Visiting French Towns Built In The Middle Ages

One of my favorite things to do in the South of France is to walk around towns built in the Middle Ages. There is always so much charm, something to explore, and plenty of great photo opportunities.

Most of these towns are built on top of a hill to better defend themselves from enemies. And so many of these small, old towns have a lot of very charming footpaths.

A few months ago, I visited Ramatuelle for the first time. This very charming town is located near Saint Tropez. My son had so much fun running along all the different paths, discovering something new around every corner. However, we had to be careful due to many steep stairways.

Visiting an old village like this is still possible and can be fun with kids. Usually there is a bistro where you can stop for lunch. And plenty of space to run around. In most cases vehicles can’t fit or aren’t allowed on many of the footpaths.
