My fiancée and I recently traveled around the South of France and were told by a friend to stay at Chateau de Cassis. One of the best travel tips we've ever gotten!
The Chateau is up in the hills overlooking the beach, town and marina of Cassis -- a quiet and unpretentious vacation town in the Côte d'Azur. Many people might overlook this town for more well known tourist destinations like St. Tropez, Monaco or Cannes. However, the scenery, ambiance and vibe of the town is one of the best I've ever visited in Europe.
The Chateau has the most incredible 360 degree views of the town. Vineyards along the hills on one side, and the most blue/green water I've ever seen along the coastline when you look in the other direction. The Chateau is run like an upscale Bed & Breakfast by Bernadette, who was extremely nice and helpful. A great French breakfast is served on the terrace each day.
Our room, I believe the Baptiste suite was perfect -- which a very large living room/den, large bedroom, updated amenities, Wi-Fi, etc. The views from the room are amazing. I believe the chateau only has 6 or 7 guest rooms in the entire compound, and while we were visiting only one or two rooms had guests -- so it felt as if we had a $50 million villa all to ourselves for the trip. The pool is perfect and a great way to just relax after spending the day at the beach.
My only hesitation to write this review is the fear that the secret about Chateau de Cassis will ever get out and will become too popular -- as we hope to be able to have the same experience when we visit here many times in the future.
