Superyachts Spotted in Saint Tropez This Summer

superyachts_st_tropez

The former fishing village of Saint Tropez is so popular with the rich and famous that heads barely turn when a celebrity is spotted wandering along its white sandy beaches.

This summer has seen the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Bono and Elton John and many more sauntering along the famous Saint Tropez beach at Pampelonne before stopping at the stars’ favourite lunch spot, Club 55, without so much as a second glance.

Well-known faces are two a penny in the south of France’s most glamorous resort, so to get really noticed these days stars have to arrive on a seriously mega yacht – which we’ve also seen in abundance this year.

The season kicked off this year with photos of a bare-chested Cristiano Ronaldo doing some kind of work-out on the foredeck of a ridiculously large superyacht in waters off Saint Tropez. Once he’d been put through his paces the Manchester midfielder was joined on board by Sir Philip Green and his family who are known to be fans of Saint Tropez – and superyachts.

Also making waves in Saint Tropez this summer was supermodel Elle Macpherson who was pictured jumping from the upper deck of the superyacht she and her family hired for one week this July. The yacht, named Mad Summer, is a 56 metre motor yacht which has previously won the Boat International World Superyacht Award in the Custom Motor Yacht 51 metres to 65 metres category.

The award-winning yacht comfortably sleeps up to 10 guests with a crew 14, and a week on board can cost up to 325,000 Euros.

Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi was also photographed on a yacht in Saint Tropez this summer but failed miserably to look anything as nimble as The Body, Elle Macpherson.

The 78-year-old man was snapped stumbling into a tender, where he gashed his head on the canopy. The unfortunate accident left him with an unsightly cut on his forehead which he soothed with ice as he made his way to his awaiting superyacht. The former Italian Prime Minister was on holiday in the south of France with his daughter Marina and her children.

Saint Tropez is synonymous with sophistication and style, so it makes perfect sense that the charming resort in the South of France is home to a number of leading fashion brands.
Within its beautiful paved streets are dozens of luxury boutiques selling designer labels and one off pieces, making the former French fishing town a must-visit destination for travelling fashionistas.

Two New Beach Clubs for Pampelonne

DSC_0367

Saint Tropez is famous for its highly exclusive and luxurious beach clubs, some of which have been around longer than many of its residents – and certainly us.

For example, the legendary Tahiti Beach Club opened on Pampelonne Beach in 1946, with celebrities favourite Club 55 being established a short distance away on the same stretch of sand some nine years later – in 1955.

And as much as we love the old institutions of Saint Tropez, it is always very exciting when new places open up.

Tips for surviving a long-haul flight

1

Are you planning an exotic vacation somewhere in Asia just after your luxury holiday in Saint Tropez but are not sure how to feel about the long-distance flight that comes with it? In most cases there are only two possible options: Either you love the plane journey because it takes you to distant places, or you hate it because of the long travel time. After all, one thing is clear, they are the first and a crucial step to reach distant countries and new adventures. Many are put off by the long flight hours of over 10 hours or more. If you regularly fly short-distances and, thus, think you are ready for a long-haul flight, you might realise that it is somehow different … Nevertheless, you really do not need to worry about them. However we still suggest to properly prepare beforehand, even if you are flying business-class!

2

In order to prevent boredom, sleep deprivation and backaches and enjoy a comfortable long-haul flight follow our 7 tips below:

1. Charging of your electronic devices

Assure that you have all electronic devices charged. Not all airlines offer the possibility of recharging mobile phones, iPods, Notebooks, tablets and other gadgets. For efficiency reasons we advise you to bring some work on your electronic devices, however emails and spreadsheets will fail you after a few hours. Hence, before the flight, still in your St Tropez villa, download the newest Hollywood blockbuster movies, series and music on your device in order to make time fly by. 32. Comfortable clothing

It is quite simple. For a comfortable flight you have to dress appropriately in order to make up for cramped seats, temperature changes and and the general lack of space.  Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes of breathable fabrics and combine it with simple shoes. Other essentials for any jet-setting flyer’s wardrobe include shawls, wraps, cardigans or sweatshirts to wear in layers to provide you with optimal comfort.

 

3. Sleeping aids

Take blindfolds, earplugs or noise-canceling headphones on the plane, depending on which one will help you fall asleep faster. On a long-haul flight we definitely recommend you to gear up and bring some small survival tools! You will thank us later …

4. Without electronics

If you are not into tablets, e-readers and similar devices, then take a good old book or some magazines with you. Reading an interesting novel or a romantic love story makes even long flights pass by quickly. 5

5. Eating

In almost all long-haul flights you will get something to eat, however often not at the time when you are starving. Bring a small snack to have in between meals and do not forget to drink a lot during the flight to prevent dehydration. Visualise how much you would drink on a 16 hours flight (or longer) beforehand.  6

6. Seat belts

Keep your seat belts fastened at all times and try to place it in a way that the cabin crew can see that you are buckled up. If not, the flight attendants have to wake you up if there are turbulences. 7

7. Be nice to each other

Finally, be nice to each other and avoid conflicts at all costs. You are all sitting in the same plane – and will do so for at least a few hours! 8

Have a safe trip 🙂

Top 10 Celebrities in Saint Tropez

Ever since a young, scantily-clad Brigitte Bardot discovered Saint Tropez in the 1950s, the exclusive resort in the South of France has been a magnet for the rich and famous.

Countless stars, from A-list Hollywood actors to leading politicians, have made Saint Tropez their summer retreat, largely due to the privacy they can find here under the Mediterranean sun.

Many of the luxury waterfront villas have large gardens, so prying lenses are not a problem. They also give easy access to the beautiful Mediterranean Sea, where many superstars have luxury yachts at their disposal.

St Tropez also boasts a number of exclusive night spots, such as the legendary VIP Rooms, where celebrities have been letting their hair down for decades.

Who can you expect to see in and around Saint Tropez? We look at the Top 10 Celebrities in Saint Tropez:
