Saint-Tropez, one of the world’s most famous villages, is located along the coast amongst vineyards and the sandy beaches of Pampelonne.

For centuries, St. Tropez remained a small, quiet fisherman’s village. In the 1920s St. Tropez became popular with famous fashion designers, such as Coco Chanel and, during World War II, it was the first town on this part of the coast to be liberated.

However, it wasn’t until the release of “And God Created Woman” in 1956, starring Brigitte Bardot, that St. Tropez was put on the world map as one of the hottest travel destinations. This popularity was laregely due to Brigitte Bardot who was spotted wearing a bikini in St. Tropez while filming – a novelty at the time. The town quickly grew a reputation of being the ‘playground for the rich and famous’ with its beautiful beaches, luxury yachts, and designer boutiques.

This small seaside resort offers so much more than its nightlife and sunbathing celebrities. The picturesque, pastel-colored houses, narrow and winding cobblestone streets, and shady squares offer a wonderful sense of Provencal charm. Moreover, Saint-Tropez is surrounded by its beautiful, preserved countryside full of pine trees, olive groves and vineyards.

Louis de Funès, who became famous for his role as a police officer in the French comedy film series ‘Le Gendarme de Saint-Tropez’, helped establish the international image of Saint-Tropez as both a quiet town and jet set hotspot.
