St Tropez Area

I have been fortunate enough to travel back to France September 2023, this is a compilation of recommendations from my June and September trips


As with all restaurants make a reservation (for lunch too). Generally you can call day of and it is ok.

Lunch at the Beach - Gigaro

La Brigantine

You can't beat this setting, located on a lovely deck at Gigaro beach. The beautiful hotel Lilly of the Valley has 2 restaurants on the beach Brigantine and Pepe's. Brigantine is a bit more formal. They have valet parking, as with every place make a reservation. Be sure to order the aperol spritz, the pizza is great with a side of vegtables.

Lunch at the Beach -St Tropez

Les Graniers

This is one of my favorites for lunch, I return here every trip. I love the rustic vibe of this place, it is tucked away in a bay facing St Tropez. The setting is super casual, tables are on the sand. The food is great. Finish your lunch witth a dip in the sea.

Lunch at Pampellon Beach

Le Club 55

We had an amazing time celebrating Kate’s 40th at Club 55! The laid back and classy atmosphere really made the experience enjoyable. The live music was fantastic, and it was great that the musicians came around to each table to take requests.

As per usual, don't even think about showing up without a reservation. We shared the muscles and frites and they were great!

Hang at Pool

Château de la Messardière

This is a bit tricky, as you need to be staying at the hotel to come here. The setting is so pretty, I love the drive up to the hotel, it is situated on top of St Tropez and looks over Pampelone and the bay of St Tropez. They have a beautiful spa and boutique. Kate was having a treatment and so I hung out. Be sure to check the prices, as some treatments are way more reasonable then others.

Favorite Winery

Domain de La Croix

This is my all time favorite winery in the region. The grapes are located between Domaine de la Reve and the sea. The winery is beautiful and it fun to go and taste their wines. They have 2 roses to choose from.

Saturday & Tuesday Market

St Tropez Market

Held on Tuesday and Saturday. For the Saturday market you need to be there by 9:00 or you will not find parking. There are so many treasures here. One of my favorite things about staying in a home is that you can take advantage of all of the amazing food at the markets. There is a market everyday in a different town. The other one I really like is Ramatuelle. It is on Thursdays and Sundays. None of them are as big as the Saint Tropez market.

Private Beach Club at Pampellon Beach

EPI Baie de Pampelonne

If someone invites you, this is an incredible invitation! I would absolutely say YES! Epi is a private beach club located on the popular Pampellon Beach. Every detail is taken care of from the moment you drive up. We went straight to the beach where umbrellas were set up with adorable pink yeti coolers, and a Stand Up Paddle Board. They have beautiful clay tennis courts, Yoga/ Pilates, two pools and a lovely restaurant. After our morning at the beach we enjoyed a delicious lunch.

Bike Ride

If you are there for a while consider renting bikes. I rode a e-mountain bike to a beach that you can only get to by foot or bike. From the house we rode to Plage Des Brouis. You can only get here by hiking, biking or boat. It is a Naturist beach (nude beach). After the beach we rode up to Ramatuelle and had Aperol Spritz's.
