When you live full time in one of the most beautiful corners of the world like Saint Tropez, it is often difficult to be objective about its qualities.
For example, those of us who work at St Tropez House, leading providers of luxury villas for rent and for sale in the Saint Tropez area, think that there’s nowhere else like it on the planet.
We’ve got the best bars, the best restaurants and without doubt the best beaches of anywhere in the South of France at our fingertips and within a short meander from all of our luxury rentals in Saint Tropez.
But if you think we are too subjective, why not look at the following article published recently in the Daily Telegraph, which lists the string of beautiful beaches near to our exclusive portfolio of exceptional properties.
- Top spot on the Telegraph’s list of best beaches in Saint Tropez is the world famous Pampelonne Beach, situated a ten minute drive from the centre of Saint Tropez but much closer to some of our waterfront properties for rent. Here you will find a long stretch of white sand punctuated with some of the coolest, most happening beach bars in the world such as Club 55, Nikki Beach and Tahiti Beach.
- Plage La Glaya comes in a number two. This small intimate cove is near the oldest part of Saint Tropez village and a great place to come for a quick dip if you are renting one of our more central luxury villas in Saint Tropez.
- Plage La Ponche is another central beach close to the centre of Saint Tropez.
- Plage de la Fontanette is the third charming small beach close to the port of Saint Tropez and ideal for a refreshing swim before heading in to town for a look at the boutiques.
- Plage de la Bouillabaisse is situated on the road out of Saint Tropez, beyond the port and car park. The views from here across the bay to the Maurés mountains are particularly beautiful.
- Plage des Graniers is located a short walk from Saint Tropez along the Sentier du Littoral. The beach is surrounded by beautiful sweet-smelling pines and has a rustic charm. It is also entirely public, with an excellent restaurant.
- Plage des Salins is a short drive from the centre of Saint Tropez but nearer to the heart of the village than Pampelonne. The beach here is wilder and more remote than its more famous neighbor, but just as beautiful.
- Plage de l’Escalet is a delightful beach about six miles from Saint Tropez, hidden down a bumpy unpaved road with little in the way of signposting. But when you get there, it is worth the journey, with stunning views, intimate caves and azure blue sea.
