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 isiconic 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 a local winery to taste the famous "rosé" of Provence
- Leave the port of Saint-Tropez by the seaside passing the marinas/
- Guided tour the picturesque Grimaud village (not the marina which isa tourist trap), few miles away inland. You will discover from the ruins of the medieval castle one of the most fabulous panorama of the region of Saint-Tropez.
- Passing the vineyards and the village of Cogolin you will discover the mysterious Maures forest where the green is King.
- Guided visit of Bormes-les-Mimosas, one of the breathtaking village of the south of France, a medieval village as much as a garden.

Michel is the guide extraordinaire! We had him for two days and he advised us about a third, even though he was not available. He is funny, flexible and very knowledgeable. He made the day very exciting and we enjoyed a fun French picnic and a winery stop, that we loved. He made sure we saw everything and we could pick how long we stayed to shop etc. Very enjoyable day!
