We will drive from Nice to Gruissan near the Spanish French Boarder and will spend a week. Below is text from their website

Gruissan  is an old fisherman's village with it's Barberousse tower. The spell of Gruissan comes from the magnific landscape which surrounds this little town. Here you can choose between large sanded beaches, wooded massifs and lakes. It's the only combination on the Languedoc coast. In addition you can discover the exceptional wealth of the faun and the flora !

Today Gruissan is also a particulary attractive seaside resort with its pubs, nightclubs and its casino and proposes many interesting sporting and cultural activities : bathe, bronzing, beach volley, fun board, shows, guided visits, escape by night, pedestrian excursions.


We will drive from Gruissan to Bordereaux and will spend Saturday to Wednesday there and then we will drop the car off and will take the train to Paris. We will fly home the next day. Below is text from their website
