cassis or not cassis

Hi and thanks in advance, my second question, itinerary. Am I doing too much? We hear mixed reviews about Cassis, wonder if should skip? (see itinerary below)

Skipping would allow to to spend 2 days in he Brignoles area, where we have family.


coming from Barcelona by car:

Day 1-2: Avignon, Orange

Day 2: Arles

Day 3: Cassis? or Brignoles

Day 4: Brignoles

Day 5: Castellane

Day 6: Le Lavandeu or St Tropez, or both

You can visit Cassis for a few hours, do the cruise of the Calanques, and/or have lunch in one of the waterfront restaurants, and move on.

Are you staying in each of these destinations?

When are you travelling?

I think Cassis is really gorgeous and worth visiting. However it depends on the time of the years and it can be overcrowded in high season (mostly 14th July to 15st Aug)

Cassis is picturesque, beautiful, laid back and really nice! I dont know what negatives you heard- it really is a great little town to spend a few days

Not your question, but are you returning your car in Barcelona?

Otherwise you will incur expensive on-way drop off fees if you're planning to leave it in France.

Cassis is very picturesque. The hotels and restaurants are good. What's not to like? Well, parking is a problem. Stay someplace with parking or be prepared to do some walking from the public lots. But it's worth it.
