International tourist mecca, Saint Tropez’s mythical village has played a largepart in the renown of the whole Côte d’ Azur. Saint Tropez became “St. Trop” when the show business people, artists and writers all fell under the spell of this charming little port in the 1950’s. In the summer one could bump into Picasso, Francoise Sagan, Jacques Prévert and many others. With the arrival of Brigitte Bardot in the 6O’s the myth was installed for good. Since then Saint Tropez has become the glamorous vacation spot for chic Parisians and the international jet set. 96 km from the hotel – 1h45′ drive.
