Nice flat in Marseille, France

We already have plans for summer 2020

We are a family of 4. Sylvain & Nathalie, both 45, and our two sons: Marc, who is 14 and Lazare, who is 9.

We live in a nice apartment in a pleasant and convenient neighborhood called "5 avenues". Our apartment is in a small building from the fifties, with a balcony with plants and a bistro table, where you can take a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.

Our home is particularly convenient for a family with two kids (or three), like us. We have a lot of toys. We can house up to 6 people. We have 3 bedrooms : one with a double bed, one with 1 or 2 single beds if needed, one with 1 single bed. We can add a cot if needed or one may sleep in the couch.
The house is filled with vintage furniture and has a vintage atmosphere, but is yet modern and comfy.
Movies and books lovers will enjoy their stay (we also have a lot of books in english). This is also a house for musicians! We have a keyboard, guitars, a ukulele and a flute...
