Flights can be included as part of your package.
You’ll need to book your own transfers when staying here. Your main options are shared or private transfers, but consider whether you would prefer a door-to-door service or a (generally cheaper) “communal” drop-off point at your destination.
Book My Transfers
You’ll need to organise your own bike hire when staying here. Things to consider are the type of bike you want to rent such as road, mountain, hard trail and/or an electric bike; and whether you’ll need helmets and protective clothing with your rental. You’re best off choosing a shop that is close to your accommodation for ease of access, and making it quicker to return the bike and pay at the end. Some companies may also deliver so it’s worth looking at all the options.

Book My Guide/Tour
Grimaud is a beautiful medieval hilltop village to the west of Saint Tropez, offering glorious views of the surrounding countryside and the sea in the distance. Port Grimaud, 5km away on the coast, is a modern town designed in the old Provencal style, with a bustling superyacht marina. To get to the old village by public transport, you can take the train to Saint-Raphael, then hop on the bus to Grimaud St-Pons where you can then change for the line 7702 to Grimaud. Alternatively, in the summer a little tourist train (complete with commentary) runs from Port Grimaud up to the village.)
While the village feels quaint and sleepy, it is also a very wealthy area-meaning, of course, that you're in luck when it comes to dinner-time. Les Santons in Grimaud has been recommended by Raymond Blanc himself, while Fleur de Sel operates a small modern restaurant inside an ancient bakery and the villa at Le Murier offers modern French cuisine with hints of Japanese from its summer terrace. The waterfront at Port Grimaud is also lined with restaurants to wander along and choose between.

Follow the steps up to the ruined 11th century castle, 'Chateau de Grimaud', which was destroyed by Richelieu during the 17th century Wars of Religion. There are commanding views of the countryside and coast from up here. Back in the village the 12th-century Romanesque Saint-Michel is worth a look, as well as the 15th century chapelle des Pénitents Blancs. Just outside the village is an old flour mill with a beautiful restored windmill, or you can head further afield to the ruins of the aqueduct at Pont de Fées.You can also take a walking tour of the village- pick up a pamphlet at the Tourist Office.

Things to Do Nearby
Situated on the edge of the Massif des Maures, Grimaud is in a fantastic spot for outdoor pursuits. The Maures have many hiking and mountain-biking trails which pass by Grimaud, including the long-range hiking trail GR51. From Grimaud village you can also take a short hike to the beautiful ruins of the old aqueduct at Pont de Fees. On summer nights, one of the best activities of the area is to head up to the ruins of the castle, where one section has been transformed into an outdoor theatre with a program of events- including a world music festival 'Les Grimaldines' in July. Down on the coast, Port Grimaud is near the end of the GR9 hiking trail- or you can take a diving excursion to explore the coast underwater. Why not rent a boat for the day and head out on the Golfe de Saint Tropez, stopping at sandy beaches and quiet coves along the way?

The closest beach to Grimaud is at Port Grimaud, where the miles of sandy beaches of the Golfe de Saint Tropez await you.

As you'd expect, there's watersport hire available too.
The closest golf course to Grimaud is the Golf Course de Beauvallon, a well-regarded 18 hole, par 70 course by the sea, while the Golf Club de Saint Tropez at Gassin is also nearby. For more information on local golf courses, consult our golfing pages.
Book My Round
There's not much in the way of nightlife in this perched village except an aperitif at a terrace bar overlooking the Gulf of Saint Tropez. Sounds quite nice to me, but if you're craving an exciting night then Saint Tropez is calling your name. Port Grimaud also has a selection of bars by the waterfront.
