Port-Grimaud

At less than 40 kilometres from Esterel Caravaning you’ll find the village the most visited in France : Port Grimaud. Its resemblance with the famous Italian town Venice gives Port Grimaud the nick-name “Provencal Venice”. The Port Grimaud “Cité Lacrusté” was built from scratch and entirely built on canals with bridges that give it its charm.

The village is an exceptional phenomena and a spectacle to see. The canals all function with total autonomy with a cycle of permanent reversal currents: meaning “without artificial pumps”. Port Grimaud is privatised and offers a mooring point for each house. It was in the month of July 1967 that houses stared to be built, all painted in the colours of the south. When the sun goes down the lights from the houses, restaurants and bars reflect onto the numerous canals around the village giving Port Grimaud the allure of a magical place.

Port Grimaud was added to the list of French Patrimony from the 20th century in September 2002. What makes this village special is its unique charm and its proximity to the mythic village of Saint Tropez making it just as famous and popular with tourists.
