Saint Tropez

By Haleigh In Non classé

When the sun finally came out in the South of France, I decided to soak it up in Saint Tropez. The tiny but very famous village is still quiet at this time of year but I preferred it that way as it felt a little bit like my own private beach in some secret spots we found.

We rounded this otherwise seemingly dead end corner of the village to find…

…this tiny little photogenic bay.

We took some pictures…

Watched the waves….

and collected sea glass.

No, these are not hamburgers. They are my new obsession…

…the Tropézienne!!! They are fluffy, creamy, and sweet with a hint of orange flavor. They come in jumbo size, regular size, and….

…the least dangerous mini size.

When it comes to boats in Saint Tropez, just like the Tropézienne, there are small ones…

and not-so-small ones.

I am hoping to be back here on this beach in the summer doing some “bronzage.”

I thought this little cherry red boat fittingly called “Cerise” was so cute parked in front of the epicerie.

Sunset reflecting on the shutters of a building on a small canal.

Another place I would like to sunbathe this summer is this decaying dock.

I managed to find a bit of Bardot lingering in this restaurant painting.

More small boats…

and big boats.

I am so glad the sun finally came out for my visit to Bardot’s old stomping grounds. I hope to be back this summer when it’s warmer. Happy commenting and I hope you enjoy your petit voyage to Saint Tropez with me! Special thanks to French-Kissed as usual for lending her photography skills towards the Bardot blogging cause.

    What a lovely escape on a Monday afternoon…thank you for transporting me to one of my favorite destinations! My husband and I visited St. Tropez a few years ago in October. All the Summer sizzle had disappeared, but the gorgeous essence of this sea-side town remained. We stayed at the Hotel Pastis, and we strolled the empty streets for hours. I look forward to returning again soon.

    I’ve loved seeing your posts from the South of France, it’s probably my favourite part of Europe and I loved visiting Saint Tropez a couple of years ago, I’ll definitely back sometime!

    My gosh, girl! I am so glad you came by my blog and left a link to yours. Your pictures are fantastic and I am digging your style. I am so jealous of your location right now and equally jealous of your proximity to those Tropeziennes. Also, I just picked up a similar pair of sunglasses the other day – love em!
