1st district of Marseille

1st district of Marseille

The 1st district of Marseille is mainly the district of the Vieux-Port, animated by the elegance of its hotels, its Art-Deco Opera, its waterfront cafés as well as its unmistakable Mediterranean restaurants where the famous bouillabaisse is served.

The Panier district, the historical cradle of the city, is full of discreet corners, antique shops of all kinds and small trattoria-like restaurants where shopkeepers, inhabitants and tourists meet on terraces in the shade of a few olive trees. Its colorful and winding streets easily recall a certain Neapolitan folklore.

4th district of Marseille

4th district of Marseille

Located just a stone's throw from the city center in the 4th arrondissement of Marseille, Longchamp and Cinq Avenues are the traditional bourgeois neighborhoods of Marseille. The buildings are essentially Haussmannian in style and surround the famous Palais Longchamp: a neo-classical-Second-Empire style water palace from the 19th century magnified by its park.

6th district of Marseille

6th district of Marseille

Avenue du Prado, the second widest avenue in France after the Champs-Élysées, Cours Lieutaud and its Haussmannian facades, or rue Paradis and its architectural treasures... These well-known downtown streets give this area a reputation and a cachet all its own in Marseille. But it is Castellane and its square that give the district its name.

7th district of Marseille

7th district of Marseille

Its natural beauty and rich heritage are such that it is quite delicate to describe a part of the 7th arrondissement to reveal all its splendor. Endoume, revealing Marseille's treasures, Les Catalans, the Vallon des Auffes, Malmousque, and its Corniche, which honor the Grande Bleue at every moment, nothing seems ordinary. Straddling the districts of Roucas-Blanc and Vauban, perched on its limestone peak, rises finally the emblem of the Phocaean city: Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde

From the strategic Prado artery, through the continuity of the 7th arrondissement's beaches, to the last village of Marseille on the edge of the Calanques, the 8th arrondissement of Marseille is today the most sought-after sector of the city. Its wide open spaces, proximity to amenities and tranquility attract a large number of current and future Marseille residents.

9th district of Marseille

The Gineste pass and its unequalled panorama on the city, but also the creeks with enchanting names: Sormiou, Morgiou, Sugiton, En-Vau, Port-Pin, or others, less known but just as picturesque, such as Mounine, Pouars or Podestat, the 9th district of Marseille promises a natural, serene and family environment for its inhabitants.

11th district of Marseille

11th district of Marseille

It has 11 neighborhoods among the most easterly of the city and offers everyone the possibility to escape to the Provencal hills. Starting, of course, with La Treille and Éoures, which figure prominently in the overall work left by Marcel Pagnol, and whose name is now borne by a popular hiking trail.

Saint-Julien, Saint-Barnabé, Montolivet, les Trois-Lucs: these village centers in the east, which were once rural and where vines and olive groves were cultivated, have become havens of peace for many city dwellers who have chosen them as their place of residence. Both for their tranquility and the preservation of a certain Provencal art of living.
