St. Tropez – not only Yachting Paradise


St. Tropez is a real Yachting Paradise! Located on France’s Cote d’Azur, it is everything its name evokes. It is a destination worthy of the rich, a seaside village ready to welcome visitors, and a backdrop appropriate enough for the Brigitte Bardot film “And God Created Woman”.

All of this makes St. Tropez popular with every person who appreciates cultural charm mixed into his or her vacation plans. St. Tropez is perfect for yacht charters because the port can accommodate everything from small bareboats and luxury mega charter yachts.

St. Tropez – not only Yachting Paradise

Once guests have arrived safely at the docks of St. Tropez, they have a nice array of choices for entertainment, and if they have timed their trip right, they also get to experience the world renowned regatta Les Voiles de St. Tropez.

When considering chartering a yacht for a French Riviera cruise, you should know that azure skies are the limit when it comes to high end luxury. Upon first setting sight of St. Tropez, you will notice that no yacht is too big, too ostentatious, or too opulent.

St. Tropez is a visual feast, and if you sail in on a modest catamaran, you will get to enjoy it just the same. Choose the powerboat, sailboat, or super yacht that best suits your group, and bear in mind that you won’t spend all of your time onboard once you’ve reached St. Tropez.

What would the south coast of France be without beautiful beaches? St. Tropez’s famous beaches, Plage de Pampelonne and Tahiti Beach, are worth visiting, especially if you are interested in people watching. There are restaurants and cafes here, of course, but it’s actually an outdoor market that comes most highly recommended for typical French provisioning.

Stop by the Place des Lices to shop for delectable picnic food, and then head to Tarte Tropezienne for the area’s outstanding namesake dessert. Cap off any evening with a drink at Les Caves du Roy, Le Papagayo, or Café Senequier.

By day, take your guests to Maison des Papillons to see a grand collection of butterflies, or challenge them to a match on the courts at Tennis Club de St. Tropez. The Musee de L’Annonciade is also a terrific option for visitors to the region who want to experience the beauty of St. Tropez as captured by famous artists over the years.
