The delightful Maison Gimlet enjoys a fabulous, elevated location in the lush pine-clad hills between La Croix Valmer and Gassin. It is peaceful, beautiful and very secluded. La Croix Valmer boasts two of the three caps of the Saint Tropez peninsula, an incredible range of flora and fauna and wonderful hiking and cycling paths. Cap Lardier is the most wooded of the caps, and Cap Taillat sits between Cap Lardier and Cap Camarat, the third of the caps. Visitors enjoy amazing views and can explore the vineyards and historical remains in the area.

The village of La Croix Valmer enjoys a history closely linked to the wine industry. Its weekly market is one of the most famous in the Gulf of Saint Tropez and a brilliant place to pick up local produce and wine for Maison Gimlet. The village hosts cultural events, exhibitions, concerts and festivals throughout the year. There is a small open-air theatre where performances are held during the summer. Free shuttle buses take visitors to the most popular of the nearby beaches, the busiest of which are Gigaro and Debarquement. Gigaro is beautiful, natural and home to cicadas in the thousands and a blissful collection of coves, headlands and bays. Super crystal clear waters and fine golden sand make for fantastic beaches, which are served by a wonderful collection of restaurants and bars. Gigaro boasts magnificent sunsets and superb views of the islands, Iles d’Or.

Gassin is a ‘Plus Beaux Villages de France’ and a destination of culture and walking. Its elevated views extend to the snowy peaks of the Alps as well as the stunning Gulf of Saint Tropez, and from Place des Barri you can enjoy panoramic scenery including the Iles d’Or, Port Cros, Bagaud, Levant and, in the background, Porquerolles. You should look out for the street called l’Androuno, which is claimed to be the narrowest street in the world. The delicious smell of jasmine hangs in the air throughout the village, especially in the garden L’Hardy-Denonain. The new town of Gassin, designed by Francois Spoerry, has been built below the medieval village and was awarded a prize for the best new town in Europe.

Saint Tropez is a sizzling jet-set playground, though in low season, the town still enjoys its mesmerising quaint beauty and visitors meander its cobbled lanes in the old fishing quarter of La Ponche, sip pastis in charming cafes, watch old men playing petanque beneath towering plane trees and walk slowly along the coastal paths. As well as beautiful olive groves and rugged coastal hikes, the pretty peninsula is home to exclusive beach clubs, hipster bars and megabucks yachts.

The town is a shopper’s paradise, packed with trendy boutiques. The streets around Rue Gambetta and Rue Allard are sprinkled with shoe shops, chocolate shops, boutiques, antique emporiums and art galleries. If you visit on a Tuesday or Saturday morning, you will be treated to wonderful open-air stalls at Place des Lices where you can stock up on freshly baked bread and delicious local produce. Fine wine is big in Saint Tropez. Chateau Barbeyrolles is one of the best vineyards in the village of Gassin. Red and white wines have been added to their delicious roses, and visitors can taste and buy wines every day except Sundays.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Maison Gimlet is ideal for a family holiday. It enjoys three bedrooms, an open-plan living space, a wonderful garden with a swimming pool, a boules pitch, and table tennis. The area is fantastic for hiking, cycling and looking out for wildlife. It is also possible to explore these incredible landscapes on horseback with the riding centre near Grimaud. There are wonderful sandy beaches within very easy reach, the nearest of which is Gigaro. Gigaro and Debarquement beaches are organised and enjoy cafes and restaurants, while others are quiet and peaceful. The coastal paths are fabulous and take you from beach to beach. A little further away, the Pampelonne beaches are also exceptional.
Children enjoy the Sunday market in La Croix Valmer, where they can choose what they would like to eat. The village is very lively on market day and there are some lovely restaurants and cafes. During the summer months, children also enjoy the entertainment and performances on offer.
Another favourite is to take the ferry to the island of Porquerolles. It is only a ten-minute boat ride away from the coast. This crescent-shaped island enjoys a charming village at its centre with some lovely restaurants and bike rentals. The best way to explore Porquerolles is by hiking or cycling on the marked trails of the national park. On the southern side, the coast is made up of steep cliffs and secluded creeks while the northern side is a little like a Caribbean island with fine sandy beaches and turquoise water.
One of the most popular outings is to Azur Park in Gassin, with its thirty-five-plus rides and attractions. These include trampolines, carousels, toboggans and many others for little ones, bumper boats, river slides, 5D cinema and plenty of others for slightly older kids and some extreme attractions for teens and older. There are two prehistoric animal-themed 18-hole mini golf courses for four to twelve-year-olds and a great cafe. Make sure to plan ahead before your visit, as the park usually closes during the winter months.
Aqualand Sainte-Maxime is a thrilling waterpark designed with children in mind. It comes with thrilling slides, rides and fun pools for the whole family. Children love the tube slides and open-top slides wide enough for groups to race down. It is located on the other side of the Gulf from Saint Tropez. A few miles north of Saint Tropez is Luna Park Frejus, a seasonal funfair with an array of rides and attractions for kids and adults. You will discover traditional carousels, rollercoasters, bumper cars and a ghost train. Similarly, this waterpark is also closed during the colder months.
In Grimaud, the acrobatic adventure park Grimaud Aventure gets the adrenaline pumping amongst the treetops and fun obstacles. There are climbing ladders, jumps, rope bridges and a zipline, all perfect for children aged three to ten.
In Saint Tropez, you can visit the Citadel above the harbour for its fabulous views all around the bay. You can spot the best houses in the hills and enjoy the scenery. Proud of its rich maritime past, Saint Tropez created a modern maritime museum in the dungeon of the town’s citadel, allowing visitors to discover the daily lives of men and women who shaped the Saint Tropez of today. The town also boasts a butterfly museum, La Maison des Papillons Musee Dany Lartigue, with more than 35,000 butterflies from all over the world. There are rare species from South America and Africa. The museum is just a few steps south of the northern marina.
