Saint-Tropez, Summer’s Coolest Hotspot!

Thursday, May 31st, 2018
saint-tropez luxury villa

Film stars and royalty, families and friends – Saint-Tropez is an all-inviting destination that must be visited once, and is sure to lure you back time and again.

Put on the map thanks to Brigitte Bardot in ‘And God Created Woman’, visitors trickle in from mid-May onwards. This signals the start of summer for the French coastal town, when temperatures reach 22°, rising throughout July and August.

If you’re thinking of planning a chic get-away with sun, sea, shopping and seafood high on your list, then book early to secure a luxury villa to rent in Saint-Tropez.

Villa Victoria

Chic Sleeps

Effortlessly fashionable, the French Riviera has long attracted the jet-set community who enjoy the exclusivity of a Saint-Tropez luxury villa. And it’s easy to see why. With plenty of hilltops bathed in trees and greenery, it’s the perfect setting for luxury and privacy.

Saint-Tropez villas offer great variety too. Whether you’re looking for the perfect beachfront villa to soak up the sun, a stylish hilltop retreat for sweeping views, or a charming home-from-home for all the family – there’s something for everyone.

Nikki Beach

May and June

When Saint Tropez welcomes tourists in May, many come for its glorious but not too-hot temperature. This is also a great time to visit before the bustling crowds embark.

Ideal for a day trip, you may time your visit with the International Cannes Film Festival (18-19 May). Neighboring Cannes is only an hour and half by car, with great bars and VIP parties to enjoy. You’ll be glad of your luxury vacation rental in Saint-Tropez to retreat back to!

There’s plenty of cultural attractions too, from the Exhibition at the Annonciade museum (free entry), to the Spring Music Festival (April – August) in the renaissance cinema.

Pampelonne beach provides the perfect spot for sunbathing and swimming. Be sure to swing by Club 55 or Nikki Beach and do as the locals with an ‘Aperol Spritz’!

Le Voiles

You won’t want to miss the ceremony of some grand regatta events, the first of which is Les Voiles Latines Regatta (24-27 May), followed by the prestigious Giraglia Rolex Club (8-16 June). This is a haven for yacht men and women, especially in the Ponche quarter and Old Port.

 

Women Shopping

Luxury Living

The French are known for their great food and drink, and this is particularly celebrated in the Côte d’Azur, eating like a king wherever you dine!

Michelin star L’Olivier offers stunning food in its charming garden. Likewise, La Vague D’or has made quite a name for itself serving up culinary seafood masterpieces. Luxury doesn’t have to be five-star though, as Le Kikouiou demonstrates with al fresco dining and hearty pizzas. Alternatively, the Place des Lices is a fantastic market where you can scoop up local produce to enjoy back at your luxury rental villa.

On the note of shopping, the triangle between the Place de Lices, Rue Allard and Rue Gambetta is the place to go for designer shops. Here you can find everything from Louis Vuitton to Chanel. You are in Saint-Tropez after all!
