Maison 9 – Cassis, France

Only a 10-minute walk into Cassis, this luxury maison d’hotes, fully renovated by a German couple in 2009, is situated in the middle of vineyards looking across to the Cap Canaille. With only four suites located apart from the main house, the feeling is one of peace, tranquillity: it’s the perfect place for serious grown-up relaxation. Beautifully decorated rooms have fantastic beds, small sofas, lovely large bathrooms with walk-in showers and a small kitchenette with espresso maker. The mini-bar contains free wine and water and each suite has its own private terrace. Check-in at 3pm / check-out at midday.
