High on a hill, this labyrinthine walled village with a tree-studded central square got its name from ‘Rahmatu’llah’, meaning ‘Divine Gift’ – a legacy of 10th-century Saracen rule. Jazz and theatre fill the tourist-packed streets during August’s Festival de Ramatuelle and Jazz Fest.
If you follow the road (rte des Moulins de Paillas) up over the hilltop the 2.5km towards Gassin, you'll take in grand views and historic windmills.
The fruits of the peninsula’s vineyards – Côtes de Provence wine – can be tested at various châteaux along the D61; the tourist office has a list of estates where you can taste and buy. Most require an advance RDV (rendez-vous; appointment).
