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.
Lost in the heart of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, Vallon du Pont des Fées is a little piece of nature in the peace and quiet.
You can see an old aqueduct there, built between the 16th and the 17th century, which was able to supply the village of Grimaud with water. This bridge is a typically Provençal construction.
A 1.5 kilometre foot path is marked out in the valley. It can be completed in one hour, walking.
A veritable haven of peace in the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, this botanical garden extends over 3 hectares and features no less than 60 different plant varieties. Visitors can discover palms, arbutus, cypresses, pines and other plants typical of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region. This wooded park is the ideal spot for a family outing, featuring marked trails or guided tours for children and adults.
