Our sunny, inviting apartment occupies the complete second floor of a traditional Cassis building constructed in the early 1900's. It is one minute from the port on a small, quiet street and faces south toward the sea and north toward the hills.
The apartment has a spacious living/dining room with an open kitchen which opens onto a sun-filled balcony large enough for meals or to read and sun-bathe. The apartment is furnished with antiques and original art work and reflects the panache of Southern France. There is a gourmet European kitchen, fully equipped with service for 12, and all conveniences. The living area has a working fireplace, sofa bed (double) and cozy armchairs. The dining table will seat eight guests.
Lofts above the living room and both bedrooms are designed to give guests privacy and room for individual activities. The living room loft is furnished with HD flat screen TV, ADSL internet connection, stereo and CD player with DVD connection to the TV. It can also accommodate additional sleeping. There is a full bathroom (bathtub and shower) and separate water closet. The master bedroom is furnished with a queen bed, has its own balcony and the loft above is an office which is DSL-equipped. The guest bedroom has a double bed and its loft has a single bed. All rooms have French windows, and they are light and airy.
The apartment is elegant, while feeling warm and comfortable, with
a decor that reflects the atmosphere of the sea, hills and vineyards
of this lovely part of Provence. The apartment totals 90 square meters
(970 square feet), so it is comfortable for a family with children
or couples vacationing together. There is extensive documentation provided
for guests to explore the town, the Calanques of Cassis and the surrounding
We have a privileged relationship with the lovely hotel, Le Clos des Aromes, and can arrange meals on their beautiful terrace. Cassis has retained its authentic "fishing village" identity, while being welcoming to European and English-speaking tourists. Just walk to the port in early morning and see the fishermen setting out for the day's catch, and coming back to port to display their offerings!
There are two beaches in town with showers; the boules alley, a children's park and many flavors of gelato two steps away. The town limits car traffic, so strolling is a favorite pastime, along with the obligatory pastis at 5:00 pm. We chose Cassis after many trips to the South because it offers everything--the delicious flavors of Provence, excellent access to other major Provencal sites and cities as well as good air and train connections to Paris, Milan and other European destinations.
