Better to write it in English. I spent one day on July, 5th 2015. The only thing that this place has to offer is the pool. Unfortunately, you will not be able to use it at lunch, before 10:30 or after 18:30. The host is an old lady who obviously doesn't like at all to do B&B. She spends her... More

We stayed here for four days. La Palmeraie is a delightful residence. Situated on the outskirts of Marseille with the nearby beach just a bit of a walk away. There are plenty of snack places down there to have a drink or a bite to eat at lunch time. Suzy is an excellent host. Charming and most welcoming. The breakfasts... More

You will enjoy this unique B&B/ self catering French boutique style accommodation! The French theme continues throughout the property - furnishings, food, location and the surrounding area. Suzy is very welcoming and kind offering breakfast at a shared table with the other guests overlooking the pool. You can get to local places easily by local transport - boat or bus... More

We went here on total chance. It is a Lovely oasis with good location close to the beach, the local hangouts and communications to Marseille centre. We went to Cassis from here with two busses. Took about 2,5h. The lady who owns the place is absolutely adorable and makes a home made breakfast every morning. We were more than satisfied... More

We have had two wonderful weeks at La Palmeraie. A real oasis in Marseille which is perfectly situated for beaches and with easy connections into the city. Suzy Khalifa looked after us perfectly and we cannot recommend this chambre d'hote highly enough. Our room was exceptionally comfortable and beautifully furnished. We hope to return one day!

After taking in the fantastic Mucem museum we drove south on the Corniche du Pres. JFK and into Suzy's (nice) neighborhood a few, short blocks from the sea. Suzy is fantastic and the room was clean and very well stocked. We parked our car in front of her home and took her advise for dinner: check out my review of... More

Truly a gem hidden behind the walls of the property. Didn't expect that in the middle of the city but the photos didn't disappoint. Suzy was a joy and her attempts at speaking English was commendable. She and our 7 year old daughter really hit it off. I also appreciated her consideration of a one night stay as that is... More

A pleasant, quiet double room, off a shaded garden with a pool. All very relaxed and felt like a bit of an oasis after a hot day in town. Plenty of lounging space. The hostess is friendly and attentive. Breakfast was good. You breakfast communally, but it's a big table, so don't be intimidated! The location is pretty good, though... More

La Palmeraie is a lovely B&B located out of the centre of Marseille. It is super close to some sandy beaches on the Mediteranean and the cute shops and stores along the waterfront. The B&B itself is a beautiful oasis with a pool included. My mom and I were upgraded to the studio room which was lovely and has 2.5... More

I can't recommend this charming place too highly. It is located a couple of streets back from La Plage, the stretch of "beach" of the Marseilles harbourside a couple of kilometres from Vieux Ports, the tourist harbourside centre. The location of this guesthouse is good as the street parking here is good and it's a very accessible and convenient spot... More
