Spaces for Unforgettable Celebrations in Marseille
Lying on the Mediterranean coast surrounded by stunning Provençal countryside, the vibrant city of Marseille is one of the French Riviera’s most exciting destinations. A bustling city centre set against the sparkling background of the Mediterranean, Marseille is the oldest city in France offering visitors a cosmopolitan blend of history and culture plus some of the most glorious stretches of sandy beach you’ll find anywhere on the French Riviera.
From the bustling bars and cafés of the Cours Julien to the hip boutiques of La Joliette or the beautiful gardens of the Palais du Pharo with their sweeping views over Marseille’s Old Town, each of Marseille’s 16 arrondissements has a charm all its own. While the Old Port with its traditional fish market and colourful wooden boats might be the heart of the city, those in search of a more relaxed experience will enjoy the picturesque scenery and laid back atmosphere of Marseille’s beachfront areas.

NATIVE SPACES SOLUTION: This beautiful château with calm Provencal atmosphere situated amidst vineyard and history, is ideal for a team-building party weekend to celebrate the end of the year.
