Head away from the crowds and the famous beaches and bars. Just off the beaten track in St Tropez, you’ll find these little gems to discover.

Maison des Papillons

Down a back lane in the garden area of St Tropez, you’ll find The Butterfly House. Artist Dany Lartigue has spent years collecting more than 35,000 species of butterfly, both native and exotic. He’s painted intricate background to place his butterflies and has now handed his house over to the town, to enjoy forever.

Au Caprices des Deux

Au Caprices des Deux is a little hangout for the locals. It’s in a stone cottage run by brother and sister Sonia et Stéphane Avelin, who are passionate about food and drink. Book first.

This church isn’t really “hidden” as the bell tower overlooks the entire town, but it isn’t usually on many people’s itineraries. It was built in 1874, in an Italian Baroque style. You aren’t allowed to take photos inside but it has some wonderful statues and artwork. Eglise Paroissiale Notre-Dame de l’Assomption
