The perfect Cassis getaway
Submitted: October 30, 2012

This clean, spacious, sunny, quiet condo overlooking the Cassis harbor is absolutely delightful. The large, bright living room -- and large deck on the front -- look out onto the sea, the village below and the castle on the hilltop. It's the perfect spot to settle in with a glass of wine and watch the setting sun over the hills surrounding this beautiful Mediterranean village. The condo itself is clean, secure, well-equipped, and a wonderful location from which to explore Cassis, neighboring seaside villages, vineyards and the gorgeous calanques. The owner is wonderful to deal with, extremely well-organized, and eager to help you make the most of your stay in Cassis. We appreciated his very detailed instructions, tourist information, grocery-shopping details, and restaurant recommendations -- not to mention a wealth of maps and tourist books in the condo. He takes care of every detail, from the welcoming bottle of chilled Cassis wine (and bottled water) in the refrigerator upon arrival to the easy checkout process (and quick return of the security deposit).
The steps up and down the steep hillside could be challenging for some, but the city has parking lots nearby with very inexpensive shuttles -- and taxis at night. If you're not in a hurry, the short walk downtown and back is exhilarating. If walking is difficult for you, the condo has elevators and plenty of parking by the front door.
We highly recommend staying in this condo, whether you're a honeymooning couple, a family, or a couple of seniors who just want to relax and soak in the Provence atmosphere.
