Real Estate Grimaud: Villas and Houses for Sale
Overlooking the crystal waters of the Mediterranean, the village of Grimaud lies in the department of the Var, just a short distance from St. Tropez. Perched on a hillside, Grimaud was originally designed to be the perfect vantage point for surveying possible invaders. Today these views and the village's quiet Provencal ambience provide the perfect escape from the bustling towns that surround.
Grimauds medieval charm and historical richness is a consistent draw for tourists from around the globe. Just above the town are the striking ruins of an 11th century chateau that was originally owned by the Castellane family. Although it is a ruin, this historical monument's massive four towers give a remarkable glimpse into its original beauty and stature.
In the 10th century, the village of Grimaud was bequeathed by William the Good Provence to a Genoese nobleman named Giblin de Grimaldi. Grimaldi was an ancestor of a well known aristocracy originating in Monaco and the village was soon named after the family. Shortly thereafter, some of Grimauds most notable architecture was created making it a prime destination for experiencing 11th century design.
As a result of its rich history, Grimaud is never short on charm. Its labyrinth like stone streets wind between recently restored dwellings dating back centuries. Many roads meet at fountains and dappled squares often lined with flowering trees, the wares of local artisans and craftspeople abounding throughout.
The oldest road in the village, the Rue de la Templiers, includes an impressive assortment of arcades and stone detailing on the doors and windows of many of its buildings. Both the Chateau and the Église St. Michael church are beautiful examples of Grimauds truly exquisite Romanesque design.
Quiet and picturesque, Grimaud is but a short drive from St Tropez and the beaches of Pampelonne and so offers its residents a wonderful diversity.
