Last week the golden haired beauty who put Saint Tropez firmly on the world map celebrated her 80th birthday surrounded by family and friends in her luxury waterfront property on the outskirts of the town.
The outspoken actress, who is now almost as famous for her work as an animal rights activist as she was as a silver screen goddess more than half a century ago, has never strayed far from Saint Tropez after discovering it as a young starlet in the 1950s.
Bardot was filming And Got Created Woman in and around Saint Tropez in 1954, and fell instantly in love with the area as many other celebrities have done so since.
This beautiful region of the South of France is like a magnet to the rich and famous, with many of the great and good of Hollywood, world politics and the sporting stage choosing to holiday in luxury villas in Saint Tropez every summer.
This year was no different. A quick scour of the newspapers and celebrity websites reveal that Saint Tropez and the surrounding countryside was the holiday destination of choice for many celebrities during the summer months.
June saw actress Nina Dobrev hanging out with her mum in the cobbled streets of Saint Tropez, just moments away from our central St Tropez House villas, while tennis player Martina Navratilova also took advantage of an early summer holiday in the region with her partner Julia Lemigova.
Meanwhile, in July, the beaches of Pampelonne were packed with famous faces, from Leonardo DiCaprio, Jared Leto and Lily Allen to Gwen Stefani and Selena Gomez, who was seen partying on a yacht off Saint Tropez with British model Cara Delevingne.
Our celebrity spotting did not stop there. Also seen enjoying the sea, sand and sunshine in Saint Tropez this summer were the likes of U2’s Bono, Chris Brown, and his former girlfriend Rhianna, who was pictured on the deck of a luxury yacht off Pampelonne beach.
