Location and orientation
Port Grimaud is nicknamed as such because of the immense lake that shapes its identity. The city is divided into three districts. All are built on the same model but are affiliated to different unions. It is a marina: canals dot the city and allow the houses in the centre to have their crew right in front of their door. It is a fairly recent city, since the first construction plans date back to the 1960s. Nevertheless, it is imbued with the Provençal atmosphere. It has managed to make its place among the other pretty cities of the Var. Its originality has been mixed with local traditions.Where to stay in Port Grimaud
Whether it is Port Grimaud I, II or III, the pretty houses and the distinctive style of the city are also represented. The ideal, of course, is to stay at the port itself. You can enjoy a view of the port and the marina. It is also possible to target the neighbouring community, Port Gogolin, built on the same principle. The small canals irrigate the streets of the port as in Port Grimaud. It is therefore an excellent option to extend your search area. To find more chic accommodation, you can still look in the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, located a few kilometres to the east.
Travellers and activities
Even if Grimaud is a port, the most pleasant way to visit the city with your family is by the little train. It is one of the most popular attractions for families. In three quarters of an hour of commented visit, you have time to discover the different districts of Grimaud aboard a small machine from another time. To enjoy an ice cream with your family, head for the Port Grimaud I district. This is where the central square, called the Place des Artisans, is located. There are also various shops and the traditional market.Port Grimaud for lovers of idleness
Port Grimaud is a paradise for those who like to laze, stroll and rest. To sunbathe, head for Grimaud Beach. It is located on the side of Port Grimaud III. It is a pretty little beach where, if you want to get out of your torpor for a few hours, you can try windsurfing. You can also go further to enjoy very beautiful beaches. After the port of Saint-Tropez, we discover magnificent stretches of fine sand in Pampelonne for example. And of course, if you have a marine soul, there is nothing better than renting a boat to discover the Mediterranean.
Port Grimaud does not only inspire holidaymakers. It has also inspired great film directors of the New Wave movement. Chabrol, Girault and Rego each made a film there.
