I was in Bandol in May/June 1972 for a French Immersion Exchange. We stayed at a hotel up the hill (sorry, that's not much help!). It had a small dining room and central courtyard. I have no idea what it was called. What I do remember is having to go up and down the hill to attend French Classes, head to the main drag by the ocean, or go to the beach. The hotel was very quaint, and served Vichyssoise every second night for supper (so yummy!) Our windows faced out into the courtyard.
If anyone knows which hotel based on my very old and not too distinctive comments, please let me know!
