Superb apartment with balconies for shade or sun.

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment for a base whilst visiting the St Tropez area. Fine food and drink in the restaurants in the Square below.

Water Taxi to Port Grimaud 1 and then on to St Tropez a terrific benefit.

Would thoroughly recomend and hope to visit again.

A nicely presented apartment in the heart of Port Grimaud let down by unreliable broadband

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was clean, tidy and comfortable and we found the entry process easy and instructions were good. We know the area well having owned a house in Cavalaire for nine years and stayed in Port Grimaud before and the apartment is well positioned though I expect the bedrooms which overlook the square could be noisy in the peak season. Our only frustration was the unreliable wifi and for people for whom this is important this would be a real problem.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We were pleased you enjoyed the apartment and found the check in process easy. With regard to the Wifi when you contacted us we asked a caretaker to go in and look at this, he could not see an obvious reason for the poor connection but he has reported this and steps are in hand to rectify the matter. Kind regards Diane

Fantastic Base

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this area for a number of years stopping in our caravan but after getting rid of the caravan and holidaying in the UK we found ourselves missing France.

Found the apartment and from the start communication with Diane was spot on and booking was easy and straightforward.

We arrived at the Apartment and had no idea how big Sud Grimaud was after only previously venturing as far as the centre of Port Grimaud.

We were amazed at the views from the balcony of the apartment and spent every morning having our breakfast on the balcony, having the Boulangerie underneath was so handy and too tempting. Croissants for breakfast, baguettes to take to the beach and for a treat the Strawberry tarts are to die for.

The apartment was equipped with everything we needed for a relaxing stay. The beds were comfy, the air conditioning was a godsend and the bathrooms were lovely, no problem with hot water despite having two people showering at the same time.

The washing machine played up whilst we were there but Diane sorted it straight away and within two days there was a new one fitted.

The square comes alive at night and we had a meal at La Caravelle which is recommended.

We walked to the beach the first couple of days but then opted for the water taxi which took us straight there a much more luxurious way to travel especially in the heat.

Lovely short walk to Port Grimaud where you can boat spot on the way and dream about owning one !.

A visit on the petit train to old Grimaud is recommended and a trip on the ferry to St Tropez a must.

Would have no hesitation about returning to the apartment again.

Many thanks for a superb base in a fantastic area.

We had a wonderful week in Port Grimaud it lived up to our expectations, everybody was so friendly and you felt very safe.The apartment was very clean and was equipped with everything you could need for your holiday. Beds were very comfy enabling a good night's sleep and waking up to the smell of fresh bread from the boulangerie below, ideal for breakfast!

We downed many glasses of wine on the balcony which still had the sun in the evening, it was so peaceful. Breakfast was taken overlooking the square which got the sun throughout the morning. Diane provided us with passes for the water taxis which we used many times, especially as the men love boats and there is certainly not a shortage here. They even had to take a catamaran out from the beach.

We had a lovely meal at the old hilltop village of Grimaud which is certainly worth a visit. We usually finished our evening with a coffee and cognac at the bar/restaurant which was also the boulangerie below the apartment.

We would not hesitate to recommend No 15 to anyone, and hope to return. BUT we would drive there next time as we got caught in the French air traffic strike!

2 Happy Couples

A week in beautiful Port Grimaud

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful 2 weeks in Provence, traveling along the coast from Nice to Aix en Provence, with the middle week spent in beautiful Port Grimaud.

Our apartment was just as described...clean, comfortable, well maintained and equipped with everything you would need for your holiday.

Arriving at the end of the season, we found that the local water taxi had stopped running, but this wasn't a problem....it was an easy 5-10 minute stroll in one direction to the beach with glorious views across the bay to St Tropez and St Maxime, and a 10-15 minute stroll in the other direction to the bustling Place du Marche, with its many interesting little shops, cafes, and waterside restaurants, the busy Sunday morning market, and the water taxi across the bay to St Tropez....a much better idea than driving along the busy road and trying to park.

We loved exploring some of the nearby hilltop villages, our favorites being Grimaud and Gassin, where we enjoyed an amazing Sunday lunch at one of the restaurants on the terrace, overlooking the beautiful bay down below us. What a wonderful way to celebrate a special birthday!

The best thing about our time spent in Port Grimaud? Sitting on the balcony with a glass of Côte de Provence Rose in my hand, watching the sun go down!

About Diane Hattersley

We first visited this area on a family holiday over 25 years ago and then returned again 10 years later. What impressed us was the fact it was still a beautiful part of France and unspoilt. We fell in love with Port Grimaud, the stylish architecture and the wonderful central position for the neighbouring towns and villages and all the local amenities. We purchased the apartment in March 2002 and have never looked back. The situation of the apartment gives many dimensions to the property. The beaches within walking distance, the local market, shops, restaurants and patisseries or you can just sit on the balcony with a glass of wine and watch the boat life or the buzz of life coming from the nearby restaurants. We think it has something to offer for everyone.

Diane Hattersley purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Diane Hattersley chose Port Grimaud

There were many reasons for buying this property. We loved the idea of having all the facilities closeby so if necessary we do not have to get in our car and travel anywhere.

The surrounding area has lots to offer sightseeing wise or sport facilities. Great local cycle tracks with cycle hire available locally it is a great way to explore and exercise. The beaches are clean with good restaurant and sunbed facilities.

The range and size of the boats never fails to amaze us there is always something new to see.

The port can be viewed by rental small electric boats or sightseeing water taxis. In the main summer months the water taxi runs from the local jetty taking you to the harbour entrance where you can catch the ferry to St. Tropez.

What makes this apartment unique

One big advantage of the location of the apartment is the two balconies facing different directions. One with the aspect of the marina and boats and the other viewing the Square with restaurants and patissiere. This also works with the sun, it means you can sit and have breakfast in the sun overlooking the Square and then the water balcony has the afternoon sun, or if you prefer you can choose either one for the shade.

With the security gate only allowing residents' cars into the area you find this area is not as busy as the main Port Grimaud Square.

We find once we arrive and relax we do not need to get into our car for days if we so wish.

The patissiere below stocks quite a range of food and drink items.

There is a lift which is useful when you arrive with luggage but also stairs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'We have enjoyed both out visits to this apartment in Port Grimaud. It is situated in an excellent spot overlooking the marina from the balcony and the front aspect viewing the restaurants. It is spacious and has good cooking facilities and two bedrooms plus spacious living accommodation. We loved the water taxi that travelled regularly between the different points at the Port and to the beach and the harbour entrance where the small ferry boats goes to St. Tropez. We will definitely visit again the near future' Mr and Mrs Spar, Derbyshire. 2009

'We arrived late in the evening and greeted in the morning firstly by the waft of freshly baked croissants from the Patisserie downstairs(thoroughly recommended) and then we opened the shutters and met by the wonderful view of Port Grimaud. We couldn't wait to start exploring.

Apartment itself - all the usual conveniences of home, great for alfresco dining.

The important question-would we consider returning-absolutely! Mayhew Family 09.
