Saint Tropez, quiet fishing village in the heart of the
Gulf that bears his name in early 20th century, became apès World
War II, a world famous resort. The movie stars of the Nouvelle Vague and
the songs popularized Saint Tropez, now frequented by the jet set, the
"people" and tourists from around the world. The location is
ideal: the Gulf, bordered by sandy beaches, stretches between St.
Tropez and Sainte Maxime, to the lakeside city
of Port Grimaud. In the hinterland villages in the Maures
mountains are small gems whose name alone evokes the sun of Provence,
cicadas and holidays: Grimaud, Ramatuelle, La Croix-Valmer, La Garde Freinet, Plan
de la Tour.
