A 2 Hour drive* from Nice’s International Airport will take you to St Tropez .
Known to be the quintessential Jet-setter summer getaway for actors and celebrities, this beautiful village has more to offer than the glitz and glam.
Markets are the lifeblood of any small French town –
Every Tuesday and Saturday, “Place des Lyces” is home to the most diverse market in the region. Throughout the year this market has anything you might want from fresh organic produce, meats and fish to on-trend clothing, antiques and more. The many banks surrounding it make for easy access to cash. Come hungry as the many samples are worth a try!

Ok, not so secret but still. Skip the party beaches and go find some true Mediterranean gems.
The walk form l’Escalet to Gigaro offers a beautiful coastline and your pick of picturesque cliff-side rocky beaches or natural sandy shores.
