The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Renowned for coastal towns dotted along the Azure coastline forming ‘The French Riviera’ and its mild climate, the Var region is one of the most famous ,sought after destinations for visitors to France. It includes Saint Tropez, Sainte Maxime and several charming inland villages such as Grimaud Village, La Croix Valmer, and Gassin.
This region has so much to offer, from exquisite food, superb countryside and stunning beaches, to a wide range of sporting, watersports and Equestrian activities. The Bay of St Tropez has it all: From rustic markets to glamorous beaches and buzz of International Celebrities to to tranquil, serene surroundings offering excellent WALKS along the coastal bays and hills, the region provides for every vacation style.
Nestled in the heart af the Maures Mountains and bordering the Gulf of St. Tropez, Grimaud has maintained its medieval character. The village is very appealing with its paved and flowered streets winding about all the way from the Romanesque church to the ruins of the feudal castle. While exploring the village you will see beautiful old houses that have been superbly renovated.
Grimaud sits on the hillside in the midst of fabulous views. Further down to the coast, yau can visit Port Grimaud, the little Venice imagined by François Spoerry. Located just over a kilometre from our Villa, the Grimaud Chateau has fantastic views of the Bay of St Tropez on one side and the Massif des Maures on the other with its Domaines and Vineyards. It is worth a visit to the local wine cooperative (VIGNERONS DE GRIMAUD) to taste the famous Rose and wines ....... at unbelievable prices & of course The Fleamarket on sundays where you can get anything but a bargain.
The famous St. Tropez market is a must and you can 'people watch and celebrity spot' whilst sitting at one of the many port side cafes or brasseries. There is the Nualage or big ships race in October, the Bravades, The Film Festival in Cannes, the famous 'Corniches' and Monaco Grand Prix in May, all just 1 hour away, and many summer Festivals.
The Chestnut Fair is celebrated in La Garde Freinet in October whilst Christmas in St. Tropez is a delight with the silver lights threaded through the plane trees in the Place des Lices. Nearby Cogolin, Ste. Maxime, La Croix Valmer and medieval village church of Gassin ( Mick Jagger & Bianca were married there) or as far as Eze& Nice with markets Of Ventimiglia in Italy are within reach by car or boat immediately across the border.
