Posted in Loupinet
What to do in Saint-Tropez during your stay in Provence? Let yourself be transported by its bewitching light, its sumptuous beaches with turquoise water, its rich and fascinating history, its gastronomy and its wild parties. Lovers of the sea, night owls, history and culture enthusiasts, Saint-Tropez offers you the promise of an enchanted interlude far from everyday life, carried by the incomparable softness of the Mediterranean art of living.
Discover the must-see sites of Saint-Tropez
In the early morning, when the bay is still asleep, start your day with a walk along the old port of Saint-Tropez. Walk along its traditional and colourful facades before stopping for a coffee in front of the sumptuous sailboats and yachts. Stroll through the narrow streets of the old town until you see the iconic ochre bell tower of the parish church Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption. Take the time to admire its baroque style and its beautiful woodwork before heading to the mythical Place des Lices. In the shade of the hundred-year-old plane trees or comfortably installed on one of the terraces surrounding the square, enjoy a moment of authentic conviviality or let yourself be tempted by a traditional game of pétanque. On Tuesday and Saturday mornings, the stalls full of local products dress up the historic square for the unmissable Saint-Tropez market. At nightfall, put on your best outfit to attend a famous Tropezian party!
Dive into the heart of its history
Take advantage of your visit to the most beautiful village on the French Riviera to immerse yourself in its history and culture. Art lovers will start with the Annonciade museum, dedicated to the painters of colour. Discover the work of the masters of the Pointillist, Nabis and Fauvist movements and let yourself be captivated by the works of Signac, Matisse, Camoin, Derain or Cross... Another must-see of your stay is the Citadelle and its maritime history museum which retraces the wonderful history of the city's inhabitants. Before going back to the hotel or after a day at the beach, don't miss the legendary old gendarmerie of Saint-Tropez! The museum of the gendarmerie and cinema museum invites you to rediscover, with a touch of nostalgia, Louis de Funès and the characters of the famous series of gendarmes, but also Romy Schneider and Brigitte Bardot at the time of the shootings of "Et Dieu... créa la femme" (And God... created women) and "La Piscine" (The Pool).
Lounging on the idyllic beaches of Saint-Tropez
From small rocky coves to the mythical beaches of the Bay of Pampelonne, the Gulf of Saint-Tropez is full of natural treasures. Stop at the Ponche beach, a small mythical beach sheltered by the ramparts of Saint-Tropez, before taking the coastal path to Ramatuelle, where the paradisiacal beaches follow one another along more than 10 km of coastline. For a lunch with your feet in the water or a long day of idleness rocked by the sound of the waves, enjoy a moment of absolute relaxation on the most beautiful beaches of the French Riviera.
Taste the delicious Tropezian gastronomy
As a former fishing village, the city's restaurants offer Provencal cuisine rich in fish, shellfish and crustaceans. Some specialities not to be missed: the famous bouillabaisse at Camille's, the succulent nougat at Senéquier's, the delicious wines of Provence and last but not least the famous Tropezian pie, a mythical sweet that has become the symbol of Saint-Tropez gastronomy.
