Guestbook comments from the owner

Although we had to cancel our reservation, we were very pleased with the registration process. Mr. Autran is very professional, prompt and well-organized. We found it easy to get information, receive and sign the contract, and submit our deposit. Upon making a change in our plans, Mr. Autran promptly returned our deposit check as stated in the rental contract. We are hopeful to be able to lease Mr. Autran's property at another time.

This apartment is fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed a two-week vacation in the lovely resort town of Cassis, France staying in Roland's perfectly situated apartment just above the main part of the city. I have mentioned this before, but Roland's apartment is one place where the reality is better than the photos. The photos do not convey the beauty and elegance of the apartment. Though this was not our first stay in Roland's apartment, it was the first time for our grown children to join us. They loved it, both the apartment and the lovely village of Cassis. The view is breath-taking and the apartment amazingly well-kept, clean and orderly. Our needs were attended to quickly and efficiently. We filled all bedrooms but the apartment did not seem crowded. The large family room, dining room and balcony allowed everyone plenty of space to spread out and enjoy conversation, dining and lots of laughter. We frequented the markets in Cassis, participated in both hiking and boating excursions during the day, and enjoyed informal markets, concerts and pick-up bands staged throughout the town in the evening. Cassis is a perfect vacation spot and staying in Roland's apartment makes one feel as though they are more than a visitor, but perhaps a lifelong resident of this intimate coastal port.

Top of the line ocean-view Cassis apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was what we expected and beyond - the view of the ocean and of Cassis was exceptional (beyond the picture). The apartment was well kept and clean, with responsive concierge service. The owner (Roland Autran)was very cordial and very responsive to all of our queries - provided us very comprehensive information on all aspects of the apartment. For a family of five, this was a very comfortable place with lots to do - hiking, biking, boating, beach and pool, day-trips in the Provence region. We would definitely recommend this apartment and Cassis to friends and relatives. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Splendid, just splendid

  • 5 of 5

my wife and I were here for a month and loved every minute of it. the pictures on line are right on; well furnished with a well stocked kitchen. Great views of the small fishing village that was an easy walk; down at least. We explored most of Provance from here. Highly recommended

Lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

A lovely apartment in a quiet residential complex. Incredibly well equipped with everything you need, we are a family of 5 and there was plenty of space. The swimming pool is great and it was never overly busy, the children loved the diving board! We think it is important to mention that the apartment could be a challenging walk to town and back for some people as Cassis is incredibly hilly. Driving down isn't an option in high season as parking is very difficult. Cassis is buzzing and we loved the beach. Roland is totally professional and responded quickly to any queries. Thank you

fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant holiday in Cassis. The location of the apartment was ideal. A short walk down to the beautiful harbour of Cassis! The appartment had everything we needed and plenty of room for our family of five (including three teenagers !). The pool was perfect to cool down on a hot July day. Roland rang us on arrival and gave us some tips of things to do and places to eat. Make sure you read through his tips and recommendations! You will be glad you did if you eat at some the restraunts he mentions.

Cassis is located near Marseille (a 7th BC Phocean colony) in Provence. You will find Aix and Avignon nearby where summer music and dance festivals are held. Cassis is surrounded by 'The Calanques', a national park, white cliffs around fingers of deep blue water. The Calanques are a perfect place to hike and have an afternoon picnic and bath in a secluded cove. Cassis produces a well known and delicious white wine. Also, twice a week you can go in the center of town to the local outside market for fresh produces. Most week-end, there are art expositions by local artists: painting, pottery. This beautiful apartment overlook the little harbor, the view is gorgeous.

If you are interested with hiking, please let me know because I have documented a number of very interesting hikes.
