It's like Venice in France

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.

We visited Port Grimaud primarily to get a ferry across to St Tropez but we were advised it is worth a visit in its own right. Locally described as the Venice of the French Riviera I can see why as houses with moorings are built around a series of canals leading out of the port. There are several small shops,... More

Great harbour and a good service to Saint Tropez for 12 euro return adults. Nice to look at the private yachts moored up. Little market twice a week. Take a electric powered small boat round the waterways. 25 euro for 30 mins. A few restaurants and ice cream places to choose from. Petanque played in the little square.
