I love France. The French are crazy, wild and free-spirited. And I especially love Saint-Tropez because it’s a gorgeous beach town in the French Riviera, and they love to party there! Pretty much anything goes in St. Tropez, as you will see from our crazy 4th of July photos at Nikki Beach. This was my fourth trip to St. Tropez, and I had way too much fun as usual and already can’t wait to go back! But what made this whole trip were our accommodations. My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel B. Lodge, a cute boutique hotel offering rooms at a great price (for crazy expensive St. Tropez standards). It was his first experience there and he fell in love with the killer location, just as I did on my first stay.
I am all about ease of logistics when on vacation. The less driving and organizing the better and while many boutique hotels are outside of the city, Hotel B. Lodge is located in St Tropez, right next to BYBLOS Hotel (a very pricey but good option if you want all the amenities of a resort). The beaches and beach clubs are south of the city so you have to take a taxi each day to those. But each night we were able to return to our hotel shower, nap and then walk to all the best restaurants and clubs in the city. Less driving and planning = more time lounging under a white umbrella, on a white sand beach drinking Domaines Ott Tosé. Welcome to St. Tropez…
STAY | HOTEL B. LODGE: Clean, chic but small rooms. Book a Superior Room with Balcony. Otherwise, it’s very cramped. Great cocktails and coffee at CAFÉ BAROCK located inside.
WHERE TO EAT & DRINK, RELAX & PARTY
LUNCH + PARTY | NIKKI BEACH: Very expensive (but that’s St Tropez), great food (get the sushi boat) and get ready to have fun! This was my third 4th of July here and this place goes off! My only complaint is it’s not right on the beach but they do have a pool and like a little kid I get kicked out every year for doing cannon balls into it! LOL
LUNCH + RELAX | LES PALMIERS: My favorite beach club in St Tropez. I love the “all white everything” look and that the beach is just steps away. So when you’re done with lunch, you can grab a lounge chair on the sand and chill out.
CLUB 55: Nestled in trees with amazing food, and good music. It’s totally different from any other beach club I’ve been to. After lunch, head out to sun bathe with all the beautiful people.
DINNER | VILLA ROMANA: A St Tropez Must! LE GRAND: Love the sexy vibe. LE BISTROT À LA TRUFFLE: All truffles. All amazing! Get the potato with truffle, and egg with truffle. Sounds weird but both dishes are insanely yummy.
