Grimaud is a Medieval perched village overlooking the bright blue bay of the Golfe de Saint Tropez, dominated by the striking ruins of the 11th-century chateau at the top of the village. The village is situated at the Mediterranean edge of the Massif des Maures, forested hills that stretch southwest to Pierrefeu-du Var and Hyères and northeast towards Frejus.
The interior of the village is neatly restored, but not overly so, in spite of its close proximity to the highly popular and wealthy area around Saint Tropez 10 km away. Grimaud is actually considered the richest village in the area, quite a claim considering the area, with houses being bought by people of all nationalities for whom money is no problem. the commune doesn't have to beg for upkeep funding.
Some of the houses are 15th and 16th century. Many of them have the ancient-style stone walls. A fair amount of green decorates balconies, tiny gardens and house fronts. Bougainvillier is everywhere.
There is a 17th century windmill on a low hilltop just to the north of the main village hill (a short walk from the center, just past the cemetary). Called the "Moulin de la Gardiolle" in the 17th century; this wheat mill was one of several mills in the area during the Middles Ages. The stone tower and wooden blades were renovated in 1990 by the "Compagnons du Tour de France", and looks quite complete and authentic.
The history of Grimaud was first recorded in 1119 as Grimal, from the Grimaldi family, currently known as the rulers of Monaco.
Sports, such as biking, VTT Mountain Biking, Diving, hiking and Golf and many others are readily available

Raised in San Francisco California and resident of Switzerland since 1964. Having retired we spend most of our time in the south of France in the village of Grimaud, near St.Tropez. We have traveled extensively all over the world and happy to share some funny moments. I speak English, French, Spanish and Italian. My wife is English from the North of England. The other member of our family is BiBi, our Cairn terrier, my other constant companion.
