Cassis, or nearby, before the Luberon -- recommendations, please?

Jake Dear | Jun 10, 2013 08:44 PM

Inspired by Kurtis' great Luberon thread (, and catfur's in the general area as well (, we are planning two weeks in the heart of the Luberon in April-May 2014.

But we'd like to start out with a couple nights down by the coast -- and preferably right on the coast. Ideally at a family-run hotel/auberge/restaurant, where we can dine on premises at least one night.

We are thinking of Cassis (want to see les calanques) -- but will the town be too much like Collioure (which we found nice but rather a bit too perfect/crowded/touristy?). If we go to Cassis, we are looking at Nino -- seems to fit the bill, and I saw a good rec on this thread: But I have some reservations based on this: Any recent experience from members of this forum here?

How about other coast location alternatives -- in the nearby Var: les Leques? Bandol? Sanary? les Sablettes? Or a bit inland: le Castellet? la Cadriere d’Azur?

Thanks -- Jake
