Published on in Saint-Tropez
Among the wonders of our beautiful region, your Hotel La Bastide de Saint-Tropez team today would like to bring to your attention one with a reputation that is truly inseparable from that of nearby Saint-Tropez: Ramatuelle. Surrounded by vineyards, this medieval village perched atop a picturesque hill offers a sumptuous panorama of its rocky capes and the sublime Pampelonne Beach. Discover it for yourself, in summer or in the heart of winter ...
Beauty and authenticity in Ramatuelle
Although the 5km length of Pampelonne Beach, washed by the sparkling turquoise sea, is the area’s most famous feature, there is much to enjoy about the flora and fauna of the protected areas of Ramatuelle, its heritage dating back to the Middle Ages, and the authentic charm of its Provencal market. Indeed, this small village of less than 3,000 inhabitants, adjacent to the more famous Saint-Tropez, has a unique history and its own special place on the Saint-Tropez peninsula. Popular with celebrities who come to seek tranquillity, it jealously preserves its welcoming conviviality and magnificent natural spaces.
Some ideas for a walk in Ramatuelle
You can start your discovery of Ramatuelle with a walk through its pedestrian-friendly streets. There you’ll find a 15th century stall, here, a washhouse dating from the same period, further on a chapel that survived the Wars of Religion and a fortified gate testifying to the presence of ancient ramparts. Then you might wish to set off for a short hike to the Cap Camarat Lighthouse before heading on to the magnificent Cap Taillat. This rocky outcrop linked to the land by a sandy isthmus forms a refuge for an exceptionally rich biodiversity. Finish the day with some music or theatre; there’s always something happening on the village’s cultural scene. Check the programme online beforehand!
Ramatuelle delights with its authenticity, the warmth of its welcome and the beauty of its scenery. In the middle of the summer season, you can experience the vibrant and magnificent Pampelonne Beach. In autumn, the vineyards are adorned with gold and red evocative of an impressionist painting, while in winter the coastal path can be explored in peace ...
