    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!

    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.
