Stairway to loft

It is almost 12 at night when Agnès, the owner of our historic design loft texts to check if we arrived safely and are on our way to her place. It is a personal touch we get to encounter a lot more during our stay in France’s second largest city: Marseille.

Where the city, like so many ports around the world, seems to be a bit rough at first, it is people like Agnès who give it the warmth of the Mediterranee. Tips, tricks, places to eat, to drink, to enjoy music, architecture, art, fashion; this and more is all presented like small gifts by our landlord-for-a-weekend. A weekend partly spend on the rooftop balcony of 61 Rue Sénac de Meilhan. A tastefully decorated place with a mix of Swedish design and vintage furniture in the middle of a hip, upcoming neighborhood and within walking distance of the old harbor, old town and central station.

Marseillais like Agnès are what make Marseille a worthwhile destination for a city trip. Marseille’s inhabitants are warm and friendly, a colorful melting pot of all the good things our world has to offer. Thanks to its international orientation as a centuries (millennia) old shipping port, massive immigration and a great effort by the French government, Marseille is a fine choice for all who love culture, food, fashion, urban adventure and, thanks to a mini archipelago right in front of the city, even nature.
