The South of France will never go out of style. Choose from luxury spa hotels, smart studios and authentic maisons d’hôte in Cassis, a charming harbour town in Provence, to experience the best of this timeless European destination.

Most rush to the glittering shores of Saint-Tropez and Cannes to experience the glamour of the Côte d’Azur, but quieter Cassis holds all the charm of Provence with fewer crowds. Rolling vineyards produce the region’s finest wines, while striking limestone cliffs cradle narrow inlets that lead to secluded beaches around this pastel-shaded fishing port. Book one of these places to stay in Cassis for a prime location.

Taking its name from the white limestone cliffs around Cassis, this hotel has been welcoming A-list guests since the 1920s. Riviera romance oozes from its secluded rocky perch above the water, where infinity pools spill into the cerulean sea and cloud-soft beds look out over the sparkling waters. Head to the spa for phyto-aromatic treatments before dining on the delicacies of the Mediterranean. Or join Rémi, a local fisherman, on his traditional fishing boat for a day out on the big blue.
