My 2nd Home - Côte d'Azur

Hey guys!

It's me again! This time I want to tell you about the Gulf of St Tropez. Since about 15 years or so, my family and I visit this one place every year. In the first years, we went to (my beloved) Port Grimaud in the Easter or autumn holidays. I was so sad when we couldn't go in 2012 due to my final school exams (comparable to A-Levels), and EVEN SADDER when I realized that  the Easter holidays would not match the opening date of the camp site on which we live in mobile homes when being down there in 2013 :(

Having that in mind, you can probably imagine how excited I was when we were on our way this year! :D

I hope these photos will explain, why I love this region so much and why I refer to it as my second home.


An impression of the actual harbour of Port Grimaud. Love these coloured little houses! Also, I think, I might have a thing for sailing boats!



Port Grimaud actually consists of small canals and bridges (which offer wonderful places for capturing magical memories) 

This is Cogolin which is the nearest little village to Port Grimaud with its little roads. I actually spotted this cinema for the first time this year and thought it was beautiful with the squiggly balcony so I quickly took a picture :)


Here you can see the harbour of Ste Maxime - the next village on the other side next to Port Grimaud. These little villages all have nice markets on a weekly basis where you can find some souvenirs and little treasures.



This is a special place in Ste Maxime on the right next to the local casino. Probably about a hundred athletes of several different sports are represented by their hand prints and signitures. Can you spot the blue-blooded? ;) 
(and yes! It's the real one!)


Me by the seashore with the outer edge of St Tropez in the left hand corner and oh! Surprise!
A sailing boat!





Smooth transition there.. I proudly present: St Tropez! The place for the rich and beautiful (and artists and tourists). Countless artists present their paintings of all kinds on the promenade and directly next the yachts and smug sailing boats. I also caught sight of this cute café with the nice sun terrace on the right hand side.



Sorry for my 1001 photos, you can tell.. I love that region!

And lastly, a small picture from the campsite I told you about. If you're interested in checking it out (do it! It's lovely!! proud to be able to promote it, finally :D ), you can do it here!

If you prefer watching a video about it: Here it is! (I put the link for German here)


I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know in the comments, if you like! I would love to read them!! Also tell me, what your favourite destinations are, where you would like to go, or where you plan to go next!
