Bandol house description

Your stay at the Villa Chene Vert will combine the charms of Provence with the pleasures of the Mediterranean coast.

The house is on a hill with beautiful views over the nearby sea. The garden has lavender, almond and olive trees and there are vineyards in back of the house. In addition to our large (5x10 meters) private pool there are several nearby beaches, within minutes by car. These are sandy and sloping and so ideal for small children.. Furthermore there is a pretty ``calanque'' (rocky cove) for swimming off the rocks and skin diving.

Good roads and convenient rail connections make this an excellent location to explore coastal Provence and the Cote d'Azur.


Bandol is famous for wine and food. It is one of France's small but famous wine regions See the article in the New York Times `Wines of the Times 'of March 18, 2014. The book `Lulu's Provencal Table' by Richard Olney is about Bandol and the family of one of the most noted vineyards. (Also the receipes work!) There is a beautiful marketplace with fresh fish from the town fishermen and produce from the local growers. Almonds, tomatoes, olives, peaches and apricots are among the local specialties. There are a number of renowned vineyards including Tempier and Pibarnon.

The weather is generally mild. The light is beautiful as made famous by Cezanne and the impressionists. Lavender is at the door and there are almond blossoms and mimosa in the winter.

The very picturesque medieval villages of La Cadiere and Le Castellet with their artists' and craftsmen's workshops are in the nearby back country. Aix-en-Provence, Marseille, Toulon are not far. Avignon, Nice, Cannes, and the rest of the Cote d'Azur are a bit further but within range for day trips.

There are tennis courts in town and we are very close to the famous and beautiful 'Golf de la Fregate'' golf course. Walks on the cliffs along the sea starting from the Calanque provide breathtaking views. Those in the back country bring us into the light and colors of the impressionist painters.

There is a double-size living room with fireplace whose south walls are glass sliding bays opening towards the sea. There is a large terrace towards the sea. This is the usual dining area in good weather--that is, most of the year around.

In addition to the living room, the other rooms also have the glass sliding bays. There is central oil heating when necessary in winter. A small private meditation area with a sculpture and a view over the bay of Bandol is entered from the main bedroom. Shade is provided by a large, old, live oak tree ( a Chene Vert).

The garden apartment, has its own terrace, kitchen, two bedrooms, and other facilities. It may be rented together at a reduced rate for larger groups, or rented separately.
