St Tropez Yacht Charter, French Riviera
You can find a list of St Tropez charter yachts hereWhat's so special about St Tropez and the yacht charter scene? St Tropez is a small fishing village tucked into the coastline between the sky and the sea of the famous Cote d'Azur. In 1956, St Tropez was used as the setting for the sexy film "And God Created Woman", starring Brigitte Bardot. The jetsetters soon came flocking to this sleepy corner of France in search of the same sensual lifestyle. Today, although St Tropez is a Mecca for the riotously rich and famous, it deserves a place on any Mediterranean yacht charter itinerary. Whether you sail in upon a 60m luxury superyacht, a 40 foot bareboat or a 10 foot tender, the appeal remains the same.
Despite the growing popularity of St Tropez as a yacht charter destination, the village manages to maintain its gorgeous charm. There are timeless back streets to explore, filled with boutique shops, delis and patisseries. The aromas of freshly baked croissants and brewed coffee waft down the cobbled streets to greet you. Enjoy a sunset drink in one of the many cafes lining the dock. Watch the sleek superyachts, maneuver into their tight berths, fender to fender. At dusk, it's quite spectacular to watch the evening lights reflect from the pastel pinks, oranges and yellows of the harbor side houses.
By day, enjoy the stunning beaches of the St Tropez peninsula. On the eastern side, lie three miles of curving white sand in the famous Pampelonne Bay. At Tahiti Beach, you'll find the hangout of the rich, the famous and the generally scantily clad: The Voiles Rouge beach club.
The Voiles de St. Tropez Sailing yacht Regatta takes place during the first week of October each year and there are yachts available for charter so that you can experience the event, or even race in it.
