    Hi
    I have lived here for the last 27 years and had a buisness on les prairies de la mer until this year. Prairies is the most developed of the sites and has lots of onsite facilities (check riviera villages website) next to prairies there are 2 campsites camping de la plage and camping de mure both directly on the beach.There is also holiday marina which is nice site but not on the beach. The surrounding area is well worth the visit and port grimaud itself is beautiful. If you need any further info just contact me
    Alan

    Many years ago I used to deliver mobile homes to Prairies de la mer. Long before it became fashionable. I visited about 3 years ago and could not believe how the place had changed. When I first went there, the only restaurant was a Les Routier affectionately known as "The fat mans" which was just outside the campsite. The place now resembles Venice with prices to match.

    You may well have delivered to me. The routier was a good restaurant we used it quite a lot in the winter as we had no time off when the site was open.

    Ronny Stamp was the main man in those days. Must be almost 40 years ago now.

    Stayed at Prairies de la Mer earlier in the year - they are an ACSI site so price was very reasonable for the excellent facilities. Most of the site is now covered with holiday chalets, but the M/H area is still quite big with a choice of shaded or not pitches (we managed to pitch up right in the middle of a German M/H Rally, but they made us welcome). Port Grimaud is through the side gate, there's a good on-site supermarket and the beaches are fine. Bus outside the gate takes about 25mins into St Tropez. Would stay there again.

    We stayed at Le Yotel at Cogolin Plage when we were visiting relatives there. Just a short step from Port Grimaud

    That is a pity - we could walk to my Sister in Laws apartment from there (and stagger back).
