About the property

Apartment in Port Grimaud, Var, Provence-Alpes-Cote DAzur, France - Beautiful Central Serene Location. Beach 200m. Waterside Restaurants. Markets. Boat Hire/Trips 5mins

Just 10mins from the beaches,and the Prarie de la Mer classy 'village',with its exotic palm trees,and lodges, and summer entertainment: with superb views across the water to Saint Tropez,from the chic bar: and mins from a unique stroll to the headland walkway by the marina: and also from a 'Plat Du Jour' or seafood restaurant, or pizzeria,or boulangerie, or a market, or a boat to hire, or just a very relaxing canal waterside walk, is our airy comfortable 1st floor waterside apartment.

Situated in the Chic water town of Port Grimaud, 'floating in Provençal pastel colours, warmed by Cote d'Azur sunshine all year round', it has 24hr security,giving a feeling of safety and exclusivity. PG is a mini-Provencal Venice, with lovely canals, crossed by tiny Rialto style bridges adding ambiance,boats gently meandering underneath them. Also within, it has a small square, embraced by shops and restaurants, where boules is played, and a market is held every Sunday and Thursday,selling the usual Provencal fare, creating a wonderful atmosphere. By the church, at the main bridge, the water taxis leave to chug around the canals,(free to you) or to go to the private beach, which is exclusive to residents,(also free to you as a tenant). Or a cruise to St Tropez, (20mins),which is an absolute must, passing the wondrous yachts, and from where the beaches can be seen in a crescent shape, the area on show sparkling, through the white trail of the blue boat.

We are on the waterside of the square, on the 1st floor of the building. There is a lift. The attraction of the apt is the long balcony, which boasts 2 sets of French doors. One from the lounge and one from the bedroom. It is wide enough to recline upon, or sit or dine at the table, and just watch the boats below, or the people crossing the bridge, photographing the splendid views, or the Venetian style arches, which when lit up at night, are gorgeous, and introduce a warm ambiance into the apt area. Or just see the fish lazily flapping around nosing maybe a piece of bread, in the water, from one of the restaurants above. The sun hits the balcony usually mid morning, but as it moves around it stays, and shines all day lighting up the apt frontage. Easy to lounge on the recliner, and sunbathe. Gradually the evening light becomes slowly exquisite, soft yellow, apricot, peach. Absolutely perfect for an evening glass of chilled pink rose, or beer, with maybe some shell fish, or whatever, bought at the market. And then the atmosphere slowly changes. Just a gentle percolation, as people cross the wooden bridge further down, seeking a restaurant;and the boats continue to meander;and the quiet music drifts.

There is plenty to do locally when staying here. Why not visit St Maxime, with its fantastic beach and marina, or world famous eclectic St Tropez with its opulent yachts and citadel,artists and cobbled pavement bistros,and enjoy its superb atmosphere. There are also plenty of coastal walks, as well, including vineyards to visit,other Provençal markets,and medieval Villages, e.g., Grimaud, Gassin, Ramatuelle,Cogolin, all having superb views across vineyards, and down towards the Mediterranean, with their own unique character. One of the best walks is at la Croix Valmer, at Gigaro beach, with its splendid views, with its nook and cranny inlets. Enjoy a drink at the beach restaurant as the water laps, and similarly at Cavalaire 20-30mins away, great beach, and marina. Relaxing places.

The whole area is a delightful experience. Try it!

Outside: The absolute attraction of the apartment is its balcony, and wonderful views, to the left across the wooden bridge, out to sea, in the middle across to the hills, and to the right, the Provencal Venetian arches, by which the water taxis and other boats constantly cruise by. When the arches are lit up and glowing at night the ambiance is exacerbated enriching the experience of just being on the balcony. Beneath them is Delice, a place to sit and eat or drink, or just have an ice-cream, and reverse the view across to the bridge to the balcony. It is so relaxing, just to be there and to enjoy water life per se:the fish flapping, eating bread are a joy to watch. But relaxing on the balcony is a sumptuous treat, not just the views, but to see the people on the bridge, posing their friends or family, the gentle pace, the tiny boats, and the odd cruise or power boat negotiating around the water taxis. And at night drifting quiet music, from the odd restaurant, not noisy,just charming. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Cleaning is included in the overall price. A FULL Linen & Towel package is extra,& in a sealed unit.2 x D.Sheets/Pillow Cases/2 x Lge Towels/2 x Hand Towels/2 x Tea Towels/ 1 x Bath Mat.

Fantastic Apartment in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is fantastic, very clean and everything you need for a relaxed holiday is in the apartment! Great Shower, washing machine, al fresco dining on the balcony! The location is superb, a stones throw away from the main square, where all the shops and restaurants are situated and I think twice weekly the market, which is great! fabulous food to take home and heat up for dinner on the balcony! ....Thank you for a lovely stay! x

The nearest main beach is Port Grimaud, 10 mins away, from the apt, which has superb views across to St Tropez. It is near Prarie De La Mer 'village', a superb complex of lodges/supermkt/rest/palm trees. PG bay sweeps around, so great for walks. There is also 'Le Petit Plage', a private residents' beach, reached by water taxi, (free to you as a tenant), which cruises past the apt to it. A fantastic experience. Sit at the bar, by a palm tree and watch the boats passing to/from St Tropez.



NICE-99KM.Journey times can vary, especially on the Cote d'Azur in summer, but generally about 1 to 1-1/2hrs, depending on Rd conditions etc.

TOULON HYERES - 50KM. Time about 50mins - I Hr.


Generally staying in PG, a car is NOT needed, if you want to be bolted in a beautiful setting surrounded by water and sand. However the villages are a treat, shame to miss them, although GRIMAUD is accessible by 'Le Petit Train'.
