The mythical village of Saint-Tropez, made famous by the actress Brigitte Bardot, attracts celebrities and visitors from all over the world.
Quiet and authentic from autumn to spring, this former fishermen’s village becomes in the summer a renowned seaside resort, with its lively port full of luxurious sailboats and yachts, its cafe terraces, its designer shops, and its nightclubs. Guaranteed festive and summer atmosphere! The picturesque port, lined with colourful facades, the typical district of La Ponche, and the Place des Lices, the square where the locals play boules, contribute to the village’s charm.
From the ramparts of the citadel, the view of the lovely church bell tower and its bright colours, the roofs of the village, and the Bay of Saint-Tropez is magnificent. Not to be missed, the Annonciade museum situated in the Notre-Dame-de-l’Annonciade chapel exhibits a collection of paintings dating from the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century.
The ‘bravades’, a traditional celebration taking place in May and in June, honors the military and religious past of the village. In October, during the ‘Voiles de Saint-Tropez’, the bay hosts the most beautiful classic and modern sailboats.
