The Cote D’Azur says terra-cotta walls against a relentlessly blue sky. It’s a painting that lives.
The Citadel de St Tropez is a classic monument worth seeing if you like to combine history and a beautiful view. Afterwards vineyards such as Mas de Chastelas, Bertrand Bellieu, Chateau de Mares and Chateau Minuty offer visits by appointment- it’s an educational lunch with a glass of rosé.
The recently-opened Kube hotel is located right before you enter the village. It boasts 3 pools, spacious rooms, spa, restaurants, rooftop bar and excellent service. The ambiance is completely relaxed and their shuttle takes you into town anytime of day. If you want a beach hotel the options are more limited but Club 55 has a few rooms you can book one year in advance if you want to walk over to lunch after your morning wake up dip in the Mediterranean!

I like the Grand Joseph in the marina, a classic for seafood with a specialty in crustaceans. Le Ban Hoi offers Thai food with international options in town, a small cobblestone walk from the shops where local artist exibit their wares. It’s more casual than other classics like Brasserie des Arts located in the main square of Place des Lices with its music & dance dinner venue. In the port, Barbarac has the most tasty ice cream and Le Senequier is great for a morning coffee or casual aperitif before dinner.
The market on Saturdays in the main square is a feast for the eyes with local offers from clothing, cheese and meats to flowers and wines. The light pink rosé is a great gift to carry home and the homemade soaps are a delight. Atelier sur Sandalen sur messure offers custom-made leather sandals and shoes in minutes.
