The charm and delights of Saint-Tropez
During your stay at our charming hotel, don’t miss one of the events most loved by Saint-Tropez’s residents - the Marché des Lices. At this market held on Tuesdays and Saturday mornings, traders set up their stalls under the shady plane trees. Amid the wondrous colour, discover the wondrous local produce of Provence, including fruit, vegetables, fish, sea food, olive, goat’s cheese, honey and wine, as well as flowers, artisan products, Provençal fabric and the odd antique and bric-a-brac. The happiness doesn’t stop at the market. Take a seat at the terrace of one of the cafés or near the fountain, or visit the fish market, open every day, where you can buy such delicacies as sea bream, mullet, octopus or spider crab.
To discover all the flavour of Mediterranean cuisine, you should also visit one of the many restaurants in town. Whether at the Vieux Port or along the small streets, on the terrace or in the plush dining room, at top-rated restaurants or small bistros, you’re sure to find the right place for you. Try some of the local delicacies for main course, including tapenade, aïoli, pistou soup, bouillabaisse, mussels à la provençale, ratatouille, pissaladière and Provençal stew. Then, for dessert, don’t hesitate to order the famous “tarte tropézienne”, Saint-Tropez’s famous pudding mixing decadent brioche, smooth cream and crunchy sugar crystals. Invented in the 1950s, this famous tart shot to fame thanks to another star of Saint-Tropez star, Brigitte Bardot, who adored this sweet treat.
