54 Days at Sea — Port Grimaud, France


Port Grimaud, France

As much as we enjoyed traipsing about Saint-Tropez, I personally found Port Grimaud even more photogenic even though it’s much newer than its neighbor to the east.

Port Grimaud is a ‘planned’ town. It was built on reclaimed marshland in the 1960s, and the architect who designed Port Grimaud was François Spoerry.

The town is crisscrossed with canals, and there are many pleasure craft throughout.
