Overview

Marseille area Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Double bedroom, living room with sofa bed, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4.

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.

Ideal location to explore Cassis

  • 4 of 5

Nice clean apartment with Wi-Fi and only a 5 min walk from the harbour.

Peaceful and the view from balcony is good, ok the tree blocks some of it but the view of the mountain etc kind of makes up for this and its a reasonably private place to relax. The on site parking is also a bonus as you soon appreciate the lack of parking offered by other properties as you wander round Cassis.

Cassis offers an excellent selection of bars and restaurants, even the most expensive are reasonably priced, highlight was Fish Bouillabaisse at Bonaparte's

The owner (Annika) was extremely helpful and Victor did everything as promised.

Got to say would be 5 star if Annika can find a way to trim the tree, but having said that its still a cracking place to stay and we would recommend it.

Wonderful break in fine apartment

  • 4 of 5

Lilas is ideally located in central Cassis close to the harbour. It has great views across to the sea, the church and the 'chateau on the hill'

It provides comfortable accommodation with its own parking

Cassis is a wonderful, self contained small town with lots of opportunities for days on the beach, walking, climbing, sailing, boat trips along the Callanques, fishing, diving etc etc.

It's local rail station - just a short trip on the shuttle bus from near the Casino - has good links to Marseilles, Aix and other local towns along the coast - though there's really no need to leave the town

The Wednesday market is a joy and the local supermarkets are more than adequate

There are many excellent local restaurants and the local whites and rosés are exceptional - though expensive

All in all a lovely break in a lovely place!

An oasis in Cassis

  • 4 of 5

Smooth access and departure with the help of Victor. Very comfortable, with great views of sea, cliff and church (slightly obscured by trees).

We had a great 3 nights at the apartment and would recommend it without reservation.

The apartment is very convenient to everything.

  • 4 of 5

While the stay was enjoyable the apartment is quite dated and trees have almost blocked the view. Noise from scooters roaring past in the evening was also annoying . But the apartment was as advertised and overall we enjoyed our stay.

Great Location nice and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Everything required was available, great little balcony with sun for most of the day. Very close to the harbour where most of the restaurants can be found. Parking in Cassis can be very difficult at times, this apartment has it's own private parking - what a bonus

A very clean and attractive apartment.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has everything a guest could want for, including a fantastic view over the Mediterranean and high cliffs surrounding.

It is indeed just a few minutes walking to the harbor, which is the center and main attraction of the town.

And all the necessary shops are only a few steps away.

The one and only negative was the noise of the many scooters around.

Victor Parsons and his wife are there to take immediate action if something is needed.

A perfect getaway from home!!

The Calanques, a national park, are Provencal fjords with crystal clear green water. Framed by white limestone cliffs and the deep blue of the ocean, secret beaches and coves await discovery. Catch a boat from the port (they leave every half hour) and hop off in a Calanques where you can enjoy a picnic, the sun and a spot of diving or snorkelling. A renowned diving area, complete with Roman wrecks, lies half an hour's boat ride out to sea. Alternatively you may prefer to take advantage of the world famous rock climbing nearby or just enjoy a peaceful stroll along the water's edge.

Cassis produces a delicious white wine, the result of a long tradition of wine making. Many of the local Chateaux welcome visitors and offer free wine tasting.

Other enjoyable days out include visits to Marseille or Aix-en-Provence where music and dance festivals take place.

Other Activities: Canoeing, Kayaking.
