Quiet Location in Port Grimaud, a charter company as you hope it to be, responsive staff (family business), well maintained boats - I would charter there definitely again
Everything was ready for checkin...went fast. We got our preliminary questions answered. Could have spent more time with GPS plotter. A captain friend took us out of Port Grimaud and gave us many useful tips concerning anchorage and such which came in extremely handy for departure and return to port.
The bali 4.1 is an excellent boat for socializing. It is very spacious and the front areas was excellent for lounging around and sun bathing. Boat was super well equipped, with an inverter and Nespresso coffee machine full fridge freeze. In return for this comfort, it is less of a pure sailing boat. And obviously it does not heel as its a catamaran. Powerful engines give you full control.
South of France is excellent location especially if you want to have one meal a day on shore, Plenty of places to go in one week or two. But clearly ashore is a bit pricy compared to Western med.
Port Grimaud was a good starting point, there is a very large supermarket 2 miles away for provisioning. And the marina is a fun place to be for the last night with restaurants and beach.
The team in the marina, were great and very friendly. Despite my very poor French they were able to give me a full briefing in English.
Boat was super clean in these covid times.
