"Le Cap Cassis"
A place open, warm and clear. Those who arrive, stay. For the moment, or even for a while. With five very individual, tastefully furnished rooms, the Chambres d'Hôtes is an ideal place of retreat as well as a source of strength and new impressions. In the midst of the Alpes Côte d'Azur, the view from the breakfast table extends directly to Cap Canaille, the highest cliff in France. A UN World Heritage Site that offers a magnificent play of colours depending on the position of the sun.
It is just a five-minute drive to the sea, and the centre of Cassis is within walking distance. Only the way into people's hearts is even shorter here in the south of France.
A pool, plus tropical palm trees, a sauna, e-bikes, stand-up paddling boards, boxing gloves, yoga mats - you can do it all here. But of course you can also read a good book in the hammock.
Daily varying organic products, freshly prepared, make breakfast a taste experience: refined own compositions alternate with typical local specialities. Of course, vegetarian or vegan food is also available.
Le Cap Cassis" was completely renovated by Margit and Klaus in May 2018 and made into a truly special place with great attention to detail and selected materials. Come and see for yourself.
Be welcome, we look forward to seeing you!
Margit Dittrich has been running her own consultancy - personalmanufaktur - for over 20 years and has fulfilled her childhood dream of running her own hotel with "Le Cap Cassis". A place of tranquillity, which at the same time offers opportunities to meet. Connecting people has been one of Klaus' main tasks over the past 20 years, in his role as CEO of Messe München. Retired since July 2022, he enjoys having good conversations and continuing to network on a small scale.
Both like people and you will feel that from the first moment. With great attention to detail and in a very personally designed ambience, they and their team have created something very special: a hotel where guests feel "at home" in the best sense of the word.
Margit and Klaus have already spent many holidays in Cassis and have fallen in love with the place and the surroundings. Since they have both travelled a lot in recent years, they were able to gather many impressions from other hotels and put them into practice in their Chambres d'Hôtes. They both attach great importance to design, good quality and an extraordinary flair. And if something appeals to them, Margit even has a lot of things in a hotel shop to buy.
The result is a private place of retreat where time slows down and a special attitude to life emerges.
We have furnished our rooms (between 14 sqm and 40 sqm), including two suites, with great attention to detail for you. After all, a room is one thing above all: a place to feel good and recharge your batteries.
Refined, fresh and rich in vitamins: the start to the day deserves the best.
Inspirations everywhere, plus tasteful and inviting - this is where time and space meet in a new dimension.
Here, it's the content that counts in the true sense of the word: Swimming towards nature via Infinity.
Once you go online, you're really hooked. From the good connection.
You make your bed, you lie in it. And preferably comfortably.
We offer the space for all kinds of wishes. Even wishful happiness is possible.
A place full of memories that you can even take with you:
Either climb the mountains with our e-mountain bikes, brave the waves with our stand-up paddle boards or try your luck at boules on our natural petanque court in our jungle oasis - there's something for everyone.

SEE & DO
Cassis is a small picturesque coastal town with about 3500 inhabitants, whose fame extends far beyond the French borders.
As soon as you let your eyes wander over the scenery around the harbour or stroll through the narrow little streets of this gem, you will be enchanted.
Thanks to its central location and short distances, you will probably - just like us - never finish visiting everything the region has to offer in terms of beauty.
In any case, the two world heritage sites that Cassis alone offers are a must:
Cap Canaille and the massif of the Calanques.
At Cap Canaille, you can watch the sunrise or sunset with a magnificent view that is second to none.
The Calanques, which stretch from Cassis to Marseille, should be experienced with all your senses on a hike: the nature, the paths, the scent of Provence - you will even be rewarded with swimming opportunities when you get to the second or third Calanque.
In terms of cuisine, no wishes are left unfulfilled, as there is a great variety of wonderful restaurants:
If you like to enjoy star cuisine, you have a wide choice. Dimitri Droisneau's Villa Madie in Cassis was awarded the third star in 2022. Another 3-star restaurant is by Hélène Darroz and is located about 60 km away in Chateau La Coste. Haute cuisine is also offered at Le Petit Nice by Gérald Passédat as well as Alexandre Mazzia's AM in Marseille and Christophe Bacquié's restaurant in Le Castellet. In all cases, it is worth making a reservation well in advance of your arrival.
Of course, regional French cuisine in all price ranges is also available directly in Cassis. We will be happy to give you recommendations for your individual preferences.
A boat trip to the Calanques is also heartily recommended in any case: whether you charter a boat yourself or ask Klaus to go out to sea with you, or whether you book the organised boat trips at the port of Cassis. You will enjoy the beauty of the sea and the view of the calanques from the water. A rented kayak/canoe is also fun, but requires some sporting commitment.
There are about 50 museums within a 50km radius of Cassis, offering incredible cultural diversity. Whether the MUCEM or the newly created Grotte Cosquer in Marseille, the Fondation Carmignac on the island of Porquerolles, the art trail in Château La Coste, the Musée Granet or the Fondation Vasarely in Aix-en-Provence - art lovers will marvel at the results, just like all the famous painters marvel at the incredible light.
Do you like to drink good wine? Then Cassis is the place to be: this small town has 14 (!) wineries and is famous for white wine and rosé. You can also visit some of the wineries.
If you would like to expand the sporting offer of Le Cap Cassis: in Cassis there are 2 tennis & paddle courts, a sailing school, a climbing garden, a bicycle rental, a tuk-tuk to rent for excursions as well as Segways and kayaks.
The second largest French city Marseille is worth a visit in any case: be it the cathedral Notre Dame de la Garde, the old harbour, various beaches or the Arab quarter with its markets and colourful hustle and bustle. Immerse yourself in a cultural diversity that will delight you.
Equally beautiful are excursions to Provence to Aix-en-Provence, Avignon, Toulon and Hyeres, to Le Castellet and Cadière-d'Azur as well as to L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue. A very special experience is offered by the flowering lavender fields in early summer and the truffle market in Richerenches in winter.
We would be delighted to help you with your planning. We are delighted to open up this wonderful region to you and are happy to share our enthusiasm with our guests.
