Today I am sharing postcards of what in my opinion is a must see in Provence, Ramatuelle village, one of those typical french towns that you have in mind when you think of France.
Ramatuelle village, one of the most beautiful towns in France
I have so much pleasure sharing with you guys tips for my home country. Ramatuelle is a few kilometers away from Saint Tropez and is mostly famous for it’s beaches. Indeed, Saint Tropez beaches are not directly in Saint Tropez but in Ramatuelle.
This typical french town is less known by international tourist but is worth a stop. The city center is beautiful and how you would imagine a typical village in Provence would look like.
Together with Grimaud and Gassin, it was awarded one of the most beautiful villages in Provence. Those villages were even awarded most beautiful villages in France for many years.
Ramatuelle is a perched village : it is situated on a hilltop so you have impressive views across the surrounding countryside and seaside.
What to do in Ramatuelle village
Beside wandering the quiet cobbled streets, Ramatuelle has a lot of offers in terms of culture. Don’t miss the ALM Gallery and in the summer there are many festivals of music, arts and theatre going on. The most popular one is the Ramatuelle festival.
Also, every Thursday and Sunday morning, don’t miss the Ramatuelle farmer’s market that features stalls with typical Provençal product and objects.
Also, one of the reason why Ramatuelle is one of the most beautiful villages is France is : THE FOOD. It has three restaurants recommended by the Michelin guide : Chez Camille, L’écurie du Castellas et Saveurs Sincères!
Finally, you are in South of France so don’t miss the beautiful beaches. And of course go enjoy Saint Tropez. For more informations check out my Saint Tropez guide about the cool things to do in St Tropez aka best bars, cafés, shopping etc.
