Seaside villages between Marseille and Toulon

Bandol  is a gentle seaside resort in a sheltered bay, cradled by hills.  The seaside shopping/cafe area and esplanade are very pleasant next to the moored boats but more impressive is the white sandy bay/beach behind the village. There is a water therapy spa on this bay with an excellent restaurant. The village is easily accessed by train, with an easy walk down hill from the station.


La Ciotat has fabulous calanques and the highest maritime cliffs of Europe as well as the Gulf d'Amour with its many sand beaches and a boating port with 850 moorings. There are also many restaurants and hotels that live up to the reputation of the most beautiful of seaside resorts with its old picturesque fishing port, its beautiful 17th century houses around the port and its Mediterranean atmosphere.


Cassis is an ancient fishing port and is an interesting village to visit. with its nice old buildings, some dating back to the 16th century, and some restored with the colorful pastels of Provence, and old fountains as well as famous open-air artists markets. The harbour area is really the prettiest part of Cassis which is still a small fishing port, but the little fishing boats now share the harbor with yachts and tourist boats for visiting the calanques. When driving from Marseille go along the coast, lots of green hills and vineyards.

Sanary sur Mer: Sanary-sur-Mer is a popular, albeit relatively quiet, coastal resort and a pleasant place to explore with its pretty harbour lined with palm trees and pastel coloured houses, old buildings including 13th century tower and sea front beaches are very close. The port also still contains an active fishing fleet and you can buy fresh fish on the quai here each morning (or visit one of the many restaurants that serve delicious seafood). There is a traditionalmarket here every Wednesday morning. See also a studio to rent here.
