Voyage to The Glamorous Heart of the French Riviera

Saint-Tropez invokes images of overly tanned bodies in tiny bathing suits, luxury yachts, white sandy beaches, and the over-the-top glitz and glamour of the Côte d’Azur. And while this isn’t too far from reality, we say, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.

Stroll along the harbor and marvel at the yachts, many of which dwarf the surrounding buildings (and then smile happily to yourself, knowing the Azamara ship you arrived on is “la pièce de résistance”). Join other jet setters on one of the fabulous beaches, some of which—like Tahiti Beach, made famous by Bridget Bardot—are clothing optional. Ooh, la la!

Take your time window-shopping along rue Gambetta and the surrounding side streets. If Chanel and Dior are not quite what you had in mind, head to a local boutique to pick up herbes de Provence and lavender, plus kitchen items like olive-wood serving bowls and hand-stitched Provencal tablecloths.

For lunch, if you don’t feel like footing the bill at the infamous beachside Club 55, the old fishing quarter La Ponche has plenty of seafood restaurants serving the day’s freshest catches and refreshing rosés, a regional specialty. Just be sure to get a spot with good views for people watching; it’s practically a sport for Tropéziens.

Leaving St. Tropez, visit the charming Port-Grimaud, also known as the "Little Venice" of France. This unique town looks like a Mediterranean fishing village but is in fact a modern complex of luxury housing with a fully equipped marina and colorful houses linked by a network of canals, neat little bridges, and narrow alleys.
