The Grimaud Castle dominated the Gulf of Saint Tropez for years and so the Saint Tropez Gulf was also known as the Gulf of Grimaud until the 19th century. You must visit this castle because of its steep summit, strategic location, and historical annotations dating back to the ancient Gallo-Roman era.

  • The small village of Grimaud is very very nice!! Nice small streets of the medieval old town! The tourist information center provides great maps with all the interesting points to see. A great alternative for a peaceful visit far from the crowd of the coast!
  • Amazing scene. Part ruin part restored that medieval castle offer a great view on the golf of St Tropez. Enjoyable day and night.
  • Great views over St Tropez. Lovely medieval village set high overlooking what was once a Grimaldi stronhold. Learn about their prominence.
  • I love history to the extent of actually touching historical things. When I visit old castles, cathedrals, historical sites it gives me a real buzz. I found Chateaux de Grimaud exciting and interesting at the same time, wonderful place. I shall be looking up it's history on the internet at my first opportunity.
  • Scenic and quaint. Beautiful.
