Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Cassis - The Lighthouse

2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sea views, close to beach & fishing port, private parking

On the Cote d'Azur in the heart of Provence 'The Lighthouse' overlooks this romantic fishing port. Beaches, restaurants and the delights of the market square are easy to discover from this central location.

Here you can have fun cooking while looking out to sea or enjoy relaxing on the southern balcony. Exceptional views of the azure blue sea lead to the main beach that is sandy and safe. It is an uplifting experience to sit and watch the waves crash against the Lighthouse on a stormy day or watch the sunlight play on the Cap Canille, Frances highest sea cliff.

Inviting restaurants and bars that spill out onto the streets surround the market square. All this is a convenient three-minute walk away, around a classic Mediterranean port.

Large windows and high ceilings give this newly renovated apartment a light and airy feel. From the open plan granite kitchen, to the Roman tiled bathroom, all is well equipped and convenient.

The main bedroom has a large double bed, two reading lights on bed side tables,full mirror and chest of draws and over looks a large terrace. The second bedroom has a full sized bunk bed, two bed side lights, mirror and wardrobe.

There is free private parking and wifi.

There is a large northern terrace overlooking terracota roof tops and Mediterranean trees.

About Anthony Franklin

I am a Mountain Guide and take people climbing and off piste skiing all over the Alps. My family and I love sailing, rock climbing and cooking.

Anthony Franklin purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Anthony Franklin chose Cassis

The Calanques, lime stone fjords, are a national park in between Cassis and Marseille, considered by the French as one of the most beautiful places in the world. White lime stone cliffs fall into clear emerald green seas, through which the sandy deeps and passing fish can be seen. Sunsets of extraordinary beauty make a dazzling contrast with the blue of the high seas and the green and white of the coast.

I first got to know Cassis after climbing and sailing in the Calanques. Thirsty after a long climb or cold and wet after sailing we would hole up in a friendly bar and drink local wine or cool beers.

After several years I decided to come and buy and was lucky enough to find the Lighthouse. We love it and think it a very special place. I'm sure you will too.

What makes this apartment unique

The Lighthouse is exceptional because of a view that will truly take your breath away. We love cooking while looking out to sea and just relaxing and listening to the sea, which lulls you into peaceful harmony.

Great Apartment with Great Views

  • 5 out of 5
We spend just 4 wonderful days in Cassis and hope to return again someday. The apartment was roomy, clean, had spectacule views, and was in a great location. We enjoyed walking around the quient little town and the boat ride we took to the Calanques (cliffs). The restaurants were very good. We liked the little Pizza place below and to the right of the apartment as well as Bonaparts (spelling?) wonderful and fresh seafood. The pastries and gelatto were great. We also loved the market on Wed and Fridays. Really nice gifts at good prices. And again, the apartment was so awesome! We really loved it and Cassis!

Carless and loving it!

  • 5 out of 5
The Lighthouse apartment was thoroughly enjoyable. This is my fourth day home and what I miss most, with the exception of the views, is the convenience of living without a car. For breakfast I would start coffee then walk down to the boulangerie for freshly baked croissants. During the day we would walk around the harbor or town square checking out the shops and picking up cheese, wine and fruit (great strawberries) at the grocery. We participated in wine tasting at a wine festival, rode the tourist train, watched a boules match and took a boat ride to the Calanques. In the evenings we walked to various restaurants for dinner and a drink then walked home. Perfect!
Back home I get in my car to do almost everything. Thanks Anthony and Victor for this wonderful experience.

Fantastic Location, Amazing views from the apartment. Loved sitting watching the boats coming and going, especially the luxurious yachts just by our window. The apartment has everything you need. One double bedroom and the second bunk bed room which was large enough for my teenage daughter and friend. We ate out most of the time, but the kitchen had everything you need to cook a meal with a large fridge for those important bottles of wine! Everything is within walking distance, the restaurants, shops, supermarkets and beaches. Great for boat trips and walks to the Calanques, plus lucky enough to be there when the Tour de France passed by! Also within easy reach of Marseille by public transport for a day trip. Great for a holiday without a car and easy to reach by train from the UK if you don't like flying. Victor who looks after the apartment was easy to contact and meet us as agreed. Thanks Anthony, we plan to have a return visit in the future.

We enjoyed two wonderful weeks in the Lighthouse Apartment! We found the apartment excellently located - with magnificent views of the harbor, Cap Canaille and – of course – the lighthouse. Everything you need you can find within easy walking distance. The apartment is cosy, well appointed and has a full kitchen. Anthony was very pleasant and prompt with his e-mail replies and also Victor, the contact person, was very pleasant and most helpful.

We will return next year!

The Lighthouse

  • 5 out of 5
As Victor says, "Cassis is my little corner of paradise".
And Anthony's apt. at Cap Naio certainly fits...
My husband and I have stayed there 6 times over the past 3-4 years. We love it. The apartment is exactly as described, right on the port, and oh, those marvelous views are right there in front of you. It's breathtaking. One doesn't ever have to go out, just sit and watch the fishing boats go in and out, watch the "mayor of the port", a jack russell dog on one of the boats...watch the sunset over the lighthouse...we saw fireworks at the lighthouse one May, and we had the best seats! The apartment has a full kitchen so you can go to the market twice a week, get fish from the man selling it right on the port below you, can't get fresher than that! You can walk along the port at night, or walk to the Calanques and have a picnic. There are many beaches within walking distance. The restaurants are right there on the port. It can be as peaceful or as full of sports/activities as you like. The apartment is comfortable, not fancy, but perfect for two people or even more, there's a second bedroom as well. A lovely piece of paradise.

Breathtaking view and so much to do in Cassis

  • 5 out of 5
We have just spent a week in this beautiful lighthouse apartment in Cassis. Although it is minimal in size it met our needs completely. The view is absolutely spectacular, the location perfect and this gorgeous fishing town oozes beauty both natural and man made. A day spent on a boat in the nearby Calanques was our best day yet in 6 weeks of travel as the scenery is breathtaking and swimming off the back of the boat so exciting and fun.
With three kids the apartment was a little bit small but was certainly made up for in faultless panoramic views of the gorgeous town. This apartment would be perfect for a family with two kids. I would love to stay again and will highly recommend to others.

Cassis is close to Marseille, an ancient Phoenician port, and Aix where music and dance festivals take place.

The Callanques, a national park and marine reserve, www.calanques-parcnational.fr, are Provencal fjords with crystal clear green water, framed by white lime stone cliffs and the deep blue of the ocean, where secret beaches await discovery. It’s easy to catch a boat from Cassis (they leave every half hour) and be dropped off in a Callanques, where it is fun to picnic, dive and sunbathe and then walk back to Cassis or catch the ferry back.

A renowned diving spot with Roman wrecks, preserved flora and fauna is a half hour boat trip out to sea. The Callanques is a world famous rock-climbing site.

Cassis produces a famous white wine the result of a long tradition since 600 BC. Various Chateaux welcome wine lovers and offer free tasting.

The apartment is on the first floor of a residential building 5 minutes walk from both beaches and overlooking the Lighthouse on the waterfront. When the windows are open you can hear the sea in every room. Everything is an easy walk away.
