Two weeks in Cassis or somewhere simila - lots of questions!

Hi, I'm wondering if you wonderful people can give me some advice...I've been reading some guide books and they all seem to say that Cassis is a lovely place to stay along the Cote d'Azur. We would like to stay somewhere "authentic" along the coast with good transport links to the local sights. We hate package tours and over crowded beaches! Is there anywhere else nice along the coast that isn't over developed?

We are looking for somewhere to stay in May before our first child is born in September (I will be 6 months pregnant by then) and as I don't want to fly, we could get to Cassis by train.

We don't want to hire a car, so is it possible to get around using public transport for day trips? We would love to see some of the "real" Provence while there - e.g. hill top villages, Aix, Canyon Valley (forgotten what it's called - sorry) etc.

The other thing is the budget - accommodation and food seem incredibly expensive - all the restaurants seem to start at 25 euros each. I realise this reflects the quality but are there any budget options you can recommend as we couldn't afford this every night with the exchange rate being as it is!

Thanks for reading and any suggestions.

Citer.fr does not have an English version, but it is pretty self explanatory and standard. National is the US counter part but pricing isn't quite as good.
