As an American living in Marseille, I was fortunate to discover Cassis. We went many times on the weekend which is a short distant away. Surprised that so many from US who have been to the South of France don't know this great place. The cliffs are frightening but beautiful at the same time. The port is worth a visit with a boat trip to the Calanques. Since I moved back to the U S I have returned to Cassis three times. Miss it when away.
