Saint-Tropez at Christmas time
Published on in Saint-Tropez
Although Saint-Tropez is synonymous with beaches, partying and sunny days, the town retains all its charm during winter. Discover the beauty of a Provence Christmas and its gourmet traditions during the festive break and see the town adorned with a merry multitude of seasonal decorations. Your Hotel La Bastide de Saint-Tropez invites you to enjoy a special occasion: the switching on of the town’s Christmas illuminations!
Mark December 3rd on your calendar
While traders and artisans have been getting ready for several weeks, the Christmas season truly kicks off in Saint-Tropez on December 3rd with the grand switch-on of the Christmas illuminations. The lighting of all the decorations at 18:00 is a wonderfully celebratory moment. There’s a beautiful sparkling Christmas tree and many gorgeous decorations as well as the traditional nativity scene in the Eglise de la Miséricorde. Don’t miss the opportunity to stroll on the quays and see the light show that brings a magical Yuletide atmosphere to the seafront.
Shopping and ice skating
The inauguration of the illuminations takes place at the same time as the ice rink opens in the Place des Lices. In summer, the square is where pétanque players gather, but during the mild Provençal winters it becomes the perfect setting for ice skating. A few streets away, in the Place du XVe Corps de Garde, you’ll find the charming little chalets of the Christmas market and its wide choice of traditional local products, the fruits of an artisanal tradition that is still very much alive in our region. A wide choice of wonderful gifts to go under your tree!
The Bastide de Saint-Tropez welcomes you on the shores of the Mediterranean, even in the heart of winter, enabling you discover the warmth of Christmas in Provence. Don't miss the switching on of the Christmas illuminations, a festive occasion to get you in the mood for the big day!
