LE BEAUVALLON, private beach, Grimaud, French Riviera
About the beach
This stunning beach is exclusively for use of guests of the wonderful boutique hotel, Le Beauvallon. The 500m² area of white sandy beach is set beyond the beautifully landscaped gardens of the resort, and is a veritable haven of tranquillity on the Riviera. Guests can enjoy lounging on the comfortable sun beds, whilst the friendly waiters tend to their every need. The beach club is renowned in the South of France for its excellent cocktails, which perfectly compliment the beach’s blissful ambiance and its gorgeous setting overlooking the Bay of St Tropez. Guests can enjoy a dip in the 25 metre heated swimming pool, or soak themselves in the 7 metre outdoor Jacuzzi. There is also a beach boutique selling gifts, clothes and souvenirs, as well as a kiosk selling refreshing ice creams, magazines and newspapers. The waterfront restaurant serves an excellent array of the freshest seafood on the Côte d’Azur, and is a truly romantic setting for a dinner under the stars.

Grimaud is a charming example of a typical South of France village perché, set up on a hill around an old castle. The village is steeped in history, and still boasts a fully functioning flour mill which visitors can see. The little streets, with their old wooden doors and colourful flower pots, are full of character, making for a very pleasant afternoon stroll. Down on the coast, Port Grimauld is entirely built on the water around marshland. Its aqueous nature has meant that it has taken on the nickname of the ‘Little Venice’ of the Côte d’Azur, and a cruise through the attractive canals offers visitors a chance to take in the pretty fishing houses and the waterside activities. Everything can be reached by boat, and therefore this delightful Riviera town is largely blissfully free of traffic.
A trip to the nearby scenic fishing village of Saint Tropez is a must do for visitor to le Beauvallon, and the beach provides a boat shuttle to take its guests there. Wander around the pristine little streets with their pretty pastel coloured houses, and dive into some of the wonderful boutiques on offer. The Café Sénéquier by the port is the place to settle down for a glass of rosé and a session of lucrative people-watching as the rich and famous spill off their yachts. La Place des Lices is home to an excellent outdoor market on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and the rest of the time, it is an excellent spot to catch the Saint Tropez locals playing a traditional game of boules. Le Musée de l’Annonciade, housed in an old chapel displays an impressive collection of artwork by Matisse, Bonnard and Signac.
There is beautiful countryside inland from Le Beauvallon to explore, including lovely vineyards and forests. There are some lovely walks to do, and it is also possible to go horse riding in the nearby area.
One of the other great opportunities available in St-Tropez to is to rent a boat for a day and tour the beautiful coastline.
