We recently returned from a 5 night stay at Les Acanthes and are already planning a return trip. Though it was January and "low" season there was plenty to do and see and the weather was very cooperative with 60s and sunny every day. We took day trips to Cassis, Aux and a half day with Provence Wine Tours as... More

Les Acanthes was the highlight of the of our 5 day stay in Marseille at the end of September. It was wonderful to come back to such a lovely, beautiful and peaceful setting after spending the day exploring the city. The location is excellent - easy access to the Metro and buses. St. Barnabe itself is a great neighbourhood -... More

We stayed two nights at Les Acanthes and were so happy to have found such a conveniently located (for metro transport into the port area and old city) but quiet and calm environment. Our hostess greeted us warmly and we felt completely comfortable in her home. She and her husband treated us as friends and we enjoyed chatting with them... More

You might not think it's possible to have a holiday that combines, each day, the peace and tranquillity of the country with the energy and excitement of the city. But that's exactly what you get when you take a holiday in Marseille and make Les Acanthes your base. Located in the suburb of St Barnabe, a former village long absorbed... More

We enjoyed 3 nights at Les Acanthes. We were very surprised to be the only guests during our stay in early August- it must be a well kept secret, but one we would like to share with any travellers looking for a clean, comfortable and tranquil place to stay when visiting Marseilles. 10-15 minutes by Metro from the centre of...

If you are planning a trip to Marseille, les Achantes is for sure a lovely place to stay. You will find a real and charming “Provençale” atmosphere surrounded by elegant antique furniture. The rooms are perfect and Odile and Pierre, the two hosts, are so “charmant”. They will welcome you as old friends and will give you all the information... More

I find it difficult to express how much I loved Les Acanthes. Odile and Piere are such welcoming hosts. It is a quiet little oasis in the busy city of Marseilles, an old hunting lodge that has been in Odile's family since the 1930's. We stayed in the Apartment as we were in Marseilles for 7 days and it was... More

We arrived at this 17th century shooting lodge which is an oasis amongst the chaos of Marseille. Warmly greeted by Odile & Pierre we stayed in the apartment which was just perfect with room to move and comfortably appointed, the bed was a touch small for us we are both really tall but very comfortable. Breakfast of bread, jams, local... More

From the warm welcome on arrival to our very reluctant farewell, Les Acanthes exceeded all our expectations. Odile is a perfect hostess, helpful, tolerant and charming. The location is perfect; the quiet of an out of town spot with the convenience of access to the centre of Marseille within minutes. Breakfasts were delicious - tasty breads, different every day, served... More

Très bon séjour aux Acanthes. Odile est une personne très accueillante et bon service. Je recommande les Acanthes. A very nice stay for 5 days in Marseille, a nice house hidden from busy streets but close to the metro and very relaxing. For those used to BnBs this is a great option, the breakfasts are simple and great advise for... More
