St Tropez Information
St Tropez is a small fishing village with a big reputation. Popular with writers and artists from Colette to Picasso, it really hit the big time when Brigitte Bardot filmed here for ‘And God Created Woman’ in 1954. Her youthful, sun-kissed, hedonism spawned millions of imitators who still throng the streets and beaches of St Tropez today.
Despite the summer crowds, the monstrous traffic, the Johnny Halliday look-alikes and the white cowboy boots, St Tropez remains as fashionable as ever. It is still a place to be seen by European celebrities who rent or buy villas or exquisitely restored village houses.
The little town itself is still a delight with its winding medieval streets of traditional pastel-painted fishermen’s cottages, boutiques and restaurants. There’s also the port where fishing boats moor alongside enormous mega-yachts.
In the morning you can combine rustic Provence and chic Côte d’Azur with a visit to the market place on Place des Lices and the evening can be spent in the cafés around the harbour, where you can sip aperitifs and yacht-watch.
A rental villa represents a great alternative to a traditional hotel and is a particularly good choice if you are planning to holiday with family or a group of friends. Most villas will have their own swimming pools and many estate agents offer a range of additional services including maids, housekeepers and even private chefs!
