Photo: Port Grimaud Castle Ruins France

The old Castle Ruins still guards the village of Grimaud in the Var region of Provence, France, Europe.

Four miles south-west of Saint Tropez travelers will find the relatively new town of Port Grimaud. This small town was the brainchild of architect Francois Spoerry who in the 1960's developed the Gisele River marshland into a boat owners paradise.The original village of Grimaud in Provence, France is a few kilometers farther inland situated on a hill.

William the Good rewarded him with the land and presumably Grimaldi built the castle. The ruins of this castle of feudal times is now partially restored. Other ancient places to visit in Grimaud village in Provence, France is St. Michael's Church and the Fairy Bridge at St. Roch Chapel. The winding streets of the village still maintain the medieval atmosphere and the houses have been restored with painstaking care. ... continue below the picture...
