The Les Prairies De La Mer campsite has it all for the value seeking holiday maker such as myself. Numerous travel companies use this site for those who wish to travel by coach, or those like myself who prefer to drive myself.
The campsite is very cosmopolitan, and has a very wide range of static luxury caravans, tents, and also caters for the travelling camper.
The site is adjacent to the port of Grimuald (Frances Venice - in a small way). The town itself offers great restaurants, small local shopping, nice friendly bars, and has a great market square to play Boulles with the locals.
It also has a market day each week selling wonderful French produce.
From the campsite you can walk onto the beautiful sandy beach and sit at the beach bar that is actually on the beach, (great to sit, drink and pass the day away).
Locally you can reach St Tropez by foot and back in the day, but don't expect too much from this iconic place of worship for the rich and famous. I have been there over twenty times and very seldom see anyone famous. If the high life is what your looking for take a day trip to Monaco, here you will see the rich and famous, be amazed by the casino square, walk (about 40 minutes) the F1 race circuit route, and visit the palace, and you will never want to leave.
Another great place to visit is St Raphael where the night life is great with an open air market that stretches the whole of the sea front every night.
If it's a fright you want then take a trip up into the Gorge de Vernon, where the views are breathtaking, and the mountain road is as scary as any roller coaster you have ever been on, and when you get to the bottom of this gorge you will find the most enchanting lake of turquoise blue you have ever seen.
There are also many places for the family to visit such as Sea World at Antribes (Killer Whales), Aquatica at St Raphael (water world), and the Zoo at St Raphael, which is as natural and rustic as any zoo I have visited.
All in All this holiday has only one drawer back, and that is the 9 hours drive down and back to the South of France, but well worth it in the end.
