Hard to find especially when you are coming late night, and everyone in the city are watching France - Italy football match. Apart from that, charm, comfort, french style chateau rooms, a friendly atmosphere, nice and helpful owner. Very pleasant time spending here. Memorable the breakfast in the yard.

Huge rooms, nicely supplied. Slept well! Breakfast is basic (bread, jam, tea), and the Wi-Fi was spotty in some areas of the room, but once you found a good spot, it worked well! For a huge city with tons of construction work going on, this place provided a quiet stay that I enjoyed.

The hosts are very friendly and the house is absolutely gorgeous. The locals are really nice if you need directions and the little village has such charm, great for walks and good food. The local museum was also interesting. Takes a little time to get into Marseille but it is so worth it to see the quieter side of the... More

After a long trip from Italy we were more than happy with our room at the Bastide de l'Etoile. A large, well equipped room in a quiet area. A little outside of town but easy to reach the centre of Marseille. The owners are friendly and nothing was too much trouble. I especially like that breakfast is available for when... More

Everything about this place is lovely...it is in a nice little village just outside Marseille with really easy and quick transport links into the centre. Village is just a few minutes walk down the road and has restaurants, shops, a little museum. Beautiful old house with a pool and loungers outside for relaxing. My room was clean with a nice... More

If you don't have a car, I'm not sure this place is a good idea. But if you do, it's perfect for exploring the area. The pool looks nice, but it was quite windy at the hotel, so we opted for the beach at Cassis instead, and then went up to Aix-en-Provence and Avignon for a day each. The place... More

Very cozy and roomy after staying in Paris. The only downside was that the hotel was far from the city so it takes a while to take the bus and the Metro into Marseille. Also, the bus stops running at about 9:00 at night, so we were forced to walk back one night. This is probably not the best place... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In a very secure and quiet area of Marseille, this hostel offers charm, very large rooms and a friendly atmosphere. You can park your car inside the property for free and breakfast is included. The sunny rooms overlook the landscape and the swimming pool. The house has been recently restored and is a rare survival of a 19th century Bastide. A haven of peace and silence inside Marseille surrounded by a walled garden. ... more   less
