´The 'ville tranquille' is a great place for a relaxing break in the heart of Provence. Bandol is a lovely peaceful town on the Côte d'Azur, situated between Marseille and Toulon. A home for artists and authors over the years, it is known as 'La Ville Tranquille'. The town is sheltered from the wind by the slopes which surround it, and there are three excellent beaches. These face west, east and south respectively, while there are a number of rocky coves along the coast which anyone staying in Bandol holiday cottages can explore. The region is also popular with French families from further north, and as far away as Paris, who like the privacy the region offers. This privacy has been part of the attraction for writers such as the German Thomas Mann, who lived here at the turn of the 19th century. The town is also a pleasant winter retreat, as the crowds who flock here in the hot months of summer have lessened, and the peaceful beauty of the town and coastline can be better appreciated. Another location where creative figures such as poets, artists and writers have been inspired to produce master works is North Italian Lakes Villas - let your creative juices flow and your imagination run wild in Bandol!
