Madam Valerie and Monsiur Jules are so helpful and kind, and the room was nice and clean with a beautiful view of the sea and Le cap Caneille. We were so pleased with the room, the breakfast and the location (about 10 minutes walk to the harbour and 5 to the calanques). Madam Valerie gave us a map and poited... More

Cassis is a great spot and the house is really in a nice location on top of a "rochelle blanche". The house is within 15 min walking distance to the harbour (shops, restaurants, cafes) and 5 min walking distance to the entrances of the calanques. Right underneath the house (very steep trail) is a nudist / gay "beach", which is... More

My wife and I ended our driving tour of Provence with a stay at Valeries and Jules B&B. Our stay was in May 2013 and we stayed in the Belvedere Chambre. First of all I must encourage everyone to visit Cassis. It is a beautiful escape if you are looking to get away from the city and experience good restaurants,... More

We had a fantastic time at L'Escale! The owners are wonderfully welcoming and go above and beyond. Our room (La Colonel) was spacious with a funky mix of Asian and modern furniture, very clean and with its own patio. Julien's breakfasts were sumptuous and Valerie was so helpful with suggestions during our stay. We enjoyed quite a few aperitifs (sipping... More

I stayed in this charming B&B in September 2012 for three nights. I had a great stay. First, the owners very kindly picked me up from the train station in Cassis - incidentally, if you are arriving by train and the owners can't pick you up, make sure you arrange a taxi (I didn't see a taxi rank outside the...

In June 2011 we stayed very comfortably at L'Escale, and in January 2012 we booked again by email for a visit in July 2012. Our reservation was confirmed by email. The day before our booking began, I telephoned M. Vonblon to confirm our time of arrival. He appeared to have no knowledge of us, and no record of our booking.... More

Honestly, I don't understand the negative reviews. This is a charming house. The owners are gracious. Our room was clean and very comfortable .. (we had the CAP room) and it felt bigger then most of the photos we had seen so i'll attach some photos of my own. We had no trouble parking just in front of the house... More

We thoroughly enjoyed L'escale. Valerie was very gracious, breakfast was perfect and ample. Our room looked out over the bay to the towering cliff of Cap Canaille. A short walk home from the town, much appreciated after wonderful dinners at restaurants recommended by Valerie. Two friendly dogs, well behaved added to the good feel of L'escale. Plus free on street... More

We've traveled for 7 days in the region and stayed at 3 places. We've stayed at L'escale for the last 2 nights. We've booked this B&B because of the photos in the website (gorgeous!) so we didn't check tripadvisor either. I have to say, do your research and do not decide/judge based on the cover of the book. We've have... More

L'Escale is slightly outside of the centre of Cassis but is an easy and pleasant stroll away. The view of le Cap Canaille is spectacular and makes for a wonderful place to eat breakfast and to relax into the evening and night. Valerie is a very welcoming hostess and Julien's breakfast's provide a wide variety to suit everyone and to... More
