What to do on a weekend break in Saint-Tropez?
Our top adresses in Saint-Tropez
Although Saint-Tropez is renowned as a festive destination, its rich historic, cultural and artistic legacy remain somewhat lesser-known. Yet it was painters and artists that first propelled the village to fame in the early 20th century and travellers have flocked here from the world over ever since. You’ll find some of Saint-Tropez’s must-do addresses just a few steps from the hotel. Begin your tour with the Musée de la Gendarmerie et du Cinéma film museum situated just opposite the Hôtel de Paris Saint-Tropez. Next, head to the port to explore the charm-filled Musée de l’Annonciade, harbouring painting collections from the 19th and 20th centuries. You’ll find works by Signac, Seurat, Braque and more on show at this ancient chapel.
While you’re roaming the lanes around the port, stop off at Scarlett, the village’s most recent bookstore, offering a tempting selection of art and photography books. During your stroll, you will also come across several art galleries and interior design studios.
If you want to look your chic best while you savour the sunshine, a stop-off at Rondini is a must. Their premium-quality leather sandals have won the hearts of many celebrities, including Kate Moss. Guests with a sweet tooth definitely won’t want to miss a visit to Aux Deux Frères bakery, a little further on behind the fish market: the villagers are big fans of their caramelized fruit tart. Let us know what you think!
Your weekend in Saint-Tropez
A wide panel of seaside and inland walks awaits guests keen to pursue their discovery tour outside the village. For example, the Sentier du Littoral coastal footpath, winding its way past a series of coves to the famous golden sands of Pampelonne beach, is within easy reach of the hotel. Alternatively, how about hiring a Vespa or Mini Moke and venturing into the peninsula’s vineyards for the promise of a charming day out between sea and hills, topped with a walk in the vines, pastoral picnic and rosé wine tasting.
