St Tropez, France

The rocky peninsula of St. Tropez is glorious. Its waterside dwellings of dusky oranges and yellows, and its yachts bobbing in the marina, are definitive of the Côte d’Azur’s unmistakable A-list chic.

St. Tropez’ artistic roots are impressive and you’ll find original works by Matisse in the museum of art. Meanwhile, the narrow cobbled lanes of the old town are an idyllic setting for a gentle walk.
