The picture below shows the lovely port of St Tropez, a regular port visited during our trips.

Whether it's the seas near Bandol (left) or the bustle of Marseille (below) the area is bursting with fantastic places to visit. Approaching them from the sea, as all good ports should be, further enhances the aura of discovering new horizons.

The seaside resort town Saint Tropez is still very popular with the tourists,the jetset and the in-crowd.Set on the lovely blue water of the Bay of Saint-Tropez, this modern version of a medieval town is most popular for the line of yachts along the quai, and the facing line of terrace cafés, divided by a parade of strolling tourists and slow cruising expensive cars.

Le Lavandou, below, is one of Frances premiere locations where the French take their holidays.

A beautiful area with sun, lavander and cicadas, the world renowned Le Lavandou is located at the foot of the Massif des Maures in the var departement. In the heart of the Mediterranean coastal region of the south of France. With over 12km coastline, the treasures of Le lavandou are painstakingly cared for and monitored. Long, sandy beaches with small, wild inlets : a thousand little heavens are yours in total security. Le Lavandou used to be a small fishing port facing the marvelous Iles d'Or (Golden Islands). Today it is a major international marina and sport fishing port. Divers come for the beauty of the sea bed with its rich marine life and crystal-clear waters.

Port Grimaud, below, is located in the Gulf of Saint Tropez, approximately four and a half miles from Saint Tropez itself.

In 1962, a French architect named François Spoerry purchased a piece of land at the mouth of the river Giscle with the idea of transforming it into a “Provençal” Venice. An elaborate system of canals and islands were constructed, the idea being that every owner would be able to moor their yacht right outside their house. Two and a half thousand houses have been built and no two are the same. Mr Spoerry wanted the properties to age like a traditional fishing village, the houses are painted in a huge variety of colours and all the windows and roof tiles are slightly different. Port Grimaud has aged as Mr Spoerry intended,with a truly cosmopolitan atmosphere. Many of the people that own property here are from northern Europe and the town is filled with tourists during the summer months.
