About Jean-Pierre Dautricourt
Former residents of Cassis, we're happy to rent our apartment in this beautiful area of France to travelers and vacationers for their enjoyment. We live in California part of the year and Cassis part of the year.

Why Jean-Pierre Dautricourt chose Cassis
Cassis is a very desirable place in Provence. We bought this apartment because it is sunny, pleasant and ideally located within walking distance of the village center, harbor, beaches and hiking areas.

Our first visit to Cassis
We had a wonderful time in Cassis and the apartment we stayed. The communication with the property owner and manager has been timely and accurate from booking to check-in then check-out. The apartment location is perfect as we could easily walk to the town center and hike to the Calanques. The view from the apartment is very nice.
Fantastic apartment, location and view!
We had a wonderful stay here in Cassis. We loved the apartment and it is exactly like the pictures. The French doors from the living room and bedroom to the balcony were wonderful for both amazing views and fresh air. The location was perfect for us. It is an easy walk to the main part of Cassis, to Plage Bestouan, and the entrance to the Calanques National Park. Christine was a great host and was easily available if we needed anything, which we didn’t because the apartment was well equipped! Check in and out went smoothly. We can’t wait to go back and highly recommend this apartment.
Stay here for the view
We had a good experience with this place, but you should have expectations in line with staying in a French apartment. No air conditioner, not much linen provided (honestly could stand to buy new towels and sheets), no coffee. The apartment manager was kind enough to meet us on arrival, and to provide toilet paper which we ran out of (only 1 roll in the place). It is a steep walk up from the harbor, but that is all of lovely Cassis. Parking is available.
Thanks for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Our apartment is set up with long stays in mind, so you can be independent, have meals at home or out, and enjoy the area at your leisure. We go out of our way to provide amenities such as an entertainment center (TV, radio), a fully-equipped kitchen and bathroom, towels and linen, not to mention a wonderful apartment manager for our guests. The towels and sheets are new this year. Perhaps you didn’t find the towels as soft and fluffy as ones you are used to, but I can guarantee they were clean and dried in an environmentally-conscious way (outside in the fresh air vs in a dryer). Throughout the year, it is rare that air conditioning might be needed as the apartment always enjoys a nice breeze from the sea. A large fan is available for your use. I can’t really address your other concerns as we don’t promise coffee or flat terrain.
Clean and well-equipped apartment with beautiful view and balcony.
This apartment fully met our expectations in terms of facilities and the view! It was very clean, a good size, and well-equipped. The balcony and view are beautiful, and it is a 5-10 min walk down into town/the port. Cassis is a great little village that with many great restaurants, some wineries and hiking around he Calanques. We also did day trips through Cannes/St. Tropez and some hilltop Provençal villages. Jean-Pierre’s apartment was a great homebase for us to explore Provence as well as relax and enjoy Cassis!
A great apartment with a beautiful view. Good location!
Truly amazing view!
We just returned from a 10 day stay in this lovely apartment in Cassis. The view is truly spectacular. It was a delight to wake up every morning to breakfast on the terrace with such a view. Cassis is very hilly and the apartment is pretty high up so you should be aware of this if
walking uphill is a problem. My husband and I are in our 60's and in fairly good shape so we felt the walk back and forth to the the center of town was good exercise. Cassis is a very picturesque fishing village and the center of town is about a 10 minute walk with many restaurants and shops and lots of activity. There are 2 beaches which are also about a 10 minute walk from the apartment.
Jean-Pierre was very helpful in answering all our questions and responded quickly to our
e-mails. The apartment manager Mme.Annie was waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived to give us the keys and to show us the apartment. The outside of the building does look a little dated but not terrible. The inside of the apartment was clean and updated and had everything we needed to feel very comfortable.
The tourist information center in town was very helpful. They have maps and information on everything in the area. The young people who worked there all spoke English and were very helpful to us. With my basic knowledge of French and the locals understanding of English we were able to make ourselves understood wherever we went. Definitely try to get to see the beautiful Calanques either by boat or by hiking. We did both and enjoyed it. We only walked to Port Pin and I would say it is moderately difficult but the views are amazing.
We had a car and drove one day to Aix-En-Provence and one day to Arles which are both good one day excursions. The highways are great although driving around the town of Cassis is not for the faint of heart. Until we got the hang of it with our Google phone app it was a little unnerving.
In any case I am still basking in the afterglow of this wonderful time in the south of France.
Dear CarolAnn, Thank you for this very informative and positive review. We are delighted that you had a great time in our apartment and in Cassis! We hope you’ll come back sometime soon!
A traditional fishing village, Cassis has lots of colorful and bright buildings around the harbor, which is overlooked by a delightful castle. The village is picturesque with an abundance of cafés and restaurants.
Boat trips around the Calanques, which are spectacular, steep Mediterranean fjords of white limestone accessible mainly by boat. Lovely beaches to have a picnic and a swim.
Many wineries. Winemaking interest and activities.
