Between the Medterranean sea and vertiginous cliffs, the Villa d'Orient is nestled in a Marseille Calanque. Our Villa was built at the beginning of the 20th century in Moroccan style; our guests will be delighted with its exotic garden and its panoramic terraces, a few steps from the seaside, facing the wonderful calanques massif. We can go to the city center by bus in 20 minutes.

he Villa d'Orient is a wonderful discovery for anyone who wants to holiday away from the corporate, predictable atmosphere of so many hotels. It is small, intimate but beautiful - an Art Deco house maintained in the style of its 1904 origin. Individual touches of antiques furnish the lovely breakfast room and the little garden crammed with perennial plants is a welcome relief from the dazzling sun of the South of France. Only 300 yards from the sea, you can bathe in the glorious azure bliss of the Med from a tiny pebbly bay and see the top of the Villa . We stayed in this loft style room surrounded by a generous terrace . Furnished stylishly in purple hues with intriguing paintings it is small in scale but delightful in the view from no less than two sets of French windows on to the cliffs of the Calanque. I wandered out one early morning and found myself serenaded by an astonishing chorus of birds from this wonderful wilderness beyond. Although the temperatures outside soared the room her with delightfully wafted by breezes from the Calanques and never stuffy. The Villa has smaller rooms below giving on to the garden and the proprietor, Vincent, inhabits the middle floor with his charming partner Christophe. He is truly a lovely host , always ready with timetables of boats, routes of little buses and suggestions for fun in the lovely city of Marseilles. A highlight of the delightful breakfast laid for us in the quaint conservatory was the gorgeous jam which is genuinely homemade by we hear Vincent's talented mother - a small touch perhaps but it sums up the care taken to provide every comfort in this paradisiacal little corner of the world. .

I can recommend this property mostly because of this reasons: Price, Free Parking, Free WiFi at lobby, Quiet place and amazing location in the Calanques of Marseille. If you do not miss see view this is the perfect place for holiday. First of all, Vincent (the owner Manager) is an incredibly kind and helpful person, the whole atmosphere is very homely and peaceful! The location is great, just 2 minutes walk from the beach, and to GR departures in the Calanques. The purple room on the top floor has a view of the ocean. The breakfast is tasty with homemade marmalade. I can just highly recommend to everyone to visit this place for having a nice stay.

I will be very objective about this place and to do that I will first of all say that it is located in a beautiful spot of the Calanques, next to a beach and to the start of hiking routes: I highly recommend the hike through the Calanques along the coast departing from callelongue. It is amazingly beautiful!. As a second note there is a great restaurant close by called "petit port" and it is definitely worth to try it (it is not particularly cheap though). With that being said, I have to strongly disagree with the high ratings of the bed and breakfast and here is why (I was staying in the yellow room): 1. The bathroom is not really separated from the room, please look at pictures. This might result very unpleasant at times. Everything was clean though 2. The shower head is not fixed, you have to hold it. Furthermore the water is not always warm, specially in the evening it is quite cold. 3. The bedding is old and (as the couch) it can be a problem for allergic people 4. There were no fruits or ham or cheese in the breakfast (but this is not necessarily uncommon in bed and breakfasts in france). We had the same breakfast during the three days we stayed there, and the same amount of it as well. 5. The wifi was only available in the common room. 6. The manager, although polite was not very welcoming or friendly. He was simply polite and open to answer very punctual questions. All in all I was expecting more from a place with such reviews and for the price we payed.

We had a fabulous time here (2 weeks in the studio). Only 10 min drive away from the maddening crowd of Marseille's major beaches you feel here as if you are in a small fishing village. The house is only a few footsteps away from the beach and has a real oasis of a cool garden. You can watch the sun set in the sea each night on the roof terasse. The studio was well equipped, and sitting at the table near the window you looked out onto the sea. Vicent and his friends were very helpful and friendly. We loved our stay here.
