Our cozy apt has French red tiles typical of southern France and a balcony with a view on sunbathed rooftops. One bedroom and a very comfortable pull out couch, for 4 guests total. The apt is central next to Cours Julien and 15min walk from the Vieux Port.
My neighborhood could be considered the hipster or bobo district, with lots of new restaurants opening up and fun bars. It's also in the city center, and a short walk from everything.
My house is a 5 min walk from the metro and 2 or 3 stops away from all tourist locations.
