In the footsteps of the absolute icon of the 60's, Brigitte Bardot
Published on in Saint-Tropez
Although the small fishing village of Saint-Tropez was already a favourite retreat for artists, writers and intellectuals, it developed its current reputation in the 60s, thanks to the screen goddess, Brigitte Bardot. Now inseparably intertwined in the public mind, both resort and star evoke images of glamour, parties and the jet set. Immerse yourself in this timeless atmosphere during your stay at the Bastide de Saint-Tropez!
The Saint-Tropez of Brigitte Bardot
Don’t expect to meet this movie idol of the 50s and 60s at the market or on the beach as she is very discreet and even reclusive. However, the whole of the resort carries echoes of her presence. Of course, the locals will show you the walls of her famous property, La Madrague, immortalized in a song and today dedicated to the cause of animal welfare. They will also guide you to the recently unveiled statue of the actress developed from a sketch made during the filming of her classic movie, And God Created Woman.
The tropézienne ambiance
Experiencing Brigitte Bardot's Saint-Tropez means appreciating all that the star has seen and done in, and for, the resort. On your way to the Bastide de Saint-Tropez, you will immediately perceive the subtle balance between luxury and authenticity, the refinement of restaurants, art galleries, nightspots, and the natural spontaneity of the locals. Then you will find that you enjoy the constant equilibrium between the tranquillity of your hotel and the small discreet coves dotted along the coast and the colourful and vibrant atmosphere of the town’s discotheques and private beaches. It’s truly art de vivre in action!
Although she has not appeared onscreen since 1973, Brigitte Bardot remains an absolute star; a paragon of triumphant femininity. Saint-Tropez celebrates its icon as much as it protects her and invites you to experience everything that she found so enchanting here.
