St Tropez Luxury Yachting Guide

Considered one of the most ostentatious destinations in the world, this elegant seaside town rests along the Cote d’Azur’s stunning coastline. Littered with extravagant restaurants, private beaches and prestigious clubs, St.Tropez is the embodiment of indulgence with truly opulent service offered at every turn.

Widely known for its hedonistic lifestyle, St.Tropez is sure to afford an experience not soon forgotten. Adopted as a summer escape by the beat poets in the 1960’s, St.Tropez has been transformed from a humble village offering little more than a sandal shop into a bastion of the world’s most famous faces.

Popularized by Brigitte Bardot in Vadim’s ‘And God Created Woman’, the streets of modern-day St.Tropez may be over-run with well-dressed dogs and couturiers but the heart of the town remains the same. Essentially a small fishing village topped with pastel villas, winding alleyways and Provençal-style markets full of local produce, St.Tropez is a charming French town rich with history and a maritime sensibility.

With an extensive program taking place annually, St.Tropez holds a selection of exclusive affairs on land and sea whose high standards are world renowned. The International Polo Cup is a ten-day knockout tournament attracting aficionados and spectators of this graceful sport, and has been in existence for over a century. Les Voiles de St. Tropez is a week long regatta with packed with activities sure to delight the heart of any true yachtsman. Despite the presence of the sometimes inhibiting mistral, this exhibition of nautical prowess takes place in the fall and attracts yachts from every class to compete for the coveted Rolex Trophy.

Due to its popularity among nautical aficionados, the port of St.Tropez is a bustling, well-stocked marina. Split into the old harbour and a new marina, the Port de St.Tropez can accommodate all but the largest yachts, up to 100m in length, along with ample mooring and dock space. Cafés and bistros line the quay, and are considered the front-row seats for people-watching, as this is one of the ultimate see-and-be-seen towns.
