Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Cassis, France your home away from home

The ancient fishing port of Cassis, France, was rebuilt in the 18th century, resulting in a fantastic mix of old and new. The prettiest part of the town, the harbour, is a wonderful place to walk, sit in a water side café and watch the artists capturing the scene. The superb access to the Massif des Calanques is a sporting dream, and the famous wines produced in Cassis make relaxing in the evening, overlooking the coast an irresistible experience during your Provence holidays.

Things to do in Cassis, France

Cassis has a charming little beach to enjoy during the long summer months. Found beside the port, Cassis beach consists of fine, golden sands, and although it is not a huge beach, there are plenty of little beaches to the east and west of the village to discover. Just to the west of the harbour lies an enormous rock shelf which slopes into the sea, and has become hugely popular as a nudist ‘beach’.

The facilities for self catering, local markets and supermarkets were great, and I counted 17 different restaurants just from the balcony! It really is a magical place. It would have been helpful to have a little more written information about the property.

While we spoke little French and Rene spoke little English we managed to understand each other. We both recommend Rene's apartment, it's the best, you can watch the dawn unfold, the sun set, and the castle light up, what's not to like!
