Day trip to Bandol in October

Sunday is market day in Bandol so it’s a little busy but it’s not too touristy which is what I love about the place. Unlike St Tropez, Cannes, and Nice, you don’t hear too many other languages being spoken here (other than French!). And yet it has everything – a beautiful port, fantastic restaurants and shops, and of course great wine. Bandol is about an hour’s drive from Cotignac (just passed Toulon), it’s perfect for a Sunday stroll in the sun, and you can take the long way back for a fun, picturesque drive (via Olioules, Meounes, etc).
