The historical heart of Bandol
The third: Back on dry land in the heart of the village, in the morning, the small market square between the town hall and the Church is the historical heart of Bandol, a magic triangle described by the writer Katherine Mansfield in her Letters. The appointment of the small producers of vegetables on tomatoes, zucchini flowers, beans pistou soup, all for anchovy fish … the local fishing and the famous basil that never leaves the table. After filling our basket, we catch the flight packed lunch or a simple bruschetta with Cécilien, the young chef of the market, then we ask ourselves on the terrace of Bar Tobacco Nerval, in the shade of plane trees to sip ACE (Orange Carrot Lemon for vitamins a, C, E) watching people do their shopping. At least we do prefer Buffalo to share a glass of rosé in the Bandol neighborhood bistro pure juice where Marlene welcomes you with a big smile. Even the real Tarte Tropezienne is housed in Bandol or she does not feel disoriented on the port that is comparable to that of Saint-Tropez!
