Saint-Tropez is a town in the French Riviera. Made famous by Bridget Bardot, it has for long has been a hot destination for the rich and famous. But the town has plenty for everyone.

Cruise ships that visit must anchor or loiter offshore and bring passengers to town by tender.

Things to do

The "village" itself is easily walked and enjoyed. The waterfront is crowded with cafes and shops with "elite" offerings. A block or two inland, through narrow streets and alleys, you'll find fewer stores and cafes, quaint and interesting studios, homes and a few historical structures.


  • Chateau Minuty Rose Cuvee De L'Oratoire. Rose wines are popular in Provence, and this is one of the best.


  • Résidence Maeva Les Marines de Gassin , 0870 026 7144, Located in Les Marines de Gassin, 6 km from Gassin. Sits on a private park giving directly onto a sand beach. Has a swimming pool/lagoon. 100 m from the harbour and small shops, 600 m from the shopping centre.


The waterfront is packed with stores offering "elite" goods, and cafes for the "in-crowd" (or naive tourists), all at heady prices. A block or two inland, offerings are often equally good, with slightly more modest prices.
