The Maures mountain range

on the outskirts of the village

The iconic mountain range in Var, the Maures, leads you up from the coast to its highest point, Signal de la Sauvette (776m).

The green setting of the Var

Grimaud is one of the gateways to the Massif des Maures. As you climb towards the village from the sea, you soon reach the foothills of this imposing mountain range that extends along the entire southern part of the Var region, from Hyères to Vidauban, from the Maures plain to the sea.

Oak and chestnut trees carpet the slopes of the rolling hills, dominated by the site of Notre-Dame-des-Anges, the highest point in the Maures massif, above Collobrières. Grimaud is like a crown jewel nestled against the unspoiled, well-preserved setting of the Maures mountains. A magnificent forest.
