Port Grimaud, the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Rregion, France. A seaside town is unbelievably young – created in the 1960s by French architect François Spoerry, who has adopted the Venetian channel system, thus is sometimes nicknamed as the “French Venice”. However, its coast boasts the fishermen houses, very characteristic to iconic Saint Tropez.
The town serves as a port for the boat owners, who park their boats in front of their houses basically, and almost has no other traffic. The colorful houses and lush greenery make it look such a picturesque place. Town markets and shops provide everything one needs to assure a nice stay in this tranquil oasis. There is plenty of accommodation here for the travelers, since Port Grimaud promotes tourism. Discover this relatively unknown gem on the French Riviera.
