General Info: Office de Tourisme website.
Our recommendations: The medieval village of Grimaud is set slightly inland along the D61. Throughout July and August there are many different activities and festivals held – refer to the tourist office website for details.
For the children: Notwithstanding the atmosphere of this place, there are a huge number of attractions that the children will enjoy from pedaloes at the seaside to hiring a bike to get about. Or if you want a slightly more relaxed outing you could take one of the frequent boat trips around the bay.
