Port Grimaud in the French Riviera

21 June 2016


Let's all say a huge great big hello to the most inaptly named village in the French Riviera. Port Grimaud evokes images of a dark town with black buildings, lots of iron work, fire, smoke and probably loadsa horrible little goblins holding lanterns and grunting at you as you walk past (...too far?). But in actuality, despite its nasty little name, it's a really cute place. Kinda like Venice. Just with a lack of overpriced gondolas and, praise the lord, far fewer selfie sticks.






  






  



Also, had you visited Port Grimaud in 1959 you would have been very disappointed because - interesting fact alert - the village wasn't actually built until the 1960s by French architect Francois Spoerry. He literally built the whole thing on the water, total dude.

Have you visited South of France before?
