When visiting the Côte d’Azur there are so many cute villages on my list that I never get to finish my list. During my last visit to France, I really enjoyed Port Grimaud and Bormes les Mimosas. I also went to the village Ramatuelle, which was only a 10 min drive from my hotel in Saint Tropez. Compared to the other villages, I found Ramatuelle to have a bohemian vibe to it. I went during the day, but I can imagine it’s even more fun in the evening when all terraces are packed and romantically lighted, and the alleys are bustling with a shopping crowd.
Perched on a hill top, medieval village Ramatuelle is a picturesque labyrinth of narrow streets and alleys overgrown with lush vegetation and fragrant flowers. The narrow alleys are boasting with small boutiques and work shops by artisans, painters, and jewelry makers. Small courtyards draw you in to explore more. I loved the small shops with baskets, Provençal soaps and olive oils. There are also many adorable restaurants with an outside terrace where you can enjoy the spectacular panoramic view while indulging in traditional French cuisine.
