Visiting the regions in September 2018 with a group of friends. We rented a house in Bandol. The owner was gracious enough to help out with visiting his part of the world. Took us on hike from the Callenlongue to the Marseilleveyre Callanque. The views,...More

November is not the best season as it rains a lot but regardless the beauty of this area is undeniable!! Take one of the tours and they drive through the park, stop at some excellent viewpoints to see the coastline and calanques.
