I have found some modern funky beach huts just outside St Tropez in the South of France and am looking for a couple of people to share accommodation with me.
Saint-Tropez is located on the French Riviera, It is a small fishing village full of charming winding medieval streets and traditional pastel-painted fishermens cottages, boutiques and restaurants. In the port you will find fishing boats moored alongside mega-yachts.
Saint-Tropez boasts a number of beaches the most famous being Pampelonne beach which stretches for some 3 miles and boasts beach clubs including Club 55, Nikki Beach &Tahiti Beach. Plages La Glaye, La Ponche and de la Fontanette are three small beaches fronting the oldest part of St Tropez village.
The main shopping event in St Tropez is the morning market on the Place du Lices, every Tuesday and Saturday. Watch the locals going to the market with baskets to do their daily shopping and pick yourself a bargain.
Across the Saint-Tropez Bay, Port Grimaud is known as the Venice of Provence. This Venetian style lagoon village is arranged into four little islands, each joined by canals and bridges of wood or stone. There are plenty of shady squares, shops and restaurants. There is even a market on Thursdays and Sundays. Visitors can be transported around by barge (coche deau) or you can hire your own little boat and cruise around the waterways.
Port Grimaud has its own large sandy beach with a variety of water sports facilities. The beach faces St Tropez and the view is particularly stunning at sunset.
Altough St Tropez is known for its famous and wealthy summertime guests it can be done on a budget.
Drop me a line if this sounds of interest to you.
