Guesthouse, small hostel


La “Cigale et la Fourmi” is situated in the heart of the village of Mazargues, just 15 minutes from Marseille‘s city centre.

The guesthouse is within a stone’s throw of the Gineste, coastal road linking Marseille and Cassis and is next to the Calanques, neighbouring the Calanques of Sormiou.

The guesthouse is divided into fully furnished individual bedrooms and apartments with a common laundry room at guests’ disposal. Guests are entirely independent in a convivial and friendly environment. Your host, Jean, attends to helping you enjoy the various aspects and advantages of the guesthouse.

When you arrive at “La Cigale et la Fourmi”, you will be given an access code allowing you to come and go as you please. With no imposed schedule, guests determine the pace of their vacation…

No matter what size, each tastefully decorated room offers a comfortable setting with sunny accents of Provence. The harmonious use of space and colour gives each bedroom a style of its own. Depending on the terms of your rental, for either studios or a bedroom, you may also have cooking facilities.


The neighbourhood

Use the arrows at the top left corner to change the view and click on the arrows in the middle of the street to move.
Google has made some faults, so it’s a little complicated to go to the main street of Mazargues. First, turn around and go down all to the end of rue Théophile Boudier. Turn right and go down the rue de la Tour (here, in reality you could go straight on, but for now we’ll make a little detour). Turn left into the rue Sébastien Marcaggi and then take the next at the right. Now you’re on rue Emile Zola, the main street of our neighbourhood, were you can buy groceries, fresh fruits and vegetables, and, of course, lots of cheese and wine.
