We drove from Aix-en-Provence to St Tropez to take a look around. Driving in was a nightmare, the traffic barely moved and there was no parking! After a lot of stress we found ourselves heading slightly out of the city centre. As we drove we passed huge mansions with tennis courts and flashy cars. We attempted to stop on the hill outside some of these fences but weren’t sure where we could or couldn’t stop. We got out to ask a passing jogger, who happened to be a lovely old French man who owned the house we were next to. He told us he had another entrance to his property so we were welcome to park in front of his gate for the day. Parked up, we walked back in to the centre to see what all the bustle was about.
