Beach hop in St Tropez

St Tropez

Dreaming of a life of fame and fortune? We can’t really help you achieve that, but we can give you a taste of it in St Tropez. Once a quiet fishing village, the town shot to fame in the 1950s thanks to one Brigitte Bardot. While it’s overrun by tourists during the summer months, it’s still possible to experience the real St Tropez in the low season – sunning yourself on a quiet beach, sipping an aperitif in a cobbled plaza, or indulging in fresh-caught seafood in a beachfront restaurant.
