Grimaldi, Grimaud and Joan Collins

Monaco's royal family - the famous Grimaldi clan used to have a little-known coastal area in the South of France named after them. Up until the end of the 19th century, the Gulf of Grimaldi lay between a small fishing town and a hilltop village with an 11th century church.

And then things started to change. The coastal area was renamed 'The Gulf of Saint-Tropez'. Coco Chanel skipped off a yacht in 1923, Brigitte Bardot arrived on the scene in her controversial film in 1957. The legend of Saint-Tropez had begun.

Just across the bay from Saint-Tropez, with less hustle and bustle is the beautiful perched village of Grimaud. With spectacular views, great restaurants and a laid-back traditional life-style, its an ideal location for a sun-drenched Provençal holiday within easy reach of the garrigues and hills behind, or the coast and in particular, the Venice-like harbour town of Port Grimaud with its colourful houses, beaches and café bar restaurants. And Joan Collins, often in residence at her Mediterranean bolt-hole.

The water taxi from the Port is the best way to visit Saint-Tropez in the height of summer.

One of Pure France's finest rental houses is perfectly situated just outside Grimaud. A superb, traditional style, modern villa with the highest quality interior, a beautiful garden, private pool and unique 'inside-outside' dining area and bar.

Great summer tarifs allow you to be your own Royal Family for a week or two...
