often three different varieties, cooked with potatoes and vegetables along with a baguette and rouille (a spread made with spices and homemade mayo). Typically, bouillabaisse is prepared for large groups, and the more people you have with you, the more varieties of fish the chef typically includes. You can wash it down with a bit of Pastis, a local alcoholic beverage. It has been historically associated with absinthe, but the beverages are notably different with the included anise coming from the Mediterranean rather than Asia and the lack of wormwood.


Events near your Marseille holiday rental

As one of the largest cities in France, there’s no shortage of events to enjoy here no matter where your holiday rental is in town. In June, you can enjoy the Fête de la Musique where musicians both professional and amateur take to the streets and showcase their talents. It’s free so there’s no barrier to entry whatsoever. If you’re a fan of dance music, you may want to visit Marseille in late September for Marsatac. This festival features numerous national and international electronica artists, and tens of thousands of people attend every year. If that doesn’t sate your musical desire, October features the Fiesta des Suds, a celebration of world music that focuses exclusively on international artists playing more unique and regional genres of music.
