Overview of St Tropez & Surrounding Area
One of the most famous resorts in Europe, St Tropez needs little introduction. But in case you aren’t familiar with this land of dreamy beaches, super yachts, beautiful pastel coloured buildings, exquisite restaurants and high-end shopping boutiques then you really are in for a treat. Synonymous with glamour ever since Brigitte Bardot made her iconic appearance in “God Created Woman”, Saint Tropez has become the place to see, and be seen. Once a tiny fishing village, Saint Tropez is now home to some of the South of France’s best restaurants, beach bars, nightclubs and fashion boutiques.
This remarkably pretty spot in the heart of the French Riviera is well-known for its millionaire lifestyle, but it’s not solely all about glitz and glamour here. The quaint narrow village streets that lead away from the port have fully retained their old-fashioned charm. And thanks to the coast’s protected status, there are no high-rise buildings or big resorts, but instead a picturesque village that can be a surprise to some who come here expecting the over-development that has befallen many other port towns that hold such a high-flying status. Cobbled streets dotted with flowering balconies and traditional French squares where semi-weekly markets are held offer a beautiful contrast to the buzz and rush of the marina. Not only that, but the town’s unique position on the headland of a rocky peninsula with the Provencal countryside rising up behind it means that, visually, St Tropez is simply stunning. Not to mention the famous white sandy beaches!
Saint Tropez offers the perfect combination of elegance and charming artistic heritage. So whether you’re visiting to people watch along the marina and mingle with the jet-setters, or admire the cobbled streets and romantic architecture, our luxury St Tropez villas will be the perfect base from which to discover this idyllic piece of French paradise.
