Port Grimaud

Grimaud is a commune in the Var department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France.

It is located on the French Riviera. The village of Grimaud is a perched village, with historical links to the Grimaldi family. Gibelin de Grimaldi aided William the Good drive the Saracens of Fraxinet out of the area in AD 973 and was rewarded with the land. The village is dominated by its 11th century castle (partially restored).

Port Grimaud is part of Grimaud. It is located seven kilometres (four miles) west of Saint-Tropez and seven kilometres south-east of Sainte Maxime. This seaside town was created by architect François Spoerry in the 1960s based around the marshes of the river Giscle on the bay of Saint Tropez. Built with channels in a Venetian manner, but with French "Fishermans" style houses resembling those in Saint Tropez. The mainly traffic free town is popular with boat owners as most properties come with their own berth. The success of the first phase of the development meant that Port Grimaud 2 (extending the town further East) was completed in the 1970s and then again, Port Grimaud 3 was in the 90s. The Church of St Francis of Assisi in the main place d'Eglise contains stained glass by Victor Vasarely.
