Sounds like a great trip you have planned. Never done more than 10 nights. No problem packing for two though. :wink:

Enjoy :driving: and be sure to post lost of pics on your return, if not during. :thumbsup:

Not sure how close to the town you are at Saint tropez- but if you are out to the east of the bay it can be easier to park in Set Maxime and take the water taxi across the bay- the road into the town can be gridlock .

Have a good day either way
