"He who has seen Paris and not Cassis has seen nothing", said Frédéric Mistral, a successful Provençal writer. Nestled in a spot of natural beauty, featuring pine forests, cliffs of ochre and white rock, and vineyards that stretch across flat plains and slopes right to the sea, Cassis is shielded by two natural landmarks: Cap Canaille (the highest sea cliffs in Europe), which blazes at sunset when the Mistral wind blows, and the white limestone Calanques.
This small fishing port, known throughout the world for its cliffs which plunge into the sea and for its white wine, gives visitors a taste of the dolce vita. Narrow alleys, elegant shops, squares lined with pretty colourful houses reflected in the harbour water, and restaurants with welcoming terraces are the hallmark of Cassis. The small beaches sheltered by Cap Canaille complete this idyllic picture.
Our hotel is just a few kilometres away from this seaside paradise. Make the most of the typical activities on offer in this very popular tourist destination, then enjoy the peace and quiet at Corniche du Liouquet.
