Saint-Tropez (4300 inhabitants, 11km2)

Saint Tropez is a town dedicated to Art, Culture and Tradition. It became famous when Show Business People, Artists and Writers all fell under the spell of this charming little port in the 1950’s. In those days one could bump into Picasso, Francoise Sagan, Jacques Prévert and many others. With the arrival of Brigitte Bardot in 1956 the myth was installed for good. People watching is a favorite sport in summer. Visitors like to sit at the outdoor cafés hoping either to be seen or to see someone else. Huge yachts and sailing boats line up in the picturesque old port. You should not miss the famous Voiles de Saint Tropez at the beginning of October, which transforms the Gulf into a spectacular sailing event.
Saint Tropez’s true nature can be appreciated in the off months. If you come here in May, June, September or October you can take the time to admire the charming little streets and alleys.

Early in the morning at the Place aux Herbes you can find fruit, vegetables and flowers and watch the local fishermen selling their new catch. This is also the neighborhood of the famous café Sénéquier. A typical Provencal market is held every Tuesday and Saturday morning at the Place des Lices (“Jousting Arena”).

Religious and festive processions called Bravades are lively celebrations, which begin in May and continue until the 15th of June.
