“Beautiful and Relaxing!”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

Our 3 night stay at Maison 9 was the perfect way to relax and ease into our vacation after flying into Marseilles from the US. Upon our arrival we were warmly greeted by Christel and taken on a tour of the amazingly lovely and peaceful property. The suites are situated so that each one is very private. We stayed in Suite #1 which was beautiful and quite comfortable. Each morning we were served a delicious breakfast on the patio overlooking the vineyards and rural countryside. The breakfast offerings included fresh fruit, juice, coffee/tea, fabulous cheeses and meats, sweet rolls, croissants, baguette, granola, yogurt, eggs made-to-order, and bacon. It was paradise! Christel readily offered her assistance in recommending local restaurants and sites, as well as making reservations for us. All the staff was courteous, cheerful, and quite helpful.
As others have noted, Maison 9 doesn't accept credit cards or US checks. Since we didn't want to carry around excessive amounts of cash, we wired the funds for our stay in advance. It would be nice if Maison 9 had a PayPal account so payment could be made with less hassle.
Overall, we had a wonderful stay at Maison 9 and recommend it without reservation.

Room Tip: We had good WIFI access in Suite #1.

Maison 9 is located approx. 5 min drive to Cassis where you will find all sorts of different restaurants, shops etc.

This is not a classical B&B; it is more run like a hotel - very professional though.
The owner, Mrs Maus was not there and Mrs Christel who took care of us during the stay was nice but it did not have the personal touch you would expect from a B&B and this is what we missed most.

Maison 9 is located close by a busy street which leads to the highway; you will hear the noise during the day but this is no issue during the night.

Our room was very nice. As expected the interior design very tasteful.
It is more like a junior suite with a separate living and bed room with a little private porch. Regretfully the bed was too soft for us, felt saggy but it could have been that the mattress was really soft. The bath room is small and offers only a shower. The room we staid had no Wifi - in order to use this free service we needed to go to the pool area instead. Not a big issue but not very handy.
The garden and the pool area is beautiful and worth to stay; you can also play Boule if you want.

Breakfast was good but nothing special. You can expect fried eggs, bacon, croissants, fruits, pastries, jam etc.

There was a power issue and the gate did not open at 10pm and no one was around so we could not get in first. Finally we managed to get in but this is something you do not want to experience during your vacation. And I guess this is also what we mean if we say me missed the personal touch. Mrs Christel was really sorry for that but it left some bad feelings at our end...

However, it is a lovely place and worth to visit at least for 2-3 days even it is not cheap. There are great things you can do in and around Cassis or you just enjoy Maison 9.

This must be one of the best-looking B&Bs in the world. Seriously! My husband and I stayed for 2 nights in early May and were really impressed by the design and the cleanliness of the place. The place was as immaculate as Mme. Maus herself - it simply spelled class and quality! Christel who attended to us was really warm and helpful, providing suggestions on where we should go to eat or explore.. etc.. The only downside would be we had to drag our luggage over stones to get to our room which wasn't easy but well.. we got by! It's nothing compared to the overall experience.

We stayed here for 4 days in early October. The house is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and everything is well planned by the owner.The manager Christel is absolutely wonderful. She took care of all our needs and served the most delicious breakfasts overlooking the vineyard. The delicious eggs ( cooked to your choice), yogurt, cut up fresh fruit and the pastries could not have been better. Christel helped us plan our day and she and Martine ( also great) even made a few phone calls for us. The grounds are very beautiful and it is such a peaceful setting.
It will be hard to find a bed and breakfast to live up to the standards of Maison 9.
You will love it here!

We had a fantastic stay here in April 2012 which was one of the highlights of our three week Italian/French getaway.

We spent three nights in Cassis and I booked at Maison 9 based on Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed! The accommodation is just delightful - so well appointed, thought out and beautiful. The views across the vineyards are perfect to wake up to, and the breakfast that follows either in the room or on the terrace is delicious. Once you break the ice with Christel she will ensure you are well looked after, as we were. She even went to the trouble of sourcing gluten free breakfast items for me which was greatly appreciated, and sharing her knowledge of nearby Aix and even Paris, which was our next stop.

The small kitchen in our apartment meant we could self-cater when we felt like it, and the bed (and amazing bedhead!) was divine. Maison 9 has given us plenty of design inspiration for our own home - thank you Mme. Maus!

Cassis itself is fantastic - everything you imagine a French portside town to be - and only an enjoyable 10 minute walk from Maison 9.

It was too cold to laze by the pool when we were there, but next time we stay we'll definitely be sure to go in summer!

This was one of our favourite places on our holiday and we cannot wait to go back. I cannot recommend Maison 9 highly enough.

My husband and I stayed at Maison 9 for two nights, and although the grounds and room were lovely, we felt as though we paid entirely too much for it give the lack of warmth shown to us by our host, Christel. It lives true to the images on the website, so you won't be disappointed when you arrive. in fact, the views of the vineyards and cliffs are breathtaking, however, you can enjoy them elsewhere in Cassis. Just think twice about the value of your money, because that is all you will get - a nice photo. Christel was professional, but also somewhat rude when it came to our arrival time (1 hour late) and method of payment (cash paid in full before we left, but not directly upon arrival because we did not want to travel with such a large amount on hand). If you run a upmarket bed and breakfast, you must treat your guests with accommodating grace and show trust in them. We left feeling, not like valued guests, but rather like children being chastised by a disappointed parent.

This is our second stay at Maison 9 - this time for 12 glorious nights. For us it simply does not get any better. This beautiful Maison is superbly managed by the extremely capable Christel. The degree of perfection is not only due to the property and specific standards of owner Mme. Maus. Christel, the manager, has this place running like a machine. Apart from being a lovely person her exacting standards reflect the well deserved praise so apparent on this site and it is this that makes Maison 9 stand out like none other. Yes Cassis is glorious, absolutely the waters are azure, certainly the rocks and cliffs are awe inspiring, of course the walks and scenery are like non other, without a shadow of a doubt the Maison is perfection personified. Thank you Mdm Maus and Christel for your extraordinary attention to detail. We will be returning and I'll leave it at that!!
