Camping around Port Grimaud


Recommended Posts

We are currently in Provence but want to visit further along the coast towards St Tropez, Port Grimaud, Nice eventually towards Menton but this is for September when the rush of summer is subsiding.  We would prefer not to be on the big sites on the coast as happy to travel down and visit for the day. We have the ASCI book now but would appreciate anyone who has visited any sites in these areas in September and could recommend.  Caravan is a two berth, we wouldn’t mind a site with small bar and restaurant.  We’ve looked at Camping La Bergerie as accessible easily to Nice and have just found Camping Cros de Mouton which seems pleasant. 

Any suggestions or recommendations would be appreciated.

Cavalaire is a very pleasant  sized resort, and Camping Cros de Mouton which you mention gets good reviews. However, it has the disadvantage   of being high out of town, therefore driving and finding car parking is required every time you go out.

 

  If you are attracted to Cavalaire I suggest you look instead at Camping de la Pinede which is an old established site, but not a flash holiday  camp,  in the heart of the town and within an easy walk of shops, bars, cafes and the harbour. It has the further advantage of not being in the ACSI book !

Camping Cros de Mouton is at the top of a hill........... so no walking into town.    There are sites in the town itself - I don't know Camping La Pinede (mentioned above) but we've stayed at Camping de la Baie, Selection Camping, and Le Bonporteau, as well as Les Tournels at Ramatuelle, and others in the area.  We have friends who still live in La Croix Valmer and are overdue a visit to see them.  I would go back to any of them - but it's a while since we stayed there.

Thanks Moorgate and Val.  We were actually in Nice last night and so en route back we did have a look at some places so your recommendations were timely indeed.  We did like the area of Bormes les Mimosa and Le Lavandou as well and which we are investigating.  It is a really pretty coastline but as earlier showed us it’s very very busy in August with lots of traffic but we intend to go there in September so am sure will be a different place , as many places are in the south when the schools go back and everyone returns to work!

To me if you are going to be in the area around Port Grimaud you should be next to the sea. We like Camping de la Plage which is right on the beach and is not a massive site compared to its neighbours. We haven't been for a few years but it was one of our favourites. Probably not in the ACSI book.  Years ago you used to have to book by sending a form to the Paris address of the owner!!!

Bergamo,  if indeed you choose Le Lavandou or Bormes les Mimosas you might like to go to find Fort de Bregancon, just a few miles away.  It's the official holiday beach house of the Presidents of France - we were chased away by armed  guards a few years ago but these days you can book a guided tour at certain times of year.
