Located in a quiet area of the fishing village of Cassis: 600m from the village, harbor, and main beach; 400m from the Bestouan beach.
5th and last floor of quiet residence with elevator. Exceptional views of the sea and Cap Canaille, the highest maritime cliff in Europe, as well as the Cassis peninsula toward the Calanques National Park. Ample view of the Cap Canaille and its colors changing throughout the day, the sea and Calanques. Lots of sunlight all day and very beautiful sunsets.
Completely renovated fully equipped kitchen, sleeping and entertainment amenities. Private bathroom with shower, toilet, and sink.
Entertainment: large flat screen television with international TV channels, home cinema and high speed wireless Internet.
Parking behind the building. The residence is calm but close to the village and other points of interest such as beaches, vineyards, Cap Canaille and Calanques. This is a great place to explore on foot and by boat.
A lovely Provençal market is held every Wednesday and Friday morning in the town center, in front of City Hall. “Marché paysan” on Saturdays.

Former residents of Cassis, we're happy to rent our apartment in this beautiful area of France to travelers and vacationers for their enjoyment. We live in California part of the year and Cassis part of the year.

Cassis is a very desirable place in Provence. We bought this apartment because it is sunny, pleasant and ideally located within walking distance of the village center, harbor, beaches and hiking areas.
Panoramic view of the sea and Cap Canaille. Unobstructed southwest exposure provides lots of sunlight and beautiful sunsets.
I had the lovely opportunity to visit Cassis in September 2011 for the 1st time. Luckily, I stayed in this magnificent apartment. The view is absolutely breath taking. The local farmers market, florist, grocery store, restaurants and wharf in walking distance.
The apartment itself is immaculately clean, great cooking facilities, including dish washer, washing machine, ironing board and hair dryer! I really enjoyed having a glass of wine and dinner on the balcony. In the evenings watching the beautiful sunset against the calanques was my favorite.
I highly recommend staying here and would definitely return and stay longer than a week!
This was our first visit to Cassis and when we arrived at the apartment we were a bit worried because the outside of the building has some deferred maintenance issues. As soon as the door opened, however, we knew we had made a good choice. The apartment is exactly as it is portrayed in the pictures. It is clean, comfortable, and has an amazing sweeping view of Cap Canaille and the Mediterranean. The walk into town is only about ten minutes (about 15 back as it is uphill!). We had everything we needed and made meals in the apartment using the utensils and cookware provided. We appreciated having a convenient parking space although we walked almost everywhere and only used the car once. We had the added benefit of 70 degree weather at the beginning of November (I know they can't guarantee that!). We would love to return to Cassis and will definitely try to stay at this apartment again. The apartment manager greeted us and showed us around, and the owner was available by telephone to answer questions. The apartment building itself is visible from the village, perched high on the hill and commanding its fabulous view! Both a large and small grocery store are within easy walking distance as well. Thank you for a wonderful experience to help me celebrate my 60th birthday!
My husband and I recently returned from a week long stay at this Cassis apartment. The view is breathtaking! We used this apartment as a hub for taking day trips and it worked out perfectly for the two of us. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. If you are a television watcher, there are many French channels but limited English language ( CNN, BBC, MSNBC). Ms.Anne who is the manager of this apartment was helpful, but limited English, however, helped us with the questions we did have. The owner is also very helpful and "just a phone call away"!
We enjoyed the markets in Cassis and there also is a grocery store in the area but not within walking distance if carrying many parcels/bags.
Waking up every morning to the view of Cap Canille was such a gift!
We stayed in this apartment for two weeks and found it to be very comfortable, modern and ideally located to the ports. The kitchen is suitably stocked with dishes, flatware, and tools. The bedroom is fairly spacious and has a large closet for luggage and clothes. Our stay was during July and even though there is no air conditioning, being on the 5th floor (there is elevator access) ensures a nice breeze through open windows and/or doors. The view from the balcony is stupendous but the balcony is small - comfortable for two. There is a clothes washer but no dryer; the apartment does have a communal laundry line outside on the property, though. A vehicle is preferable as the grocery store is not close and the climb is steep! Parking is limited and difficult during the summer. We found parking on the streets surrounding the building. The ports/beaches are a 10 minute walk downhill and slightly longer for the return (uphill!). This apartment is better suited to two guests rather than three or four, even though there is a pull-out sofa.
The apartment building lobby appears to have no lighting after dark making it unsafe and difficult to navigate through to reach the elevator, however.

This apartment is well situated for staying in Cassis. It is walking distance to Cassis Marina and to a couple of local beaches. The apartment is very well equipped and has everything you need. We stayed in July and found the apartment hot as it does not have air conditioning but there is a fan which made the apartment bearable. The walk down to the beach was a very steep hill but it was not a problem to us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would certainly stay again.
My wife and I enjoyed our stay here and would return. Great well equipped kitchen.
Good parking at the rear, no extra cost. Walk to the beach and village center.
It was central enough that we could drive to LA Coitat in 15 min. where there is another great beach. Aix en Provence is only 40 min away and a fantastic place to shop, eat and enjoy.
We took a day trip to Arms to see the old Roman coliseum and also saw St Remey de Provence plus the old Roman, Baux en Provence.
A clean and well appointed unit. Loved the whole French experience.
A traditional fishing village, Cassis has lots of colorful and bright buildings around the harbor, which is overlooked by a delightful castle. The village is picturesque with an abundance of cafés and restaurants.
Boat trips around the Calanques, which are spectacular, steep Mediterranean fjords of white limestone accessible mainly by boat. Lovely beaches to have a picnic and a swim.
Many wineries. Winemaking interest and activities.
Parc National des Calanques. Château d'If (Frioul Archipelago near Marseille). Stade Vélodrome, 60,000 capacity stadium, home of Olympique de Marseille football club. Musee des Beaux-Arts, Palais Longchamp. Opera de Marseille. Musee de la Marine. Notre Dame de la Garde, Fort Saint Jean.
