The Bastide de Saint-Tropez team invites you to discover a popular and highly anticipated festival: ARMEN. This year, the prestigious regatta, ski event and art exhibition will take place from February 24th to March 5th. An excellent opportunity to discover how vibrant life can be during the winter in Provence…


ARMEN: all the passions of Saint-Tropez

It's all in the name! ARMEN refers to the famous Brittany lighthouse that has offered solace to sailors, but it’s also a contraction of ARt, MEr (sea) and Neige (snow). The ARMEN Festival takes place as much in the port’s exhibition halls as on the waves of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez and the ski slopes of Isola 2000, one of the closest winter sports resorts to the port. The festival, organised by the Société Nautique, takes place over ten days. The two weekends are devoted to sailing regattas and the Friday to ski competitions. And, to add to the challenge, each crew must produce a work of art on a particular theme...



When you stay at the Bastide de Saint-Tropez during the ARMEN Festival, you will discover the port in a state of high excitement. The inhabitants and regulars of the Société Nautique welcome the participants in a warm and friendly spirit and offer opportunities to get together and share their passions. Up to 70 boats have been entered in previous editions, and their sails fill the Gulf of Saint-Tropez with colour, creating a simply bewitching spectacle while the exhibitions devoted to art offer delightful surprises. What’s more, the climb during the festival’s ski day to Isola 2000 gives you the opportunity to admire the diversity of landscapes and ambiances of our beautiful region.


Savour the soft winter sun and friendly atmosphere of Saint-Tropez in late winter by visiting the ARMEN Festival. The Bastide de Saint-Tropez team will advise you on the best way to enjoy the occasion!
