We can’t believe how quickly Christmas has come around again this year, but we are mighty glad it is here as Noel is by far one of our most favourite seasons in Saint Tropez.
The town centre where many of our more central luxury rental properties are located is as pretty as a picture, with wonderful lights, numerous decorated Christmas trees, and the Marché de Noel which, if you haven’t yet visited, is a must over the next few days.
Schools and colleges break up on Friday in Saint Tropez and across France, so expect crowds in the town and traffic jams on the roads as everyone makes a dash to family and friends for this special time of year.
This weekend the festivities in Saint Tropez will reach fever pitch with The Salon of Chocolate, a three day event based around one of our favourite treats which will take place in the Salle des Jean Despas from 10am to 8pm.
The gathering of gourmands is the 5th to take place in Saint Tropez and it has always proved very popular with our clients staying in our luxury rental villas at Christmas time.
Festivities continue across the weekend and into next week, when le Pere Noel will be preparing to make his grand arrival in a speed boat at the Vieux Port on Christmas Eve to wish the people of Saint Tropez a very Merry Christmas – or Joyeux Noel.
So, we will leave you now to enjoy all that Saint Tropez has to offer during this festive time, and wish each and every one of you a Very Happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year!
