  • Marseille in 3 words

    Dazzling, friendly but modest

  • My favourite neighbourhood

    Vauban and Notre-Dame de la Garde. For its village side, its small houses with flowery gardens, its lanes which invite you to stroll under the benevolent gaze of the “Bonne Mère”.

  • My favourite field

    Heritage. Just raise your eyes as you stroll through any district of Marseille to discover the beautiful facades and the rich ornamental sculpture that tells the history, particularly the maritime and commercial history of the city.

  • My tourist secret (shush only for friends)

    An aperitif on the rocks at the water’s edge, at sunset with white wine/sea urchins for the winter version and rosé/pizza for the summer version.

  • Marseille in 3 words

    Olfactive (the sea, pastis, spices, suntan oil), generous (in its kitchen, in its opening) and warm!

  • My favourite neighbourhood

    Longchamp (an old bourgeois district which has become trendy with small addresses and the proximity of the Longchamp park which is great for children, for its museums and for its Jazz festival every year in July).

  • My favourite field

    Decoration, design and Marseille has nothing to be ashamed of : Honoré déco, l’Ane Bleu, Maison Moutte, La Sélection de Sophie Ferjani, TheLine, etc… we have plenty to do !

  • My tourist secret (shush only for friends)

    The Cours Julien organic market on Wednesday morning, and stroll through the streets of the neighbourhood covered with tags, looking for a nice fashion or decoration item at the local craftsmen and antique dealers.

  • Marseille in 3 words

    Solar, bubbling, authentic

  • My favourite neighbourhood

    Saint-Victor. Historical district with its Abbey so famous in Marseille since it is there that the famous orange blossom shuttles are blessed every year at Candlemas, but also trendy district with great addresses for a drink and a meal.

  • My favourite field

    Social networks, up to date in real time with all the news, to go out, have a bite to eat, find good music!

  • My tourist secret (shush only for friends)

    L’Anse de la Fausse Monnaie and Malmousque cove for a nice view and a more confidential swimming spot.

  • Marseille in 3 words

    Sunny, exuberant, engaging

  • My favourite neighbourhood

    L’Estaque, for its friendly village atmosphere, its quiet little port (where you can taste the panisses as an aperitif), its narrow streets, its church, its dazzling views of the harbour, dear to the painters Cézanne, Braque, Monticelli… who all succumbed to the charms of the southern light.

  • My favourite field

    The architectural heritage of yesterday and today as well as museums by visiting the 17 or so museums in Marseille (from Antiquity to the present day).

  • My tourist secret (shush only for friends)

    A hike in the Calanques National Park accessible to all (young and old), a loop to be done quietly during the day: departure from the Pastré countryside, a cave, a pass later, is the reward with a picnic on the Marseilleveyre beach and a refreshing swim.
