The ancient fishing port of Cassis is now a popular seaside resort, marrying its historic architecture with a flush of modern restaurants and boutique hotels, but the town’s most unique selling point is its location. Set beneath the towering white limestone cliffs of the Cap Canaille – France’s highest cliff – and surrounded by ‘calanques’, a series of sheltered inlets, home to the region’s renowned white Cassis stone quarries.
It’s Cassis’ laid back small-town vibe, along with its selection of pristine beaches and the dramatic Castle of Cassis, that makes it a magnet for tourists during the summer months, but the town also draws a steady stream of wine lovers to its surrounding vineyards, celebrated for their historic Cassis wines.
