Le Petit Train des Pignes

Le Petit Train des Pignes invites you to discover Sainte-Maxime differently!
This city tour will reveal the treasures of our town:
- The Old Village and its very commercial streets
- The superb houses and private areas at the top of the hill
- The "Sémaphore des Sardinaux" at 136 meters above sea level in the midst of lush Mediterranean vegetation
-Panoramic views of the Gulf of Saint Tropez
-The old Villa Grimaldi
- The Villa Gaumont
- Town Hall
- The Harbour...
Sainte-Maxime won't have any secret for you!

The 45 minutes trip invites you to discover the harbour, La Tour Carrée, symbol for the town, the old village and the old typical shopping streets, the indoor market and its special atmosphere. Without forgetting the Town Hall, that was an old silk-worm breeding factory. Le Château des Tourelles, the last residence of Leon Gaumont or the Sémaphore hill, on top of its 136 metres offers a panoramic view of the Gulf of Saint Tropez, the sea, and further away the southern alps.

To the occasion of its 30th anniversary, this institution in the town of Sainte-Maxime updated to a new Petit Train with the colours of the town is upgrading to new eco and easy access technologies.
