The views from the large terrace are stunning looking down onto the ancient castle of Grimaud in the distance and over forests and vineyards beyond towards St Tropez, Gassin and the sea.

The village has several restaurants and bars, a twice weekly market, 2 butchers, 2 boulangeries, 2 small supermarkets, art galleries and other picturesque shops.
