Seeing as I’m sat here with an awful cold, feeling rather sorry for myself I thought I’d try to cheer myself up by looking back on our day in Saint Tropez a few weeks ago. It already feels like a lifetime ago! We visited while we were on holiday in the French Riviera and it was such a beautiful place, I thought I would share a little bit about what we got up to along with some photos.
We arrived in Saint Tropez around lunchtime and headed straight for lunch and drinks in a bar by the harbour. There are lots of bars and restaurants around that area, and they aren’t cheap but I think that’s to be expected somewhere like Saint Tropez. The prices certainly weren’t unreasonable.
It was a scorching hot day so we made sure to make regular stops and stick to the shade as much as we possibly could. And of course we made plenty of ice cream stops too…
We spent some time wandering through the streets of Saint Tropez and taking lots of photos of all the pretty spots. It’s such a photogenic place!
And it took all of my will power not to buy myself another straw bag. They are EVERYWHERE in France!
Next we decided to head up to the Citadelle de Saint-Tropez, an old fortress where we’d been told we would find the best views out over the town. It was only a short walk but uphill and in 30 degree heat, so it was quite a challenge. But it was worth it for these views…
The kids really enjoyed exploring the old fort. I believe it was €3 each for us to get in, which I think is very reasonable considering the kids were occupied and we got to take in the incredible views of the town and harbour below.
After that we slowly made our way back down through the streets and down towards the harbour so the kids could have a look at the super yachts.
Saint Tropez is a beautiful town and I’m so glad that we got the opportunity to visit. I always knew it wasn’t going to be the most child friendly of places, but we wanted to visit while we were so close anyway. But I was pleasantly surprised at how much the kids enjoyed it. The Citadelle in particular was great for them, and of course the ice cream! It’s a stunning place and one that I would recommend visiting, even with children.
Have you ever been to Saint Tropez?
