Made famous in the 1950s thanks to Brigitte Bardot, Saint-Tropez is well known as a high-class
holiday destination, simply brimming with glitz and glam. Now you can get close to all the deluxe action by staying in one or more of the luxury
resorts that call this playground to the rich and famous, home.
Be sure to bag a room or suite as close to the beach
as possible. As well as waking up to glorious views of the Mediterranean and towering palm trees, you’ll be within walking distance of all the attractions that make Saint-Tropez so acclaimed. Many of the five-star options include award-winning eateries
bursting with tranquility, so if you’re after a spot of relaxing after sunbathing, you’ll be in good hands.
No doubt you’ll be ending up on Pampelonne beach at some point, and with Club 55 found on the pristine sands, expect to be bumping into a famous face or two. A short walk from here will take you to the local shopping
district where instead of a local newsagent you’ll find the likes of Christian Dior and Diane von Furstenberg. Roberto Cavalli can also be found here and boasts being only one of two places in France where you can browse his collections. Finish off the day by strolling along the Vieux Port and admire the super yachts and boats
coming in to dock. You won’t be alone thanks to the approximate 100,000 visitors that traipse through the village every day.
Saint-Tropez isn’t all beaches
, jet setting and bass dropping clubs, there’s also a cultural element too. Whether you want to wander through the old fishing quarter of La Ponche, visit Citadel with the kids or take in some history at Musée de l’Annonciade, you’re certain to have some indulgent down-time, either alone or with loved ones. Suitable for extended weekend getaways, family
holidays and corporate breaks, this magnificent destination is a true sight for sore eyes.
WINGED BOOTS WISDOM
For some peace and quiet away from the likes of L’Escale and Club 55, Ramatuelle is just a 20-minute drive away from the city centre. Wander along the cobbled streets and traditional architecture and take some time for yourself.
