A little port that was brought beautifully to life by Signac and Matisse, Saint Tropez exploded onto the scene thanks to Brigitte Bardot in the 1960s. Glamorous Saint Tropez is synonymous with the red carpet and sunlight that shine on through frenzied nights of endless champagne. The international jet-set have made this charming yellow- and orange-tinged port their own, with grandiose yachts bobbing at the shore and contributing to Saint Tropez's legendary status as the spiritual home of France's celebrities.
Wander along the Gulf of Saint Tropez and explore the town's iconic beaches. The Bay of Pampelonne is home to the region's best-known beaches where the jet-set flock to hit the dance floors in high season. The pleasant Sainte-Maxime and Port-Grimaud beaches make for ideal swimming spots, too.
