There isn't much to say about Le Petit Jardin that hasn't been said already...it is entirely deserving of its glowing reviews! Mauro and Serge were the perfect hosts, welcoming us with drinks on the terrace on arrival, always on-hand to provide suggestions and recommendations re restaurants and sights, and displaying an incredible eye for detail, particularly with regard to the...

My husband and I arrived here after visiting Nice and Cannes. We were greeted by Mauro who kindly helped with our bags and then met Serge who entertained us for an hour with many stories! Mauro's breakfasts were a daily delight along with his ever changing dining sets and he was more than happy to advise us on the best... More

Le Petit Jardin is a unique haven in an otherwise busy city. The hosts, Mauro and Serge, are the loveliest B&B owners you will ever meet - friendly, welcoming, and really go over and above to ensure that their guests are comfortable. Mauro even offered to meet us in town when we first arrived, so that we would have no... More

Heaven on earth in Marseille, that's Le Petit Jardin: peaceful, tranquil, away from the hustle and bustle when you want, yet at just 10 minutes from the Old Port and the city centre. Mauro spoilt us with gorgeous breakfasts, slightly different every day. He and Serge really have an eye for detail and they are honoustly interested in their guests'... More

Serge and Mauro are possibly the nicest men we have ever met. We stayed in their Asia room, your own private luxury cave with direct access to the beautiful little garden. It was private, beautiful and unique. But probably surpassed by the hosts! Their terrace where you take breakfast (and what a gorgeous feast that is, Mauro takes such pleasure... More

After spending 4 days in Paris, and then a magnificent cruise down the Rhone river, we thought we could not experience anything better, and then we arrived at "Le Petit jardin" to be welcomed by Mauro and Serge as if we were family. My wife has a little trouble descending steps, so after having drinks with Mauro and Serge the... More

When I was looking for last minute accommodation in Marseille and read the reviews of this B&B, I thought it was too good to be true. And being able to book a room with just one day's notice I was convinced we were going to be disappointed. How wrong could I be! Every word of every review written before is... More

Lies the most wonderful b&b experience. My wife and I received a warm and friendly welcome from Mauro & Serge, who were so so helpful throughout our stay. Mauro & Serge have created an enchanting oasis of peace and tranquility in the bustling city that is Marseille. You will see from the photos already posted how fantastic their house is.... More

Absolutely wonderful, We stayed here on our trip to Marseille about two years ago, and of all of the places we stayed in France (including in Paris), this was our favorite. The room was magnificent (and romantic!), the host friendly and helpful. We couldn't have asked for a better place. It is a bit of a walk into town, but... More

Everything about this B&B is unusually good - the room, the breakfast, the welcome from Mauro and Serge, their hospitality, and the help (if required) with planning one's time in Marseille. It all adds up to a most pleasurable holiday experience.
