LUXURY NEVER SLEEPS
In the 1960s, Saint Tropez went from fishing village to glitzy hub of the international jet-set in a very short time. To this day, this resort town located in the South of France exudes a glamorous charm that blends modernity and the romantic atmosphere of a village of red-roofed houses guarded by a lone belfry.
Saint-Tropez has a trendy and social attitude, but an introspective soul that exudes from the narrow alleys of La Ponche, the old fishermen district, to Tour du Portalet and the charming Eglise de Saint-Tropez, the town’s symbol. The Musée de l’annonciade houses masterpieces by the likes of Signac, Seurat, and Matisse, while more than 4500 butterfly specimen are on view at the Maison des papillons.
The marina is always packed with luxury yachts that stop here for delightful fish dinners at the town’s exclusive restaurants or drinks with friends, against the backdrop of one of the top-rated destinations of the French Riviera, a favorite of Mediterranean charters.
The cultural agenda includes several events, like the International Polo Cup, the Giraglia Rolex Cup and the Voile de Saint Tropez, and the shores present many charming spots to unwind, like the famous Plage de Tahiti, Graniers, Moutte (ideal for families with children), and Bouillabaisse, featuring bars and restaurants. Worth a visit are also Salinas, a narrow strip of pink sand bordered by the transparent waters of the French Riviera, and the enchanting Pampelonne, boasting exclusive and busy beach clubs.
