This family holiday home is a 3 bedroom 2-storey Provençal villa located at the entrance to the beautiful Medieval village of Grimaud, with private terrace and close proximity to the communal swimming pool. This is an ideal setting for anyone who loves the tranquil countryside of the Var region but wants to be within easy reach of the sea and coastal resorts, as well as within walking distance of some excellent bars and restaurants and most amenities.

The landscaped gardens include a generously sized pool, and the views of the surrounding countryside, from both the pool and the villa, are stunning.

Grimaud is situated on a hill overlooking the gulf of St Tropez and the Maures mountains. It lies 4km from the sea and only 15 minutes from St Tropez. Surrounded by rolling mountains and gorgeous pine forests on one side, and the Gulf of St Tropez on the other, Grimaud is located on the “Route des Vins”. It is a popular location due not only to its surroundings and proximity to famous coastal resorts such as St Tropez, St. Maxime, Nice and Cannes, but also to the 11th Century castle and surrounding bougainvillea hung cobble streets.

Within a 15 minute drive there are some of the best beaches on the coast, including Pampelonne and Croix Valmer, while the fabulous Beauvallon golf course is only 15 minutes away. There are plenty of family activities in the area, e.g. horse riding, cycling , walking, playground, tennis & basketball court, and a water park located 2 km outside the village nestles in the surrounding hills and pine forest.

In the village of Grimaud there are several local restaurants, a hairdresser, excellent boulangerie and equally good patisserie, children’s playground, tennis court, football pitch, pharmacy and post office. The nearest supermarket is located just down the road on the way to Cogolin (still within walking distance if you only need a few things).

Grimaud – the village

Lots of local information is available in the house and also at the tourist office just a short walk from the villa.


Le Patissier du Chateau – local village baker in the centre of Grimaud open from 7am till 8pm for fresh bread, baguettes and delicious patisserie and savouries.

La Fournee Grimaudoise - another local boulangerie open Tuesday to Saturday.


Intermarche - on the road to Cogolin

Geant - at Gassin, between Port Grimaud and St Tropez

Leclerc in Cogolin

Grand Frais - for excellent fresh fruit and vegetables (a bit like Waitrose)


There are so many good restaurants in Grimaud, all within walking distance, that you’ll be spoilt for choice! These include:

Le St Joseph - run by two young Italians

Bar Clem - good value Brasserie food

Fleur du Sel - a tiny restaurant serving excellent food outdoors

Les Santons - more pricey but high quality rich French food


There are several from the village, for example:

Le Pierredon - trough a charming valley bordered by olive trees

The Footpath of the Fairy Bridge - see turtles and maybe even the Diane, a protected butterfly.


From the electric boats you can hire to travel round the canals of Port Grimaud, to Kayaking, yachting and speed boats.


Grimaud - every Thursday morning.

St Tropez - Saturday and Tuesday mornings


Le Club 55 - book in advance to enjoy a superb meal while you do some celebrity spotting!

Gassin - old historic medieval hill-top town; great restaurants and spectacular views from the village.

Ramateulle - nice old town further along the same road as Gassin

Bormes le Mimmosa - beautiful town about 30mins away. Well signposted - take the N98 in the direction of Toulon. Take right hand turn at top of mountain and follow signs. Very picturesque drive over hills. Lots of shops, bars and restaurants.

Cogolin – Great market town with plenty of restaurants. Possibly the most accessible for supermarket shopping at Leclerc, on the main road (N98) as you drive past Cogolin along the by-pass. The old part is worth discovering.

Port Grimaud - very pretty marina, reminiscent of Venice, with shops & restaurants. There’s a ferry from here to St Tropez - worth doing to avoid the traffic.


We really enjoy visiting the local vineyards in the region and some of the local wines are excellent. The area mainly produces Rose, but there are also some really excellent local reds and whites.

In particular the area around l’Estagnol beach and travelling along the coast road from Bormes to Le Lavandou is really stunning countryside.

Château Bregancon

Château Louebe

Château Ott

Château Minuty (also has a retaurant) on the road to Ramatuelle has really excellent local wines as does St Maur, and Domaine Siouvette.

Restaurants in nearby La Mole

“Auberge de La Mole” – A famous and excellent restaurant!

About Zoe Egerton

I and my two children live in Brighton. I grew up in north London (when it was a little less crowded!) but love living on the South Coast, where there is plenty to see and do for all of us. We divide our time between the South coast of Brighton and that of France. As we previously lived in France and my children were born there, we feel very much at home in Grimaud.

Why Zoe Egerton chose Grimaud

I and the children have come to Grimaud and the local area for many years and love the scenery, warm temperatures, the smell of the pines and the local food and wines. Positioned up on the hill, Grimaud benefits from the most fabulous views, as well as many hours of sunshine each day, and everything we need is close by.

What makes this villa unique

This villa is ideal for us. It's set within beautifully maintained gardens, away from the street, so it's quiet, and we have parking (a bit of a luxury in Grimaud). We can nip round to the swimming pool at any time or simply relax on the terrace and enjoy the view until well into the evening, while the local patisseries for fresh baguettes and croissants are just around the corner. There is even a lift up to the top level of the village to save you the steps!

Perfect safe location at the foot of the village with fabulous views.

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a safe location with fabulous views over the hills and vineyards with a good size communal pool. The house was tastefully decorated and very clean and had everything required for our stay. Grimaud and the surrounding villages are all worth visiting with many excellent restaurants and markets. We woukd highly recommend this house to anyone wishing to visit this area and we will definitely be returning.

wonderful family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week with our two girls (8 and 10) at Zoe's lovely holiday house. The interior is very tasteful and stylish, yet with a really relaxed touch. The kitchen was very well equipped for real cooking. The three bedrooms in crisp white were very comfortable and the en-suite bathrooms highly convenient.

The highlight was certainly the vast terrace overlooking a beautiful valley. The perfect place to start and end the day.

We enjoyed trips to the beaches and to nearby St. Tropez and Port Grimaud and often went for a stroll through Grimaud (very picturesque). On coming home we also appreciated the spacious swimming pool, which is shared by the owners of the neighbouring properties but was never crowded.

Our stay was perfectly organized and prepared by the proprietor.

All in all a truly special place to which we hope to return soon.

Delightful and peaceful with fab terrace and pool

  • 5 of 5

A gem of a house in a quiet residential area. Nicely furnished inside with a cozy and friendly ambience. It has a wonderful large terrace with comfortable seating and great views over the countryside. A great bonus is the swimming pool for residents only. Not only are there sunbeds to relax on, but a nice size pool, maybe 20m, if you like swimming, as I do. Great restaurants in town within walking distance and large supermarkets a short drive away. A delightful holiday accommodation. Property was beautifully clean. Nice information booklet on local amenities.

Grimaud, itself, is a beautiful medieval village with several excellent restaurants and bars for you to enjoy, all only a walk away along Bourgainvillea festooned cobbled streets.

At the top of the hill is the famous castle dating back to before the 11th Century. There is also a folk museum, St Michael's Church and three chapels for you to visit. A choice of 3 footpaths lead out from the village, as well as the Valley of the Fairy Bridge.

The Petit Train is also a delightful way to view the village - very popular with children!

Just down the road you have the picturesque Venetian style Port Grimaud, with lovely sandy beaches, restaurants and the St Tropez ferry.

Within a 15 minute drive are some of the best beaches on the coast, as well as plenty of family activities for you to enjoy: Horse riding, cycling, playground, tennis and basketball court and a water park nestling in the surrounding hills and pine forest. There is also yachting, kayaking and paddle boating if you prefer a more aquatic pastime.


There are several local markets - St Tropez has one every Saturday morning. In the many tiny streets leading up to this, you'll also find many tempting designer boutiques, cafes and restaurants.

Places to Visit:

Gassin - old historic medieval hill-top town with great restaurants and spectacular views.

Bormes - le Mimmosa - beautiful town about 30 mins away by car with a very scenic drive over hills, offering many shops, bars and restaurants.


Visiting these is a lovely way to pass the time as there are some excellent local vineyards. The area mainly produces Rose but there are inevitably some superb reds and whites as well. You could try Chateau Bregancon, Louebe and Ott, all situated in the area around l'Estagnol beach along the coast road. Otherwise there is Chateau Minuty, on the road to Ramatuelle, or St Maur and Domaine Siouvette.

Within the property you'll find lots more information about sites to see and activities to take part in.
