I'm in Le Lavandou. Anyone near here? It would be nice to start making friends in the area, and learning the language and so on. We're both very social and getting a touch of cabin fever coming on.

Cool. Thanks for your mail Aron. All sound like good places. It only takes us about half and hour to get to Port Grimaud. Sounds like a plan. I'll mail you today.Sean.

Hi,

There are plenty of Brits in Gulf de st trop/Grimaud/Cogolin/Port Grimaud.

Its about 20-30 mins on the costal road from Le Rayol depending if you drive like a native or slower like Micheal Schumacher. 

3 main venues for an evening out. 

1. La Boheme 3 places de six canons, port grimaud, A friendly bar, usually busy around happy hours at 4:00-600 and 9:00 -10:00.  Good sunday lunches.

2. The Lodge - On the road to ST Maxim Opposite POret Grimaud, Live jamming on a friday evening, just turn up and.  Styled similar to a german beer hall with large open fire etc etc.   

3.  Monroes - Traditional english style pub. Don`t frequent myself there too much as I am kept busy in the other 2 :-)  Pool tables, karaoke etc.

4. Utopie - Live music regularily - in Port Cogolin, after La foux round about.  Better for meeting the locals and getting some lingo practice in.

The only upcoming event I know of is La boheme is doing a Vicars & tarts fancy dress evening 9X dressing allowed- apparently) with valetines menu (whatever that is) on 14th Feb.  If you want to hook up give me a shout.
