Designed in the shape and feel of a sailboat, this lofty vacation home rental in Marseille sits right along the Corniche with picture perfect views of the Mediterranean. We like the interesting configuration of the bright open spaces and the selection of vintage and contemporary pieces that give it polish and style.
Set along the edge of the Mediterranean sea on the famous Corniche Kennedy, this vacation home rental in Marseille imitates the lines and feel of a sail boat heading out to sea.
Just steps from the water’s edge and the neighboring shops, the loft is situated between Maldormé and Malmousque in one of the best neighborhoods in the city.
One of only two apartments in the building, the loft occupies the entire second floor and is constructed on two levels with an open plan living dining and kitchen area on the bottom floor lined with balconies.
Upstairs are two en suite double bedrooms connected by a bridge overlooking the living room with stunning views of the sea, the Chateau d’If and the islands of Friuli. Nestled into the angled roof lines, each room is illuminated by skylights with curtains for privacy.
A mixed collection of mid century and contemporary furnishings and decor along with a neutral palette give it an air of ease and refinement.
Wifi, TV, cable TV, Bluetooth audio system, Nespresso coffee machine, bathrobes, laundry facilities.
The bustling port city of Marseille owes its sometimes gritty reputation to the fact that it has been the hub of global trade for the country since Roman times and is a major crossroads of cultures and commerce. France’s second largest city, the harbor is flanked by the two imposing forts on either side and intersected by the Canebière boulevard stretching east from the Old Port to the Réformés quarter. The commercial center of the city intersects at rue St Ferréol and the Centre Bourse (the main shopping mall) with several pedestrian zones, including the area around the Hôtel de Ville, rue St Ferréol and Cours Julien near the Music Conservatory, and the Cours Honoré-d’Estienne-d’Orves off the Old Port. Le Panier neighborhood is the oldest in the city and sits just up the hill behind the center, while the stylish République quarter features the traditional and elegant Haussmannian style architecture and the Joliette area features the famous striped Cathédrale de la Major.
