Ramatuelle lies near Saint-Tropez, Sainte-Maxime and Gassin. It was built on a hill to defend itself against enemies. The town was known in the Middle Ages as Ramatuella (derived from the Arabic Rahmatollah i.e. ‘the mercy of God’) and was part of the area ruled by the Moors of nearby Fraxinet in the ninth and tenth centuries.
