Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    Marseille is just a big and loud city, it’s beautiful but there are better cities to visit in France like Lyon or Paris (or Montpellier). The traffic jams to parking at L’espiguette can be frustrating, go either early or in the afternoon (or take or rent a bike).

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Rent a bike in the Aigues Mortes and/or Montpellier area

  • Packing tips?

    Bring an umbrella against too much sun and wind

  • Transportation Tips?

    Cycle and car are a must

Lodging

  • La Villa D’Orient (Villa in the east) - great location near beach and hike trails. Beautiful tropical garden and rooftop terraces for you to relax

  • Hotel les Templiers, great location in the heart of the historic city within the city walls, rooms with Middle Ages feel

  • Hotel Oceania Le Metropole, great rooms, disappointing swimming pool. Good located near old town
