The rooms are all done out in a matching yet individual style; we were very lucky to stay in the room in the main building on the fist floor with a balcony, which was divine.

Saint Tropez has been synonymous with glamour, since sex siren Brigitte Bardot cavorted on its beach in a skimpy bikini , and Roger Vadim cast her in the 1956 film "And God Created Woman" although this pretty fishing village had been luring artists with its pastel coloured buildings and mythical light long before that.
Following on from the legacy created by Eddie Barclay. Music producer and founder of Barclay records, St Tropez is frequented by stars of stage and screen as well as fashion icons such as Karl Largerfeld, Kate Moss, Vanessa Paradis and Georgia May Jagger. One of the main attractions is people watching.
For those wishing to go to Saint Tropez by public transport, it requires a bit of effort as it doesn't have a train station - take the train to Saint Raphael and transfer to a bus or ferry across the Gulf. If you're coming from Marseille or Toulon airport get off the train at Les Arcs and take a bus to St Tropez.
The food on offer in Saint Tropez ranges from the simple French Bistro or cafe to spectacular, like the stratospheric but magnificent 3-Michelin starred Vague d'Or. In general St Tropez is expensive but there are some wonderful restaurants to be found for all budgets.
