saint-tropez le mythe


What a endless topic … Until the 50’s, the name of Saint Tropez was synonymous a peaceful village where painters such as Signac, settled in a small fishermen harbour at only 8 days driving from Paris.

It was the place where Dunoyer de Segonzac and Colette have lived and died in 1954. The same year, without knowing,  a young writer of 18 years old, Françoise Sagan, gained success with her first book “Bonjour Tristesse” and where a young film maker, Roger Vadim, came to shoot his film, in the area of La Ponche, film which would become a scandal “ Et Dieu créa la femme…”

Between 1954 and 1960, these young and brilliant artists of Saint Germain des Prés, launched this place-to-be for happy fews into a must destination for tourists.

Here on Saint Tropez peninsula, we are far from the busy cities of the Cote d’Azur and its exploding urbanisation. Tropezian people are looking for beautiful provencal countryside, the peace and festive atmosphere unique in Saint Tropez only when they feel like it. The villas  are built on a traditional provencal architecture, but also with more contemporary style where more and more buyers tend to choose.
