Mar­seille

French Property News - - Have Your Say -

I was pleased to see Mar­seille be­ing cov­ered in the Oc­to­ber is­sue of FPN. I al­ways hear how Mar­seille is a dirty and dan­ger­ous city (even some of my friends think so!) and the ter­ri­ble at­tack at the St-charles train sta­tion has only deep­ened peo­ple’s mis­trust of it. Al­though these dread­ful at­tacks are sadly be­com­ing more com­mon these days, I think we shouldn’t let them de­ter us from vis­it­ing the places we love.

I have been to Mar­seille many times and am al­ways sur­prised to find new things to see. My lat­est dis­cov­ery was the Mu­seum of Euro­pean and Mediter­ranean Civil­i­sa­tions (MUCEM), a re­ally fab­u­lous mu­seum with a fas­ci­nat­ing ar­chi­tec­ture. Though I wouldn’t want to buy in the city (I’m a real coun­try girl), I’d love to own a home some­where near Mar­seille so that I could dip in and out at leisure. Hay­ley Grant
