Jean and Colette were wonderful hosts! They made us feel welcome, even though they knew little English. The room was clean, spacious, and had a lovely private terrace. The internet was down during our stay, which was a little frustrating (for us and for them), but they made up for it by kindly dropping us off at the metro station...

Villa Monticelli suited our needs in that it is not far from the medical facilities we were visiting. Our room (Cézanne) was large, quiet, and comfortable. High marks for the comfort of the king-sized bed. This is a B and B, not a hotel, but the proprietors do their best to be accommodating to special needs, for example purchasing gluten-free...

My wife and I just returned from a 22 day trip in Spain, and the south of France, concluding with a 3 night stay in Marseille. We are big B&B fans, and favor them over hotels whenever possible.I had cancelled a reservation I had elsewhere and booked Villa Monticelli based on photos, description, and reviews I read on Trip Advisor....

The location is perfect in the south part of Marseille, in a residential neighbourhood along the coast and very close to the center. The beaches and the Borely parc are just a 20 minutes walk from the villa, which is a perfect spot to go for a run! We had a very nice stay, with a very friendly host in...

1st time: although we had a confirmation # for our on line booking, and had given our credit card references, there was no room available when we arrived. 2nd time: booking by phone. As requested, we sent a retainer cheque, which was received by the owners, but we first obtained a written booking confirmation after having specifically asked for it....

We loved the feeling we had in this villa because you instantly have a feeling of being at home. The owners are friendly, the beds are huge and very comfortable. Maybe breakfast could be a little better with some extra salty options (eg cheese). The neighbourhood is pretty fine as it is residencial but city center is two bus stops...

We stayed for 8 nights in August/September. We had arrived by Eurostar and the directions provided on the website delivered us to the villa without difficulty. Colette and Jean are lovely - very friendly and welcoming. Jean provided us with a local map and spent a long time advising us on the best places to visit and eat - very...

Villa Monticelli was a fantastic choice. It is run by Collette and her husband, Jean. It really is an old villa in a leafy neighborhood of villas, many of which are now consulates. It is near shopping and restaurants. Collette and a friend of hers told me where I could get a French phone nearby. We had a large room...

We stayed at the villa for an extended weekend and... oh how we wished to stay longer! The villa is located in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood a little bit outside of the city center but still in walking distance to it and the beach. All rooms are lovingly furnished and decorated in a very classy, french way that makes you...
