I wish I could be in Cassis right now! Go with friends to Cassis and stay in the hostel on top of the hills!
Heaven and Cassis are one in the same. The weather is so perfect that a bit of fog drives people off the beach in droves!
Cassis is a wonderfull village. Way too many tourists in July almost no parking. But if you can stand a walk spend many days if you can. It's quaint, friendly with lots of great food and wine.
This is the Rivieras best kept secret - it's where we all hope to spend our holidays - the Riviera as it used to be - before the mobs arrived. Charming, quaint, picturesque, just perfect in fact - but don't tell too many people, or they'll spoil it for us!
We stumbled into Cassis by advice of fellow travelers and I am still thinking of the beautiful, quaint town years later. I would love to be able to go back in the future. You must go.
Cassis is wonderful, but in the summer very touristy. But when you walk a little bit, you will find beautiful beaches with many people.
I found my way to Cassis ten years ago and have never forgotten the experience.
