Destination St Tropez
An oasis of luxury
Embodying the charm of Mediterranean village life and the timeless 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 cobble stone streets; it has long attracted the world’s elite to its coastline.
Adopted as a summer escape by the beat poets in the 1960’s and famously the place where Brigitte Bardot was ‘discovered’, St Tropez has become a bastion of the world’s most famous faces. Yet delve a little deeper and you will still find a French town rich in history that offers culture as well as indulgent excess.
Every year St Tropez plays host to a selection of prestigious events on land and sea, attracting enthusiasts and spectators in their droves. The ten-day International Polo Cup tournament has been gracing the shores for over a century whilst the Le Voiles de St Tropez regatta is a must-see event on the yacht set’s calendar. Famed for its status as a premier yacht charter destination, the bustling port of St. Tropez can accommodate yachts of up to 100m in length along with ample mooring and dock space. The boutique bistros and chic cafés that line the quay are the perfect place to admire the stunning yachts floating serenely in the harbour.
For quiet beach relaxation, explore the three small golden-sand beaches that front the oldest part of St Tropez village – Plages La Glaye, La Plonche and de la Fontanette. From the maze of backstreets and ramparts daubed in shades of gold, pink and sky-blue of Quartier de la Ponche to the famous champagne ‘spray’ parties in the private clubs of Pampelonne beach, there is a combination of tranquility and hedonistic excess in this iconic part of the French Riviera.
