On the Cote d’Azur in the heart of Provence “Lilas” overlooks this historic fishing town. Beaches, restaurants and the delights of the market square are easy to discover from this central location. Enjoy romantic dinners on the southern balcony-terrace whilst looking out to sea.
There are lovely views of the medieval castle, church and sea. Inviting restaurants and bars spill out onto the streets surrounding the port the market square which are close to a safe, sandy beach. All this is within five minutes' walking distance from the apartment through Cassis’ narrow cobbled streets.
The apartment is on the second floor of a residential building surrounded by shady palm trees and pines. Situated in the town centre, 300m from the nearest beach and 200m from the port, everything is withing easy walking distance. There is also a butcher, baker, pharmacy and newsagent just across the road, close to a convenient car park.
Hello from the owner: I recently fell in love with Cassis whilst on a rock climbing trip. Cassis is a gem; it is a classic, old, Mediterranean fishing village steeped in history and packed with wonderful restaurants and shops. The port and the promenade is an eclectic mix of boats, yachts, bars, cafes and restaurants.
Spectacular hidden coves (les Calanques) are just a boat-ride away. The colourful market comes to the village square twice a week. The scene is just as you imagine....olives, cheeses, honey, fruit and vegetables together with that essential bustle of people.
Moreover Cassis is one of the truly unspoilt parts of the Cote d’Azur. Thanks to the national park, medieval castle and the famous vineyards, property developers have been kept out and Cassis has retained its 16th and 18th century architecture.
Victor Parsons is a truly charming and helpful gentleman who will meet and look after you during your stay. I hope I have drawn you a full and accurate picture of what Cassis has to offer.
