A charming and relatively successful attempt to create a Provencal idyll in the midst of Marseille's grime. Located on the fringes of La Plaine, the city's up and coming artistic quarter, Un Mas en Ville would never be considered family-friendly or city chic. There are indeed lots of rickety wooden stairs to climb, small, traditional timber beds, rustic bathrooms, basic country breakfasts. don't turn up expecting wi-fi, hairdryers, air-conditioning, irons, lifts: they ain't there. And no, the owners don't speak good English at all and are apologetic about it. But you're in France, aren't you?
Good: decent location for main central sites; lovely, accessible and secluded garden with pool; peace and quiet.
Not so good: cleaning and bin-emptying (absent throughout our four-day stay); breakfasts maybe a bit too basic even for our needs; tiny toilets take some negotiating for anybody over five feet tall.
All in all, not bad. But please don't quibble about rustic simplicity when you've got the internet at home and haven't bothered to even check what you're getting.
