Ramatuelle / Saint Tropez
WELCOME TO RAMATUELLE/SAINT-TROPEZ

St Tropez is a town on the French Riviera and began life as a military stronghold and fishing village and remained so until the beginning of the 20th century.

St Tropez  was the first town on its coast to be liberated during World War II and later, it became an internationally known seaside resort,  renowned  principally because of the influx of artists who were part of the  French New Wave in cinema. It later became a resort for wealthy European and American tourists. 

Famous St Tropez resident Brigitte Bardot came to St-Tropez in the 1950s and was “discovered”  after starring in Et Dieu Créa la Femme (And God Created Woman; 1956). Overnight the town transformed the peaceful fishing village of St Tropez into a  glamorous destination for those wanting to combine casual luxury in an up market setting.

The yachts of the rich and famous can be seen  at the Vieux Port, where tourists stroll by to admire them and the bars opposite offer a great place for people watching as the sun goes down.

Surrounded by around 40 different beaches, including the famous Pampelonne beach, St Tropez offers plenty of places to relax,  as well as lots of places to shop and eat. From luxury stores and high end eateries to the more informal markets and cafes there is something for everyone.
