What a delight to spend our week here, comfortable in La Rade-Cassis. While the Tripadvisor photos are faithful pictures of the place, it is impossible to fully capture the nearness you feel, as Nathalie's guest, to the liveliness of this little seaside town with its boat harbor, people-watching cafes, pleasant beaches. With the massif ever in the background to anchor things down.
Whether walking to the market (we cook most meals during such weeks) or hiking to the Calanques Park region, or trudging up to one of the overviews by yonder cliff, or walking across to rent a kayak to employ -- poking along the edge of surrounding crags.. it is all done pleasurably from here; always a safe and comfortable place to rest and recover energies at day's end, to reflect on the refreshment you are discovering for your soul.
Book as soon as you know your travel dates, as this one's calendar will fill early!
Location has been mentioned, of course, and that's true in terms of not many steps needed to reach the quai for a stroll and to watch people being tourists and, now and then, seeing them relaxing. Which proximity is important.
The bigger ingredient for me, though, was the view from our balcony, always there. Fresh air exactly the right temperature, the privilege of breathing it in, in that setting whenever. Not to be equaled.
Add to that the sensitive yet generous hosts, for this convenient living space, and you have an unbeatable week ahead. Go for it!
Nathalie and her husband very kindly met us from the train station. The apartment was in a block one road back from Cassis port. It felt secure and safe. The apartment itself was very clean, bright and well equipped with good quality furniture and fittings. We loved the balcony where we enjoyed our breakfast every morning and sat and watched the sun go down in the evening. Nathalie and Francois gave us ideas of where to dine, things to do and places to go. We found them a friendly and helpful couple. We enjoyed our holiday in Cassis very much - and we definitely made the right decision in choosing this apartment.
Lovely, clean, well equipped flat in ideal location. Magnificent view from balcony. Nathalie was easy going and helpful enabling us to have a perfect week. We'll definitely return.
Having had a wonderful stay at la rade in January -when our holiday plans suddenly changed - we had no hesitation in booking to stay for another week, this time late Nov, early Dec.
The apartment is perfectly situated 50m from the harbour, secure parking, lovely terrace, well equipped kitchen and comfortable living area/bedroom.
There is so much to do in and around Cassis, walking along the Calanques, cycling, sea kayaking or just sitting on the terrace with a glass of Cassis vin blanc enjoying the view!
Merci Nathalie et a bientot!
A very last minute booking and in 24 hrs we discovered that we had found a lovely place to stay in a fantastic area of Provence Cote d'Azur.
The apartment is located just a 2 min stroll to the harbour and into the town with secure parking.
Very well equipped kitchen and living space and a delightful terrace with views over the rooftops to the harbour and Le Canaille (the cliffs beyond).
Key pick up - no problem!
We would definitely come again!
