The bustling French port city of Marseille caters to short term renters with a number of properties that offer all of the comforts and conveniences of home.
Located in southern France, rough and ready Marseille may lack the chic and glamour of its regional neighbours, but its edgy appeal still draws large numbers of visitors every year. A sizeable portion of them come here for extended periods and choose to stay in a short-term rental home, rather than a conventional hotel. Below are three of the best online resources for finding short-term rentals in Marseille.
Booking.com are our favourite online resource for finding a furnished short-stay apartment in Marseille for anything from a few days up to a few weeks. The platform has a globally renowned reputation and is known primarily as a hotel booking website, though they also have a substantial number of listed apartments. When we looked for daily or weekly rentals in Marseille, around 591 apartments were available, starting at just €43 per night for a one-bed apartment on La Canebière, a historic high street in the old quarter of Marseille,. Booking.com also offer a Best Price Guarantee as well as a customer reviews section under each property so you can read about the experience of previous guests.
A popular platform for people looking for monthly furnished rentals, Homelike’s flexible check-in and check-out dates let guests be flexible with their plans up to the very last moment. While booking via other rental platforms can often be a complex process, Homelike keeps it nice and simple, showing photography and essential descriptions of the apartments, with icons used to display the property’s amenities. On our chosen dates, we found 168 apartments available in Marseille, with prices starting at €753 per month (around €25 per night) for a furnished one-bed property in the district of Le Rouet, and rising to €12,976 (around $432) for a huge eight-bedroom apartment on the outskirts of the city.
With over 120 Marseille properties on its books, Spotahome has a fine selection of apartments for rent spread all the way across the city and even down the coast as far as Saint Loup. Monthly rates range from as little as €420 for a single room in a shared apartment to €1,450 for a two-bedroom flat in the city centre. It’s worth mentioning that these prices can drop by as much as 7% if the apartment is rented out for a period of 6 months. Like most short-term rental companies, Spotahome adds administration fees to the advertised price, so you should make sure you fully understand the extent of those costs before confirming a rental.
