About
L'Eglise St François d'Assise, réalisé par l'architecte François Spoerry, créateur de Port Grimaud, est née en 1966 tout comme la cité lacustre. Inspirée par les église des Saintes Marie de la Mer, ses vitraux ont été réalisés par Victor Vasarely : ils représentent les phases du soleil : de son lever à son coucher. Pour un euro vous pouvez monter sur son toit et admirer la plus belle vue sur Port Grimaud.

Built by Spoerry as part of the Port Grimaud developement, this is a modern building with no architectural merit for me. Others who like modern architecture will disagree! Non sectarian....Cof E and RC services throughout the year. Big plus is the view from the tower...2 euro entrance.

Great View
Sep 2018 • Friends
It only costs 1 euro to walk to the top of the church tower and you get great views over Port Grimaud.
The church is simple inside, but worth a visit.

Superb view for 1 Eur

We loved the whole village like Venice. We used ship-shuttle from Sainte-Maxime.
The view from the tower is great.

Simple, tranquil church
May 2018 • Couples
A simple, tranquil church in a beautiful setting. Escape the opulence and materialism of the marina for quiet contemplation. When we visited they had exposition on Wednesday at 1730 followed by Mass at 1830. Mass was also on Saturday at 1830.

Nice views of Port Grimaud from the tower
Sep 2017 • Couples
The church is very minimalistic compared to most churches in the south of France, but the highlight of the visit is the view of Port Grimaud from the tower on the top of the church

Thank you for your comment about St Francis Church. This church is quite new, only 51 years old, it's maybe why you did not find the charm of oldest churches ;) Hope you enjoyed the view at the top ! See you soon Grimaud Tourisme

Wonderful monumnet to Spoerry
Sep 2017 • Couples
This little church is the resting place of Francois Spoerry, the architect who designed it and the surrounding marina/town of Port Grimaud. Beuatiful modern stained glass windows colour the interior, which is cool and welcoming on a hot day.

Well worth the trip to the top of the tower, But do it during the day and again at night to take in the lights over the bay.

Wedding

We were lucky enough to attend a wedding here & it was fabulous.
The church is simple but beautiful.
Once the ceremony was over the wedding party then exited onto the boats with a tour of the canals.

Climb the spiral staircase to get a magnificent view of Port Grimaud. Spend a few minutes in the church afterwards in gratitude for being able to visit Port Grimaud
