What beautiful shops!
The summer has ended, the Christmas festivities are over and Saint-Tropez has once more resumed the rhythm of a charming village in the heart of winter. But it’s a lively village and commerce continues all year round. Fashion, design, culture; the shops of Saint-Tropez are just like their owners - varied, tasteful and at the forefront of the latest trends. Stock is passionately selected and is intended for a demanding clientele that is always searching for originality - you!
Where to head?
Fashion rhymes with glamour in Saint-Tropez. How about that gorgeous wool blend coat? It would look fabulous with those high boots that you glimpsed in the window of a nearby boutique! Accessories and jewellery are essential too as well as decorative items for the home. Now is the perfect time to give your home a makeover. And don’t forget to stop for a break in one of the city’s many cafes where, for now, the orgeat and rose wine of summer have been replaced with hot chocolate and mulled wines.
New season at Bastide Saint-Tropez
Make the most of the sales during your stay in Saint-Tropez; La Bastide de Saint-Tropez is ready to welcome you once again from 11th February. The reopening will allow you to discover the elegant new décor in some of our rooms. And, it’s a chance to come as a couple and sample our delicious Valentine's Day menu.
Love in Saint-Tropez
For the new 2017 season, we’ve redecorated some of our rooms. Why not discover them for yourself and enjoy a more romantic Valentine's Day? And, since we’re talking about the sweet feast of love, it’s time to take you into our confidence. We’ve heard rumours that Oliver, the head of our gourmet restaurant, and his team have been working at their stoves for some time. Pans, spatulas and whips have been brought out and the fragrance of many deliciously aromatic sauces filled the air. Pasta has been kneaded, meat braised, vegetables slices and thousands of different combinations of colour, flavour and textures have been tried out. Today, we’re delighted to announce that this Valentine’s meal will be exceptional! But hush! The final menu is still a secret.
Stroll overlooking the sea
If you’re coming to Saint-Tropez with your loved one, you’re sure to enjoy an easy and romantic walk along the coastal path.
From the Canebiers beach, the signposted path leads to Pampelonne beach and a loop through the interior makes it possible to return to the starting point without making a U-turn. It’s a nice stroll of about 12.5 km and although it’s not difficult you should still wear good walking shoes. The route talks about 4 hours if you walk slowly.
The trail crosses several fine sandy beaches and winds between rocks and maquis and you’ll see some of Saint-Tropez’s beautiful villas before you turn towards the sea. There are lots of small coves that are suitable for picnic breaks and a few steep rocky sections for added thrills. There is magnificent scenery as far as the eye can see; the sea on one side and the Provençal maquis on the other. You will appreciate the silence and you’ll love the feel of the sand under your shoes and stones warmed by the February sun beneath your hand. An easy but invigorating walk to try before you return to nestle in your cosy and comfortable room at the Bastide Saint-Tropez!Back to articles »
