Top 10 Celebrities on Holiday 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 some kind of magnet to 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 Tropezienne 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 this year? We look at the Top 10 Celebrities in Saint Tropez:

  1. Kate Moss

British model Kate Moss is a regular visitor to Saint Tropez. A summer barely passes without Kate and her husband Jamie Hince dropping in to the resort where they can often be seen wining and dining at the famous Club 55 on Pampelonne beach. Often joined by other celebrities such as Lily Allen and Sir Philip Green, the star looks right at home in Saint Tropez.



  1. Beyonce & Jay Z

American singer Beyonce and her boyfriend Jay-Z are firm fans of Saint Tropez, with Jay-Z even rapping about the resort in one of his hits. It is quite common to see the power couple strolling about Saint Tropez, although a few years ago they also hired a magnificent luxury yacht for $377,000 a week on which to hang out with friends.



  1. Lady Gaga

Not wanting to get left out popstar Lady Gaga was also spotted recently sampling the good life on a luxury yacht in the waters off Saint Tropez. No price tag on the said yacht but nothing here comes cheap!



  1. Rihanna

Rihanna is another American superstar who chooses to holiday in Europe’s equivalent of Miami. A few years ago the top selling artist was seen partying on board the $300 million yacht of friend Yuri Shefler with her then on-off boyfriend Chris Brown. Chris was said to be in the resort to do some filming.



  1. Leonardo DiCaprio

Many A-listers pop along to Saint Tropez after the Cannes Film festival which takes place for a fortnight in May each year. Perhaps this was where Leonardo DiCaprio had been hanging out prior to a recent visit to Saint Tropez where he was seen arriving by helicopter before jumping on to a luxury yacht.



  1. Geri Halliwell

It’s not just American A-listers who delight in Saint Tropez. Geri Halliwell from Spice Girl fame is often seen holidaying in the upmarket resort with her daughter Bluebell Madonna and significant other.

  1. Vanessa Paradis

French singer and movie star Vanessa Paradis loves Saint Tropez so much she even bought a villa nearby, in the village of Plan de la Tour, where she spends time with her children from her relationship with Johnny Depp.



  1. Angelina Jolie-Brad Pitt

Another power couple to visit the region regularly is Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, who are also owners of a home not a million miles from Saint Tropez in the Var. The Hollywood couple regularly visits the South of France and even decided to give birth to twins Knox and Vivienne in nearby Nice. They are also rumored to be looking to invest in a $5 million yacht on which to take their brood of six gorgeous kids.



  1. Victoria & David Beckham

Although they have managed to escape the paparazzi lenses in recent years Victoria and David Beckham are also known to be fans of Saint Tropez. Here they are pictured in 2005 without their four children Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper. They also own property in the South of France, and are regular visitors to the region.

  1. Neil Patrick Harris

With a house figuratively speaking just down the road in Nice, it’s an easy trip to Saint Tropez for Sir Elton John and his family, who were last year spotted hanging out with Neil Patrick Harris, his partner David Burtka and their beautiful brood.



Here you have our Top 10 Celebrities who holiday in Saint Tropez, and this summer we will be keeping an eye out for even more superstars who own or rent villas in this beautiful corner of the world.

St Tropez enjoys a reputation of being something of a party town, with the likes of Sir Elton John, Kate Moss and Zac Efron having been spotted in bars and restaurants in and around the former fishing village in just the last few weeks.
The picturesque town on the Golf of St Tropez and the magnificent stretch of golden beaches close by are packed with a huge range of beach bars and nightlife, but if you want to bump into Kate and her entourage, for example, then you need to know where to go.
