Cassis apartment description

Cassis is an unspoiled and colorful, though luxurious, old fishing port with all the amenities: the main beach, shopping, and delicious restaurants adjacent to it, all flow from one to the other. Many cafes face the port with no traffic permitted to block your view, an unusual advantage, while you order a café crème and pain au chocolat or croissant – a glass of wine or beer with a beautiful salad - mussels & frites, a croque monsieur, crepes or whatever your heart desires from friendly locals happy to see you. Maybe you will decide on a pastry instead from the famous patisserie at the port or perhaps you will buy something from the fishermen, that day’s catch, to take home instead. Of course, with a fresh baguette!

Tour boats regularly leave the harbor for sightseeing in the world famous Calanques. Sailboats, paddle boats, and kayaks are available for rent during the summer
months. The promenade by the sea is a delightful way to view the town from another perspective or to visit the Visitors Center. A Casino is nearby in the

Behind the port in the rest of this carefully preserved village, cobblestoned streets meander past charming squares, parks with fountains, shops with everything you need and wonderful things with which you will fall in love even though you may not need them. A colorful market fills the main square and some streets twice a week. Delicious and delightful restaurants of all kinds are available on every street within the village, as well as close-by near other beaches and the sea.

This bright, spacious, and recently renovated 3 bedroom apartment (with large, fully equipped eat-in kitchen) is located closest to the Port, main Beach, Restaurants, and Shops of most VRBO listings for Cassis! It is a short 5 minute walk downhill, and perhaps a 10 minute walk to return, not a long walk or drive up a steep hill, as are so many of the rental properties. But if you want to use a car, you will also have your own designated parking space – and visitors’ spaces as well.

The complex is tucked away in a quiet spot, with a gated entry, but with grocery, presse, and some other shops even closer than the 5 minute walk to the port.

This comfortable apartment has a fully equipped kitchen, including a large refrigerator, dishwasher, washer, and dryer. There is an ipod compatible hook-up, high speed Internet WIFI, and Satellite TV with CNN showing in English. There is also a telephone for FREE landline calls within France, as well as to the US, Canada, and Western Europe.

There are 3 bedrooms: one with a queen-size bed, the second with a double bed, and another with twin beds. Linens and towels are provided. Both baths are new: one with tub/shower and sink, the other with toilet and small sink. The dining area table seats six to eight. The living room is large and comfortable. All rooms have French windows for light, air, and charm. There are books and lists of recommended day trips, restaurants, doctors, pharmacists, dentists, and other important information. There is a small balcony for morning coffee.

Please call or email me for the address of our other website where you will find more photos of the apartment, as well as of Cassis itself. Please read our guest reviews to see how much people enjoy our apartment.

In Cassis you will be perfectly located in the south of France, for tastings at the surrounding wineries, and for visits to perched villages, as well as for day trips to wonderful cities like nearby Aix en Provence & Marseilles (45minutes). Numerous other towns are within one hour for short day trips. Avignon, Ch du Pape, and all the charming towns around them and the Nice and Cannes resorts, are within 2 hrs drive. And Cassis is easily accessible to other areas of France and neighboring countries as well. (Only 2 ½ hrs. drive to the Italian border and a 5 hrs. drive to Barcelona, Spain!)

Many of our renters have returned 2/3/4 + times. To have visited Cassis and stayed in this apartment is to love it!
