Port Grimaud, St Tropez baldscape

#baldscape #cotedazur #portgrimaud #southoffrance #frenchriviera near #sttropez and #saintmaxime ort Grimaud is part of the commune of Grimaud in the Var department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur. Located on the French Riviera, it is seven kilometres west of Saint Tropez and seven kilometres south east of Sainte Maxime. Port Grimaud began to rise out of the sand dunes around the marshes of the river Giscle on the north shore of the Golfe de Saint-Tropez in 1966. This extraordinary #architecture experiment was the idea of François Spoerry who envisioned a town built in the manner of #venice channels of water and traditional #french #fisherman houses, each with a personal #boat #mooring space at the end of the garden. Port Grimaud today is a charming village with an extended development history encompassing attractive Provençal-style houses on a network of canals. The houses are designed to be individually different, an excellent place for #travel and #baldscaping #madeingrimaud
