Local and international newspapers have already given plenty of column inches to celebrities visiting Saint Tropez this year, with particular coverage being given to the arrival of a bare chested Cristiano Ronaldo in town.
The Real Madrid star came to Saint Tropez at the beginning of the month where he was spotted relieving himself behind a parked car after coming out of Le Quai nightclub.
The Portuguese striker was also spotted hanging out on a luxury yacht belonging to Topshop boss Sir Philip Green during his South of France jaunt, which followed a sejour in Monaco for the famous grand prix.
The British businessman is also a huge fan of Saint Tropez and is frequently photographed at various hot spots such as Club 55, a prestigious hangout close to our selection of waterfront properties near Pampelonne Beach, with his equally famous friends.
