Welcome to Saint Tropez

Travelling to St Tropez in summer is better by sea than road.

A shuttle service runs every 15 minutes between Sainte Maxime and her more famous neighbour. Out across the Golfe. Sit inside if you don’t want to get wet, especially on choppy days, outside for exhilaration and the view.

You go to St Tropez, when you’re on the Côte d’Azur, because you feel you have to. In the season it’s as much a theme park as any other.

Day-trip in August if you must but come back, if you can, in October or April. Savour the difference.
