Port Grimaud, Cote d’Azur, South of France

Description: Beautiful setting with the town of Port Grimaud, port and beach modelled on Venice. The port area has no less than 12km of quay side! Exclusive shops, bars and restaurants. A must visit place with an unforgettable atmosphere, great for a family day out in the south of France.

Location: Near St Tropez, 30km south west of Fréjus on the N98.

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.
