Bandol, France

We like Bandol wines, so when we saw the sign by the side of the road, we had one of those “Really?! Really?!” moments. Alas, we did not have time to visit any wineries, but instead wandered through the very miniscule village, along the beaches and the harbor.

The colorful seaside homes and crowded harbor contributed to a relaxed, resort feel.

If we had visited the vineyards (maybe next time!), we would have seen some of the oldest vineyards in France, dating back 2,500 years to the Romans. Whites and rosés are produced on the coast and reds are produced inland.
