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.

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

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.

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

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.

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
