The Sainte-Anne Chapel was built in the 17th century in Saint-Tropez to thank God for sparing the region from the plague which struck Provence at this time. From the chapel you can enjoy an exceptional panorama of the bay, and its fine sandy beaches. Its minimalist architecture highlights the building in the context of the natural setting.
Surrounded by cypresses, pines and oaks, this chapel overlooking the sea and the landscape lulls the visitor with its peaceful, almost mystical atmosphere set in the perfumed countryside of Provence.
Port Grimaud is a small port village, attached to the town of Grimaud. With its suspended bridges, its boats and its canals, Port Grimaud is like a little French Venice.
The town was listed in 2002 as part of the Heritage of the 20th century. It was designed in 1966 by François Spoerry, in private condominium lots.
Port Grimaud is a kind of small river labyrinth, at the heart of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez.
The Musée du patrimoine is based in a village house, a former forge and the former oil mill, dating back to the 16th century.
The collections retrace the lives of yesteryear and this part of the Massif des Maures. The activities associated with the cork industry, the production of olive oil, the exploitation of the forest, as well as the production of wine are therefore represented.
The recreation of the living room, bedroom and barn, a traditional set-up for dwellings in the villages like Grimaud, is also a testament to the old-fashioned way of life.
Saint-Tropez owes its reputation as a charming spot to its port. Located in the heart of the village, Saint-Tropez port is one of the most popular halting points in the Mediterranean.
Strolling along the harbour, you'll come across both small boats and imposing yachts, one more luxurious than the next. The traditional village festivals, numerous shops and terraces make the port of Saint-Tropez a lively place indeed.
During the balmy summer evenings, the yachts host lots of exclusive parties. So be sure to don your best party gear for a night out to remember in St. Tropez!
