At the edge of Provence, a former little fishing village became a glamorous spot for unforgetabble vacations for many people. Saint-Tropez is today different, but still charms with its colorful harbor, the picturesque old town, fine sandy beaches and shady coves. Beside of classic beach holiday features, Saint-Tropez has much more to offer. Captivating art life and history, culture, gastronomy embodies the glorious past. The glam factor came with the golden age of the 1960s, when Saint-Tropez became a favorite spot for actors, artists and the French elite, which helped the little port town to international fame. Find your luxury villa here with full staff to experience the lifestyle of the South of France at the fullest.
Just to walk through the town is an experience in itself. Small alleyways with old but beautifully renovated houses decorated with fragrant flowers and olive trees lead to elegant shops, luxurious boutiques and restaurants. The old town alleyways lead to the glamorous port and a number of bars and restaurants for atmospheric evenings. Saint-Tropez is also a city of art and culture. The Musée de l'Annonciade is the first museum of modern art where you can see works by Signac and Camoin, among others.
The Citadel above the town is particularly impressive. The hexagonal, massive building above the town dates back to the 16th century and was used for defence. From the platform of the fortress, you have a fantastic view over the town and the Gulf of St. Tropez. There is a naval museum inside the Citadelle.
Musée de la Gendarmerie
The Musée de la Gendarmerie is also worth a visit for film enthusiasts. The location of the popular gendarmerie film series starring Louis de Funès is a museum dedicated to the making of the French film series. You can view numerous film props in the museum. The museum is also dedicated to Brigitte Bardot and her significance for the town of St. Tropez.
In the summer months between June and September, France attracts the most visitors for a summer holiday with warm temperatures and good beach weather. The southern coastal regions of France attract guests with around 300 days of sunshine a year.
The south coast in particular has a Mediterranean climate, which means mild winters and hot summers with temperatures of over 30 degrees Celsius. Thanks to the long-lasting warmth, France's coastal region is also suitable for a Mediterranean break in autumn and spring.
