To be visited

Cassis

Situated at 40 km from Aix-en-Provence, Cassis offers to its visitors exceptional discoveries. This small fishing harbour of about 8000 inhabitants yet has an international renown as Cassis has managed to preserve its Provençal and Mediterranean authenticity. Frédéric Mistral declared that «those who have seen Paris and haven't seen Cassis, have seen nothing ».

Fishing, the fishermen and the pointus (fishing boats) are the heart and the energy of the life in Cassis. The architecture of the harbour´s houses is just like them; simple, sober and robust which allows it to be protected today. The historical centre, registered as a monument, will amaze you with its colourful alleyways, its private mansions, its fountains and its shady squares. The magnificent vineyards should not be missed either.

At dawn, when the sun comes up behind the Cape Canaille, Cassis turns into a true work of art. The city is situated in a particularly exceptional geological setting, with the massif of the calanques at the West side and the imposing promontory of the Cape Canaille at the East side, formed by ochre rocks, about 90 million years ago. Its majestic cliffs look out over the sea and the village from almost 400 metres.

The massif can be visited by taking the sightseeing crest road. Fully equipped parking spaces allow you to stop and admire a breathtaking panorama with spectacular views on the gulf of Cassis, the calanques, the island group of Riou as well as the Var coast in the East.

Various artists have been attracted by the charm of Cassis. Amongst the most famous, Francis PICABIA, Georges BRAQUE, Maurice VLAMINCK, Raoul DUFY and Rudolf KUNDERA who lived here…

 

NOT TO BE MISSED:

Exploring the calanques on foot or by boat, the calanque of En-Vau being probably one of the most spectacular ones; following the crest road by car and stop to admire its exceptional panoramas, especially the one from the Cape Canaille.
