We went a few times during our stay to this little village. The market is there on a Sunday and is half food and half clothing. There are about 20 shops and 20 restaurants inside the walled village. The village is very old, looks like it's been restored into now expensive, quaint homes on a river canal system. Pedestrians walk... More

this was originally a swamp area transformed by a gentleman who had visited Little Venice in Florida. Mainly pedestrian with water taxis throughout and along to St. Tropez. Ideal for cyclist as there are miles of safe tracks all along this coast. We cycled to St. Maxine on market day. Beautiful sandy beach and every type of food outlet imaginable... More

We've been to Port Grimaud about 8 times over the years and it never fails to make me smile and long for a little waterside apartment to escape to myself. I don't know the full history about this charming place but understand it was the vision of one man to transform a marshland into what is now a stunning village.... More

Charming little village! I suppose it's the French version of Venice. A boat trip is mandatory, it's just such a beautiful sight to see. There are lots of ice cream places, which is a big plus. Some restaurants are rather slow with their service, we waited 15 minutes then left to find an other place. You won't find lots of... More

We were very lucky to have done a house swap here and with that we got a speed boat, lucky us! I really do suggest that somehow you see this town by boat, not just by foot. Only disappointment was that there are only tacky tourist shops, nothing classy at all and the markets have practically no food...we were hoping... More

It's charming, for a day. Take some photos, get an electric boat, leave. The service in the restaurants and the food is shocking. The beach is nice but so crowded in August.

A relatively new village compared to many in the area having developed during the late 1960's. It is, however, a very pretty one with its pastel coloured houses (each with yacht moored outside!). We visited during 38 degree temperatures and there was little escape from the sun although there is a particularly good ice cream shop as you enter the... More

We visited on a couple of occasions during the day when temperatures were up to 38 degrees. Very pretty streets and waterfront properties with a lovely beach area. They do have market days that attract loads of tourists but it's also a good place to people watch or enjoy a cool drink while watching the multi millionaires mooring their boats... More

Port Grimaud is a place you have to visit in the evening when you are in the surrounding. It is nice to walk through the streets and look at all the ships that are there. Nice shops and restaurants to visit.
