“Lovely B&B, Lovely Host!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2011

The Dorn has a gorgeous view from the patio where breakfast is served, looking over the ocean. It is located just a short walk from the port (about 10-15 minutes). Anne, the host, is wonderful and sweet, and made us feel right at home.

We had a fantastic time at The Dorn. The house is beautiful, located in a very quite neighborhood, but still within walking distance from the harbor area. The bedrooms are spacious, with very comfortable beds. This is for us the best place to stay in Cassis.

This was our first experience of a chambre d'hôtes and it was a very good one! Madame L'Amie welcomed us very warmly into her beautiful home with amazing views of the sea and Cap Canaille. The guest bedrooms are downstairs and the main part of the house is upstairs, so we also had the advantage of having our own private accommodation and felt free to come and go as we pleased. We had a huge bedroom and bathroom with large bath and shower and our own outdoor terrace to sit on. There is on-street parking but there is also a large driveway where guests can also park. Breakfast is normally served from 8.30 to 10.00 - very civilized - and you get lovely fruit salad and yoghurt, freshly squeezed juice and croissants and bread and jam. In addition, Madame L'Amie has all of the ordnance survey maps for walking and can tell you where all of the best walks are and how to get there.

The Dorn was the most wonderful B& B that we stayed at in Cassis. The location was perfect with stunning views. It is situated close to the Port for trips to the Calanques and visiting restaurants for lunch and dinner. It is also in walking distance from the rambling trails to the Clanques. The B&B is run by Anne, who is charming and gave us a warm welcome. She took the time to recommend places to eat/visit and the tours to take. The room was a good size with an ensuite bathroom and a fantastic breakfast was provided in the price. All in all it was great value for money and like a home away from home,. we would highly recommend it to anyone.

I just want to confirm what others have written here following our May 2009 stay. You could not find a place with a better view, a more gracious hostess and guide, and with a more ideal location in Cassis than The Dorn in my opinion. My husband and I stayed here 3 nights in May 2010 and felt lucky to have found it. It is walking distance to the center of town in a beautiful, quiet residential neighborhood. Cassis is also a perfect place for those wanting to visit the French Mediterranean Coast and see incredible beauty while having the conveniences of a town. If you love to walk or hike, go to Cassis and stay here.

We have been going to "The Dorn" for several years now and every year we love it more. Madame L'Amie is a fantastic hostess, her English is perfect and her knowledge of the area will make your stay even better. The rooms are homely and spacious, comfortable and very quiet.
We absolutely love Cassis, it is a gorgeous little town set in a harbour. Be sure to look it up on Google earth to give you a taste of it. There are so much things to do, trekking, swimming, sight seeing and much more. There are great restaurants, cafes and bars.

The Dorn in Cassis is such a special place to stay. Madame L'Amie is a charming hostess with excellent English, having spent years living in Ireland. Her house is beautiful and the rooms are large and comfortable. Her breakfast terrace looks out over the harbour at Cassis and the walks round Les Calanques are just around the corner. Cassis is a great little harbour town which is still unspoilt and has great restuarants and cafes.

All in all, It is a fabulous treat - go!
