At last the grey clouds and rain had disappeared leaving us with blue skies and sunshine. We have discovered that this part of the coast has over 3,000 sunshine hours a year-better than the UK’s cold and wet!
We headed out to the small village Grimaud which according to our guide book is a film set of a village perché. We explored this pretty village and headed up to the castle ruins which had superb views over the surrounding countryside and the coastline. Compared too many of the French villages this was quite neat and tidy and felt cared for.
We enjoyed lunch sitting in the sunshine before exploring the windmill which again had great views.
Heading down to the coast we stopped at Port Grimaud which was created in the 1960s with waterways for roads and yachts everywhere. We had seen similar resorts in America which were far better. This had the very French rustic uncared for feel. Perhaps winter is not the best time to see it?
