Situated seven kilometres to the west of Saint Tropez lies the seaside town of Port Grimaud. Whilst the town of Saint Tropez was becoming internationally renowned as being a ‘playground for the rich and famous’, Port Grimaud had not even been built.
It was in the 1960s when architect Francois Spoerry created Port Grimaud based around the marshes of the River Giscle on the bay of Saint Tropez and an eclectic mix of Venetian-style channels and French ‘Fisherman’s’ houses.
This virtually car-free town quickly became known as being a ‘private lagoon pleasure city’, with a waterway for yachts parked at the bottom of every garden. So exquisite did Port Grimaud soon become that it was only the likes of Joan Collins who owned a house here.
Port Grimaud has maintained its desirability to the well-heeled members of society and has kept its popularity with the world’s yachting elite. In light of its lack of cars and commitment to being a ‘private lagoon pleasure city’, chartered psychologist Graham W Price set up ‘Training and Sailing’ holidays in Port Grimaud.
During the one-week holiday, guests will have the pleasure of sailing on a 50 foot Beneteau Oceanis yacht with a qualified skipper. They will sail to the wonderfully exclusive nearby town of Saint Tropez and they will be will inspired by staying in a comfortable ‘fisherman’s Cottage’ overlooking the beautiful Mediterranean Ocean sparkling in the sun.
Graham Price’s holidays ‘Training and Sailing’ holidays in Port Grimaud are designed to enable guests to eliminate stress, regret, worry, frustration, procrastination and a host of other limiting thoughts and feelings.
