One of the most beautiful towns on the Côte d'Azur, Saint-Tropez has managed to preserve its authentic feel despite its universal popularity, ever since the actress Brigitte Bardot moved here to take up residence in her house, la Madrague.
Above all, Saint-Tropez is a seaside resort with six beaches, and their names alone will conjure up thoughts of holidays: the beaches of la Bouillabaisse, Canoubiers, la Ponche, la Moutte and les Salins. Restaurants, bars and clubs help maintain the reputation of this jewel of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region as a party town.
The town has always been popular with pop stars, new wave artists and painters, and this is reflected in its heritage. Today, while the jet set like to come for wild nights out, Saint-Tropez remains a popular destination for holidaymakers who appreciate the beauty of a superb Provençal location, under ochre tiled rooftops, in the magical tranquillity of the early morning, serenaded by the chirping cicadas and the music of the wind whistling through the guy wires in the harbour.
The town's nautical tradition extends to the port, whose state-of-the-art facilities play host to maritime events, such as the famous Giralgia Cup with 200 competing boats, or the Voiles de Saint-Tropez regatta in the autumn. An unmissable event for lovers of schooners, yachts or dragon boats, and for all those who are simply curious, a dream opportunity to rub shoulders with plenty of famous names in a very friendly atmosphere!
With airports and train stations in Nice, Marseilles and Toulon, Saint-Tropez can easily be reached by air or by rail, or by car on the A8 motorway.
