Grimaud is a village of 4000 souls in the Var department of the French Côte d'Azur between Saint-Tropez and Sainte-Maxime and is also known for its healing climate. The village consists of the parts Beauvallon, Saint-Pons-les-Mures, Grimaud-Village and Port-Grimaud, the latter being built in 1968 on the basis of plans by the Alsatian architect François Spoerry. Port-Grimaud resembles a modern Venice in terms of architecture and is therefore also a tourist attraction in its own right, whose charm unfolds particularly during a boat trip.Locomotion on site

Nevertheless, it is advisable to either arrive with your own vehicle or to book a rental car in order to fully explore the beauty of the Côte d'Azur and to be as flexible as possible. You can also visit the high society town of Saint-Tropez on a boat trip starting from the port of Port-Grimaud.

If you are looking for a little more action with the little ones outside the holiday apartment, you can also pay the local kart track an extensive visit and discover the racing driver between the piles of tyres and the smell of petrol. Who knows, maybe one of your children is the next Michael Schuhmacher?

Top travel tips
The castle high above the village is the landmark of Grimaud and looks back on an eventful history, because even before the castle was built by the Grimaldi family in the 11th century, the Celtic people settled on the rocky spur. Once at the top, however, you can not only admire the ruins of the main tower and the up to seven metre high ring wall, but also enjoy the view of the hills of the Moorish Mountains lined with cork oaks, chestnuts and pine trees.2nd Stand Up Paddling at Port Grimaud Beach
The Port-Grimaud Beach borders directly on the village and invites with its fine sand and the azure blue water for bathing. If you don't feel like building sand castles or swimming, you can either relax under a parasol and enjoy the view over the Mediterranean Sea or try Stand Up Paddling. Thanks to the low waves, the conditions at Port-Grimaud Beach are optimal.3. Celebrations in Saint-Tropez
If you travel without your children or have someone to look after the little ones in your holiday home, you should definitely make a detour to the high society stronghold of Saint-Tropez, only 12 kilometres away. Especially the beach bars and the nightlife should not be missed, because who knows which star or little star you happen to run across with a cocktail in your hand?
