Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 16, 2013

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 area, the beautiful foothills and such are nice for walks. The Bastide is so different from your average hostel, so much history! More than worth it... I actually stayed there 3 or 4 years ago and have been regretting never giving them a good review, so here it is! Would love to return.

We saw the lady owner only on arrival - she want sorry that the bill was not ready yet (we did booked for 2 nights).
Bedroom - ok old style with some white pain on it to make it nice.Do not use the plugs they are coming out of the walls and already full of extensionsleads...
We did booked for 2 nights and our room was not refresh on the morning they only clear the tbreakfast tray... that was a surprise!
WC - an horrible smell of suage in the toilet and bedroom corridor at all time!! Discasting!!
Bathroom - tiny space with a shower and a shower curtain (I hate shower curtain) in the corner. And no door between the shower room and the berdoom just a curtain. No Privacy.
Breakfast - a basket with french bread (1 piece each) is left on the front of your door with a flask of coffee, you will have to do your own tea as the kettle is in the room.You need to have your breakast in the room!
Pool - dirty.
I will not recommend this called 'B&B' - it look more that they rent the rooms out for some extra cah.
I can't post photos as we ask not too - there is a sign the bed room.

This is a real gem! Its not a hostel, this is a 5 star boutique gorgeous place. In a picturesk setting. The interior was beautiful, the rooms were clean. The owners are so sweet and REALLY looked after us. They picked us up on numerous occasions and dropped us at the metro station. That was so sweet, you dont get that often!They even printed us out timetables and told us great places to go. Quiet and safe area.

ITs not far out....you dont want to be in the heart of Marseille anyway, its dirty and not the nicest city ive been to, so its nice to get out of a busy city.

Everything about this place is purfect. The walls are thin but just bring an earplug its no biggy its an old house. Its hard to find really quiet rooms anyway.

p.s Make sure you always have a ticket for the train...we were stung an arm and a leg when we were on the train!!!

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 you wish to have it. I would certainly stay here when I come back to Marseille

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 bathroom and breakfast was waiting outside my door in the morning. Hosts are very friendly, offering to order in pizza to the house and provide loads of information about the area inc bus timetables etc. All in all great place to stay especially at such a reasonable cost. WOULD DEFINATELY RECOMMEND!
