Tourist village, very popular with the wealthy populations of France. Exceptional panorama and breathtaking view. The town has retained significant non-urbanized areas, consisting of forests, wine-growing areas or sports facilities such as golf and polo. It has a rich natural heritage framed by two natural areas of ecological, faunistic and floristic interest. The town is located in the center of the peninsula of Saint-Tropez in the Massif des Maures, a mountain range stretching from Hyeres to Frejus. Gassin is a lovely village perched high on inhospitable rocky land above the Mediterranean Sea. The village is classified among the ‘most beautiful villages of France'. When you arrive in Gassin you can start your visit at the orientation table near the highest parking area. From here you have a magnificent view of the Bay of Saint-Tropez and the surrounding hills: you can see a great deal of coastline including the resorts of La Croix Valmer, Saint-Tropez, Griamud, Sainte-Maxime and Les Issambres as well as the Massif des Maures to the north. You can continue by walking along the medieval terrace - the Promenade Dei Barri - and you come to some more splendid views and a few very nice restaurants with tables set out to look over the panoramic views. This really is an unbeatable spot to stop for lunch. The historic village is small and even the main square is hardly wider than a road - but wandering round the ancient streets of Gassin is a treat. Look out for the old well and the street called l'Androuno - claimed to be the narrowest street in the world (I decided to walk round rather than try and squeeze through!). Everywhere you walk the delicious scent of Jasmine hangs in the air. You will also enjoy a stroll around the garden L'Hardy-Denonain towards the south of Gassin which presents examples of many of the plants that we associate with Provence: this garden is officially classified as a 'remarkable garden' in France. The village of Gassin is closely linked to the village of Ramatuelle: the villages were both originally created to allow the locals to escape the pirates who were numerous in the Mediterranean waters and will usually be visited as part of the same tour of the region. There are numerous beaches close to Gassin, including the famous beach at Pampelonne, and some parts of the attractive coast fall under the protection of the Conservatoire de Littoral, an organisation established to preserve the flora and fauna along the coast and across the Saint-Tropez peninsula. Our favourite resorts on the coast south of Gassin include Port Grimaud and Saint-Tropez.
