Yesterday the day was centered on Bandol and its assets. Today we invite you to discover the other side of our territory, the hinterland.

Start by having a good breakfast on the terrace. Because nothing better to start the day than a coffee, a croissant and some sun. So go buy your favorite pastries at the bakery closest and sit on the terrace of a bar neighborhood, or on the church square or even with a view of the port. Savor this lovely moment for two.

Sit down on the bar terrace the Narwhal and order your tray from the charming couple just across the street in the market. All washed down with a glass of chilled white wine… it's not heaven, but almost!

Take your car and direction La Cadière d'Azur, 20 short minutes from here. This village is THE typical Provencal village. Narrow, colorful and cobbled streets, stone village houses, bell tower at the top, view of the vineyards and olive groves… it almost feels like a Pagnol film. So stroll through this pretty village to soak up its atmosphere.
