St Tropez: the playground of the rich and famous, and one of the most glamorous vacation spots in the world. The name has resonated ever since Brigit Bardot discovered a little fishing village and made it sexy. Now the Vieux Port harbor glistens with luxury yachts and throbs with the day trippers who come to engage in a bit of celebrity spotting.
The rest of the town still manages to retain its charm, with lots of winding cobblestone streets dotted with cafes and patisseries, lush green plane trees and colorful stone houses with wooden shutters. The charming Place des Lices square, where old men play petanque, is set against the backdrop of the clear azure waters of the Mediterranean.
We have a range of beachfront luxury villas to rent in St Tropez, secluded properties overlooking the bay, with landscaped gardens and dreamy swimming pools, and huge mansions nestled on the heights of the peninsula offering a peaceful holiday and panoramic views.
St Tropez has a myriad of fine restaurants, stylish bistros and brasseries, as well as old traditional establishments offering Provencal cooking. And there’s a whole host of bustling bars, from swanky portside cafes to laid back rooftop terrace bars and New York loft-style nightclubs. You’ll also find a couple of nice museums and art galleries, a Baroque church from the 18th century and a small chapel with a pretty bell tower from 100 years earlier, as well as a citadel which overlooks the town. There are many fantastic sandy beaches lined with restaurants, beach bars and café kiosks and offering all the usual water sports – and a few of the beaches are naturist.
St Tropez is both fashionable and elite, both private and public, lavish and extravagant while at the same time retaining its Gallic charm, and, with Unique Living offices nearby to assist you in every way, this is a place you simply have to visit.
