In June 2011 we stayed very comfortably at L'Escale, and in January 2012 we booked again by email for a visit in July 2012. Our reservation was confirmed by email. The day before our booking began, I telephoned M. Vonblon to confirm our time of arrival. He appeared to have no knowledge of us, and no record of our booking....

Honestly, I don't understand the negative reviews. This is a charming house. The owners are gracious. Our room was clean and very comfortable .. (we had the CAP room) and it felt bigger then most of the photos we had seen so i'll attach some photos of my own. We had no trouble parking just in front of the house...

We thoroughly enjoyed L'escale. Valerie was very gracious, breakfast was perfect and ample. Our room looked out over the bay to the towering cliff of Cap Canaille. A short walk home from the town, much appreciated after wonderful dinners at restaurants recommended by Valerie. Two friendly dogs, well behaved added to the good feel of L'escale. Plus free on street...

We've traveled for 7 days in the region and stayed at 3 places. We've stayed at L'escale for the last 2 nights. We've booked this B&B because of the photos in the website (gorgeous!) so we didn't check tripadvisor either. I have to say, do your research and do not decide/judge based on the cover of the book. We've have...

L'Escale is slightly outside of the centre of Cassis but is an easy and pleasant stroll away. The view of le Cap Canaille is spectacular and makes for a wonderful place to eat breakfast and to relax into the evening and night. Valerie is a very welcoming hostess and Julien's breakfast's provide a wide variety to suit everyone and to...

We called l'Escale when planning a last-minute, spontaneous week-end in the South - and it was one of the best week-end get-aways I experienced in the South of France! The host kindly proposed to rent us the suite for the price of the regular room, given that it was not booked anyway. The place was very beautifully decorated and felt...

From the moment we arrived, Julien and Valerie made us feel very welcome. They were both charming and helpful hosts, offering us a glass of wine upon arrival, helping us with our bags and giving us some advice on where to go out for dinner, hiking and boat trips. We stayed in the "Arcades" room which boasts amazing sea views...

From the moment we arrived until not wanting to leave 4 days later, the couple running this "chambre d'hôtes" in their familial home were the most helpful, warm, accommodating of hosts. Example: though we'd been warned about morning sun on the breakfast balcony (which happens to have one of the most extraordinary views on the Mediterranean and Cap Canaille cliff),...

We had two nights here at the very end of our three weeks in France, and this was our favourite place of anywhere we'd stayed. We had a truly gorgeous room, and the breakfast was the best. Host Julien made us pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, wonderful bread and pastries, a fruit salad, yogurt: the works! The room was simply, but...
