Jutting out into the sea between the Golfe de St-Tropez and the Baie de Cavalaire, you'll find the Presqu'île de St-Tropez (St-Tropez peninsula). From swanky St-Tropez on the northern coast, fine-sand beaches of buttercream yellow and gold – easily the loveliest on the Côte d’Azur – ring the coast. The golden sands of France’s chicest beach, Plage de Pampelonne, line the peninsula’s eastern side, where you’ll also find St-Tropez’s storied beach-club scene.
South of St-Tropez unfurl manicured vineyards and quiet, narrow lanes dotted with châteaux, solitary stone bastides (country houses) and private villas. Inland, the flower-dressed hilltop villages of Gassin and Ramatuelle charm the socks off millions.
