Protected by a small gulf and surrounded by a crystal-clear sea, Saint Tropez is one of the best-loved and most popular destinations on the French Riviera / Côte d’Azur. Small in size but hugely prestigious and famous, the city of Saint Tropez is host year after year to the world’s, and especially Italy’s jet-set.
The city’s magnificent historic centre was founded by Ligurian peoples and in later times frequented by Etruscans and Romans. Its outstanding location for the growth of trade made Saint Tropez, formerly known as Athenopolis, a wealthy and flourishing hub.
Over the centuries, Saracens, Knights of Malta and trading fleets all had their influence on the village’s structure, turning it into today’s architectural gem and an interesting place to visit both historically and culturally.
Saint Tropez is internationally known as the preferred destination of VIP’s who came here from all over the world to spend their holiday on luxury motor yacht charters. Private beaches, aperitif bars, prestigious night spots, four-star hotels and luxurious villas are the ingredients that go into making this little town the favourite spot among elite tourists who want to see and be seen. In the 1960’s, Brigitte Bardot and many other stars have contributed to making Saint Tropez the place to be in summer. Even today “Saint Trop” can boast of being a favourite among fans of “hot summer nights” aboard mega-yachts or in private villas right out of a Thousand and One Nights, not to mention the many nightclubs that for years have charmed both occasional visitors and “habitue´s”.
