Leave from the port of Sainte Maxime for an arrival in Saint Tropez by boat. This colorful and wonderful village has enchanted artists, writers, sun worshipers and celebrities. Once a fishing village, it is now a haven for those seeking azure blues, sun soaked walks, lazy lunches, and discovering unusual finds. On your drive, see the famous Pampelonne Beach, the longest beach in the Riviera. When you arrive in Gassin, enjoy one of the most beautiful panoramic views of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez. Enjoy Gassin, a Most Beautiful Village, then end your Tropezian day with convivery and a wine tasting at Château Minuty.
Walk along the medieval terrace – the Promenade Dei Barri to find wonderful views and nice restaurants with tables overlooking the panoramic views.
The historic village is small with charming winding streets and a tiny main square. Look out for the old well and the street called l’Androuno – claimed to be the narrowest street in the world. Gassin’s history dates back to Roman times. It became a fortified village at the end of the 15th century when it was considered an important centre of commerce and was located along the pilgrimage route to St. Jacques de Compostelle. Everywhere you walk the delicious scent of jasmine hangs in the air. Cork makers worked full time during the 19th century. Silk worms were also raised here before being sent to nearby Cogolin (a village still renowned for its arts and crafts). The other main trade was charcoal making by the village ‘bousquetiers’
