Very comfortable and a special place to unwind.

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property was just as it said on the tin-if better. The kitchen was very well equipped and we managed to work all the French appliances without difficulty. The air con, which we turned on in the evening to provide heat was very efficient. Plenty of hot water, lovely shower and the terrace was wonderful. Even in early March we were able to have every breakfast and lunch on the terrace, or out and about. Alan was very attentive and although he lives on site was never intrusive. He checked that all was OK half way through our stay.

Cassis was a bit of a disappointment. The roads are narrow and quite complicated to find your way around. Parking was not easy and we used a small multi storey car on one occasion. At the weekend it became extremely busy with huge numbers of motor bikes and cyclists. Having said that the Provencal market was lovely-it even had a skating rink! In season these issues could easily be avoided by using the shuttle bus service which stops outside the gite. It is too far to walk in to Cassis and the accomodation is up a very steep hill. This does mean the views are stupendous. We walked directly from the apartment onto a well marked footpath and other walks along the Grande Randonnes are not far away by car. The train station at Cassis is only 5 minutes drive away so we used trains to get us to Marseille, La Ciotat and Bandol. The latter was a very nice laid back town with lovely squares and restaurants along the marina. Nothing better than moules et frites on a pavement cafe in the sun!

We came back having had one of the most relaxing holidays ever. We would thoroughly recommend it. We will be back.

Lovely apartment with terrace in Provencal style

  • 5 of 5

The description of the apartment corresponded perfectly with what we found.

Not in the center of Cassis but not so far from it, A very quite position and a great view of the sea from the terrace. This last was great at breakfat or dinner time.

Perfect for those seeking a base for touring between Marseille, the creeks, the Provence or the Camargue.

Both the owner by emails or phone and the manager on place provided a kind support.

We were four people (parentes and children) and we would recommend this apartment to other travellers.

Lovely retreat

  • 5 of 5

This lovely appartment with a fantastic view is the perfect setting for a quiet gettaway, whether that be with friends or a romantic break. The house is fully equipped with a great Kitchen fully stocked with utensiles (so bring along ingredients), comfly living room and and small but cosy bedroom. I'd fully recommend bring a laptop to take advantage of the free wi-fi in order to better plan any day/night trips.

The owener - Alan and his daugther and Son in-law were fantastic during our stay. We unfortunately had our hire car broken in whilst out on a scenic drive near La Ciotat and my girlfirend lost quite a few valuable possesions. Alan and his family offered ample support even provided transalations to the Police which we are mostgreatful for. Don't let this unfortunate incident deter you from visiting though. A little extra viginlance if you plan to hire a car is all that is required and do not whether car is looked or not, leave anything in the car when parked on any of the scenic drives.

Anyone planning to stay should take time to chat to Alan. He has losts of great advise on where to go and what to do!

With the exceptional of the car break-in it was a fantastic holiday which was very relaxing occupied with good beaches, great food, scenic drives & walks and friendly locals which was supported by a fantastic base (this little cosy appartment with a fantastic view).

A great find in Cassis

  • 5 of 5

We were really sorry when our stay at La Romarine came to an end. The apartment has an exceptionally nice ambiance with the advantage of a private garden and appealing views of the sea. You look down to the water from the height of the terraces from three rooms in the apartment and the view from the bedroom, where the sea is framed by French shutters, is particularly impressive.

Apart from enjoying La Romarine as a comfortable base from which to explore Cassis, we thought its practical advantages were outstanding. It is very spacious, generously equipped, well designed and has good quality Internet access. The assistance provided to us by the owner was fantastic and we really appreciated his thoughtfulness. We would be very interested in returning to La Romarine for a holiday in the future. On a general note there is much to explore in and around Cassis and if you want to take the challenge out of wayfinding, a navigation device is helpful.

Très bien

  • 4 of 5

4 jours (seulement) passés à Cassis et environs en couple.

Arrivée possible dès 13H30 pour profiter d'une 1/2 journée supplémentaire sur place une fois installés.

Alan : discrétion et gentillesse le caractérisent.

La location : très bien équipée, avec vue très appréciable sur la Grande Bleue de la petite terrasse. Possibilité de garer le véhicule (indispensable) dans la propriété (avec quelques manœuvres). Appréciable...

Séjour très agréable avec beau temps et douceur.

Nous avons aimé.

La Romarine is perched on a hill overlooking the village of Cassis and the Mediterranean. It is ideally located for easy access to the countless delights awaiting the visitor to Provence such as the Camargue with its flamingos, wild bulls and horses, the medieval walled city of Aigues Mortes and the town of Arles with its long Roman and Medieval history. Provence was Rome's back yard and still has many of the best preserved Roman remains and functioning buildings, and there are many charming medieval towns and perched villages. The sheer beauty of nature in Provence, the lavender fields and hills of Haute Provence behind the bustling coastal strip along the Côte d'Azur between Cassis and Monaco will not fail to please nature lovers. Despite the proximity of the 2600-year old city of Marseille, hikers and ramblers will find enough spectacular natural beauty nearby, such as the Calanques of Cassis, the Aix-en-Provence hinterland, Jean de Florette's Aubagne, to keep them busy for weeks.

Other Activities: canoe, kayak
