Bandol is a seaside town (station balenaire) on the Mediterranean coast between Toulon and Cassis, east of Marseille.
The town has a harbor shared by yachts and fishing boats, lots of shops, cafés, restaurants and events for visitors.
D. H. Lawrence had been staying at Bandol since October 1929 when Dr Andrew Morland, the English lung specialist, examined him and persuaded him that his long-neglected tuberculosis required urgent care. On his advice Lawrence moved on 6 February to a sanatorium in Vence .
