Explore the contemporary village of Port Grimaud, whose winding canals resemble Venice, and ascend to atmospheric medieval Grimaud on this tour of contrasts. You’ll enjoy a leisurely drive along the coast to waterfront Port Grimaud, a pedestrian-friendly village designed in the 1960s to evoke Venice by means of its intricate network of canals. During your visit, you’ll delight in arched bridges spanning the narrow waterways and colorful homes built to the water’s edge. Travel to Grimaud, a hilltop hamlet that has lovingly retained its feudal character. Behold the ruins of an 11th-century château that overlooks the Gulf of Saint-Tropez and discover the heart of the village, a warren of narrow streets lined with beautifully restored 15th-century houses. Pass historically significant dwellings that are painted in pastel colors and feature unusual door frames carved from black lava. You’ll agree the town’s ancient fountains, wrought-iron balconies adorned with bright flowers and centuries-old churches make it seem as if time has stood still.
