The heart of the action
The iconic village of Saint Tropez itself is compact at around a square kilometre, and there are many wonderful hotels and guest houses for you to choose from. Much of the village is pedestrianised and the old town, filled with charming lanes, shuttered cottages, and pretty gardens is perfect for exploring by foot.
The world-famous Port de Saint Tropez marina is on your doorstep, as are the shops, bars and restaurants, and the renowned nightlife. St Tropez village has a couple of small beaches but the beach that it is famous for is actually situated at Pampelonne a few kilometres away. The high-end hotels tend to offer shuttle buses on request to Pampelonne beach so you don't have to worry about driving. Alternatively, taxis are readily available and there are regular buses between the beach and the St Tropez.
The immediate area around the village offers some lovely accommodation options with more privacy and more space. Elegant manors have been transformed into boutique hotels with stunning swimming pools and every modern convenience. The areas to the south, Sant-Bonaventure, Les Moulins and Maneby are fairly flat so there are not many places with sea views to be found here. Over to the headland of Saint-Jaune and Les Salins, to the east of St Tropez, are a mixture of small hotels and guest houses.
