Summer is almost over... but not quite finished yet! Nightclubs and beach clubs will still have their doors open, polo is in full swing and the Voiles de Saint Tropez brings up the rear at the end of September, so it's a great time to visit.

The traditional markets are still on all over the Golfe of Saint-Tropez, including the famous weekly Brocante du Jas des Roberts Flea market in Grimaud. This is hosted each Sunday throughout September and if you are a market fan then this is one not to be missed. The Provencal market in Ramatuelle is another popular one as it the bi-weekly Place des Lices market in the heart of Saint Tropez town.

Even better than a day at the races, why not head to St Tropez for a day out at the Polo... The International Polo Gold Cup will be hosted at the fabulous Saint Tropez Polo Club in Gassin. There are lunches, gala dinners and live entertainment plus pony rides for children. A great event for all the family to watch and plenty of activities for all to enjoy.

Of course, the traditional Sunday Polo matches also continue in September with this months match being hosted on the 10th September.

For something a little more traditional then the pretty town of Le Lavandou will have their annual Fete du Romerage. This is a religious celebration that is accompanied by folk dancing and music, the type of village festival common in French towns. The procession takes participants from the church of Saint-Louis to the chapel of Saint-Clair, through the beach, accompanied by folk music and dancing. It all ends with three short theatre pieces. There is also a popular Italian communal meal.

Across France mid-September brings with it the annual European Heritage Days. Exceptional locations around France, including Saint-Tropez, will be open to visit on the Journées du Patrimoine. Museums, churches, and galleries all open their doors to the public for a weekend of celebration and the event has become increasingly popular over the years.

Throughout the month you can enjoy the fantastic colourful sculptures of Niki de Saint Phalle in the streets of Saint Tropez. Well-known for her feminine, sensual and plump sculptures called 'Nanas', the colourful sculptures made of papier-mâché, yarn, and cloth represent white, black, yellow women with round shapes and decorative features. Then fast forward to the end of the month when you can enjoy the International Contemporary Art Fair. The 21st edition of this event will take place from the 23rd of September until the 4th of October at the Jean Despas Hall in Saint-Tropez.
