Hotels in Cassis
The writer Federique Mistral once said: 'He who has seen Paris but not Cassis can say, I haven't seen anything.' He had good reason for this assertion: while the capital may offer cosmopolitan bustle and a certain famous tower, it pales in comparison to the stunning natural landscapes of Cassis and the surrounding area. Situated in the Provence region less than 15 miles away from Marseille, this scenic coastal settlement will take your breath away with its wild coastal beauty and rich local culture.
The best scenery the south of France has to offer
Cassis itself is a charming seaside town, but what truly sets it apart is its surrounding environment. Most striking, perhaps is the Massifs des Calanques. This spectacular series of inlets stretches from Cassis to Marseille, with its highest point at Mont Puget. You may find yourself spending an entire day just soaking in the atmosphere, such is the awe-inspiring grandeur of this natural rock formation. It is also possible to travel to the Calanques by boat – be sure to make enquiries in the town.
As if the Calanques weren't enough, Cassis offers another sight in the form of the Cap Canaille
headland. This is the highest sea cliff in the whole of France, and is accessible by road. Well worth the trip out of town.
An historic trading route
Cassis has traditionally been at the centre of Mediterranean trade routes, which is hardly surprising considering its coastal positioning. Its history stretches back to Roman times, when Emperor Antoninus Pius designated it as part of the empire's maritime route. The town really came into its own, however, during the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century. During this period, it became well-known for its Stone of Cassis, a local stone which would eventually provide the base for the Statue of Liberty in New York.
Other local industries which have developed have been more focused on the production of local goods, including olive oil and wine.
Culinary delights and restful slumber
Speaking of local delicacies, the town is famous for its wines. Not to be confused with crème de cassis, which is produced in Burgundy, Cassis produces some of the finest white wines of the Provençal region. If you would like to try a sample, why not pay a visit to the Clos Sainte Magdeleine? This authentic winery offers some truly spectacular views to enjoy with your glass of white (or rosé).
Cassis hotels reflect the intimate nature of the town, with a nevertheless varied selection on offer. The Jardin d'Emile offers a rustic Provence experience, while the family-run Hotel de France Maguy is ideally situated close to the town centre.
