Stayed here with my (heavily pregnant) wife for one week in August. Very friendly hosts. Great setting, stunning views from breakfast. Nice location - a bit tricky unless you have a car (or very strong legs) as 20 minute walk uphill from Cassis - as a bit off the beaten path. Lovely swimming pool, very well maintained. Only small niggle was the wifi just never seemed to work for us, the hosts tried to resolve but didn't work. Another was that instead of a shower we had a bath with a shower but no curtain so not really used to it. Piece of advice: if you are coming in peak season (which we did!) parking in Cassis is an absolute nightmare, either drive in early evening or use the car parks slightly out of the town. All in all this was a fantastic place with great hosts.

We had a wonderful stay at this bed & breakfast. The room was spacious and very nice. The pool area was wonderful with a magnificent view. Julie and Jean Claude were excellent hosts, always helpful and smiling. The breakfast was very tasty. This is the best place we have stayed ever. Hope to come back some day.

* Service - excellent and attentive service - with perhaps the most varied and tasty breakfasts which we have received in France
* The room - whilst modest but adequate in size , it is still an attractive bedroom with separate dressing room, Bathroom & Toilet. Also a very private side terrace features, which was secluded and peaceful.
* Location & amenities - Swimming Pool is a good size and is located in front of the house with spectacular views - as is the breakfast terrace above the Pool. A real Oasis in suburbs above Cassis ovelooking lovely countryside and the cliffs beyond. It is also situated close to the local beaches and restaurants in Cassis.
* We very much liked the owners, Julie & Jean - Marie's personal attentive style - highly professional and warm manner. They have a selected list of personally recommended local restaurants and they would go out of their way to book these by phone on behalf of their clients should you wish it, ensuring the provision of a very good table selection.

We enjoyed the excellent French Breakfasts and an evening BBQ & drinks on the Terrace.

We , honestly, disliked nothing about our stay - other than our car wing mirror being "clobbered" by a passing vehicle when parked in the Street. We were unfortunate, as little trouble is normally experienced.

No hesitation in recommending and we hope to return!

Room Tip: Book early for your particular choice!

We stayed here for 3 nights in June/July 2012 while travelling through southern France with our two children. The La Demeure Insoupconee house and grounds are very beautiful, well taken care of and extremely clean. We stayed in the Ivresse des Sens room which was fantastic and extremely spacious for a room in France. It had a large queen bed, a double sofa bed for our daughters, a beautiful bathroom with a giant shower, a large sink countertop and a seperate toilet chamber with its own sink. The room also included a dining table, a bar, a mini-refridgerator and full table settings which was perfect for a late afternoon snack or could be used along with the outdoor grill if you wanted to cook in meals. This room also has its own private outdoor patio with seating and lounge furniture on the side of the house which is perfectly shaded in late afternoon. There is a beautiful pool with fantastic views of the Cassis vineyards and the Mediteranean sea. The hosts Julie and Jean-Claude were very nice and accomodating although we did have some language barriers since our French is not great and likewise with their English. Breakfast was good as well. We drove into Cassis for the beach and dinner at night (2 minutes to get there and 10 minutes to find parking) as opposed to walking because the walk was difficult for our children. Parking at the B&B was abundant and convenient. We did have some issues with the bank wire transfer for our deposit and I never asked (since at the time I didn't realize how difficult and expensive a wire transfer would be) but I hope they take PayPal which is what we used for all of our other non credit card taking B&B's.

My husband and I spent two nights at this B&B. This meticulously maintained villa has one of the best views of Cassis and is furnished with great taste. Julie, a gracious host, did everything to make our stay memorable. The room was sparkling clean and had multiple amenities including plates, cups, and utensils. The hosts provided detailed information about the area attractions and restaurants. The breakfast served on a terrace overlooking the sea was excellent.
The only small problem was that the owners did not accept credit cards and required a deposit wired to their bank at my expense. But at the end it was worth it!
This B&B has my high recommendations.

We had a wonderful time at La Demeure Insoupconnee. Julie and Jean-Claude are absolutely great. They did everything to ensure we had an amazing time while we stayed in Cassis including recommending nice places to eat and visit and being so nice and sweet with the four of us. We enjoyed a splendid view of Cap Canaille and the Mediterranean Sea from our room Natur'Elle et Lui. The room was perfect, greatly equipped with a wonderful bathtub and very nicely decorated. We also had access to the summer kitchen with its BBQ which was great since we did not want to eat out every night. I would return anytime and I think this place is going to become one of the best place to stay in Cassis before long. If you like to meet great people and be surrounded with pure beauty, this is the place to be.

Wonderful villa with fantastic view over the valley to the blue sea; comfortable rooms, enough place, perfect breakfast with Julie's home-made marmalades;a nice swimming pool. But the best: The hosts Julie und Jean-Claude, very friendly and helpful authentic people. Jean-Claude speaks fluently german. 12 minutes to the picturesque harbour, but 15 back over a "stairway to heaven". Nevertheless, you will like it!!
