Vacationing in St Tropez
Those looking for sunshine, fabulous beach restaurants, and a free-spirited way of life will find it in St Tropez. Reserve a table at Club 55 on Pampelonne beach, or an evening at the famous nightclub, Les Caves du Roi, for a quintessential night of dancing and people watching.
St Tropez's port, once a simple fishing village, is now the summer home of mega yachts to classic sailboats, and reigns as the hub of sailing activity in the Med throughout the summer. A more simple way of life still exists amidst the glamour of designer boutiques, however. Despite the tourism, traditions of the Tropeziennes continue throughout the year: men gather in the evenings to play boule, a form of lawn bowling, in the town square Places des Lices, which then give way to lively Saturday mornings.
Stop by the citadel, a fortified castle built in the 16th century, or the Le Musee de l'Annonciade, home to a collection of fine Impressionist art by Monet, Renoir & Degas. With direct flights to Nice, St Tropez can be an easy getaway.
