It does not have the same glamour and large yachts as St. Tropez. However it is probably more like what that port was like prior to Brigitte Bardot!
It is a great place to go to for the day or as an overnight short trip.We found a great place to stay there,
Chez Nino with windows overlooking the port. We had the 2 windows at the top of the red part, which one enters from a small cobbled street behind!
It has a fantastic Michelin rated restaurant! Great food, good choice of local Cassis wines and views! We can definitely recommend the Domaine du Paternel wines which we discovered there!
Ask for a table at the window (outdoors in summer months)!!
The rooms are simple but comfortable.
And the night-time view from our room was superb!!
This is to be recommended for its fantastic food and also its location and views.
It has 2 restaurants.... the very expensive one and the (slightly!) less formal part with a great lunchtime menu at a very reasonable price! We have eaten at both and can definitely recommend both, although the expensive part is very expensive!! But worth it as one gets to sit outside and admire the view/ambience.
And no visit to Cassis would be complete without visiting the Calanques.
