Cassis

Cassis is a small Mediterranean fishing port in France's Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region. It's home to centuries-old pastel-colored châteaus, rosé and white wine producing vineyards, and magical colorful calanques (narrow inlets with steep limestone cliffs and so many magical shades of blue that your eyes have probably never seen before). The three closest calanques to the village of Cassis are Calaques de Port-Miou, Calaques de Port-Pin and Calanques d'En Vau. The harbor is filled with all types of boats, sidewalk cafes and restaurants and on Wednesday and Friday mornings, they have a local farmers' market in the village-centre where local vendors and craftsmen come out to sell all sorts of fruits, cheese, bread, meats and some of the best linen that you can find in the South.
