We stayed in the campground in Cassis. You can walk to the climbs near that side of the Calanques, like En Vau. To get to others you will need a vehicle.

There is a lot to climb in En Vau and I would take trad gear; some are mixed routes.

Yes we did. It was crowded and nearly full. Lots of campers and a mix of tents and trailers. A restaurant on site helped with breakfast; showers were hot and sinks provided.

Easy walk anywhere. About 1.5 hrs walk to En Vau.

Thanks, Manny.

I will go there with my friend's family (with baby) in April. I hope it would not be that crowded at that time. Is there any laundry service at that site?

Is there any cheap hostel in that area, just in case the weather is not friendly at that period of time?

I am not sure if I can help beyond the info I provided. Good luck, it's been a while and there may have been laundry on-site. Check with them.
