Toulon and the coastline of the Var to St Tropez mesmerising quaint beauty - in search of the serene side to the village of sea, sun & millionaire boats (scroll down for more details)
Toulon just the start of our adventure along the coast to St Tropez. The Var's shoreline is magnetic. Strings of stunning islands, secluded monasteries, a landscape dotted with villages, makes the region one of the most varied & enticing in Provence. On route to St Trop' stopping at beaches of Ramatuelle made famous by celebrities who come each summer. Pampelonne beach - a great place to sit on your towel, watch the chic crowd swagger through. It’s full of discrete beach clubs & restaurants. Out of season, wild & deserted - at the height of summer, something else. Next visit the village of St Tropez, its iconic harbour port & visit the historic fishing quarter - La Ponche near the old Port. Then the Citadelle, built in 1602 to defend the coast that dominates & overlooks St Tropez. The views here are fantastic. Final stop Sénéquier, where Sartre wrote parts of Les Chemins de la Liberté at this portside cafe – popular with boaties & tourists alike. From St Trop' inland to the villages of the Var.
