This is THE place to stay in Bandol! The view is BY FAR the BEST in the city!! The apartment is very spacious, especially for European standards. I've stayed elsewhere in Bandol and have never had so much room. Great place for sharing with friends or family. I notice some folks have complained about the size of the bathrooms, but the bathroom sizes were very typical for Bandol. I like the set up with two shower rooms and one water closet. The bathrooms and kitchen have updated fixtures and appliances, including a dishwasher, and a separate washer and dryer. There are lots of outlets in every room. The bluetooth speaker was a plus! And several games are available. A full size ironing board and iron are available and there is even room to use them comfortably. The location is UNBEATABLE. You are right in the town center with the marina, shops, grocery, markets and restaurants a few steps away! (The city noise was a little loud on Saturday night when the fair/carnival is in full swing, but you can close the windows if it bothers you, or go down and enjoy the fun.) The public beach is a short walk away. Truly a great place to stay to explore all of Bandol. There are two security doors to the building before you get to the apartment, making it a very safe place to stay. Check-in and check-out were easy. The host was very responsive when we had questions. I will be trying to book this AirBnB EVERY time I travel to Bandol!! Thank you, Cecile :-)

Response from Cecile:
Thank you very much for these appreciations, which go right to the heart, it is a publicity impossible to circumvent. Normally there are 2 keys, but the plumber who remade the shower rooms kept one for the moment ... Same for the bulbs, I claim the electrician for 6 months to replace by leds but a distance - even with Martine's help - it's not easy. Regularly every winter, we do maintenance, I hope if you come back it will be more comfortable. Thank you for your enthusiasm. Au plaisir, cecile

We loved our stay in Bandol, three generations stayed in the loft apartment, and in suited us very well. The location is perfect, right by all the restaurants, close to the beaches, marina, there was even a local market on the Tuesday. Bandol is a small coastal town but you will find everything you need there. The loft apartment is well equipped with all the amenities you will need for a comfortable stay. Martine the housekeeper is lovely and full of character, and Cecile answers questions very quickly via email. A few points for potential guests, there is a lift that takes you to the 3rd floor then you have to walk a further floor to the apartment. I would not suggest this if you have walking problems, as the lift did breakdown for two days. Also this is a loft apartment so the shower room had very low slanted roofs, which meant my father in law had to shave on his knees. That being said we would all return tomorrow!!!

Cecile was very helpful as well as her housekeeper. The view is magnificent and Bandol is a very nice city to visit.

We were made very welcome and greeted by Martine with the keys. The location was truly brilliant for us with two children. and the view from the main window was wonderful. A brilliant stay!

The apartment is very nice, big and near to all services. Cecile is very kind and she answer immediately to any question. The only point is about the bathrooms, they are small and short for eight guests like us.

This is an amazing apartment in a beautiful old building - the flat is in the top floor (lift to 3rd floor and then one flight of stairs) of the building overlooking the port area with views of the sea from almost all windows ! You can shower whilst looking through the window at the sea! The location is superb - close to all amenities - restaurants immediately surrounding and many more within 5 min walk, small supermarket which has everything you need 2 min walk, beach less than 10 min walk, train station 10 min walk, bus stop 1 min walk. We are a family of 5 and the flat was spacious with 3 bedrooms each with a double bed and another sofa bed area in the lounge. The only downside of the flat is that because its in the loft the bathroom area has low ceilings which was a little inconvenient as you can bump your head on them ! (my son and I are about 6 foot). In the bathroom area are 2 separate showers and a separate toilet which is very convenient. Cecile is an excellent host - we had a couple of minor problems which were fixed promptly with quick email / text replies and did not stop us from going out or doing anything - problems were fixed while we were out. Bandol is an excellent base to explore the area - the town itself is beautiful. We explored Toulon (city centre, Mount Faron, naval museum), Marseilles and Cassis by train and Sanary Sur Mer, St Cyr Sur Mer and le Ciotat by bus (note limited timetable so you need to check times). We explored Calquanes & Ile de Porquerolles by boat - all of the areas were fantastic. A local taxi driver Jean Pierre (mobile (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)) was reliable and superb for picking us up and dropping us back to the airport and charges the local metred fare - highly recommended.
