Crash Course: Guide to St. Tropez

July 20, 2018

As promised here is our St Tropez guide. We have been spending summers in France (St. Tropez) since I was very little.    My earliest memories are of the crowded, hot market, weaving my way through the crowds hand in hand with my older cousin.    We still love to visit the market and I find that in May/June when we visit, it’s far less crowded than it is in mid-August.   Still, I recommend going early if you can, everything is just a bit easier that way.  It is on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 7:30-1:30 and is full of lots of delicious food, spices, linens, lavender, soaps, jewelry, clothes, homewares and linens — jackpot!    Here is a little glimpse into what it looks like:

Market days also make the village very busy, so if I am going to run errands or spend a day in St. Tropez, I tend to avoid those days if I can.    A lot of shops close after lunch, say from 1-4, but they stay open very late which can make for a fun early evening activity.    My favorite clothing shops are:   Des Petite Hauts, LULU, Baar & Bass, Gas Bijoux, By Marie, Zimmermann, BLABLA & Sunday.    There’s also a little shop which says Dupuis 1903 which has great presents (both men & women) and staples for the wardrobe and home.

Besides that, we spend a lot of time wandering through the flowery cobblestone streets, eating tomato sandwiches from street vendors, and ice cream from Barbarac in the port — a must, and it melts quickly!!!  Honestly we eat at the house most of the time so don’t do long dinners in town, but when I was younger we used to go to the Les Caves nightclub — not sure if it’s cool or not anymore but I love a good night of dancing so might be fun regardless!
