About Michael and Margaret Tindall

We are now retired and live in South London. This is an area we have always held dear and we were fortunate enough to find a property in Port Grimaud which enables us to flee from London, relax and enjoy good food and beaches.

Michael and Margaret Tindall purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Michael and Margaret Tindall chose Port Grimaud

Our apartment is beautifully situated for a wonderful relaxing holiday. We have a manager who looks after the apartment on our behalf and this allows us to ensure that the apartment is kept in excellent order. We are very keen on our apartment and it is for us home from home. It is ideally situated to enable guests to watch boats entering and leaving the Port. Very modern and inviting.

What makes this apartment unique

A modern and extremely well cared for property with linen provided and guests are met on arrival and shown to our apartment. A unique benefit for our guests. Beautiful views from the terrace and within walking distance of two enchanting private beaches. An excellent place for sundowners and within walking distance of some very good restaurants.

A stunning escape to Port Grimaud - a rea gem

  • 5 of 5

On closing the apartment front door you are transported from the hustle and bussle of French life to the truly idilic and picture postcard view of Port Grimaud. The views from the apartment balcony are simply stunning and could easily grace any holiday brochure.

We found the apartment a home from home providing everything anyone would need during their stay. Very clean, comfortable and homely - a perfect base to explore the local area and spectacular coast line.

Within the exclusive Port Grimaud village you will not be disappointed, its water ways, posh water side properties, bars, shops, amenities and resturants will keep the busy and extremely well feed! The 2 private beaches are a must to visit and are within easy walking distance.

Finally everyone we meet was so welcoming and extremely helpful, there appears not to be any language barrier just a shared interest in the good life. A 5 star review for what is a truly wonderful location.

Steve & June

Most Enjoyable Holiday in Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a most enjoyable fortnight in Mike & Margaret's apartment in Port Grimaud. It was like a home from home with all the mod cons. The bed and convertible sofa bed were very comfortable and provided comfortably for the four in our party. The location is very convenient to all amenities yet comfortably away from the very busy spots. There is a lovely view from the patio area. There is secure parking in a locked underground garage which also contains many items for the beach that guests are welcome to use. The apartment is very well equipped and has a good supply of books and games for the very rare wet evening. There are also lots of brochures detailing nearby attractions and the apartment booklet itself is very informative. Of very great convenience are free resident passes to use the water coach service around the resort. The nearest stop is a minute's walk away and it services all the main attractions including two lovely beaches. We arrived late on a Sunday night and we were met by Pam & Ron, who showed us around and made us feel very welcome. They were on hand any time they were needed and provided clean towels and linen at the end of the week. Overall, it was a most enjoyable stay and we intend to return next year.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

A clean and well decorated apartment having everything we needed for a relaxing 3 week holiday. It is in a prime position for either the Port or for touring the area. The private terrace affords a beautiful view over the waterways and the use of the residents water taxi is a wonderful bonus. We appreciated being met by the owners representatives and the delivery of clean linen every week. The owners have given serious consideration as to the comfort of their guests.

Thank you for a lovely holiday, Pam and Ron were very welcoming and helpful when we arrived and the apartment was ideal for the two of us as a great base. It's really good that it is within walking distance of the market square and also the beach. We would love to spend another holiday there and have already recommended it to friends.
