About the Property

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.

Car: Not Necessary

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.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Cassis, France:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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.
