Port du Roy is the new Port Grimaud !!!

The soon to be completed Port du Roy development in Aigues Mortes has been flagged by some as the new Port Grimaud. Is this true? I think it could well be.

The two developments are basically the same. In fact, I have it on good authority that the principal architect behind the Port du Roy was a studying architect working on Port Grimaud many years ago.

Both are marina developments made up of traditionally styled houses/cottages with roof terraces and small gardens with moorings at the bottom. This gives a really nice canal like feel to the marinas rather than just line after line of pontoons with boats moored up.

While Port Grimaud is located on the Cote d'Azur not far from Saint Tropez, the Port du Roy marina is located in the heart of the Languedoc region of France, not far from Montpellier.

As the Port du Roy nears completion I can really see it taking shape. Trees have now been planted and a reasonable number of people have moved in.

There are even some houses to rent in Port du Roy that have come to the market and will be ready for this summer.

Moorings are up to about 13m in length although if you have a longer boat then a villa to buy in Port du Roy or a villa to rent in Port du Roy could suit as these come with 15m moorings.

All in all I think that this development is great and I really look forward to seeing it living and breathing when 100% of the houses have been delivered to their lucky owners and all the green areas have been planted. There's even going to be a Port du Roy bar/restaurant situated on the Quai d'Honneur marina.

Whatch this space for further updates.
