Three ways to make Saint-Tropez property work for you

Saint-Tropez has been in and out of jet set fashion for as long as Winkworth International have been selling French property. 

Those fabled beach clubs and A-list superyachts are certainly a long-lens favourite - but, if you’ve ever scratched the surface and discovered the natural beauty that first made the French Riviera famous, our Saint-Tropez property round-up is a must read.

A Provençal influence lends Saint-Tropez property an ageless beauty

Away from the summer spectacle, Saint-Tropez is essentially a fishing village dating back to the fifteenth century. Timeless bastions of French life such as the weekly market, the Sénéquier café and the legendary K. Jacques sandal shop offer understated gallic style. Further west than Cannes and Nice, Saint-Tropez also enjoys a Provençal influence.

If you plan to invest in a holiday home in Saint-Tropez, ask yourself, where do you want to be - close to the beach and the centre of the village, or enjoying the view from further away? Whatever your answer, our variety of Saint-Tropez property will have you spoilt for choice.

1. Close to the action
Near the beach at Pampelonne, you’ll find the typical Saint-Tropez villa with pool, separate guest house and plenty of space for entertaining. Surrounded by lush foliage for optimum privacy, these properties are just a moment away from the prestigious Club 55 beach club.

2. A degree of separation
A few steps inland, a whitewashed four bed house in the Sainte-Anne area feels substantial enough to live in all year round. An elevated position offers views of the sparkling sea and bustling village from a peaceful location.

3. The Côte d'Azur Countryside
A fifteen minute drive from Saint-Tropez takes you to the Gassin countryside. Together with other must-see villages, La Garde Freinet, Cogolin and the perched village of Grimaud, Gassin (pictured above) provides a happy balance between Saint-Tropez high society and a slower pace of French life.

Gassin is an ancient village of winding streets overlooking vineyards, woods and the azure sea. Against this backdrop, the Gary Player designed eighteen-hole Villa Gassin golf club offers elegant golfing villas, country club, tennis courts and pool. An incomparable setting to improve your handicap from your second home in the Côte d'Azur.

St. Tropez is just one of several show-stopping destinations to buy exceptional property for sale on the Côte d'Azur. To the east, Cannes and Nice offer equally glamorous resort-centre villas, while in the outlying Mougins countryside and the hills of Ville-Franche, you’ll find unique houses and authentic French gites.
