During the 1920’s, St Tropez attracted some of the biggest names in the Fashion world including the one and only Coco Chanel. After spending most of the week in Cannes, we decided to get a boat over to St Tropez to celebrate our anniversary and explore the beautiful town on the French Riviera.
The boat cost €50 each and took just over an hour, safe to say I was a little green by the time we arrived! We began exploring the streets of St Tropez, and I totally fell in love! The terracotta colours, beautiful shutters on all of the windows and of course some of the most luxurious brands lined the cobbled streets .
We were lucky to get just over an hour of sunshine before the heavens opened, and my god did it rain! Dressed for the occasion in a bardot dress and sliders, I felt far from glamorous running for shelter. We found a restaurant, ran inside and cheered up the weather with burgers and wine! Although the streets were lined with every high end luxury brand you can imagine, St Tropez felt so different to Monaco, it was much less ‘showy’ and more how I expected the French Riviera to be. Had the weather have been a little better, I know this would have been my favourite place from our holiday.
There was a beautiful market running through the centre of St Tropez, set back from the designer brands where you could pick up the usual tourist items such as your ‘I Love St Tropez’ t-shirt which unfortunately they’d sold out of in my size *jokes*, fresh fruit and lots of home textile items. We only managed to check out a couple of stalls before the weather turned but its definitely somewhere I would recommend you visit.

I have to say, the journey back was far worse than on the way out with the rain so not quite as enjoyable but I would definitely head back to St Tropez next time we visit the South of France. Have you been before? If so, I’d love to know what you thought or if you have any other favourite places close by?
