Bormes-les-Mimosas, Grimaud, Gassin, Saint-Tropez... different and unique


A tour like no other!

The Gulf of Saint Tropez is legend, playground of many celebrities, but mostly a landscape of beauty covered with vineyards, medieval villages and forest.

I invite you to a journey away from the usual tourist traps, with villages scattered in the hills, from Grimaud nested around its medieval castle, to the little piece of heaven which is Bormes-les-mimosas , passing by Gassin and its famous panoramic vista.

Saint-Tropez itself is iconic and a "must see".
With me you will see the real village: the Ponche which looks like Liguria, the gorgeous old town and the place des lices, where the heart of the authentic St Trop isstill beating.

My secret to enjoy the area of Saint Tropez is to discover it through the back streets where Provence is magnified at every second ; this is how you will discover Camarat, the mills of paillasse, the Ste Anne chapel, the beach road and much more.

Optional visit of a winery to taste the famous "rosé". Must be booked in advance, please let me know.

A Recent Review of this tour

Michel was such a wonderful guide. He took us to the non-tourist part of St. Tropez/France. What made each of the locations so wonderful was his knowledge of the little things that made up a village or castle. Could not have asked for a better companion to spend the day with in St. Tropez. Highly recommend.
