My husband and I are spending a few days in Cassis before heading north. I'd like to stay in a B & B with a view of the sea. Any recommendations? Would another city be a better option if we wanted beaches but not too far from Marseille? We will be flying in there and don't really want to extend the travel time on that first day by too much.
Cassis is a wonderful place and has several choices of beaches in the town varying from sand to rocks as well as various boat tours of the Calanques and hiking paths along the ocean with beautiful views. I don't know of any B&Bs though, as we camped when we stayed there. Stay away from restaurants on the harbor - many are tourist rip offs with bleh food that is overpriced. We found the best ones were in the little side streets just out of sight of the ocean close to town center and the beach. You can see my Cassis page for specific mentions.
