The food scene in St Tropez blends the essence of French cuisine with rich Mediterranean flavors. The area offers so many options, from quaint cafes to Michelin star restaurants – and we wanted to experience as many as we could. One of our favorite parts of traveling to new places is indulging in novel foods and local specialties. A distinctive feature about dining in St Tropez is that most restaurants simply offer two seating times, at 8 pm and 10 pm. Depending on the restaurant, the latter seating often comes with a burlesque-inspired show, featuring dance and other forms of entertainment. It’s also common to find establishments that host live music or feature DJs, creating wonderful ambiance to enjoy the evenings in style.
St Tropez has been on my dream travel list for years and I couldn’t wait to see it all. This charming coastal town is located in the southeastern part of France, in the French Riviera region. It is famous for its stunning beaches, luxurious lifestyle, and vibrant nightlife, making it a popular destination for both tourists and celebrities. St Tropez was even MORE than I expected it to be. We fell in love…and discovered that St Tropez was the perfect place to return to over and over again.
Arriving into France on Bastille Day or “le Quatorze Juillet” – was perfect timing for us to celebrate with the locals in Cannes. Each year on July 1, the glamorous city on the French Rivera transforms into a vibrant hub of celebration as it commemorates “le fête nationale” (National Day). This day, one of the most important national holidays in France, marks the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789, which led to the French Revolution and the establishment of the modern French nation.
