St Tropez Luxury Yacht Charter Planning Guide
Saint Tropez Luxury Yacht Charter Planning Guide
Ever since the beautiful, blonde bombshell, Brigitte Bardot, stepped out on set of ‘Et Dieu Créa La Femme’ in the 1950s, the peaceful fishing village of Saint Tropez has been a hotspot for glamour, movie stars and luxury. Both a party town and quiet village, one could say that St Tropez charmingly captures elements of its rustic past whilst offering sophisticated glamour to those heading to the trendiest beach clubs and restaurants. Discover the delights of the picturesque and cobbled Old Town, the luxury of Pampelonne beach and the magnificent avant-garde Musée de l’Annonciade.
Day Charters to Saint Tropez
At the height of summer, a visit to St. Tropez and Pampelonne Beach makes a great day charter. We highly recommend starting your yacht charter in Cannes as many yachts are based here, anchoring up for an island adventure at the magical Îles de Lérins just off the coast of Cannes, then continue to cruise to the magnificent Saint Tropez.
Step back in time in the charming Old Town of St. Tropez for shuttered windows, cobbled streets and rustic charm. Pop into the luxury boutiques, pick up a pair of new shorts in the flagship Vilebrequin shop or stop for a coffee at Dior Des Lices. Enjoy lunch at Senequier in the Old Port and watch the glitz and the glam go by from the bustling and world renowned waterside restaurant Sénéquier.
For the culture cravers, be sure to visit the Musée de l’Annonciade. Often considered to be one of the first museums of modern art in France, this 16th century converted chapel is home to a surprisingly broad collection of avant-garde art from the 1890s onwards. To name a few, you can see the works of Paul Signac, Bonnard, Vuillard and even Picasso.
For an equally magical and moving experience head to the Maison des Papillons where you can view a magnificent collection of over 35,000 butterflies, carefully preserved for the public to admire.
Around 10km south from Saint Tropez is Pampelonne Beach, known to be one of the most beautiful stretches of beach in the world. A large variety of restaurants and beach clubs line the beach, including none other than the world famous Club 55 - the club of choice for celebrities who visit the Riviera. Have a read of our blog to see where the rich and famous hang out, Club 55 is the place to see and be seen.
For those who seek a laid-back and calm family atmosphere, be sure to stop by Tahiti Beach - instantly recognisable by their orange parasoles and matelas. We would highly recommend their famous seafood! If you seek an up-beat glamorous atmosphere beach, there is no better to place to make a reservation than at Nikki Beach St Tropez. Their world famous parties, popular DJ sets, champagne showers and season fresh food attract only the trendiest of crowds.
Every year, at the end of the summer season, over 300 sailing yachts and 4,000 sailors from all around the world compete in one of the most thrilling events in the yachting calendar. Bringing together fantastic modern sailing boats alongside the most beautiful traditional yachts, this regatta is as exciting for spectators as it is for the competitors. If you would like to charter a yacht to view the Voiles de St Tropez, or even help crew on a racing yacht, please see our guide to the event here.
