OK, you solved one problem. Here's another.

Taking off from advice I received in this forum, I've booked a place in Cotignac for our trip to the Var next June. So now I could use some advice for the second leg of our stay.

We're deciding between staying in Aix, which we know and love, and opting for somewhere along the coast. We really don't want to be between Nice and Menton: been there, done that several times and we're allergic to crowds and traffic jams (get enough of that at home in Manhattan).

So we've been thinking about Bandol or Sanary, which may be quiet but should be pretty and appealing.I looked at Hyeres, but it's a lot bigger and not on the Mediterranean, so I've just about ruled it out.

So my questions are: is it hard getting into and out of these towns? We love Cassis, but find it a pain to drive in and out. Will we have the same problem in Bandol or Sanary? Or can anyone suggest another quiet and charming place to base for four days? (Have begun to look into Bormes-les-Mimosa also.) Our plan is to spend the days wandering around, perhaps a boat ride, a visit to Porquerolles, and some visits to neighboring towns and countryside; then on to Cotignac and more of the same!

Thanks again.
