Saint Tropez is famous for its beaches and sunshine, but it is so much more than that. Over the course of the 20th century it became inundated with artists of the French New Wave and is therefore full of culture. Saint Tropez has everything to offer: beaches for those who want to tan, clubs for those who like to party and museums showcasing the 20th century artists' works, for example, in the Musée de l'Annonciade. Whether you're looking for a family holiday or a weekend away to party with friends, Likibu can find you the best holiday rentals in Saint Tropez.
When is the best time to visit St. Tropez?
If you're going for a beach holiday, July and August are the best months to go to Saint Tropez. These are the hottest and driest months of the year so you can enjoy the sunshine and beautiful beaches without having to worry about any rain. It will, however, also be the busiest time of year as this makes it inevitably peak tourist season. Spring and autumn months are still extremely pleasurable because the climate is mild. A Christmas holiday here is also not out of the question due to the fact the temperature rarely reaches freezing, yet it is still cold enough to get the whole family feeling festive with the added bonus of being on one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world.
How to get there?
Saint Tropez is located on the Mediterranean coast in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region of south-eastern France. It can be accessed by boat on one of the ferry services that run throughout the summer season from other coastal cities and towns in the region, such as Nice or Cannes. The closest operating airport is Toulon Hyères Airport (approx. 32 miles away) or Nice Côte d'Azur Airport (approx. 59 miles away). By land, the easiest way to get to Saint Tropez is by bus or car because it has no train station. If going by train is the best option for you, the closest station is Saint Raphaël-Valescure in Saint-Raphaël, which is about 24 miles away and offers a bus service straight to Saint Tropez.

The Old Town
This is the oldest part of Saint Tropez and is only a short walk from the marina, whose bars and clubs make this town's nightlife famous worldwide. It is situated all within one square kilometre and the pedestrianised roads make it perfect to explore on foot. You can explore the extensive selection of apartments in this idyllic town centre in order to find your perfect holiday rental.
Outside the compact town centre, you can find luxury holiday rentals with more space and privacy, such as holiday villas with private pools and modern apartments - all with amazing sea views. Stay by the Porte de Saint Tropez marina to be within walking distance to the shops, bars and renowned nightlife. As well as this, the areas to the south and east of St.Tropez like Sainte-Jaune or Sant-Bonaventure are stunning areas with a mixture of villas and hotels.
If you want to soak up the sun as much as possible or be right in the heart of the beach nightlife, there are a variety of holiday rentals in the Pampelonne beach area. There are family friendly holiday villages and holiday villas to rent between friends for a beach partying getaway - all only a shuttle bus trip away from Saint Tropez.
For luxury holiday rentals further out in the countryside why not book a beautiful holiday villa in Ramatuelle, a village on the hills behind Pampelonne beach? Here you can find peace and quiet as well as the most scenic of coastal views. This is ideal for families and romantic getaways alike.
Things to do in St. Tropez?
Musée de l'Annonciade
Here you will find a 16th century chapel that has been renovated into a museum that showcases the work of avant-garde 20th century artists who lived in Saint Tropez. Most of the collection is made up of pointillist, Nabis and Fauvist movements. This is the perfect place for any art enthusiast or for a relaxing break from partying on the beach.
Saint Tropez is world renowned for its night scene, much of which is extremely exclusive and prestigious. With some of the best clubs in France and even worldwide, you are sure to experience a night out like no other and feel like a celebrity. The discotheques are on the marina as well as on the beach (Pampelonne being the most famous) so you can get an experience of both fancy and seaside clubbing.
Before Saint Tropez became known for its nightlife, the citadel that crowns the town was of vital importance in protecting the coast from foreign invaders. Building of the citadel began in 1602 and it is typical of coastal fortifications of the time. It has now been transformed into a museum of maritime history, telling the stories of the generations of sailors and seamen that have shaped history to make Saint Tropez what it is today.
