Once just a simple wooden cabin on the beach adopted as a canteen for all those on the set of the legendary film And God Created Woman, and the rest, they say, is history…Club 55 remains the most famous beach club on Pampelonne beach.
When was Club 55 launched?
Most of us are familiar with the birth of Saint Tropez onto the international scene after the small French fishing village was discovered by a young and extremely beautiful Brigitte Bardot in the 1950s.
Bardot was in the South of France filming And God Created Woman, directed by the actress’s then husband French filmmaker Roger Vadim in the summer of 1954.
The star was so mesmerized by this picturesque coastal town, home to our portfolio of St Tropez House villas, that she never left. Now in her late 70s, Bardot still lives in a secluded waterfront property and there are references to the former blonde bombshell everywhere you turn in this now famous resort.
Perhaps her greatest legacy however is Club 55, a delightful beach club a stone’s throw from some of our most exclusive villas for rent in Pampelonne which the starlet used to go to every lunch time during her filming all those years ago.
What celebrities can be spotted at Club 55?
Now, Club 55 boasts some of the most-sought after tables in Saint Tropez which famous politicians, Hollywood greats and up and coming pop stars all clamber to reserve in the height of the summer. It is notoriously difficult to get a table in July and August therefore clients renting a villa in St Tropez are highly recommended to book well in advance so as not to be disappointed. Once you are sitting at that beautifully set table on the soft white sand, you will no doubt be glad you thought ahead. The food is simple and delicious, the views second to none and the ambiance certain to ensure you have a day to remember.

Where is Club 55 and how to book a table and a beach bed?
