Bandol... A very singular name which inevitably resounds in the minds, even if one does not know the city. A name full of history and sunshine, which even before the boom of Saint-Tropez at the time of Brigitte Bardot, attracted personalities such as Marcel Pagnol, Raimu, Mistinguett or Fernandel. Bandol was one of the first seaside resorts in France, and remains today among the most authentic.
The city of Bandol lives indeed throughout the year. It is appreciated for its numerous beaches, sandy or pebble, for its charming marina and for the liveliness of its market (on Tuesday morning), for its pleasant cornice path sheltering here and there unsuspected natural creeks. From water sports to hiking, via the superb Frégate golf course nestled between the hills and the Mediterranean, there is no shortage of outdoor activities here! And that's without counting the fifty or so wine estates classified as AOP Bandol, which we highly recommend tasting (always in moderation). A casino is also located here; in short, Bandol has many strings to its bow!
