Fairies bridge trail

The must-do walk in Grimaud: head towards the Fairies Bridge and enjoy the tranquility of the natural environment.

Leaving from Grimaud

This small loop takes you along the La Garde river, a body of water that snakes through the valley of the Fairy Bridge before flowing into the Giscle and onward to Port Grimaud. A nature walk with a dose of culture, the themed signs provide information about the wildlife, plants, geology and heritage sites along the way, such as the Fairy Bridge, the Saint-Roch windmill and Grimaud castle.

In the very heart of

Maures mountain range

The path takes you on a discovery of local wildlife, and you can learn more from the information panels along the way.
If you’re really lucky, you may even come across one of our fairies…Otherwise known as the Hermann Tortoise or, in our region, the Maures tortoise. This is an exquisite holiday location for the tortoises.

Just around

the Riverbend

Follow the river and you’ll come to the remains of the old aqueduct, the Fairies bridge, which used to carry water to the village. Look at it, on the right, on the left, then cross it. If you turn around you’ll see that the bridge offers a direct view of the castle. It’s beautiful.

Continue along the path, enjoying the scenery and the calmness of nature… When you’re ready, take the stony path lined with oak trees which takes you back to your starting point: Saint-Roch windmill.
