Explore the medieval village of Grimaud, overlooking the “golfe de St Tropez”, the picturesque Ramatuelle and Gassin perched on the hills.
There is also Fréjus and its Roman remains and, of course the lagoon of Villepey with its pink flamingos. Enjoy a breathtaking drive along the coastal road from Saint Raphael to Cannes and on to Nice or Monaco, and admire the magnificent “massif de l’Esterel” rising up behind you.
There are lots of hidden treasures in the region that Catherine will be very happy to help you discover....
