In recent years, the luxury real estate market in Marseille has experienced significant growth. The city has revitalized its high-end property offerings and improved its image, now boasting numerous sought-after neighborhoods where living is a pleasure. Buyers appreciate the quality of the luxury apartments and magnificent villas available for sale, as well as their privileged location at the heart of the region's most beautiful landscapes.
The 7th arrondissement of Marseille is a highly coveted area with many advantages. Located by the sea, in the wake of Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde, it offers splendid views of the Mediterranean and the beautiful sunset that illuminates the Frioul Islands in the evening. The arrondissement includes some of Marseille's most sought-after neighborhoods. Buyers can enjoy various typical Provençal atmospheres just minutes from the Old Port: a fishing village near Vallon des Auffes, a livelier ambiance around Endoume, or a calm and residential setting in Roucas Blanc and near the Corniche Kennedy. The luxury real estate in this arrondissement reflects this diversity, with renovated mansions standing alongside luxurious contemporary villas and high-end secure residences.
The 8th arrondissement of Marseille is one of the most sought-after areas for luxury real estate. Located in the southern part of the city center, it includes many iconic places, including Parc Borély, the Prado beaches, and the brutalist-style housing unit designed by Le Corbusier. Marseille's 8th arrondissement is both dynamic and residential, encompassing prestigious neighborhoods such as Perier and Saint-Giniez, as well as the Pointe-Rouge and Carré d'Or areas. Further south, there is also the small port of Les Goudes, nestled in the spectacular setting of the Calanques. The chic neighborhoods in this arrondissement offer numerous upscale residences on beautiful wide avenues, as well as luxurious villas and apartments with panoramic views of the coast or the splendors of the Phocaean city.
Marseille's 9th arrondissement is the largest in the city. Located southeast of the municipality, it is particularly appreciated for its proximity to many natural areas, including the Calanques of Sormiou and Morgiou. Here, buyers looking for calm and preserved areas often find what they're looking for in the heart of the neighborhoods of Mazargues and Sainte-Marguerite, which have preserved an authentic Provençal village spirit. Families are often attracted by the presence of several renowned schools and universities.
The residential neighborhoods of Marseille's 12th arrondissement are a true haven of peace for its residents. Once covered with vineyards and olive groves, this territory nestled on a hill brings joy to buyers seeking the tranquility and conviviality of a Provençal village. Thanks to its privileged location, numerous green spaces, and proximity to the city center, the arrondissement offers a remarkable quality of life.
The renowned neighborhood of the Old Port and its surroundings make up the downtown area. As the beating heart of the city, these places symbolize more than any other the typical and welcoming way of life of Marseille. The elegant period buildings, recently renovated, as well as the buildings designed by the famous architect Fernand Pouillon, are now highly sought after by discerning clientele in search of high-end properties, particularly in the area of the MUCEM.
Marseille's 6th arrondissement now boasts the city's most prestigious avenues (Avenue du Prado, Rue du Paradis, and Rue de Breteuil). Whether residential or trendy, depending on the neighborhood, this area is the heart of the Haussmannian architecture of the Phocaean city. Its beautiful stone buildings with wrought iron balconies offer spacious family apartments, while residences located in steep alleys often provide a view of the sea. Well-served by transportation, the 6th arrondissement strongly appeals to young professionals in search of trendy places and families looking for old apartments with beautiful volumes.
Marseille's fourth arrondissement is an urban but residential area that offers a high quality of life for its residents. Located in the heart of the city, it revolves around the green spaces of Parc Longchamp, which includes the city's Museum of Natural History, as well as the Fine Arts Museum and the Palais Longchamp.

In recent years, Marseille has undergone a profound urban transformation. This transformation, driven by the restructuring of the city center, the development of the Corniche Kennedy, and the revitalization of the cultural offerings, has increased the attractiveness of the real estate market. Today, the Phocaean city benefits from this enthusiasm and welcomes new residents who are captivated by the wonders of its natural heritage and its many advantages.
Marseille was long criticized for its lack of infrastructure, but in recent years, it has successfully turned the tide. Its international airport (Marseille-Provence) is now one of the busiest in France, while its high-speed train line connects to Paris in 3 hours from Saint-Charles Station, and its public transportation network has been modernized. In terms of education, the city has numerous renowned high schools and higher education institutions (Ecole/Lycée de Provence, Ecole Sainte-Anne, Ecole Sainte-Trinité, Lycée Lacordaire, Lycée Saint Joseph-les-Maristes, Lycée Thiers, etc.). Several companies also have their headquarters in the region, including CMA CGM (the world's third-largest shipping company), Airbus Helicopters, Pernod Ricard, luxury cruises from Ponant, Haribo, Richardson, ONET, and Sodexo.
Since being named European Capital of Culture in 2013, Marseille has experienced a cultural renaissance. Numerous museums, theaters (including the MUCEM), restaurants, and cultural venues have emerged and contribute to the city's new vitality.
Marseille's newfound popularity has led to an increase in real estate prices. This dynamism is currently very promising for buyers and investors. In the span of a year (from 2021 to 2022), the market has seen a price increase of 11% (33% over 5 years). However, property prices are still three times lower than in Paris, which attracts a significant number of young professionals, particularly enticed by Marseille's quality of life and the opportunities offered by the region's development.
