Hi everyone and welcome to Saint-Tropez! Discover all the hotspots this beautiful city has to offer. From luxurious shopping streets to classy restaurants and trendy bars: Saint-Tropez has it all.
This year my first shopping stop was at Marinette. This is a interior store, with beautiful ocean and summer themed things. And it’s really not expensive! Normally I’m not that interested in interior pieces, but since I’m moving, this was the perfect opportunity to buy some essentials.
Place des Lices is a delightful place in the centre of the city. This is definitely the place to go on Tuesdays and Saturdays. On those days the ‘jeu de boules’ players make room for an open-air market, which is really fun to wander through.
On one of the streets surrounding Place des Lices you can also find one of my favorite stores: BCBG MaxAzria. I always tend to find something here when I’m in Saint-Tropez. And this time was no exception: what do you think of my new bracelet?
The Dior House is in my opinion one of the most stunning stores in Saint-Tropez. The house itself is just so beautiful and they even have a restaurant in the romantic garden, called Dior des Lices. I’ve never eaten there, but I’ve heard the food is pretty amazing. The multi-starred chef revealed that he gets his food inspiration from the world of Haute Couture: so can’t wait to taste it one day! 😉
Across the street from the Dior des Lices, you can see a small jewelry store called GAS Bijoux. Here you can find the most amazing jewelry and even some beach dresses. I instantly noticed the popularity of the store when I tried to make a picture with no one in front of the store window: women really are magnetized by this shop!
As I already shared in a previous article: I finally found the perfect K. Jacques sandals, and I found mine here in Saint-Tropez. Don’t be fooled by the size of the store: it looks kinda small and you may not notice the shop right away; but on the inside it’s definitely sandal-paradise.
At the crossroads of the harbor and the old town, you can find Le Grand. This is a restaurant which turns into a bar/club late at night. It’s the ideal place for those tropezian nights, filled with delicious dinners en great DJ’s.
Le Quai is a restaurant/cocktail bar which sits directly on the port of Saint-Tropez. You have an excellent view of the boats and it’s a great place to spot everyone (and be spotted). The saxophone player is phenomenal and succeeds in creating the right atmosphere. I would definitely recommend the sushi, it’s one of the best I’ve ever eaten.
L’Opéra is a fashionable resto-lounge, which turns into a bar at night. It’s rather new, so we decided to try it out and have a quick lunch. I was immediately mesmerized by the interior. How cool is the long table with the stairs on each end?! The candles on the stairs must create an amazing effect when it’s dark. I chose a Caeser Salad which was simple but tasty.
When you’re in for a big party, and you would prefer a club rather than a bar, you need to go to Les Caves du Roy. Located in one of the most beautiful hotels of Saint-Tropez, the Hotel Byblos, this ‘crown jewel of party’ won’t let you down. And don’t be surprised if you bump into some celebs on the dance floor 😉
