Outdoor Dining Area
Set on a hilltop near a beautiful national park, pass winding and sometimes steep lanes through oak forests and vineyards to reach your secluded paradise. This is the best of both worlds with such a stunning natural setting yet under half an hour from the glitz of Saint Tropez and the Côte d'Azur. It’s under a ten-minute drive through the vineyards to the picturesque local village, a charming place with an air of authenticity as you mingle with locals at the bi-weekly market or pick up essential supplies from the boulangerie and green-grocers. There’s a variety of restaurants for dining out as well as a large supermarket just outside the old town. Check out what summer festivities or special markets may be taking place during your stay. Head south towards the coast and spend time in the fashionable fishing village of Saint Tropez (18km), just half an hour away by car (or you could pick up a ferry from Port Grimaud to avoid the summer traffic in August). Spend the day exploring its medieval lanes, admiring the traditional fishermen’s cottages, wandering around the glitzy boutiques or fine dining in its high-end restaurants. Of course, Saint Tropez’s well-known Pampelonne Beach (24km) is a great place to bathe in the sun, partake in a number of watersports and visit one of the exclusive beach clubs such as Club 55. Sainte-Maxime (20km) also has a lovely beach, especially popular with families or visit one of the closer beaches in the bay of Saint Tropez such as Plage de Grimaud and Cogolin Plage, around 13km away. Then there’s the enchanting hilltop villages such as Grimaud (10km) with its flower filled lanes, excellent restaurants and magical views as well as historic Gassin (14km) and Ramatuelle (20km). La Croix Valmer coastline is also a great area of beauty with its diverse flora and fauna, idyllic beachside restaurants and wonderful walking trails. Away from the Côte d'Azur, follow the winding lanes inland to reach the characterful village of La Garde-Freinet (16km) in the heart of the Massif des Maures. Explore its historic lanes and sample some of the chestnut delights made from the surrounding woodland. It’s a walker’s paradise here with plenty of marked trails and hikes, as well as mountain biking opportunities.
