“The apartment was beautifully decorated and comfortable. It was very well located to explore all the attractions of Marseille. Helene and Roland were quick to respond to our requests and we had the opportunity to meet them as well as their son Victor. They made us feel welcome in their apartment and were very personable. Thank you for accommodating us and making our vacation most enjoyable,”
Hélène & Roland's reviewsAs a host (3)
“My friend and I visited Helene and Rolands apartment fairly last minute having found bargain Ryanair flights. Helene was fast and efficient replying. The apartment was great perfectly positioned for everything with a lovely little terrace. Helene gave us great info on where to go. We really did not have enough time. We took the boat trip out to the islands. Roamed around markets and arty district and took little train up to the Basilica. (Amazing). We will have to return to to summer boat and Cassis and Aix all nearby. Thanks to to Helene and Roland. ”
“Nous avons été reçus par Victor, le fils d'Hélène et de Roland. Victor a été très sympa avec nous et nous a donné des conseils sur quoi voir à Marseille.. L'appartement est très confortable tout près du vieux port. Nous somme vraiment satisfaits de notre séjour!”
