“Lovely family hotel with own sea-front access”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

Les Roches Blanches is a super, small family hotel, with its own direct access on to the Mediterranean Sea. It has stunning views of the town of Cassis, which is within walking distance, and there is a good public beach about 200m walk away. The hotel itself has its own infinity-type rim flow swimming pool, and terraces under the Aleppa pines for excellent sun-bathing opportunities. There is a fabulous 10-foot metal vertical ladder leading directly from the limestone terrace rocks into the Med : you can either climb down, or dive in if you're brave enough. We have had two lovely holidays at this hotel - each evening we walk into Cassis and eat at a different restaurant each night. Fully recommended.

Room Tip: Sea view with balcony

We visit Roches Blanches in Cassis last September with 8 people. What a beautiful location. Building has to be updated, but the location with the pool with seaview is perfect.
Nice staff a expensive, but fresh breakfast!
We have bin there four the third time.

The grounds of the hotel are not to be missed. There are lots of hidden places that you can lounge and enjoy the view of the town of Cassis and the Mediterranean. We really enjoyed the access to the ocean....jump off a ledge and into the water. Very refreshing. I wouldn't rate the quality of the rooms as the best that I have ever stayed in; that being said, if i ever went back to Cassis I would def stay at Les Roches Blanches again.

This lovely Art Deco style hotel's position offers unrivalled views over Cassis. The terraced grounds maximise the space available, as does the elegant infinity pool but the stars of the show are the staff. Old time elegant service in the restaurant and the ladies in reception really couldn't be more helpful. All in all, a marvellous experience.

Room Tip: 285 Euro for a sea view worth every penny.

We stayed here in July 2013, while visiting family in Cassis. My aunt stayed here in the 70s, and the well kept facilities transport you back to those days. We enjoyed the time travel, especially as our room was modern and quiet, with well functioning airco so you are certainly not giving up on modern comfort. The garden is SPECTACULAR, with wonderful views on the Cap Canaille. The hotel is relatively small compared to the garden so guests can spread out (in sharp contrast to the rather crowded public beach down the road). You also have direct sea access but be warned that the water can be surprisingly fresh. The breakfast is 20 euro per person, which seemed a bit steep, but we never tried it. Staff is very courteous and helpful.

Arrived late so woke up from the most comfortable bed to a stunning view, went for a swim straight off the limestone rocks into the cool blue med before a wonderful breakfast. Felt totally relaxed after 2 nights in the hotel, staff are laid back and charming (spoke good English which helped us!)
Not only does the garden meander down to the sea but also it is half way between walking into the centre of Cassis or going over to the Calanques, tennis courts etc in the other direction.
Can't wait to return sometime and bring our teenage boys with us next time (need to save up first!)

I went to this hotel for the view and I was not disappointed. The view from here is spectacular. We took a large room that had a large balcony with seating. The room was well equipped but service was poor and our experience at their add on breakfast was terrible.

So the high price you pay is just for one thing - the view. We went to Cassis as part of our holiday in Provence for just 2 reasons -to see the Azure Mediterranean and the calanques. The Azure and the calanques did not disappoint but the hotel at this price was an average experience at best.

It's a pleasant 10minute walk to the main port area, so not sure why some people feel it's too far away.
