Saint-Tropez

Saint-Tropez holidays

Saint-Tropez, what can we say? Wide-brim hats, striped umbrellas and 50s film stars spring to mind. Easily one of the world’s most glamorous holiday hotspots, this charming port is where to come for fun and frolics in the golden Mediterranean sunshine. Its reputation as the place to party is what it’s famous for, but there’s more to this quaint French fishing village turned resort du jour.

Va-va-voom

Anyone who’s anyone has graced these shores. Think jet-setters from Bridget Bardot and Mick Jagger to Beyoncé and George Clooney – the list goes on. The way to spot an A-lister is to pitch up at a pavement café by the yachts at Vieux Port, order a bowl of moules frites and simply watch. We suggest legendary brasserie Senequier for a sporting chance. Come night-time, try the aptly named VIP Room.

The good life

Fashion is big news here so if you want to blend in, think straw bags, sailing shorts, chinos, floaty dresses and leather strappy sandals. And nothing says Saint-Tropez chic like huge sunglasses. The place to show off your new look? The beach. These sandy spots have as much star status as the celebs who frequent them. Check out Pampelonne Beach for the best of the bunch.

Let’s talk local life

There’s a simple side to things too. Just head to leafy Place des Lices to see locals play boules and sip pastis in the shade of the afternoon sun. A twice-weekly Provençal produce market takes place here if you fancy stocking up on the region’s sun-kissed riches. While La Ponche’s cobbles make up the old fishing quarter, perfect for some seriously pretty snaps.
