The southern city of Marseille, France brims with old-world romance, and Citadines Prado Chanot Marseille immerses you in its charm. The property is few minutes away from Chanot Park, the Congress Centre and Stade Vélodrome. Enjoy a picnic at the park or watch a football game at the stadium depending on the season.
When in Marseille, a stopover at the Notre-Dame de la Garde is necessary. Colloquially referred to as la bonne mère, or the good mother, it is an icon and space filled with light and hope for the sailors and fishermen of Marseille. See rows of shimmering votive candles and ex-votos here, while you enjoy a moment of calm.
For a different cultural experience, take a boat trip to Château d'If, a fortress-turned-prison immortalised in Alexandre Dumas’ classic novel, The Count of Monte Cristo. A bastion of high ramparts and gun platforms, its magnificence is a draw for many photographers.
Spend the day outdoors. The city is blessed with sunny weather for 300 days a year. Go to the pristine Prado beaches or opt for cruises to see the creeks. In the evening, catch an exciting arts performance at Théâtre de la Criée and be touched by the passion and talent of the actors.
Return to your residence after dinner, all sun kissed and happy. With high-speed Internet access, you can readily share your adventures with your friends on the other side of the world.
