The fisherman’s harbour of Saint Tropez is definitely one of the best known places of the entire Côte d'Azur. The town, famous for Brigitte Bardot, is nowadays one of the most popular spots for the jet set and the nightlife, but despite that, it remains a Provençal.
The Commune of Saint-Tropez, 38km from the campsite, is indeed one of the best destinations in the PACA region, it represents an opportunity for the whole family to enjoy the beautiful fine sandy beaches, taste the various local specialities, discover an exceptional and authentic city and unwind to the rhythm of the music during the evenings. Located in the Var Department, it stands out from the other municipalities in the region by its famous fishing port.
Although this former fishing village is particularly quiet in autumn and spring, it is one of the most lively cities during the summer holidays. Several activities take place there and the port then becomes a festive place where luxury yachts and sailboats belonging to various celebrities moor there, giving an even more spectacular side to the setting.
Thanks to its kilometres of coastline, composed of magnificent beaches and fresh, clear waters, water sports are particularly interesting.
