Saint-Tropez was an excursion that I took during my studies in Aix.
I had heard so much about Saint-Tropez that when the possibilité of a trip to the ville halted in front of me, I jumped on the occasion to go!
Although I was highly déçue with how little this ville had to offer (it was small, there wasn’t a lot of activités, and the plage (beach) wasn’t crowded at all – I know this should be a plus, but I heard that hoards of vacationers flock to this place…I guess it was off saison?), I was pleased to spend some time basking beneath the soleil.
5 Raisons to Challenge my Déception of Saint-Tropez:
- The Citadel de Saint-Tropez. It’s quite the hike to the Citadel, but the vue is worth it!
- The marché. While my friends and I were taking in the sights and sounds of this petite ville, we came across an Art Deco marché. Certainement, each ville has its fruits/vegetable marché – but, it’s not every day you see an Art Deco marché!
- Le Port. The port in Saint-Tropez is full of riche-looking yachts, sailboats, and small fishing boats.
- Église de Notre-Dame de l’Assomption. You can see its gorgeously warm-colored tour almost anywhere in Saint-Tropez (even at the top of the Citadel).
- La Maison des Papillons. Most villes, including Saint-Tropez, have a Musée d’Art/Histoire; however, Saint-Tropez also has a Butterfly Musée!
Saint-Tropez was nothing like I imaginé: It didn’t take long to walk the entire ville – thus, there wasn’t a whole lot to do, either.
But, it’s quite pretty to admire.
Between the volets violets,
and its proximité the côte,
I managed to find some magique to the ville. ♦
