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.
Head off on a discovery of Grimaud. In an hour's stroll, you can discover its important monuments like the Château dating back to the medieval period, the Church of St Michel and the Chapelle des Pénitents. Yet this walk also invites you to discover numerous cobbled streets and stone houses of the village. It is worth noting that Grimaud offers numerous art galleries to visit.
Bernard Lezoray welcomes you to the intimate and elegant world of the Artagra gallery. He offers you objects of art reflecting his taste for the antique and the beautiful.
You can find paintings there from the 19thth century, the start of the 20thth century and modern ones, as well as sculptures, small items of furniture, art objects and antiques. The choice is yours!
Although Grimaud is a real village for seeing art and ancient monuments, its surrounding area is also worth the detour. The La Castellane route invites you to discover the plains and the areas to the south of the village. In just under an hour, you will be walking on the hills of the village and you can therefore enjoy the view. You start opposite the Musée des Arts et Traditions Populaires.
