||Saint Tropez is a coastal town on the French Riviera, known for its immense character and universal popularity. Located on a peninsular and surrounded by world class beaches, museums and art galleries, the town has long been popular with artists and the international ‘jet set’.
||There is plenty to see and do in Saint Tropez. The great, the rich and the A-listers head to Le Club 55 on Pampelonne Beach or the Byblos hotel’s Les Caves du Roy nightclub. The charming village streets are full of first class restaurants, and designer boutiques, but there is also another side to glitzy extravagant Saint Tropez. The Maures mountains surrounding the village offer plenty of natural beauty to explore, and the Place des Lices Provencal market offers a more local shopping experience.
||Saint Tropez has a wide range of restaurants to suit all tastes. L’Auberge des Maures is the oldest restaurant in Saint Tropez and serves local Provencal food, and the ever popular Au Caprice des Deux serves a broader range of French cuisine. Both need an early reservation. Bistro a la Truffe is cozy and popular, with local dishes garnished with truffles and La Table du Marche is a well loved and welcoming local restaurant. There are plenty of options if you are looking for Michelin star experiences, including La Vague d’Or or Villa Belrose, La Badiane, or La Voile, to name a few.
|| Saint Tropez plays host to regular art exhibitions and sporting events. Exhibitions regularly feature work about some of the famous residents of Saint Tropez like Brigitte Bardot, Alfred Hitchcock, or Pablo Picasso. Sailing regattas are plentiful and world class, including the most popular oldest race, the ‘Voiles de Saint-Tropez’ as well as ‘Ar MeN’, ‘Au large de Saint-Tropez’, and ‘Les Dames de Saint Tropez’ women’s only sailing event. The Polo Club of Saint Tropez is very active during polo season hosting regular matches, as is the Tennis Club which hosts the Saint Tropez Classic in its picture postcard location.
