Description of the Bandol vacation cottage rental
We have had many appreciative comments from our guests, some of whom have returned again and again. The atmosphere is incomparably romantic, private and 'away from it all' yet just a few minutes' drive to beaches, markets, villages and shops.

A detached cottage unseen by others in the secluded hills beyond the old and elegant seaside town and working fishing port of Bandol, located on approximately four acres of private terraced slopes on a hilltop with a spectacular view of the Bay of La Ciotat, 'Port Vignoble' is beautifully restored, furnished and equipped, sleeping, ideally, anything from a couple to a family of four. It is centrally air conditioned and heated. Hidden from view by our natural pine woods off the country road that runs from Bandol to the ancient village of La Cadiere d'Azu, French doors open onto the large terrace in the front onto an aerial view of the Mediterranean across vineyards descending to the sea. We have two bedrooms, shower room, large kitchen-dining room, sitting room and laundry room. Newly centrally air-conditioned and heated.

Equally magnificent at night, it is surely 'the real Provence!

Area Information
Many famous historic areas, such as Le Castellet, Sanary-sur-Mer, Aix-en-Provence, Avignon, St Remy, Les Baux, Arles, Nimes, the Camargue, etc. are all within easy reach, as is the Cote d'Azur, with St.Tropez, Cannes, Nice, St. Paul de Vence, which are from one to two hours' drive away. We are between the cities of Toulon (about 15 minutes' drive) and Marseille (about 25 minutes) which are both endlessly fascinating, Mediterranean cities. More immediately, we are between two of the most famous wine châteaux of Provence, where fine wines can be tasted and purchased at local prices. The towns of Bandol, Sanary-sur-Mer, La Ciotat and Cassis have wonderful restaurants as well as domains where wonderful Provençal wines can be found.

What a lovely place!

March 30, 2015

Date of Stay 11 April 2014 We stayed for ten days in April this year and we found it delightful. It's a small, charming cottage with two bedrooms that's very attractively furnished in bright colours and rattan, very Mediterranean feeling. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom is adequate, with a shower, bidet, etc. The beauty of the place is the terrace with the view of the Mediterranean. We met some locals who told us that this house has the best view of the area. The owners have kept it as natural as possible, so that you enter via a pathway through a wooded area that keeps it totally private from the road, and come upon a spectacular sweeping view of the Mediterranean. We spent almost the entire time outside on the terrace and had all our meals there, even though, being April, it was sometimes a bit cool. We imagine it is wonderful when the weather is very hot, as it seems to be cooler there than in the villages and towns or in the valley. We toured a bit, and came across some of the most gorgeous sites we've ever seen--the Route des Cretes between La Ciotat and Cassis, and the Grand Canyon du Verdon, about two hours' drive north through some of the most charming villages and countryside. Thoroughly recommended for young and old!
