Ramatuelle is a village that we, the team of Boutemy Immobilier really like to go to for a stroll once in a while. It is one of a few villages in the south of France which relies on tourism in order to thrive. In fact, the population of this area goes up from 2,000 to close to 30,000 when the warmer months start to roll in. Don’t worry though; those who head to Ramatuelle will never feel as though they are in the ‘hustle and bustle’ of a populated tourist town. The residents of Ramatuelle have gone to great lengths in order to ensure that the area retains its classic French town.
Most of the action in Ramatuelle actually takes place away from the center of the town, although those who head into Ramatuelle will be able to enjoy some of the most stunning views in all of France. If you are staying in Port Grimaud, then we do encourage you to visit Ramatuelle at least once. It is perfect for those who have never experienced a classic French village before. It is suggested that you visit here for the regular Farmer’s Markets, at least.
One of the main highlights of Ramatuelle, and perhaps one of the main reason as to why many a tourist heads to this part of France is for the absolutely stunning beaches located nearby. The water is crystal clear and the sand is beautifully white. In fact; the beach in this area tends to be a favoured destination for many celebrities. You never know, you may spot one! Located along the beaches are all manner of ‘secret coves’ and the like. This means that you will never really be far from privacy, even if you are picking the busy summer months to head to Ramatuelle.
Ramatuelle, for the most part at least, is surrounded by nature. It may take a while to get to some of the larger destinations in the south of France, but most people will not mind as you will need to travel through absolutely gorgeous scenery. The forests that surround Ramatuelle are absolutely stunning. If you are the active type then you are going to love exploring them. Since this area of France is well-known for its wine production you will also be able to enjoy gorgeous Vineyards which stretch for miles and miles.
Much of the area of Ramatuelle is dedicated to the more ‘laid back’ vacation so do not expect to find yourself in a midst of a crazy party night after night (although the nightlife in this area is good). Instead you can find yourself indulging in a Olive Oil and Wine trip, horse riding, craft-related activities, tennis, biking, walking, diving, boating, and even a spot of golf. A stay in Ramatuelle will really provide a break from the norm and it is an absolutely fantastic place to stay if you wish to head away from the major cities in the area. Those who visit Ramatuelle will never have anything short of an absolutely brilliant time on their holiday.
