Cherish an insider’s look into the authentic, serene inland villages of the Saint-Tropez Peninsula on this enlightening tour. You’ll be charmed by Ramatuelle, a village perched atop a hill that boasts wonderfully narrow streets and clusters of age-old fortified homes. In the center of town, find a 17th-century Romanesque-style church and the stirring Memorial to the Resistance. Journey to Gassin and roam winding streets past softly hued buildings set off by contrasting shutters that give the village its definitive Provençal character. However, you’ll agree that its peerless views of the countryside and the Gulf of Saint-Tropez are what truly set Gassin apart from other French villages. Continue on to Grimaud, another hilltop village that has lovingly retained its feudal character. Behold the ruins of an 11th-century château that overlooks the Gulf of Saint-Tropez and explore the heart of the village, a warren of cozy streets lined with beautifully restored 15th-century houses. You’ll long remember this journey to a bygone time in the Saint-Tropez Peninsula’s beguiling mountain villages.
