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.

But who else can you expect to rub shoulders with this summer in Saint Tropez while you holiday in one of the most famous resorts in the world? Here are some celebrities to look out for:

  • Kate Moss

British model Kate Moss is a regular visitor to Saint Tropez with her husband, The Kills musician Jamie Hince, and daughter Lila Grace.

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 🙂

24 Hours in Saint Tropez

Luxury cars in St Tropez

If you had only 24 hours in Saint Tropez this summer, what would you do? It would seem an enormous shame to leave your luxury villa in the South of France after just arriving, but if that’s all the time you had, where would you head for the best food, wine and fun?

Here are our suggestions for a night and day to remember in this unforgettable town:

6pm

This is a good as time as any to arrive in Saint Tropez. For your first drink of the evening – that all important apéro – we suggest you head to White Bar, White 1921, Place des Lices for a coupe to celebrate the fact that you’ve arrived.

8pm

For a blast of something different before heading for supper, why not grab yourself a Red One (Scotch, amaretto, lemon, strawberry and fig syrup) at the Pan dei Palais Hotel, where you can lounge on four-poster beds around the pool.

10pm

It’s fashionable to eat late in the South of France, so relax and enjoy the last sips of your cocktail before sauntering off to the Hotel Sezz, on the Route des Salins, for a Mediterranean meal in the restaurant, called Colette after the French novelist Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette. Here you can tuck into roasted scallops under the stars whilst listening to the tunes of the resident DJ. Who could ask for more?

Midnight

No night in Saint Tropez would be complete without a trip to Les Caves Du Roy, the legendary nightspot in the equally famous Byblos Hotel. Bring a full wallet, and your dancing shoes and you will be sure to have a brilliant night.

3am

Not ready to retreat back to your luxury St Tropez villa but in need of a change of scene, then we suggest you pop along to the VIP Room for a night cap listening to some live music. This popular venue is open until 6am in the summer season so no need to rush anywhere.

7am

Those with stamina can pop into the Senequier on the Port for a coffee and a pause whilst watching the rest of Saint Tropez slowly come to life, before heading back to their rented villa for a quick 40 winks.

11 am

Revived by a quick cat nap, it’s back into the heart of Saint Tropez for a refreshing citron pressé in Le Sporting, a laid back bar on the very animated Place des Lices where the brave hearted can do some shopping in the weekly market.

Midday

There’s only one place for lunch if you only have 24 hours in Saint Tropez, and that is on the beach with the sand in your toes and the breeze of the Mediterranean on your face. There is a plethora of excellent beach clubs to choose from, but if you want to go all out, then we suggest Club 55 for its pure and unadulterated sophistication and charm.

www.club55.fr

4pm

To ensure you leave Saint Tropez on a high, drop into Nikki Beach near our most sought after waterfront properties to rent for a final cocktail and dance. This beach club has become a hot spot for international jet setters and celebrities who come to Saint Tropez each summer, and couldn’t come more highly recommended.

The first signs of spring have begun to appear in the French Riviera, with temperatures once again reaching the late-teens. This means the events season can really begin in earnest and Monaco, as ever, will be among the most important destinations for many of the most exclusive events. One such event is Top Marques, which has become the fourth biggest event in Monaco’s calendar behind the Grand Prix, the Monaco Yacht Show and the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters.

This year, the show will run from the 16th to 19th April and those attending will be treated to an extensive portfolio of the world’s most exclusive supercars. Guests will also be treated to the AeroMobile, a prototype of a roadster which transforms into a flying a two-seater light sport plane. Monaco is around a two-hour drive from our luxury St Tropez villas and whilst it will add a little more time to your journey, we recommend exiting near Villefranche sur Mer to enjoy stunning sea views on the twisting coastal road.
