SAINT-TROPEZ YACHT CHARTER: LUXURY NEVER SLEEPS
The 1960s marked the era transformation for Saint Tropez. Being just a french fishing village before, it turned into a glitzy hub of the international jet-set within just a decade. To this day, the 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. Nothing compares to arriving at the silhouette of the town’s characteristic belfry and seeing it from the ocean on a Saint-Tropez yacht rental.
Saint-Tropez has a trendy and social attitude, but an introspective soul. This unique mix of traits goes through the town’s different districts like a silver lining. Start your explorations in La Ponche, the old fishermen’s district, known for its calm ambiance and characteristic small streets and alleys. Here, you will also find the Tour du Portalet, one of the four original towers built in the 15th century to guard the town. Another must for a Saint-Tropez yacht charter is a visit to the Eglise de Saint-Tropez, which also serves as the town’s symbol. Easily recognizable by its brightly colored bell tower, we recommend taking some time to visit this Italian baroque-style monument. For charter guests interested in the arts, we suggest a visit of the Musée de l’annonciade, where you will find masterpieces by the likes of Signac, Seurat, and Matisse. You should also consider paying a visit to the Maison des papillons as part of your charter in St Tropez, where you will find yourself surrounded by more than 4500 butterfly specimens.
When arriving on a Saint-Tropez yacht rental, you will soon find that the marina is always packed with superyachts of all sizes. Head offboard for a delightful fish dinner in the town’s exclusive restaurants. Afterwards, head out for drinks in one of the many bars Saint Tropez has to offer and enjoy a glass of wine against the backdrop of one of the top-rated destinations of the French Riviera.
Additionally, the cultural agenda includes many prestigious events, attended by jetset and VIPs alike. In the summer month, the town is hosting the International Polo Cup and the Giraglia Rolex Cup. Alternatively, come here in September and experience the world-renowned Voiles de Saint-Tropez sailing competition, best attended from a Saint-Tropez Yacht charter.
Finally, the shores of Saint Tropez present many charming spots to unwind, like the famous Plage de Tahiti. Head to Graniers, Moutte when looking for a family-friendly atmosphere or Bouillabaisse and its many bars and restaurants for a more culinary beach experience. Also worth a visit when on a yacht charter in St Tropez are the Salinas, a narrow strip of pink sand bordered by the transparent waters of the French Riviera and the enchanting Pampelonne, boasting the town’s most exclusive beach clubs.
