After our eventfully or possible uneventful day in St Laurent du var we headed a little way along the Cote D’Azur with the intention of spending the day at Port Grimaud, somewhere we had visited before and really loved.
Last time we stayed directly on the beach at camping Les Muirs but sadly like most of the other campsites is shut in November, so we are spending the night on the towns site ( N43.279730 E6.577960) which is the princely sum of €15 all year round, so what a bargain in the high season !
So if you’ve not heard of Port Grimaud your missing out on one Frances best kept treasures!
A charming lakeside town located in the heart of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez in southeast France, Port Grimaud is known as the “French Venice.” It offers waterways and canals throughout the town, and every homeowner can moor a boat in front of his own home.
Ok so you’ll need the best of a million euros for a simple 3 bed cottage, but for that your part of a private village facing the sea, featuring colorful facades, town markets, Roman tiles and small streets as well as shops and conveniences that rival a modern city.
The place doesn’t pretend to be exclusive, it is exclusive, Heaven on a plate!
