Why Saint Tropez is one of Europe’s top holiday destinations

Last updated on

Once a small fishing village in which there were not even holiday houses not to talk about expensive luxury hotels, Saint-Tropez today is one of the celebrity hotspots par excellence. Famous people such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Naomi Campell and P.Diddy occasionally sail with their private yacht here, but also “normal holidaymakers”, who go on a round trip through southern France, like to stop here. The glamorous place, which by the way does not even number 5000 inhabitants, is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe for the rich and famous today. Paradizo has been renting out luxury villas in Saint Tropez for many years and therefore we thought to give you some insights and present you our crown jewels so you can get some inspiration for your next holiday.





Strolling through this enchanting town, you quickly lose your charm. Small narrow streets lead past picturesque courtyards decorated with olive trees, here and there you can always see delightful sights.  Of course, there is the famous yacht harbor of Saint-Tropez, one of the most popular photographs of the city, especially at sunset. It is divided into two parts – the so-called “New Port” and the “Old Port”. Stroll along the harbor promenade from one end to the other, past sailing boats and luxurious yachts on the one hand, and picturesque house facades and fine boutiques, restaurants and cafes on the other. Once you are at the New Port, you should definitely go to the unique Citadel, which is home to the National Marine Museum, which focuses on French maritime navigation. Another highlight of the tour is the breathtaking view of Saint-Tropez and the surrounding harbor towns from the roof of the citadel.






After a long day of fantastic sightseeing you can relax in on of Saint Tropez wonderful white dreamy sandy beaches.  An enchanting little sandy beach is located right next to the citadel, on the Chemin des Graniers, which is why it is called simply “The Granier”. When you are lucky this beach will be empty so you can enjoy some silence away from the crowds.  Slightly larger is the beautiful beach of Canabiers, which is a little further to the east. The most famous beach of the entire Côte d’Azur is  the legendary Plage de Pampelonne. This long sandy beach, which is mostly part of the neighboring village of Ramatuelle, the celebrities  like to bathe here. Hip clubs and bars such as Le Club 55 ensure that you can end a successful day in the beautiful Saint-Tropez glamorous.





Yes, as you can see, Saint-Tropez is, without doubt, referred to as the “cradle of the international jet set” for good reason.
