This small fishing town, that was made famous by the wonderful Brigitte Bardot, is now a glamorous holiday destination for celebrities and royals alike. Whether it’s on a yacht, the beach or in the streets, you will almost definitely see the rich and famous here this summer.

The Royals

The South of France may be used to Royals, given that Princess Charlene and Prince Albert of Monaco are frequently spotted in their principality and at various venues and events along the French Riviera.

However other royal visitors include Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, both of whom are fond of holidaying in St Tropez - often with their mother Sarah Ferguson and respective boyfriends. In 2013, Princess Beatrice and her boyfriend Dave Clark were spotted at Club 55 with celebrity pals Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis. It might seem like an unlikely friendship, but Ashton met Dave in 2012 after the actor bought a space flight on Virgin Galactic, where Beatrice's boyfriend works in astronaut relations.

The power couple

A power couple that you are likely to see in the South of France is Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who own a vineyard in Brignoles where they produce their own wine, Miraval Rosé. Back in June 2015, they were spotted flying economy on Air France to Nice with their family having shunned first class or a private jet. The famous family feel at home in France as they even decided to give birth to twins Knox and Vivienne in nearby Nice.

He holds his annual Leonardo Dicaprio Foundation Gala at the vineyard Domaine Bertaud Belieu just outside of Saint Tropez, where celebrities flock to attend the gala, including Sir Elton John and HRH Prince Albert of Monaco.
