Your private driver guide will pick you up at the Saint-Tropez cruise terminal at 9am. Begin your tour with a drive along the Gulf of Saint-Tropez towards Port Grimaud, known as the Provencal Venice. This village is classified for its architecture, which was the idea of François Spoerry who envisioned a town built in the manner of Venice with channels of water and traditional French fisherman's houses, each with a personal boat mooring space at the end of the garden. Port Grimaud today is a charming village with an extended development history encompassing attractive Provençal-style houses on a network of canals. The houses are designed to be unique, painted with soft pastel colors of ochre, pink and turquoise and feature shutters with wrought iron balconies with roofs of terracotta Roman tiles. Known as the 'Venice of Provence' and arranged into four little islands, the colorful houses are linked by bridges over the waterways and surrounded by gardens.Your next stop is the town of Gassin, classified as one of France's most beautiful villages. The village has kept its old winding streets and ancient houses. It is a perfect place for lunch (not included in price) with the view overlooking the Gulf of Saint Tropez and the Maures ranges. From the top of the ramparts there is a magnificent view that extends from the Iles d'Or over the Maures Mountains - all the way to the snowy peaks of the Alps.After lunch, if desired, you will visit a local winery where you will taste the rosé wine which is famous in Saint-Tropez. Provence produces most of the French Rosé wine, which is perfect to drink very cold while laying on the sunny beach.Then head off the town of Ramatuelle, that covers the top of the hill. Have a stroll in its pleasant narrow streets which meander around the town in a circular pattern. Near the top is the place Gabriel Peri, formerly called ‘Castle Square’. The main historic sight in Ramatuelle is the church of Notre Dame, built in the 16th century against the protective ramparts. Its bell-tower doubled up as a look-out post. You will discover narrow shady streets, the stone buildings covered in bougainvillea and the stone gateways that once formed part of the town’s defenses. The town looks over the famous white sandy beaches of Pampelonne, heaven of the jet-set in the summer time.At the end of the tour, your guide will drive you back to Saint-Tropez cruise terminal.
