Guide to St Tropez

An oasis of alluring luxury and charming eccentricities

A hedonistic haven of elegance embodying the charm of Mediterranean village life and the iridescent glamour of the Côte d’Azur, St Tropez is as iconic as it is captivating. Peppered with exclusive restaurants, designer boutiques and pastel-painted houses that line the cobblestone streets, the town has long attracted the world’s elite with its atmospheric and unabashed extravagance.

Adopted as a summer escape by the beat poets in the 1960s and famously the place where Brigitte Bardot was ‘discovered’, St Tropez has become a bastion of the world’s most famous faces. Yet, if you delve a little deeper into this Mediterranean jewel, you'll find a town rich in history and maritime sensibility, where culture and indulgence are available in equal measure during a charter vacation to the South of France.  

Every year, St Tropez plays host to a selection of prestigious events on land and at sea, attracting enthusiasts and spectators in their droves. The ten-day International Polo Cup tournament has been gracing the shores for over a century, while the Le Voiles de St Tropez regatta is a must-attend event on the global yachting calendar. Famed for its status as a premier superyacht destination, the bustling port of St Tropez accommodates yachts of up to 100m in length and offers ample mooring and dock space. Inviting bistros and chic cafés line the quay, providing the perfect place to admire the stunning yachts floating serenely in the harbour and watch the world go by.

The winding alleyways of the picturesque Old Town buzz with life as aromas of café au lait and freshly baked croissants fill the air. Well-heeled shoppers saunter from one high-end fashion boutique to the next and locals and visitors alike flock to the twice-weekly morning market selling fresh produce from across France in the Place de la Garonne. For quiet beach relaxation, there are three golden-sand beaches (Plages La Glaye, La Ponche and de la Fontanette) fronting the oldest part of St Tropez village.

From the maze of backstreets and ramparts of Quartier de la Ponche, coloured in shades of gold, pink and sky-blue, to the famous champagne ‘spray’ parties in the private clubs of Pampelonne beach, there is a unique combination of tranquillity and hedonistic excess to be discovered in this iconic part of the French Riviera.
