Name South of France, April 2013

Hey, I'm looking at going to the South of France April 2013. Would like to visit Eze, Nice & St Tropez. I have found some funky little beach huts in the Bay of St Tropez right on the beach. The accommodation sleeps up to 5 people.

A little bit about Saint-Tropez located on the French Riviera. It is a small fishing village full of charming winding medieval streets and traditional pastel-painted fishermen’s cottages, boutiques and restaurants. In the port you will find fishing boats moored alongside mega-yachts.

Saint-Tropez boasts a number of great beaches the most famous being Pampelonne beach which stretches for some 3 miles and boasts beach clubs including Club 55, Nikki Beach &Tahiti Beach and is the place to party. 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 d’eau) 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.

Although St Tropez is is known for its famous and wealthy summertime guests. It has been dubbed the 'playground to jetsetters, fashion models, and millionaires' it can be done on a budget.

Would be great to hear from anyone who is interested in comming along.
