St-Tropez a seaside town




We spent an enjoyable day walking round the town and harbour. It was just over one hours drive from our rented house near Cannes

Saint Tropez is a small seaside town on the beach in the south of France. It has public and private beaches both nude and otherwise.It is an expensive place prices are higher here than further up the coast. We did however splash out on 2 coffee before we left.

The best time to go is April to early June or September. The town gets very busy in the peak months During winter, the weather here can be miserable St. Tropez faces north, and picks up the cold weather of the mistral.

St Tropez

The town is reached on a narrow coast road which gets blocked with traffic. It can be better to go further up the coast to St Raphael and travel by boat.

The boat leaves every couple of hours and the short journey takes about 50 mins. Try this local map of the area

In the town you will find a chapel that has been converted to one of the best art galleries in the country works to be found Matisse's Corsican Landscape and Vuillard's Two Women by Lamplight.
