In the 1960's a man called Mr Spoerry decided to create a private town built on canals in the Venetian style. What he created, that the public is able to view, is very interesting. The parts open to the public are clean and worth a visit. The church has a modern stained glass window, as well as the crypt of... More

Came here over 30 years ago, still very interesting and well worth a visit. There is a market, and loads of food outlets, and near the church is a small supermarket. There are boat trips to St Tropez, st Maxime, and Frejus

A lovely place to visit with plenty to do and see . Recommend the boat trip to St Tropez. Great bars and cafes in a very relaxed environment . Might be different high season though

This is just an amazing place so beautiful and interesting with every house completely different you could just walk around all day wondering at the the style and architecture. Even though building apparently started in the early 1960s it gives every appearance of being much much older so convincing is the architecture and the way the buildings have weathered. Only...

This year was my second visit to Port Grimaud, it's got all the charm of an old French town despite only being built in the 60s. Its got restaurants and cafes galore, a market twice a week, boat tours of the canals and you can also get a boat taxi to St Tropez from here. We love it and will... More

Very touristique little town where you can stroll around. I think it's the best place to take the waterbus to Saint tropez. So you have no traffic Jams!

Port Grimaud was created from swamp land in several phases from the 1960's onward. Well worth a visit and a tour but it is not a great place to spend a holiday as the actual things to do are limited as are the restaurants and shopping. A better option is to stay in Sainte Maxime a few kilometres away and... More

A great holiday destination. The Sunday market is very French and you can find some great food and clothes. Electric boats for hire will let you explore this cover of Venice a great way to spend an hour during you visit. GO HERE!

Port Grimaud is a town on the sea. It has been described as 'Little Venice' and you can see why! Nice sandy beaches with big waves and a boat to St Tropez. You can also take a 20 minute boat tour round Port Grimaud. There is a medium sized market every Sunday morning.

Thank Jamie B
