Les Voiles de St Tropez

St Tropez

For many, September is arguably the best month to enjoy the South of France and we believe an ideal time to rent one of our stunning luxury St Tropez House villas.

The lines of cars crawling slowly into Saint Tropez are a distant memory; the long golden beaches have emptied, yet the weather still hovers around 25C with more than eight hours of sunshine a day.

It’s the perfect time to sit back and enjoy a well-earned rest in one of our luxury villas in Saint Tropez.

September is also the month when many of the world’s most beautiful yachts make their way into the Golf of St Tropez for one of most spectacular sailing events on the globe, Les Voiles de St Tropez.

The popular event which is one of the sailing fraternity’s most eagerly awaited regattas will this year take place between September 29th and October 6th in the azure blue waters of the Bay of St Tropez.

Organised by the Société Nautique de Saint-Tropez, the regatta attracts top racers and sailing enthusiast from all corners of the globe who amass in the former fishing village to take part in the week-long competition.

Throughout the week the yachts can be seen gliding along the shimmering water from the terrace of many of our premier waterfront villas in Saint Tropez, and the event is one of the highlights of the holiday for many of those who choose to rent a luxury villa at this special time of the year.

Categories in Les Voiles de St Tropez include events for both modern and classic sailing yachts, with classes such as ‘esprit de tradition’, Wally and 12 meter America’s Cup yachts being held throughout the week. However, the piece de resistance is La Grande Classe Trophy, an invitation-only event launched in 2004 which sees some of the most beautiful classic yachts battling it out to win the Rolex Trophy.
