It’s best known for glorious summer sunshine, but the port of Saint-Tropez is also a place of endless charm in winter, especially when it comes to the Christmas celebrations. In truth, the town’s delights are perennial, offering a warm and friendly atmosphere through the festive season and beyond. This year, give yourself and your loved ones an original and unforgettable Christmas experience by enjoying a break in Saint-Tropez, right on the beautiful blue Mediterranean Sea.
Joyous illuminations light up the town
Starting on December 7th at 18:00, the beautiful lights of Christmas will adorn the town and small port of Saint-Tropez, creating an atmosphere of enchantment and delicious anticipation. The facades of the pretty houses are covered with small lights with white tones, and the trees are decorated with beautiful blue garlands. From the harbour to the old town, all Saint-Tropez is dressed for the holidays amidst a magical and distinctly Provençal ambiance. Once night falls, you’ll have the pleasure of seeing these Christmas lights reflected in the sea, adding a sprinkling of fairy dust to the rhythm of the waves. Splendid!
Enjoy the ice rink in the heart of the town
For the occasion of the end of year festivities, Saint-Tropez invites you to go ice-skating in the town, just a few metres from the sea! Strap on your skates and impress us with your skills, or simply enjoy the feeling of gliding in the midst of the superb scenery that constitutes the old town of Saint-Tropez lit by Christmas illuminations. The Tropéziens delight in it, visitors fall in love with it, so come along and have fun ice skating in this world-famous Provence location.
An extraordinary Nativity scene in Saint-Tropez
With santons (Christmas crib figures) being originally Provencal, a Nativity scene could only be this extraordinary in Saint-Tropez. Come admire the huge crib, with all the characters represented in exquisite detail, presented in the Chapelle de la Miséricorde on the Rue Gambetta. Children are entranced by it, and it melts the hearts of adults, so this Nativity scene offers an ideal outing for the whole family.
