Last week I had the pleasure of visiting again with my husband & dear friends. Here is a recap of our favorites from the trip!
Where We Stayed:
This charming boutique hotel literally made us feel like family guests at their home - we absolutely loved our stay perched in the hills overlooking the Mediterranean. August in St. Tropez can be hot so it was nice to have a cool respite in the hills.
Lunches and Beach Clubs
Le Club 55
With a Provençal feel, packed with glamorous jet set and the original of all the beach clubs..it's a classic spot not to be missed.
Les Palmiers in the bay of Ramatuelle may have been our favorite beach club. The atmosphere was totally chic, the food was incredible & not to mention the DJ was spinning great music. We followed lunch with beach beds (reserved in advance) and a dip in the Med. It was a perfect vibe.
Gigi, also in Ramatuelle, was an amazing lunch experience with a beautiful pool. We loved Gigi for the gorgeous decor, and a more relaxed and elegant atmosphere. It also boasted a great boutique for shopping mid courses (!) There was live music which was such a treat and the food was top notch. The homemade Nutella waffle à partager was unforgettable.
Indie Beach was another great spot, with a relaxed bohemian mood. We learned that this beach club has a really fun dinner hour with music which we plan to try next trip!
St. Tropez has great shopping - from the big names like Hermes & Loewe to local French boutiques with unique finds. The bi-weekly marché in the Place des Lices (happens every Tuesday & Saturday) with everything from fresh baguettes and flowers to carved horn utensils and provençal soaps was a lively morning activity...I always love treasure hunting!
Nightime in St. Tropez
On our way to La Petite Plage...I highly recommend it for a dinner by the Port and to walk along the marina and admire all of the mega yachts.
