The small, perched vilage of Grimaud is a popular tourist destination. It is said to have historical connections with the famous Grimaldi Family. The village of Grimaud is highlighted by an ancient,11th century castle. 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 Grimaud Castle is a great place to visit for all those who admire art, culture, and history.

  • The castle is only minimally restored, I think for a precise choice. Is at the top of the village of Grimaud and, from the top, you have a commanding view to the sea and the Gulfs of Ste Maxime and St Tropez clearly visible. The vestiges are still impressive. The visit is free.

  • Hidden gem just in the inland of the French riviera. We walked around the small medieval streets that bring to the top of the town, where the castle ruins are located. Recommended!
  • Lots of gneiss rocks in and under the castle. Splendid panoramic views. Just keep heading uphill to find it.
  • 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!
  • Had a great day out here apart from the wind almost blowing us off the top
  • Amazing scene. Part ruin part restored that medieval castle offer a great view on the golf of St Tropez. Enjoyable day and night.
