Cap Canaille

 

One of the most seductive resorts on the Provence coast, Cassis boasts a stunning location, a lovely harbour, a sprinkling of beaches, exceptional wines and, despite the crowds in summer, an intimate, small-town feel. About 25 kms south-east of Marseille, the harbour of Cassis snuggles at the bottom of a steep bowl of land surrounded by lush vines and pine trees. On the south-western side of the town, towards Marseille, several calanques are within easy striking distance.

It became renowned as a holiday resort at the end of the 19th century drawing such notable visitors as Virginia Woolf and the Bloomsbury group (Woolf’s sister, Vanessa Bell, described Cassis as “Bloomsbury on the Mediterranean”). Winston Churchill took painting lessons there in the 1920s. In fact many artists gravitated towards Cassis, including Paul Signac, Raoul Dufy, Adolphe Montecelli, Félix Ziem, Joseph Garibaldi and Louis Audibert, Churchill’s painting tutor. Napoleon Bonaparte and Leon Trotsky both popped by too, with rather different intentions.

To the south-east, the town is dominated by the red and rugged Cap Canaille, at 394 metres / 1293 feet one of the highest cliffs in Europe, while the route des Crêtes between Cassis and La Ciotat counts among the most scenic drives in Southern Provence.
Our villa, Cap Canaille, is situated on the way out of town off route des Cretes. It is a beautiful architect designed house, set on the slopes in a tropical garden containing mysterious corners and exotic plants, and has marvellous views of the mountains behind, the valley below and of the sea.

The swimming pool (12 x 6) is at a higher level with brilliant views: it is fenced and can be heated. A lovely feature of the property is the large summer fully equipped kitchen, with large dining area. There is also a hammam and an outside shower up here by the pool.

The entrance to the house is through an arch to a courtyard patio with large pots and a fountain, reminiscent of Andalucia. Inside the stone floors and furnishings work in harmony of white and grey, glass and complimentary fabrics and modern paintings.
