When film director Roger Vadim and his then wife Brigitte Bardot set about filming And God Created Woman in 1955, little did they know that the quaint seaside town they were shooting in was to become as legendary as the actress herself.

Following the film’s release a year later, the beautiful Provencal town was henceforth destined to become a hotbed of celebrity VIP chic. These days the glamorous port town is less known for its films and more widely renowned for the sound of Cristal bottles opening, the roar of superyacht engines and supercars and the incessant flickering of paparazzi camera shutters.

Year after year, this image of class and elegance has slowly been scorched indelibly onto the sandy beaches of the French Riviera town. It is this which attracts the rich and famous to these Mediterranean shores today. Only last week in fact Brigitte Bardot celebrated her 80th birthday at her luxury waterfront property, proving St Tropez still retains the charm that once seduced her nearly sixty years ago.

Likewise, many other celebrities have this year also been lured to the luxury resorts of the southern French town. In our blog Celebrities Are in Love with St Tropez, we brought news on all the stars to have visited this summer: from tennis ace Martina Navratilova in the early season to Leonardo Di Caprio and Jared Leto in the later season. Last of all to soak up some final summer sun was celebrity singer Rihanna.

After having enjoyed a luxury cruise around Sardinia and Corsica, the pop singer’s yacht finally laid anchor in St Tropez last month. Following a long summer of work caught between her stadium tour of America with Eminem and the recording of her new album, Rihanna allowed herself to kick back and enjoy some hard earned holiday. Rather unsurprisingly she once again chose the Mediterranean as her destination of choice.

Making the tabloids however was her ex Chris Brown who was also spotted in St Tropez at the same time. Two years earlier they had been captured enjoying some more tender moments together in the same resort but this summer, Rihanna seemed keen to keep her distance. Instead she appeared content to soak up some sun aboard her yacht alongside her best friend Melissa Forde.

That concludes another sun drenched summer at the Mediterranean celebrity paradise of St Tropez. With endless beautiful sandy beaches, a multitude of luxury villas and the usual choice of decadent bars and fancy restaurants, next year is certain to bring some more familiar faces back to the Cote d’Azur.

Celebrities Are in Love With St Tropez

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.
