Welcome to Saint-Tropez
Every summer, images of movie stars, oligarchs and models enjoying champagne on yachts and dancing in nightclubs adorn the pages of celebrity magazines, all with the same caption "spotted in Saint-Tropez”. It is easy to see the attraction of this once tiny fishing village with its beautiful beaches, luxury yachts, exclusive boutiques, cafes and bars offering the millionaire lifestyle with a twist of French Riviera chic.
However, Saint-Tropez has managed to retain a quiet charm in its narrow streets, traditional restaurants shaded by grapevines and the pretty harbour lined with wooden masts. Spectacular white sand beaches line the Gulf de Saint-Tropez while the Provencal countryside rises up behind the town with medieval villages, vineyards and lavender fields sweeping over the rolling hills.
Saint-Tropez combines this old-fashioned charm with its status as the preferred destination for the rich and famous. A pretty Provencal village with an immaculate maze of cobbled lanes filled with boutiques and lovely cottages with painted shutters, Saint-Tropez is also well-known for its designer boutiques, glitzy art galleries, world-renowned beach clubs and exclusive nightclubs.
