Bandol might not be quite as well known as more shouty destinations on the Côte d’Azur, such as St Tropez, Toulon and Cannes, but that's not to say that this beautiful seaside resort should sit within the shelter of its picturesque bay and be overlooked by anyone seeking out the charms of the French Riviera.
This fabulous region of sunny southern France is famed for its glitzy resort towns, gleaming azure waters, inviting beaches and people who appreciate a little glitz and glamour, and those who visit Bandol won't be disappointed by what is on offer here. Warm, golden sands await, providing a natural sunbed on which to relax and soak up the rays; the promenades and streets are alive with high-end shops, restaurants serving the finest French cuisine, and trendy cafés where locals stop by to drop their bags and enjoy an artisan coffee. Beyond this though, Bandol throws in a little something extra; it is situated close to a number of vineyards and wineries producing some of France's finest tipples, which the town's bars proudly serve to provide a taste of authentic local flavours.
