Three ideas for your next holiday in the Gulf of Saint Tropez

Who has never dreamed of spending a holiday in the Saint Tropez region without the traffic jams and all the hustle and bustle of this town on the Côte d’Azur? An old fishing port made famous by Brigitte Bardot, Saint Tropez quickly became the venue for never-to-be-forgotten parties – which sometimes makes people forget the town’s natural attractions.



Who has never dreamed of getting away from it all when you’re in the Saint Tropez region, escaping the traffic jams and hustle and bustle that are so typical of this little gem on the Côte d’Azur? Saint Tropez, once merely a fishing port, owes its fame to Brigitte Bardot and the lavish parties once held here, meaning we sometimes forget its natural attractions.


While the town of Saint Tropez never loses its appeal, the influx of the highly select jet set in summer continues to attract huge numbers of tourists. So, what kind of accommodation is right for you? Should you rent or go for a holiday club or maybe a campsite? Where is the best place to stay to find a hotel with a spa just a few yards from the beach? For an experience with a difference that ticks all the right boxes, discover the Gulf of Saint Tropez in a new light on a holiday at Le Bailli de Suffren****.


The Gulf of Saint Tropez is the perfect spot for a vacation in France lapping up the wonders of Provence. Enjoy a charming break hiking in the Esterel and Maures Massif or touring the surrounding villages. Or spend the day relaxing on the beach or in the spa of the 4-star hotel… or how about an afternoon on the golf course? In short, a packed holiday for getting to know this part of the Var that is the pride of France.


Here are three ideas for things to do on a Mediterranean getaway in the Gulf of Saint Tropez while enjoying an energising weekend at Le Bailli de Suffren**** hotel.



Markets and Provençal haute cuisine


Start your getaway by venturing through the local markets and revelling in the haute cuisine of Provence. It’s easy to visit the cultural riches of the Var from Le Bailli de Suffren, our hotel on the Mediterranean. Soak up the scents and colours of Provence’s picture-postcard markets, find authentic local products and tickle your taste buds with the unique flavour of the Mediterranean. Make the most of the region’s laid-back atmosphere as you savour tasty dishes steeped in the terroir of Provence.


Stroll through the streets of a charming town and village so you can immerse yourself in the beauty of the Gulf of Saint Tropez. Sainte-Maxime, Grimaud, Ramatuelle, Croix Valmer, Gassin, Cogolin… here you’ll find just the right mix of sightseeing, a round of visits, a charming journey and fine food.



Greenway trail: discover the fauna and flora of the Mediterranean


As well as relaxing in the spa at Le Bailli de Suffren and taking it easy on the sandy beach just a few yards away, why not set out on an adventure and explore the land that is the Var? Put your walking shoes on or jump on your bike and head out along the greenway, an old railway line with breathtaking views over the sea and the Maures Massif. Le Bailli de Suffren, a 4-star hotel in the Gulf of Saint Tropez, is the best possible starting point for this adventure on foot or by bike, alone or with your family. Discover the rich fauna and flora of the Mediterranean as you roam through picture-postcard hamlets. You can also check out the coastal paths between the beaches at Gigaro and l’Escalet, or brave the Massif des Maures and Massif de l’Esterel on a hike you’ll never forget.



Wine tasting sessions at local wineries


Immerse yourself in the art of oenology at one of the wine estates in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region. The Gulf of Saint Tropez is bursting with vineyards and incomparable wines. Arrange a tasting session so you can find out more about the local grape varieties with their unique tastes. Companies such as Beyond the Wine organise unforgettable wine-themed experiences so you can get to know the region’s wines in more detail. Soak up the history and passion hidden behind each bottle, and add a hint of sophistication to your getaway to the south.


And how could you holiday in one of France’s favourite seaside destinations without making the most of the azure Mediterranean? Head for the beach and the remarkable coastline of the Gulf of Saint Tropez. Drop off your luggage the moment you arrive at Le Bailli de Suffren, leave your car in the hotel car park, walk across the sandy beach… and dive into the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean. Le Bailli de Suffren has kayaks and paddleboards available for you, and can make reservations for diving trips directly from the pontoon at the Rayol-Canadel-sur-Mer beach, just a few yards from your accommodation. Immerse yourself in the soothing natural surroundings and treat yourself to a rejuvenating weekend or longer family holiday where you can relax and get away from it all.
