Quick Snapshots of Gassin

July 4, 2017

On one of our final evenings in France, Will and I took a quick trip over to the hilltop town of Gassin for an evening walk.  Having spent so much of my childhood visiting this region, I am surprised that I had never visited this incredibly charming village. Gassin sits very close to St. Tropez but is on the very top of a mountain and has an incredible view of the valley and sea.  On the drive up the hill, we passed the Minuty vineyard — one of my favorite rosés.  The town is very quiet and residential but has a collection of lovely outdoor and very busy restaurants at the very top.  Next summer we will definitely take the time to have dinner here —  totally worth a visit if you’re in the area!

Like so many of these French villages, Gassin was heaving with early summer flowers — a photographer’s dream.  It is a bit more rugged than Grimaud but equally picturesque.  The golden light of the evening was so enchanting, I wish we could have stayed a bit longer but baby bath time and the promise of a leisurely dinner at home was beckoning. Still, I would recommend this village to any traveler.  We will be putting together our local guide shortly ! xx
