Cassis self-catering holiday accommodation is found in the Bouches-du-Rhone department of Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur. It’s a town with spectacular natural scenery all around it, thanks in part to the famous Calanques, or fjords, and cliffs along this stretch of coast. From a Cassis villa you could explore these natural wonders, composes of tall limestone cliffs with sheer drops down to the blue Mediterranean Sea. You can take a walk to experience this wonder, or even hire a boat for a different perspective of the cliffs. There are also some lovely beaches within moments of Cassis self-catering apartments. The main one sits on the town’s waterfront and is overlooked by tree-covered limestone cliffs. Within a short drive of Cassis self-catering villas are a number of important destinations. Marseille is only 30 minutes away by car and boasts a lovely old port, in which there’s still an important fishing industry. You could also come here from an apartment in Cassis to see the old Roman docks, with remnants dating as far back as Phoenician times. Elsewhere Aix en Provence is a great place to soak up a traditionally Pronvencal atmosphere, in a lovely old town known for its picturesque fountains and 17th Century architecture. The best day to come here from a Cassis self-catering holiday rental would be Saturday, when the town hosts its largest weekly market.
Weather Cassis self-catering holiday accommodation is found in a region of France that gets more sunshine and warmer temperatures than any other part of the country. There’s beach weather here for as many as six months of the year, and winters are mild.
