Cassis

Cassis is a city in Provence in southern France. Celebrated for its cliffs and calanques, it is also known for the Cassis wines (white, but also rosé) produced in the region.

“Qu’a vist Paris, se noun a vist Cassis, pou dire: n’ai rèn vist” (“One who has seen Paris and who has not seen Cassis can say: I saw nothing”) — these words, spoken by Nobel-prize winning writer Federique Mistral in the local Provençal language, reflect the great attraction that Cassis exerts on all those who go there.

The little fishing port, tucked between two exceptional natural sites (the celebrated Calanques and the majestic Cap Canaille) offers a concentrated version of Provence and the Mediterranean. The magic begins to work on the little road that leads to the village, winding between vineyards and pine trees. Walk along charming back roads lined with the brightly coloured homes of fishermen. Cassis will be forever remembered by those who see its port, boats and welcoming terraces for the first time.
