Why You Should Stay in Saint Tropez Villas

Saint Tropez is known for its glitz and glamour: the town is popular with A-listers, boasts a vibrant nightlife scene and is home to stylish beach clubs and swanky dining venues. But there’s more to the destination than its glamorous facade suggests—beneath it is a charming seaside town with scenic coastlines, picturesque streets and a variety of attractions to explore.

Family activities in Saint Tropez

A leisurely afternoon begins with a stroll along the Vieux Port, located about 10 minutes’ drive from your Saint Tropez villa. Take in the sight of fishing boats, yachts and colourful houses, before stopping for a coffee at one of the many cafes lining the promenade.
There are several attractions situated within walking distance from the Vieux Port. Discover a collection of paintings depicting Saint Tropez at Musée de l’Annonciade. The museum was converted from a 16th century chapel, and features artworks by artists from the post-Impressionist and Expressionist schools, including Paul Signac, Henri Matisse and André Dérain. La Maison des Papillons, located just a two-minute walk from the museum, houses an impressive collection of butterfly species.
The Citadel of St Tropez, located a 10-minute walk from the Vieux Port is a great place to visit with kids. Work off excess energy with a walk around the fortress, and explore the grounds within the citadel. The Museum of Maritime History, located inside the main building offers detailed insights into the history of the towns, and has a collection of artefacts on display.
Between the Vieux Port and the Citadel lies La Ponche, the old quarter of the town. Wander through its cobblestone streets to discover an array of shops and restaurants. Visit the Notre Dame de l'Assomption, a charming church complete with baroque interiors, or enjoy a seaside stroll at La Ponche Beach. If you’re in town during mid-May, you’ll get to partake in the local festivities. On May 15 and 16, locals celebrate Les Bravades with a lively street procession.
Make your way over to Place des Lices, a postcard-pretty central square peppered with plane trees, petanque courts and cafes. The Place des Lices Market, which takes place twice a week, features numerous stalls selling handmade ornaments, clothes and fresh local produce. It’s a great place to stock up on fresh ingredients for self-catering at your Saint Tropez villa.
Away from the heart of the town, take your kids on a day trip to Azur Park, an amusement park with over 35 attractions. Or embark on an adventure high up in the tree tops at the acrobatic adventure park at Grimaud Aventure. The attraction features 10 courses, and there are sections in the park with activities and challenges for kids between the ages of three and 10. Both attractions are located about 20 minutes’ drive from your Saint Tropez villa.

Activities and points of interest in Saint Tropez

Your vacation won’t be complete without soaking up the breezy Mediterranean vibes at the beach. The most famous beach in town is Pampelonne Beach. The coast stretches out over five kilometres, and is often busy with a crowd of beach-goers (you might spot a celebrity or two). Bouillabaisse beach is quieter and more low-key in comparison, so it’s ideal for a relaxing family outing with kids.
Saint Tropez is known for its beach clubs—so you’ll have plenty of options if you want to lounge in style. Kick back with a cocktail at the legendary Club 55, a venue that’s visited by the likes of Kate Moss, Bono and Sylvester Stallone. We also recommend checking out Byblos Beach restaurant and La Réserve à la Plage.
The town comes alive after dusk, as party-goers gear up for a night of fun and revelry. The varied nightlife scene offers something for every Saint Tropez villa vacationer—whether you want to dance the night away, or prefer relaxing at a bar with a view.
The party hotspots include Les Caves du Roy, VIP Room and GAÏO. If you prefer unwinding with a post-dinner tipple, your options include the trendy Bar du Pont, or the cosy and intimate Le Petit Bar. L’Opera Saint Tropez offers a different late-night experience: the stylish venue combines fine-dining with art installations, light shows and burlesque performances.

Saint Tropez’s restaurants, cafes & bars

If you’re dining out in the heart of the town, your options include Au Caprice Des Deux Restaurant Bistronomic À Saint-Tropez and La Cucina Byblos. The former offers mouthwatering Provencal fare with a contemporary twist, while the latter checks off all the right boxes as a fine-dining venue.
Want to get away from the bustling crowds, and dine at a tucked-away venue overlooking the vineyards? Head to Le Kikouiou, a restaurant that offers a rustic, relaxed ambience accompanied by scrumptious food and good wines.
Dior Des Lices, located within the grounds of the sumptuous House of Dior château is great for all-day dining. And there’s no better place to round out your Saint Tropez villa vacation than with a meal at the acclaimed three Michelin-star venue La Vague d’Or.
