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 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 by our pine woods off the country road that runs from Bandol to the ancient village, 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!
Many famous historic areas, such as Aix-en-Provence, Avignon, St Remy, Les Baux, Arles, Nimes, the Camargue, etc. are within easy reach, as is the Cote d'Azur, with St.Tropez, Cannes, Nice, St. Paul de Vence, 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.
